You've found the EastBayRag vote page. Here, you get the opportunity to let us know what you think. Each week, we will have votes on important issues. Well, probably not important issues, more like trivial things that come to mind on a Sunday morning after a belly full of beer from a Saturday night.

This week's current vote is shown above. After the votes are in, EBR will provide in depth analysis of the results so you can find out if you are running with the crowd or if you're out there on your own. You never know, you may even learn something, but that's highly unlikely. Analysis of last week's vote is shown below. If you want to see historic votes, checkout the vote archives.

Oh! And the cool thing before I forget, the graphs update as you vote ...... Wow! And what's more, the colors are allocated randomly, so each time you refresh the page, you will see different colors on the graphs. (F5 is normally the shortcut key to refresh, but may depend on your browser.) Go on .... try it.

Analysis of Last Week's Vote

The following question was presented:

With all the phenomenal sporting events that have gone on this weekend, notably Lewis Hamilton winning again and doing it on home soil, along with the England football team winning on penalties (I didn’t even know that was an option, I’m so used to watching us go out to those), we have to ask a sporting question and we’ll go with football. Now we’re down to the semi finals, let’s see if you can predict the winner. Which country do you think will win the major soccer tournament going on?

Results:

Uruguay was the clear winner with 40% of the votes selected from the following:

  • Argentina (30%)
  • Canada (20%)
  • Columbia (10%)
  • Uruguay (40%)

Analysis:

First, let me say congratulations to Spain for winning Euro 2024. As disappointed as I am, I have to acknowledge that Spain were the best team throughout the tournament and the better team in the final. England did get better as the tournament went on, but just didn’t have enough to win.

Moving on to the subject of the question, Argentina were victorious taking the country and Messi to new records in the Copa America, so congratulations to them too. I did vote for Uruguay. I thought they played well to get to the semi final, but sadly they didn’t progress any further. Looks like the majority of you either thought or hoped it would be Uruguay.
