the most competitive sport

This paper claims that baseball and soccer are the most competitive sports while basketball and football are the least competitive.

The methodology of this paper looked at regular season games and compares the distribution of teams according to their record with a distribution that would indicate parity. Not sure what to make of this methodology, but it flies in the face of what I would have thought. For example,  I always thought that the NFL was a very competitive sporting league, and so I’m not sure why this is not reflected in this study.
