Yes, comparing to average would show how far above average star players are, but really, who cares? If the value of the average changes, I really don't give a rat's ass how far a player is above average, and I don't see why anyone else would.

Right now with VsX a 85 in 1968 is treated the same as a 85 in 1966 by most people as being equivalent.. exactly the issue that you're afraid of..
Why would I be afraid of that? If the standard used to create VsX is properly calibrated, an 85 before and after expansion should be treated equally.

You seem to be proposing that the best players suddenly became significantly better in 1968 than they were in 1967, because suddenly they were farther above the league average. You can't possibly think that that is a rational result, can you?
