I already tried that. Its no use. Stat-based arguments carry no weight here. Statistics have virtually no correlation to a players' actual value. Value is determined solely by polls and rankings.
It's kinda like getting pulled over for speeding...
Do you have any idea how fast you were going?
Yes officer, I was doing 63 mph.
No, I clocked you doing 76 in a 65 mph zone on my radar gun.
That can't be right. I just polled all 5 passengers in my vehicle, and the consensus is that I was only doing 63. Ya know, sometimes those numbers on your radar gun aren't correct. Its a bad judge of the actual speed of my vehicle.
But the radar gun is the best way we have to tell exactly how fast you were going.
C'mon officer! I mean, even my wife always complains about how slow I drive. Out of all my friends, I was ranked the slowest driver, and the one least likely to speed.
Well, you convinced me. I can't believe I was naive enough to bring the radar gun into this discussion. If you and your passengers say you weren't speeding, then that must be fact. I am very sorry to bother you. Carry on, and remember, buckle up!
