I'm not denying that there is a difference in literal, immediate effect (i.e., one hurts more than the other), what I'm questioning is how you guys can be sure that one is more likely to result in a win than the other.

In other words, is there a way to measure the effect of the extra pain on winning? And if not, how do you know it makes any difference?
