Also, as I mentioned, a big reason why overagers are perceived to have an advantage is due to their increased physical stature. This factor is negligible when it comes to the still smallish Akeson.
These are factors you need to consider when forming your opinion.
I disagree that physical size is a big reason why overagers have an an advantage. It's about experience level and maturity as a player. And it's not a perception. It's a reality. And Akeson's smallish size has little to do with it. He's a overager, plain and simple.
