easy now; you sound like you're ignoring context for the benefit of your argument. Please be reasonable.
Thanks for that on Burns. Is it fair to assume that some of the most talent per capita - so to speak - accumulated right in that time just before expansion? Thus, allowing expansion to occur, in some respects?

And I know, I'm just fooling regarding my response to your division winner thing. I know what kind of stigma it carries with it, I'm being intentionally obtuse on that particular matter. It doesn't take away from what Campbell has accomplished though. Which is a battle I'll resume with you as time allows. I've had fun with it so far.
