I should have stated that I don't think there is necessarily anything special about any given era. Great records by a few top men might mask a lack of depth. A great champion at his peak might ruin outstanding contenders and create an impression of weakness. I try to avoid talk of a 'golden age' or a 'weak era'. Neither is usually really the case.
