I know you're just going to use the "it was the first thing to come to my head" defense, but really, you couldn't have found a less insulting comparison?
It was the first thing to come to my head.

...we aren't pretending anything...well...I'm not. The point wasn't a comparison of Kosov to Byfuglien (in fact, the latter's name doesn't appear in my post at all til the end- it doesn't appear to be the main topic of conversation either), it was an example of how stats can lead us astray sometimes.
