Ahead of Its Time

28th February 2022 at 4:56pm

Credit must be given to Lex Postma of Rickies.co for expanding on the "ahead of its time" idea by also including how far ahead each pick was, which enabled stats like these at the bottom of the page, and is generally a fantastic idea that I hadn't even considered.
