Re(8): Most Talented Roster

Gee guys I think we have a couple of generations of Jai-Alai rosters which could be argued endlessly. The consensus seems to be Bridgeport 70's...but most of the star players that played there were past their prime as great as they were. When the same stars played in Miami before the 1968 strike they were considered the best ever deservedly. Then after the 1968 strike Miami regrouped and the likes of Juaristi, Asis, Javier, Marcoida, Enrique, Joey, Soroa, Zarria etc. Then there was Hartford 1976 with both the combined stars of Miami and Tampa on the same court. I played on that roster and when I was thrown into late games with the likes of Joey, Juaristi, Bolivar, Zulaica, Mendi, Echeva, Zabala, Uriarte (Cachin) I don't know how you can top that. I respected it all and personally I was in awe of the players that I was privileged to play against. Forgive me if I've left out your favorite super-star, but I was there to witness and play against them all regardless of arguements whether 60's, 70's, 80's or others produced the best rosters. I believe this is once again the endless dispute that I read on Tiger's site all the time. With all due respect to the fans of Miami, Dania, Bridgeport, Hartford...this is an endless dispute. I was there...from sneaking in to Miami to see Orbea I, Churruca, Chimela, Goyogana, Ondarres, Bengoa in their primes...to playing on 3 different rosters of Juaristi, Bolivar, Joey, Asis, Echeva, Mendi, Zabala, Zulaica, Javier, Soroa, Zarria and so many others.
