See, that is why, I'm open-minded about this book. We can all come up with a few examples or anecdotes.
This, then, becomes a never endind serie of examples. This doesn't enlighten the debate.
Verifiable statistics can give a much better light on this issue.
The fact that 40% of regular francophone players received individual honors for their performances should raise eyebrows.
