Thougths on Interpretative Viewing
Statistics: active participation or keen observation of the game furthers the understanding of the irrelevance and marginal significance of numbers. They are raw and innately objective but by no measure of imagination representative of an even environment. They derive their value from true actions -- acts that deserve attention and examination.
True actions: moments and instances -- tangible expressions -- that generate source(s) (complete) of observations and interpretations. Beyond “collectives” – (dribbles, shots, passes), these are single isolated incidents that comprise the greater attribute or event: hardly definable but clearly evidential. True actions are perpetual, virtual considerations of our senses (nearly subconsciously). A true action involves body positioning, mental decisiveness, circumstance appreciation, physical movement and real-time awareness in one solidly combined situation at a particularly (cosmically; within an experience context) specific individual point in History.
Events: basis of argument for current intelligence and inspirations for contemporary emotions. Events are compilations of progressive true actions; a sequential consolidation of activities/tasks. Timing and work (planning and execution) comprise the essential characteristics of events. Technology facilitates the cultivation and analysis (or rather deeper/prolonged observation) of performance [actionable factors] elements. There is a clear disregard for attitude/personality (and its presentation) that must be established – it is an undeniable contribution to merit but not excellence or due(s).
Side note: an event remains its definition regardless of achieved goal/success. A goal and a shot are equally classified as events.
Refined (Pointed) Statistical Achievements
Messi: first player to score five goals in a Champions League match appearance.
Ronaldo: first player to complete a Champions League match appearance with perfect passing accuracy.
Closing RemarksIt is impratical to categorize all these events (Ronaldo's passes and Messi's goals) in uniform evelopment. It is imperative to distinguish these events and mark the unique input(s) and output(s) which could only be optimally comprehended through visual study.
You cannot win a war that cannot be fought. But you can lose a battle you never entered. Player comparisons is financing for fanatic souls. An eternal debate.
