Yes and no. I think it’s more like the high school kid who put forth their very best effort, told all their classmates loudly and repeatedly how they wrote the best book report ever, managed to get a C+/B- and then made all sorts of excuses on why they weren’t given a 100%.
I think you put a lot of effort into this, but I see a couple of things that create all the dust up here. The first is your lack of self awareness combined with your huge ego. You just can’t admit you were wrong, probably about as much as many here give or take, and it really rubs people the wrong way when they see the obvious and then have to read all your sophomoric rationalizations.
I think the bigger issue with your positions is that you go in with preconceived conclusions and then try to twist evidence on the tape to support them. A good example is the Taylor debacle and how you post a highlight link showing some magnificent talent by the most prolific RB in college football history and then ignore the obvious to try to tear him down because of some illusion that he tripped over his own feet at one point in one brilliant TD run. Most here see the overt but for some reason you just have to try to create a flaw. The only reason I can think of is that you’ve already made your decision before you even watched the evidence. People see that same evidence and then read you describing something completely different than what appeared clear on the tape, and then further read you twisting yourself into knots trying to argue condescentionally that you’re superior to them and that’s why they can’t possibly see what you see and why they all have to be wrong.
I’ll be completely candid - I think you’re really a hard worker and really do want to help people out with how much you put into your product, but I’m so put off by your defensive snarkiness and inability to admit what become obvious misses that I’ve gotten to the point where I just don’t give your judgment of players much credibility. I’d be much more impressed and willing to listen to your positions if you’d just admit when your predictions didn’t match the output. I think others may feel likewise but I won’t speak for them. Your inflated self-worth, braggadocio and blatant rationalizations just overwhelm what could really be fine work. It’s too bad really, given how much of yourself you clearly put into your work.
Take it for whatever it’s worth, which is probably enough to scrape up for a refill coffee at 7-11.
