Hi everyone,

This is Jon (owner of this site). I found this set of graphics at the Washington Post this week and posted them to Twitter to simply ask what you would call them. Little did I know how much people would hate them! Now, I’ve seen this graphic type before, I think in ESPN the Magazine, and they also popped up on BBC today, so they’re around.

Anyways, here’s the data in an Excel file. Have at it and let’s see what folks come up with.
