Yesterday, Matthew Freedman put together an awesome piece on Cordarrelle Patterson and argued in favor of including his rushing yards in computing his Dominator Rating. I’m glad he disagrees with the consensus RotoViz opinion. When there’s no internal dissent, a group of writers – or group of anythings – can quickly go down a bad path. In the most extreme examples, you end up at war in an unrelated country. There’s also something to be said for losing an argument, since the loser is the person who gains the most information from the exchange (and gaining information is almost always a positive).
