Hahaha! Yes you do. But, that's ok, you do a heroic job of standing your ground, especially considering that history is against you. Even when you stoop to calling me another Dan Lobb, I give you some slack because you have such a tough job.

I didn't say Laver should be ranked #1 through 1973. I said he should be ranked #1 through 1970, but that he was de facto the best player through 1973.
