Going all the way down to top ten seasons introduces something of a modern bias, in my opinion.

But let's see an apples-to-apples comparison first, and then we can discuss the best way to actually evaluate what the numbers are telling us.
Agreed, I have the war years on the brain from doing a Rayner bio earlier and those centers will definitely be punished by 10 years. That said we're okay for this purpose.
