    Does it move someone down to #2, #3, #4? Irrelevant. It doesn't move them down any number of spots. It removes them from the competition altogether, because they're not meeting the same requirements. There is no standard of comparison.

    If you juice, it's a simple binary - not GOAT, and not in the discussion. If you're not in the discussion, there's no number that can or needs to be put on it.

    Where does George Forman rank in the all-time women's boxers list? What's that, he's not in that category? But does that mean he's 2nd, 3rd? No, it means he's not in the discussion

    Your reasoning is extremely faulty. How about examine your own post for errors before accusing others of faulty "logic".

    Your talking about a value judgement though so "logic" does not really stand out as a good argument.

    That’s hilarious

    Also TS point was pretty bad tbh, a better argument for jones & Anderson is that probably everyone at the top level is juicing and it’s just part of professional sports in general. He’ll most of Silva’s opponents actually popped themselves

    And please don’t argue with innocent until proven guilty... Lance Armstrong never officially popped, while admitting later to have used for the majority of his career

    Just because you say it is, it doesn't mean that it is so. Especially, when you are not even presenting a counter argument. You are just throwing shit at the wall and hoping that something sticks.

    Make a counter argument or don't waste your time.
