About Massive Report Data
Massive Report Data is part of the Massive Report family of sites, which is in turn part of the SBNation network. Massive Report is dedicated to providing the highest quality coverage of the Columbus Crew. This site is not intended to provide information about current events or the latest games; fans are encouraged to visit the parent site for timely coverage of the Crew and Major League Soccer.
This site is designed and curated by Matthew Bernhardt, statistician and historian for Massive Report. It is built upon a database of information covering the entire history of the Columbus Crew, from their first game on April 13, 1996 through the present day.
Beyond the simple facts, this site also attempts to analyze trends lying within the numbers. There are a great number of companies that perform similar analyses, and do so very well. This site follows a different strategy by considering only a minimum of source information: players, games, substitutions, and goals. Even from this limited data, however, it is possible to learn a great deal.
