Yes and you're welcome.. Yes, there have been numerous threads & discussions dedicated to the argument you're trying to present. Heck, we might even re-start this whole debate pretty soon, again... Here are the 2 sides of the debate: - LD had already proven that he could maintain as WR #1, in the last couple or so yrs. I know he should participate in more tourneys like what LCW is doing. But i think LD's goal or main focus right now is to maintain his physical condition and to just select tournaments he deems worthwhile to participate in til 2012 Olympics. - LCW can have and brag abt his WR #1, but to many, without him having a major title(s) securely placed in his back pocket, the WR will be for naught. ..i meant to say, "And neither LD or LCW will come in 2nd place in this yr's WC (one will be eliminated in the Semis should they meet each other)".. For the 1st part & 2nd parts, i understand. But the query was abt for this particular WC's total pts. If you want to divulge more abt pts accumulation til end of the yr, please open up a new thread for a new discussion. Thanks.
