Fun with tables

Here's a little table I put together. The FIFA rankings don't always tell the whole story about the relative strength of the world's soccer teams, so I put together an aggregate ranking including the Elo Ratings (January 3rd snapshot), Elephant Rankings (19 November 2005), and Mark Ziaian's own personal ranking system (31 December 2005). If you know of any other rankings being published, please leave a comment.

Look for more of these and some comparative analysis of the ranking systems to come. Here is the top 20, check here for the full list.
