I agree. It seems as though, judging from the last two months, Djok and Ralph have paid a heavy price for their '11 battles. As I posted at least once, it reminds me of the heavyweight boxing scenario of the 70's. Ali/Frazier 1thru3 created an opening for Foreman to become kingpin, only to be undone by a rejuvenated, craftier Ali in the Rumble in the Jungle. Ali came back strong, Frazier disappeared and Foreman was crushed for a long while. Can Fed reprise Ali's role for a return to the top spot? We'll see in '12!
