Infographic – Matt

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2012/02/04/sports/football/most-mentioned-players-on-espn.html

Even though this infographic contains graphics that would be difficult to produce, I think there’s a lot to learn from it. The main thing I like is how quick it takes to get the point of the infographic. Just by reading the title and glancing at the picture, you immediately understand how often Tim Tebow is mentioned on “Sportscenter” compared to other players and coaches in the NFL.  

I also liked how drastic the differences in sizes of players were. Being a Falcons fan, I immediately looked for Matt Ryan. It took a while, because he is about the same height as Tim Tebow’s middle finger, Tom Brady’s football and Cam Newton’s thigh. Although it is simple data, the way it is displayed really makes it effective.
