I dont need to back up my claims. facts and true always remain so.
And no your thinking nor mine will change that.
Truth is simple truth. regardless of what any man say.
After that I dont really insult others. normally its the other way around. but its not my job to make others find facts.
To know the truth is one owns job.
And I just to often see peopel writing things with nothing behind, and making replies to people actually trying to show them something new and real that make no sense, or is just attacks, lies or wrong..
So there is nothing misleading about the statistic firstly. it says just what it claims. the number of people living each plays. so already there are your claim wrong. but trying to make the right claim wrong..
And that is stupid.
Then you have a personal feeling that it means nothing with the numbers, you are ofc allowed to feel such. but first it is a personal feeling not a fact.
And second I feel something else. based on its actually a thing that is made statistics about, not only in sports but when comparing countries in all things. from school system and money, polution, everything, the ratio of people living in the nation is used.
Its one of the most relavant things in talking things, and comparing nations. something this thread leads to.
And ofc it is relavant in talking players also. that is why its done in other sports, from football, to swimming. the olympics have offical scores where its down to medals per capita...
So in your attempt at me. you bassicly call the system the whole world use irrelavant.. something that is used to bring context because it matters..
The more people you have the more tere is to play a sport.
So to make it make sense that is what is used. so if lets take OL 2017 in Rio. the us won most medals. 121. but since all nation do not have the same amount of people how do you compare.. by those numbers you call irrelevant.. and that actually put the US from 1 place to 44. because smaller nations got way more out of the few people they have compared to the US and won more medals per capita.. that is a really relavant thing. because that tell a more correct story. to compare to nations on the medal number is more irrelavant if one have 300 million and the other 5, than compareing per capita..
Its the same with players over all. it gives a more complete image..
And that is why I call the statement stupid. because it is.
First you make a wrong claim, that is always stupid.
And secondly even though a personal feeling. you call something that is more relavant than what you claim, irrelavant.
Something the whole world use..
And that is sort of not very smart too.
There is nothing insulting in me calling that stupid. because it is.
And that I say americans always make other laughs. that could be said to be, i grant you. but I just wonder why these things always come from americans. nationalist to the end. no matter facts or truths. blind to the state of their nation.
