    To all the critics out there.

    "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
    Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919), "Man in the Arena" Speech given April 23, 1910

    This would seem to dictate against the very existence of internet message boards dedicated to sports.

    You say that as if it's a flaw in the argument.

    I don't think that it necessarily dictates against the existence of message boards, but rather suggests that anonymous posters should consider that they may not know everything. I feel that there is nothing wrong with debate on these boards, but I also agree with Teddy that it takes much more to give a valiant effort than it takes to tear down the effort through words alone. In other words, we should recognize that when we dissect them on the boards, that they are still better than us
