Of course if the league gets tougher, Chris Nilan and the gang are going to be hurt more than the top point getters and to think otherwise is pretty absurd and baseless imo.
I don't think saying that only someone having a "vested interest" could argue against it is fair.
I think sometimes people can get so caught up in the numbers and the math that they let common sense, among other observations, drop by the wayside.

The old saying "Can't see the forest for the trees" has been used in this thread.

There have always been and will continue to be players that defy the numbers.
