Yes, on some of the reading I've done, I haven't noticed some abundance of writings on how ****py a champion he was. I'm sure there were negative press, but you're saying that was the norm, which is where I disagreement is. So, if you want to produce the overall consensus on him being viewed as a **** champion.. I would change my mind.
