Celebrate advanced football statistics with the ‘Dorks Value Only Analytics’ t-shirt!

In honor of Football Outsiders’ work (and those who appreciate it), we’re letting our nerd flag fly.

DYAR, ANY/A, EPA, CPOE ... football is becoming an alphabet soup to rival baseball. But one acronym stands out above all the rest: DVOA.

The stat that caused a thousand Twitter wars is now a t-shirt from Acme Packing Company, BreakingT, and of course, Football Outsiders, the fine folks who developed DVOA in the first place. So what if the acronym really stands for Defense-adjusted Value Over Average — those stat nerds just need to get their heads out of their spreadsheets!

The shirt is now available at BreakingT, coming in two colors — dark green and gray — and in both t-shirt and hooded sweatshirt options.

As a reminder, Acme Packing Company donates 100% of our proceeds from the sale of t-shirts to charity. Given the math-focused topic of the shirt, we have chosen a charity that promotes STEM education, primarily for underserved communities and populations: the National Math and Science Initiative.

So if you just can’t get enough of percent signs in your stat sheet and think that football is the same as blackjack, pick up one of these and let your nerd flag fly.

A note on sizing: the t-shirts have a tailored fit, so if you’re between sizes, we recommend ordering the larger size.
