I don't know about today being the gold standard. For one I think it's impossible to fairly compare players across eras, especially when it's more than 20 years. Just too many factors and changes involved.

I think if anything the comparisons should be slanted towards todays players simply because there are more people playing the sport and it has evolved and advanced a lot. I find it being slanted the other way in this section, and I shouldn't be surprised cause it's the history section, but it's difficult to listen to when it seems like backwards logic much of the time.
