When sports rules go awry

Graham Kendall and Liam Lenten ()

European Journal of Operational Research, 2017, vol. 257, issue 2, 377-394

Abstract: Wright (2014) recently presented a survey of sporting rules from an Operational Research (OR) perspective. He surveyed 21 sports, which consider the rules of sports and tournaments and whether changes have led to unintended consequences. The paper concludes: “Overall, it would seem that this is just a taster and there may be plenty more such studies to come”. In this paper we present one such study.
