    So fascinated at why you think Bradman is "overrated" in your sig. How is it possible to overrate a guy who is without doubt the most dominant sportsperson in the history or sport?

    "He would've averaged 50 in any other time. And so would Wally Hammond"

    Well Hammond averaged 50 in his time too. But Bradman averaged double that so I'm not getting the logic.

    increase competitiveness 5%
    difference in differences (btwn players) wil b reduced by 50%
    thats how it works

    otherwise

    dhyanchandh = greatest field hockey player / most dominant sports person (along wth don and w.g)
    SFB = greatest bowler
    W.G = bradman = greatest batsman/player
    headley = best after w.g and don
    hobbs at 42-48 = ATG (27tests avg-58 , 8 tons )

    I'm sure there's an interesting point or three in there, albeit I suspect they're ones that have already been done to death at least a dozen times here, but I'd certainly appreciate an explanation

    I have no idea what you're even talking about. The first paragraph doesn't make any sense to me.

    Plenty of Grace's contemporaries could be considered as his equal or his better as a batsman. Can you name some of Bradman's contemporaries that could be considered his equal, or his better?

    I don't speak or read Spanish at all. But I put what you wrote in to Google translate, and changed it to Spanish. Here is the outcome...

    aumentar la competitividad del 5%
    diferencia en las diferencias (jugadores btwn) wil b redujo en un 50%
    eso es lo que funciona

    de otra manera

    dhyanchandh = mayor campo de hockey jugador / deportista más dominante (junto wth don y wg)
    SFB = mayor jugador de bolos
    W.G = Bradman = mayor bateador / reproductor
    headley = mejor después w.g y don
    hobbs en 42-48 = ATG (27tests promedio-58, 8 toneladas)
    It still makes the same amount of sense to me as it did in English.

    I think, he's trying to argue that the difference in standards back then would be much smaller now, because they weren't as competitive back then.

    Really? Such as who?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?
