Makes you wonder if Lou has a statistician that gets this in-depth. The real headache comes when you have to take that and assign a value to it over a number of years based on how you expect it to go in the future. I don't envy having to make the call on Clarkson
Personally, I doubt it because it's just quantifying what you already know.
When statistics statistically bring you no closer to final decision - it's not worth the money to pay a dude to take all that time drafting them up. This info is really cool, but as Tri said not enough to really base anything on. But you may well have some nutjob on your staff who loves this kind of thing and can find time to do it in addition to his real job, as Tri does, then it's nice to get for free.
