Pats win more than 75 percent of coin tosses. Statistical impossibility— Dan Shaughnessy (@Dan_Shaughnessy) December 20, 2015
Aren't alleged professional writers obliged to be somewhat precise with words? The odds of winning a lottery are in the millions to one range, but it is not impossible to win a lottery. Conversely, winning coin tosses at a 75% rate translates to 4 to 1 odds, which makes this situation improbable, but not a 'statistical impossibility'. It's self-evident numbers are not Shank's strong suit.
