JB12 youve been one of the most consistent guys ive seen in this game and I will agree the players are better but so is everything else if you look at the overall picture. Not only is the equipment better but as stated above the steroid usage is greater as well. You could definitely make the argument that steroid usage changes the players and the game immensely which causes that huge gap of separation when it comes to players/talent level. While I am not anti usage, I also wont act like it doesnt affect the game especially on the offensive side.
When it comes to the ball for me its all about ego. Everyone wants that hard ball because its an ego stroke even when you miss a ball 350ft. Every year we read, see or play with pillow balls at some point and every time the players are exposed they complain its the balls fault when in reality guys arent nearly as good as the hard ball makes them look! You take away power numbers and there would be a whole bunch of guys playing on those local teams getting boat raced on friday nights!
How do they say it on social media? CINCY YOURE ON THE CLOCK
