^^ i fully understand that, but after following it for so long, like since i was 5, its just part of what i do. now, im not a giant stat geek, nor do i read much on it, but i follow it. i know whos who and who is good, who is winning and who is losing, catch highlights, check the standings... that kind of thing. and for that i enjoy it. the drama of players personal lives and contracts and so on i do not give a shit about.
