I have no problem with you or anyone saying the Leafs are tougher. My problem is people saying "No the Leafs are tougher, you're wrong what I'm saying is fact".
I'm usually not so adamant and argue this much here (out side of politics threads lol), but the fact that people just can't admit that giving your opinion on who's tougher is just that, an opinion. There is nothing official
You use great facts to back up opinion, but it's still just an opinion. See what I'm saying? Look through the thread and you'll see I've been pretty consistent that what I'm arguing is the definition of fact vs opinion, not what those opinions are.
And my comment about fight percentages was just trying to point out that using the fight winner percentage of hockeyfights.com is flawed as large elements of homers affect the voting. If that's not what you meant by percentages, I apologize.
I'm sure you were the Captain of your Debate Team/Club or whatever. Is there not a point at which you say "OK EVERYONE. FOR NOW - at least UNTIL Orr, Brown, McLaren, and Frazer get KO'd or TKO'd" I'll just have to accept that this TML team is tougher than mine? If not please tell me the colour of the sky in your world. I'm curious.
