Despite your explanation I think your argument here is grasping at straws. CRF was comparing players in the here and now with production versus contract. You raise valid points above with the differences but they are all paid under same salary cap rules and in the same season versus pretty much the same teams. To make your point you decided to compare two players 3rd year production both of whom played 13 years apart with 3 years difference in age. It is just my opinion but your example is hardly the same thing.
