We were pondering what the odds would look like if bookies had a market out for Britannia Bowl II. To aid the creation of such a thing, Sandslasher Scott Westwood conducted a poll of owners asking for their rating of each team in UK Dynasty (you can tell the off-season is in full flow, right?).
|Team||Average score||Make playoffs?|
|Coventry Eagles (S)||8.17||100%|
|Wigan Wombats (N)||7.17||91.7%|
|Chippenham Packers (S)||7.17||58.3%|
|Nottingham Bandits (N)||6.67||41.7%|
|Gateshead Spartans (N)||6.58||58.3%|
|Hereford Chargers (S)||6.33||75%|
|Andover Sandslashers (S)||6.00||33.3%|
|Derby Otters (N)||5.67||58.3%|
|Irish Flyers (N)||5.67||50%|
|Oxford Seahawks (S)||5.33||25%|
|Oxford Pythons (S)||5.08||8.3%|
|Bradford Championz (N)||4.83||0%|
Some ‘fun’ facts
- The Coventry Eagles scored highly across the board, averaging 8.17, a full point higher than the closest rivals, and were the only team selected as a playoff contender by all 12 owners.
- Only the Oxford Seahawks and Bradford Championz failed to score a single score higher than 7, and the Championz were the only team not selected as a playoff contender by any owner.
- The Bradford Championz were the most controversial team in that they had the wildest range of scores from 1 to 7, but the Irish Flyers and Oxford Pythons also elicited differing opinions, both receiving a smorgasbord of ratings from 3 right up to 8.
- The Gateshead Spartans were the most consistently graded team, with ten scores of either 6 or 7, and the other two only dropping down to 5 and up to 8.
