How many years, or thousands of games...

did it take for you to realize that TEAM ability mattered?

That it wasn't just a simple matter of saying, "Pancho is hot, Cisco is hot, my pick is Pancho-Cisco"?

For me not very long. In the beginning I used my HP calculator to compute 5-3-1 scores for players for their last few perfs. Obvious problem that I encountered immediately is that if a back was not doing well at all, but was paired with Bolivar a lot in that sample, and Bolivar happened to be on a roll with him, then this player got a high rating. But that rating was completely due to Bolivar and flopped when applied to his other partners.

But maybe not everyone would agree. If A is on fire, and B is on fire, and A-B have a horrible, unplayable record, maybe NOW is the time they will finally win.

What I'm really asking is: If you agree that specific 'team chemistry' matters, did you have that realization fairly quickly?
