EN: I take a retrospective look at my earlier paper (Fort, 2000) that argued the differences between North American and European sports leagues (and some elements of sport in general) are overblown. I stick to my guns, primarily on “objective functions are different” but subsequent work in sports economics clearly shows that “fans are different” and “organizations are different”. As a result, further comparative work on differences between North American and European sports leagues is certainly in order.
