No, they're. But in the specific case we're discussing, an expanded pool of possible players certainly makes more talented players available, but does not necessarily make more-talented players. Having more of them does not mean the top 1% are any more talented than they used to be. It's just that the top 1% might be 100 players instead of 50.

Stick to the arguments and avoid the personal stuff, and discussions will generally be more productive.
