Last year, I had the great privilege of writing a weekly column for ESPN Australia & NZ, dubbed ‘Footy Forensics’. Unfortunately I won’t be able to do it again this year, as I don’t have nearly as much time available for footy stats. Thanks very much to the team at ESPN, I really appreciated the chance to write for the site. I’ll still post at The Arc, but posts will be sporadic. I’ll have my Elo-based predictions running and will occasionally post on topics that strike my interest. I’ve also started blogging on non-footy topics at mattcowgill.com, so check that out if you’re interested.
