Re: The 2011 MOTYC Thread
I could absolutely say someone was wrong if they said something that was bad was good.
talent and quality are in the eye of the beholder, but that doesn't mean they're entirely subjective. I can't say I'm a better guitar player than Jimi Hendrix, and then say "well it's just my opinion, you can't say I'm wrong". That's ridiculous. I can't say that the movie I made in my backyard of my friends hitting each other with foam swords is better than Citizen Kane, and then when someone suggests I might be exaggerating, respond with "well, that's just your opinion."
Subjective opinions can be wrong, if not factually then conventionally. And even if you want to hide behind the "well it's just my opinion" defense, which I guess you're entitled to do, then I'm entirely entitled to judge you as having shitty taste, and to tell you that that's how I'm judging you because you apparently like your wrestling choreographed specifically for people with short-term memory problems.
Richards vs. Edwards did nothing to reward anyone who put any thought into it and only slightly more to get people to actually remember what took place, and therefore it was a bad wrestling match. You can say that's just my opinion, but what purpose does that serve? Think about things and try and understand them better, rather than just saying you like them.
This is the other wrestling section. It's still fake to us.
