    Judge Comment: This may be a smaller section in terms of page count, but the content, design and smart layout packs a nice visual punch. The "What's Inside" page offers a nice road map to the content, and the layout makes the most of the space inside. Stats, team tidbits are set off with crisp, eye-catching photos.
