That does not mean that raw stats don't still hold some value in the first example nor does that mean that adjusted stats don't still hold some value in the second example though.

Comparing players from different eras is not about ONLY using one or the other. You use both as well as anything else you can get your hands on.
Sure but what do raw stats of say the top goal scorers in 80 compared to 09 tell us?

Not very much. that's why the use of adjusted stats is way more meaningful to compare those 2 groups of players.

Your hangup on adjusted stats has more to do with your arguments about Wayne that it does with logic or even math.
