[QUOTE]The logic is this: The Pats were never a dynasty, as so many have claimed. They won 3 Super Bowl over 4 years, but edged out each win by a total of exactly 3 points each. 3 wins over 4 seasons is not a dynasty. The Celtics were a dynasty in the 60's. The won 11 titles in 13 years, and continued to win 6 of the next 20 years, maintaining their status as one of the premier teams in the NBA. The PAts on the other hand have won 3 titles in 50 years. During that time there were an average of about 25 teams. So the odds of any team winning are 1 out of 25 or 4%. The Pats won 3 times in 51 years or 5.8% of the time. They are a good franchise....but have never have been a dynasty or even close.

Stupid AND a moron too! I'll bet your buddies on that little yellow bus must REALLY look up to you!
Every team has a 4% chance to win teh Super Bowl? How long did it take you to come up with that using your Sesame St calculator? Seems to me that the oddsmakers in Vegas have a different take on that when they set the odds before the pre-season begins. Some teams have better odds at repeating than others. You see, Spanky, every team has a "chance" to win it, but when facing stronger/better teams, that chanced, albeit slim, go steadily downhill. Call me crazy, wild, and impetuous, but I'll believe teh oddsmakers before I will your "logic".
You're lame computation assumes that every NFL team is "equal" to the others. You go tell that to the Panthers, Cardinals, Bills, and Bengals. Even THEY would laugh you out of town. Let's look at the JESTS!... 1 (you can count it on your right big toe... NO! you're "other" right big toe). Using your computation, that's @ 2% of teh time. Then there's the Giants, with 3 spead out titles, givingthem the same percentage as the Pats.
BTW, the best if using your "25" teams, you should have done something called "research". 1970, POST merger, is the year to start determining your innane percentage. prior to that, the Pats played in the AFL only. Now, the difference between 1970 and 2010 is... 40 years! (With being a victim of a public education in NY, and the child of union workers, I can see how easily this "40" becomes "50", until such time in teh futire it'll undoubtedly become "30" to fit your "logic".)
The only way your cockeyed numbers work is if you're trying to make a comparrison to the Yankmees. If that's the case, go to another board.
