Impressive, but if they are really the best of Pele, or close to his best, I'm sorry, but Leo is better.
Series at The Athletic. Gated, but if you have access, some excellent pieces. My favorites: "Willis Reed--NBA Finals, Game 7," "1986 World Series," and, of course, "28-3: told from both sides of the fence".

Research seems to show the answer to the first question is it depends on the sport, but there is a home-field advantage in all of them. The answer to the second may well be this: "Apparently, when the crowd sits closer to the field, the officials are more susceptible to getting caught up in the home-crowd emotion."
