The authors show that (a) a kicker’s general ability is a reliable indicator of his success rate, (bi) a kicker’s specialization rate increases with his general ability, and (c) left-footed kickers who present a minority within the total population are characterized by a higher success rate. Consequently, the authors establish that more able kickers show a higher degree of specialization. Their greater specialization, however, has neither an adverse nor a beneficial impact on their success rate. All the theoretical predictions are in line with empirical evidence from the German national soccer league.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Wedow, Michael</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2010</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Friehe, Tim</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: Journal of sports economics ; 12 (2011), 1. - S. 81-105</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <dc:creator>Wedow, Michael</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
