Sports Media Gripe of the Week

The National Football League and those who cover it have conspired to make news by releasing a list of the top 100 players in the league.  Since there is no real way to measure the value of a particular wide receiver versus a linebacker versus a right guard, this just provides heaps of fodder for endless and meaningless debates.  It is hard enough comparing two quarterbacks since they belong to different systems with different personnel.  Sure, there are stats out there that can help, although one should beware of stats in team sports.

This might all be a fun diversion from the NFL lockout, but I will not fall for it.  I choose not to read any of the posts online about the magic list of 100.  That should reduce my online time waste-age by 3.47%.
