Heavy Lifting - thoughts and web finds by an economist

A "sports economics" paper that asks whether there is a connection between quarterback intelligence, passing efficiency, and NFL salaries:
Intelligence and Football: Testing for Differentials in Collegiate Quarterback Passing Performance and NFL Compensation
It isn't so important where the paper was published, but it is somewhat interesting that the result is a non-result. The author finds no relationship between intelligence and performance, nor between intelligence and salaries. Which must mean that salaries are based on performance? Well, not necessarily. I have never been successful in publishing a non-result. I must be submitting to the wrong journals.
I find it useful that studies that cannot reject the null hypothesis can get published.Post a Comment
By the way, could you add a link, or publication information to this?
