So since the proliferation of belts would you say every one of your champions is there by virtue of 1v2?

I have no problem with your system by the way, I just don't think it is historically justifiable to rewrite history and dismiss certain championship claims.

Your way is ideal and it's unfortunate it isn't the way today but the reality is it isnt.

I loved your essay btw, I don't agree with it but I liked the cut of your jib.
