Intellectually Honest Posted December 4, 2015 Share Posted December 4, 2015 Except that it's not just players....it's TEAMS and personnel departments. And analysts. And no, I'm not asserting a fallacy as I am not suggesting that their "authority" or the authority of their users results in the establishment of a FACT through the use of deductive logic. I said they were a voice. Now, you seem to be adhering to a system of opinion-based relativism, which has its own logical issues. Yes, they have an opinion. Yes, you have an opinion. However, there is nothing to suggest that the two opinions are of equal weight or map to reality in an equally accurate fashion. To assume the "its just an opinion" is correct is to undermine almost everything ever stated outside of the realm of mathematics and deductive logic. Not all voices or "eyeballs" are equal. And to PFF's credit, they have received a degree of sponsorship from a lot of qualified eyeballs. So what. It doesn't make it any more than just an opinion. It doesn't matter if the over whelming vast majority of football viewers use it: from fans to owners. That is just an appeal to popularity. A popular opinion holds no more weight than an unpopular one. Without a methodology and using empirical evidence and logic to make those inferences it doesn't mean squat.
