I just revisited a topic from a few years ago. I pitted this year's Panthers versus last expecting a close game but last years team coming out on top. However, I was surprised when, in the first game, this years team stomped last years. I tried a few more times and this years team won 2 out of 3. I know it's just a sim, but I thought it could spur some interesting conversation.
I did it a few more times and last years team (despite being the home team) has only won one matchup.
