The downside of DC winning this is he's so late in his career age-wise and on the verge of major knee surgery. If he wins he'll immediately be out for 12-18 months getting his knee rehabbed. That'll put him in the 38-39 range by the time he gets back.
A DC win is bad for the sport.
...without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. - Heb 9:22
