Sonny Moore's Power Ratings

My Power Ratings were devised in 1974. This hobby began so I could estimate the score difference prior to a game and be able to rank teams in order from best to worst. A team's ranking is based on its power and overall strength, on how many points that team would win or lose by when compared to all other teams within that sport. So, this explains why team A may have a higher power rating than team B, even though team B may have beaten team A or have a better won/lost record. The most recent games played are more meaningful in compiling the ratings. A diminishing returns principle is used to prevent higher rated teams from gaining power rating points and moving up in the rankings when the victory margin is being run up against a weaker team. The ratings are compiled by using only statistical and historical data.
