I wouldn't be surprised if some of his fans would try to claim a deal with Lint is greater evidence of an impressive career than a gold medal.

The question could easily be "what's better, a rainbow or a unicorn?"
I didn't miss the point. In this analogy there is nothing.

Besides, where did you see me disrespecting someone's achievements?

The fact, that someone thinks, that OG is a big deal doesn't bother me one bit. I just do not think, that it is something, that can be compared to Majors, and, since on the line in that comparison is precisely a Major, it is a no brainer, where my preference will go.
