Dear god man...
I agree with alot of what you have to say, but the fact of the matter is that you didn't address what he had to say. You responded with something irrelevant to his direct argument. I don't care about any of the other points that you have made because they have no relation to what was being argued in the first place.
You can't change what is being argued and then claim to be right.
There is no point in arguing against someone who doesn't understand how to argue.
Lol, everything I have said has pointed to one conclusion; that Garrison instead of Salo will significantly improve the hockey club. I merely skipped over the part where you say one thing, I say you're/he's wrong, they say no you're wrong provide your arguments as to why.
Rather than argue over bull I substantiated the argument and expanded the discussion. I was not aware that this was a straight up debate on whether Salo is better than Garrison in the roster next season, if that's the case none of us have any business saying yes/no. It's not a cut and dry black and white situation.
Yes, I added above and beyond what the "original argument" was, not doing so leads to boring conversation so instead it was you who dragged the topic through the mud and disregarded the simple premise of what I was doing; educating you that it's not as simple as someone makes it out to be. "Having Garrison in the roster over Salo is not a significant improvement" (paraphrased). That's his opinion, it wasn't a point proven in fact that merited a debate with the onus on me proving it to be false.
So if your point was that DeNiro was commenting under the guise of a debate, that wasn't clear. To me it looked like an opinion, to which I provided my own and expanded upon the "argument".
I mean really, that's what were here for is discussion but it's this kind of lowbrow crap that descends into rhetoric and name calling that gives this forum the joke of a reputation that it has.
Is this how I was supposed to respond?
DeNiro: "I don't see Garrison as being a significant improvement over Salo next season"
ShadowGoon: "You're wrong, he's way better than Salo".
