That's a big reason I feel that Hart voting records and "Hart Shares" are very suspect criteria to use across eras unless you clearly define which set of standards you plan to use. You can' really compare the Hart results from the 50s to those of the 80s and say they meant the same thing.

Unless you plan to argue that Hart voting is also suspect, you can't really denigrate MVP voting in other leagues based on the same reasons.
I don't see any denigrating. I see a legitimate question asked.
