Most people have no concept of what p4p was intended to mean. If dana or rogan say someone is p4p elite, that's enough for them.
But think of it this way...two fighters of equal skill face off. One is bigger than the other...isn't the bigger one supposed
to win? If he does, does it "prove" that he's more skilled, or that he's bigger?
Would it be a considerably larger accomplishment for the smaller fighter to defeat the larger opponent?
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
