“Competitive Balance in Sports Leagues: An Introductionâ€

Rodney Fort and Joel Maxcy ()

Journal of Sports Economics, 2003, vol. 4, issue 2, 154-160

Abstract: The authors summarize the literature on competitive balance to point out that there is no need for Zimbalist's editorial position that a single measurement of competitive balance is the correct measure, whereas others are not. Different measurements are of different use, and all lines of research into competitive balance have, to date, proven quite instructive. To ignore this is to forgo important insights into the behavior of competitive balance.
