I have question for MH. I wanted to post it here cause "who the worst fans in fb" is already off topic as it is. Anyway remember when we were discussing the desegregation of the MLB? You thought once the league started letting African Americans into the league, more talent was coming into the league (which I agreed with)and you suggested that stats from before the desegregation werent as...Ill say important.( I didnt agree with)
How come you dont share the same view when the AFL and NFL merged? Granted its a tad different, the MLB was bringing in individuals and the AFL brought their teams into the NFL, but I believe the premise is the same regarding talent.
Its a different argument. Your argument isn't the argument we were making. Clearly, the individual accomplishments of all sports back when African-Americans couldn't participate, are to be taken with a grain of salt. But team championships are a bit different.
But if you want to go there Dez, then all those Yankee championships from the 20's and 30's are in question.
That exactly what I said to gentlegiant about the Eagles championship.
But I stand by my point that records prior to blacks in baseball are all kinda BS. It's all kind of subjective I guess, but...it brings me back to the Tosh debate:
If youre going to put an asterisk next to barry bonds, then ya gotta put one next to babe ruth (not that ruth's records stand anymore).
