Well it played a small role in a petty spat, but the people involved were fairly famous. Author Malcolm Gladwell was ripping author Steven Pinker, who had unfavorably reviewed his new book. One of his criticisms was the fact that:
"Pinker’s third source was an article in the Columbia Journalism Review, prompted by my essay, that made an argument partly based on a link to a blog called “Niners Nation."
He uses us as a belittling shot, obviously unaware of the quality analysis happening here daily.
The article he references was this one, which was actually a review of some Football Outsiders stats. Ironically I think Gladwell cited his own stats from F.O. in the original piece on QBs that caused the argument. So its all pretty convoluted and unresearched on his part.....but funny place to come across the site.
