I think that the skill level of a football team is a fact- it is either low or high. Therefore, if you compare the skill levels of two teams, then you know which is better.

However, there is a huge difference between Statistics, and opinions. Yes, statisically this team may do better then another, but someone may think another team is better because they have a certain player or two. In and of itself, when you use the word, better, you always look for an opinion.

I'm not sure I understand what you are saying. But if the other team were to have players that are better than those on the oopposing team, then they are obviously better. By the word better, I mean that one team is more effective than the other at getting a touchdown.

Ah, I see. I misunderstood your topic then.

I defined better as the fact that this one does better than another. Better can be used to define the premise of anything. My definition was basically on which one you preferred better and that it's hard to define if anything is better or not because so many people's opinion's are different. Just because this person scores more touchdowns, may make him better then a person. However, another person may have better strats.
