So 2 out of the last 4 hosts have either had an under .500 record or never reached this .600%.
So they both made the playoffs, or not? I forgot about the Oceanic to tell you the truth but they still made the playoffs and so did the Blades. I think your point about the Blades is telling - people were worried about them at a .570 winning percentage. Miss the playoffs + have a ~.450 winning percentage = burnt toast.
