If you apply the same rule to hockey, there's a clear cut 7 teams with a shot at the Presidents Trophy out of 30, which is roughly 23%.
Furthermore, parity is still evident in English soccer. Look no further to last week Wigan defeating Manchester City in the FA cup. Or if you want to look at the standings, look at Liverpool vs. Man Utd. last year vs. this year.
