No, Battleship's was not the only post that was void of bias in the thread but it was eye catching to me because of his accuracy, attention to detail and I couldn't agree with him more on some of his points.
With regards to BOOBS, he was defending Big Behn so I don't know why your including him in your comments to me.
I certainly won't deny Behn's fighting ability. In trying to do research to rank these guys I find so many disappointing fights when two fighters go at it when they are both on top of their game, or both in the top 5-7 the year they fought. It certainly was not that way with Behn. Every fight he went at it and had some great wars. It's hard to find a lot of statement fights for some of these guys but though Wilson may not have won them all, he made the statement that he was going to go full tilt no matter the competition every time he fought. Probert - Brown was another great one as detailed very well by srehm in a thread he made.
Couldn't agree more about BS25's post and that is something we have all come to expect. It just seemed like you were claiming there was a lot of bias going on before that and I failed to see that. I included Boobs because when you use a word like "intervention" it seemed to imply what I felt you were saying. I simply thought that saying Wilson dominated legends was doing a favor to Wilson, and he doesn't really need any favors. Neither of us were bashing Wilson so no intervention was needed as it was a done deal.
And think about this Spider. Was it really a bad move on my part to steer the conversation away from a certain player? In the end we get to see how some great posters (Boobs, BS25) scored some of Wilson's closest battles which was a huge bonus.
