0.38 ppg works out to 31 points per 82 game season.
0.50 ppg works out to 41 points per 82 game season.
Not sure why he didn't just stick to his ppg over their careers
Less confusing no?
And he did it without explanation.
And then he switched to ppg per 82 games
... when he should have said "points
per 82 games".
(he was attempting to clarify but failed miserably)
(I just now figured out that "points
per 82 games"... is what he must have meant)
But none of this explains the original mix up.
Here's where it started...
I laughed at him for saying "Backlund blew away
Sutter in ppg over his career
He responded with "Lol you can’t see 50
points a season is better than 33
That made ZERO sense... considering he was talking about ppg over their careers
understand what he meant by the numbers 50
at that point in time??)
So I assumed he was referring to Backlund/Sutter's career ppg numbers of .50 and .38
... and that he got the last number wrong (hence my correction).
NEAR THE END Blob threw in something about "over a recent three year sample size".
But that was too little too late... the damage to the conversation was already done.
He should have said "over a recent three year sample size" from the start
... if that's what he meant.
He didn't... but he did say ppg over their careers
repeatedly during the convo.
Blob is capable of communicating better than this...
