I am debating the above statement because I think in fact, Larry is better than Hines. My first argument:
he can catch better catches

I will post more when my opponent posts his argument. Thank you everyone

Thank you for starting this debate.

I have two contentions:

1. "Better" is purely subjective.
Better - improved in accuracy or performance (http://www.merriam-webster.com...)
Measuring accuracy and performance is difficult. There are many different ways to measure them. No one accuracy test is better than another. The word "better" requires an opinion. Opinions cannot be used as substantial proof.

2. Hines Ward is better than Larry Fitzgerald, in my opinion.
Larry Fitzgerald won a Super Bowl MVP. As of this season, he has 800 receptions, 9,780 receiving yards, and 72 touchdowns. You only claim that Larry Fitzgerald makes better catches. You have nothing to back this up. I have a Wikipedia article:

Thank you.

"Larry Fitzgerald won a Super Bowl MVP. As of this season, he has 800 receptions, 9,780 receiving yards, and 72 touchdowns. You only claim that Larry Fitzgerald makes better catches."

you have just proved my point by saying Larry has done all of those things since this season.

Thank you for accepting this debate. Sorry it couldnt be a full debate. Thanks.

Okay, that was a typo. Sorry. I mentioned it in Comments. My link also went to Hines Ward's page. Those were Hines Ward's credentials, not Larry Fitzgerald's.

At this point, you haven't actually said anything except that Larry can catch better catches, but you haven't backed it up with ANYTHING. Additionally, you have no stats for Larry, while I have states for Hines.

In conclusion, Hines has a Super Bowl MVP. Larry, apparently, might be able to make better catches. Hines Ward is better than Larry Fitzgerald; vote CON.
