It is interesting to think about EA’s assets and the current state of the digital game economy in light of the challenges a new leader at EA might face.
The lack of really important football analytics contributions on display at SSAC '13, particularly compared to the great leaps forward being made in basketball, makes me wonder. Is there less here than meets the eye?
I love this conference (for my take on last year's SSAC, click here). I have zero professional connection to the world of sports business or analytics, and I rarely discover anything investable here, but I still find this two-day affair one of the most thought provoking and fascinating on my calendar.
