Don't try to twist the discussion.
It's not an asinine opinion or unreasonable comment by Hawk, and he doesn't need to be crucified over it. This year, their numbers are close enough that it is not unreasonable that you could lean towards Alexei due to the intangibles regarding the Cubans.
Who cares what year. I will take Tulo last year, this year, next year any year.
