The only Era-related comment needed for me is number of teams. 6-12 vs 24+ teams is a huge difference. Basically anything pre 20 teams doesn't really do it for me. Obviously skill has gone up over time, making it harder to be the best as the gap narrows, but the lack of teams in the old times means that you could basically just out coin-flip others to be the most winning.
Golf is supposed to be fun and relaxing, but it has been very stressful for me to secure tee times. So my husband decided to join another club so I don’t stress him out too by complaining every day!
Do you prefer to play alone or do you mean a regulation course wouldn’t even fit you in with a 3some to play?
Yea, in theory. Athletes should continue to get better, the game keeps evolving, etc. That’s why we have the whole discussion of 15 > 19, and at some point in the future 12 might be greater than 15.
I have. I’d make that argument, too, but don’t have the time to get into the advanced analytics stuff to make the case.
For a defenseman, not even close. I hate how the Norris trophy generally defaults to the defenseman that scored the most points these days. The position is about a lot more than scoring points, which can be inflated from playing on the power play where a defenseman doesn’t necessarily have to play much defense.
