The whole point of conspiracy theories is that they can't be proved which is lousy in a debate where the point is to use PROOF to validate your argument. So you wasted a ton of time talking about something you couldn't argue with any validity. It's just a theory with no undeniable proof. Then your part that related back to the actual topic better was too short in comparison and lacked any persuasive reasoning outside of your opinion. So no more conspiracy theories as evidence ever again because it's not convincing or proof of anything and focus more on reasoning with actual evidence other than just stating your own opinion with nothing/little to back it up.
I think you missed the point that I was trying to make.
It doesn't matter if the conspiracy theories can be proved or not. I was never trying to argue with any validity that the conspiracy theories can be proven. Perception is reality and many people believe the conspiracy theories, regardless of whether or not they can be proven. I was connecting the leeway already allowed by refs to the other conspiracy theories. Why did this player get the call and that one didn't? That's how people think when they watch these games and it leads them to believe there is a conspiracy.
for more physicality in the league is to lessen the conspiracy talk. By taking away the ticky-tack touch fouls, you put the game back in the players hands. With the refs controlling less of the game, there will be less conspiracy talk. A more physical league accomplishes that goal. If you think about it, I was talking about conspiracies so there would be less talk about conspiracies lol
My point is valid but apparently I did not argue my point well enough. Thanks for the feedback.
