I was going to say something about that wording, but I thought I'd look like an anti-Connell propagandist...but yeah, I'm of the opinion that there was ample time in all these game summaries and articles and manager votings and all that to praise Connell and outside of some small patches here and there, it doesn't really happen. His best friend and a former teammate saying that he was better than Benedict at the end of his career and as good as Worters isn't going to be quite enough evidence to be labeled as any more than anecdotal for me personally.

When you read those old articles, they use a lot of superlatives to describe the best players and they do it often...am I incorrect in that? Is that just confirmation bias? Connell just doesn't get that type of praise...it might not be much, but it's noticeable...

He's no schlub...he belongs, just not now...
