*Sam, your most recent comment on Bloodgood is as follows:

*"Bloodgood's weakness as a player is obvious"

*"Claude Bloodgood...through hard work and diligent study

There is nothing inherently wrong with changing an opinion, Sam. *We
come across new facts, or new perspectives, so we change our minds.
The change evinced by your differing rhetoric seemed so remarkable
that I was wondering what was going on. *I was hoping to learn
something by asking this question.

This is no mystery Chris, Sam is of two minds and they are in the

ignoring each other, which leaves Sam out of his mind (hehwehehehe).
