If you are like me and DVR sports from time to time, you know how tempting it can be to fast forward to the good parts.
Evan Schumacher’s ShouldIWatch.com is a website that will help people decide if they want to watch their DVR’ed games, without knowing the final score or who won. It only lets you see if one team got blown out, the other team got blown out or if the game overall was a blowout.
I would love to see a site like this for English Premier League and other soccer games that includes other readily accessible data like total goals, shots, yellow cards, red cards and fouls. This would tell me if a game was worth watching. I could create an “excitement formula” to give a score to tell me whether a game was worth watching.
I am sure this would be easy to do and people could change the weight of the data to fit their preferences for exciting matches. This way, I could decide if I wanted to spend 90 valuable minutes of my free time watching a boring 0-0 draw without knowing the outcome beforehand.
