Hood, do you think krosero's arguments above is so expert that they trump Barrett's, Hellberg's and a whole slew of great sportwriters, as regards to 1976?

I certainly don't.
Sorry, your knowledge of these other experts is more encyclopaedic than mine. (Salut to Meister Hellberg.) I do find Krosero's points rather credible. But perhaps I should go back to my double listing strategy.

Lots of fine opinions and difficult sifting going on.
The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are aggressively certain, while the intelligent are full of doubt.
