 	I DON'T know. I'm merely offering my opinion and as such reveal my
 	ideas, feelings, guesses about a topic based on my assessment of
 	the facts. An opinion makes no claim to be incontravertable fact.
 	If you want that go to the stat book. And anybody can offer an
 	opinion. We don't have to be drug counselors, psychologists,
 	personal trainers, if this were the case there's very little we'd
 	be able to talk about here.
 	I hope I've cleared this up.

 	You don't get out much, do you?
 p	I think the correct term for a person like you is "anal retentive."
 	Comparing fighter X to fighter Y is a great way to talk about a
 	fighter and even if it weren't where does it say you can't do it
 	as you seem to think?
 	You really do have some kind of straight-line method of thinking
 	about fighters that you should keep to yourself.
 	With all the alphabet sanctioning bodies and wacky judges the last
 	thing we need is someone telling us how and why we can't talk about
 	fighters in a certain way.
