DOM Episode 53 – Sigmund Bloom (@SigmundBloom)

We’re a week out from the 2019 season and the offseason debates will finally be settled. Sort of. Through the chaos that is the regular season, it can be hard to find definitive proof who’s right or wrong. Right, wrong, or right for the wrong reasons still gives us an opportunity to review the information we used to get us to our decision. Our process is always something we can adjust and a healthy combination of analytics and narratives can get us there. There’s nobody better than the Mayor of Narrative Street to give us insight into how to use them to our advantage. Bloom outlines his thought process to the DOM crew using the 2019 offseason as a backdrop. With the season upon us, it’s time to pay attention and wait for new information to adjust our strategy.
