I guess I feel like it's more of a point worthy of debate, not a statement that I don't think he deserves it. He's certainly in the very cream of the crop with the longevity and titles and dominance. If DeCoster were to knight him (maybe he has) I would concede.
But he's still no Tony D or Weinert.
