I think the point is that a guy like Button is presumed to have seen a lot more of these guys. Yes it is possible that someone from the THW has, in fact, seen more of these players. But it is not likely. So if Craig Button ranks guys 1-90, people can safely assume that he knows what he is talking about. If I rank guys 1-90, I don't think too many people would feel that it holds as much weight as Craig Button.
