Hypocritical post of the day? Somehow, playing 30 years ago is perfectly acceptable in any sports debate, but 40-50 years is absurd.

If you want to rank players by era, that is fine, but to arbitrarily cut-off the point at which a player can be considered is mind-numbing.

What was that magic year wherein everything changed? Specifically. Just so I know for any future discussion.

Everybody knows Barry was 5x the athlete anybody in Jim Brown's era was. Plain and simple, you give Barry 20 carries how many times would he even have been tackled? No more than 10. Jim Brown's level of competition was inferior by miles so if you can't understand that than don't bother replying. When you judge players you have to rank them on how they did against their peers and Barry put up betters numbers in an era which its competition was clearly superior.

Barry couldn't run on grass...read the article I posted

and Jim was 5x the athlete Barry was...infact, Football wasn't even his best sport, he is a hall of fame lacrosse player, arguebly the greatest ever....They had to create new rules in lacrosse because of Brown.

he averaged 38 points per game in college basketball

he was a track star


Barry has nothing on Brown in terms of being a pure athlete, and there is absolutly no question Brown would dominate today's game as well just like WIlt would in today's NBA, he is just that kind of freak athlete.

You didn't answer my question...

Since Sweetness is deemed completely worthy of discussion in an all-time context and he started his career in 1975, what was the magic cut-off year that separates those who matter from those who don't?

There is exactly 10 years separating when Walter Payton played in the NFL and when Jim Brown played in the NFL. So, which of those 10 years was the one that made all the difference. I want a specific season. Thanks.
