Neil Paine Joining FiveThirtyEight

As you may have heard, Neil Paine is joining Nate Silver at FiveThirtyEight.com. Neil, in addition to being a good friend and one of the men responsible for making this site a reality, has also written some great articles at Football Perspective. And, he’s even got another article or two on tap before he heads off to FiveThirtyEight.

So in addition to thanking Neil for all his great work, and to congratulate him on getting the platform he justly deserves, I wanted to make sure my readers all knew where to find Neil in 2014. I’m sure he’ll be checking this post from time to time, so feel free to leave Neil a note in the comments.


  • Look at all you former PFR guys, moving up in the world.

    Congrats Neil!

    Great opportunity. And impressive. I recommend Nate Silver’s book “The Signal and the Noise” for all of you who follow this blog.

  • Somehow I missed this post earlier.

    Congratulations to Neil! I look forward to seeing how FiveThirtyEight works out. I was rather excited about it, but then Silver’s book made me a bit nervous that it will be a overly basic for me. However, hiring Neil Paine is definitely a sign that my worry may be completely wrong, so I’m back to excited. 🙂
