Is there a sense of how "solved" soccer is? Like is it possible that the bulk of teams are playing with utterly sub optimal strats?

I mean soccer is not that complicated. Coaches seem to occasionally play ******o lineups but its not like there are great plays to be drawn up or whatever.

Not super familiar but things like number and length of high intensity runs, %passes complete, shots on/off target, position tracking are used. All of which all more or less useless without context of course.

Can't vouch for the content but the Sloan conference had a soccer analytics panel the last two years

Not sure why Drew Carey is on the 2012 panel though?

I went to the 2012 panel. Carey owns the Seattle Sounders. Actually a pretty intelligent guy. You'd be surprised.

short for vigorish. just like in gambling where you have to pay the bookmaker a small fee to place your bet, the vig in ww is the little piece of your sanity you give away every time you play.

I have no idea how people keep up with WW. Do people play it rapid-fire all day? It's amazing how many posts those threads generate.

I pronounce it Vig as in Big, but I'm assuming POG fegs pronounce it vig as in the first syllable of vigilante.

You just do the best you can. You're going to miss a ton or have to be reminded of a ton.
