Some of you might recall we voted for the 49ers billboard and won it only to have our team lose out to the Giants. So by default the Giants, who had the more votes than the Patriots, won the billboard in support of their Super Bowl bid. Then their team smacked down their fan's support by not accepting the billboard? Go figure?
Anyway, the bottom line is that the mathematics involved indicates,
... that the probability of NYG winning SB XLVI is not likely.
I am not a mathematician, so I have to go by the track record they posted of when a team that turns this billboard down winds up going on to lose the SB. That's 3-3 not including SB XLVI. What can I say... go Patriots!
OK, now I get it. When Morales says, "Both fans (1) and their team (2) form a dichotomy. One cannot exist without the other. When a team negates their fan's choice -X, they in turn negate their own potential -Y."as illustrated in the image below:
