Where's the reading comprehension and general reasoning?
You "think" that I "tried" to prove your point without saying anything more, but the fact is that I responded cleanly to both of Perry's points.
He doubted that the people I listed supported "glass court jai-alai", and I showed that, IN FACT, they did.
He insinuated that I was labeling all the Magic City bashers as Brand X complainers, and I took a minute to explain that I had actually conveyed the idea of "most".
Perry's opinion is that secretly these people despise everything about this form of jai-alai and that they sold out their principles for a few bucks.
My opinion is that part of what made players like Arra, Benny, and Joey so great is a thing called PRIDE. My reasoning is that if they truly shared the vehement revulsion of the complainers, they would be extremely unlikely to lend support to it.
My opinion is that maybe these guys are smarter than the bashers, and recognize that with top level jai-alai barely hanging on in the ICU, maybe an infusion of new ideas and forms could have a positive effect. Maybe they have the brains to see that OBJECTIVELY, Magic City is not hurting Dania, Mexico City, or the Basque country one iota.
Maybe a hundred thriving "minor league" operations around the country would be strongly positive in the sense that Dania would be seen as the king of them all, the real deal, and benefit from the increased prominence of "jai-alai".
Anyway, you guys are hopeless, so say what you like, I'm done on this topic.
