Just keep trying, little one. You didn't point out any sort of "mistake" or "contradiction" simply because there wasn't one. I said in my post (it's still there, if you want to read it -- it may take me a bit of time to find the number) that I didn't know why I was bringing it up because it had nothing to do with Dempsey -- and then I corrected myself by admitting that I simply liked the mental image of seeing 1000 Carneras punching it out with one Ali. It's all there, and the post hasn't been rewritten or anything.
In any case, the remark was a beautiful illustration of what a keen logical machine the old Shoemaker's mind really is: Carnera didn't have 1/1000th of Ali's ability. Maybe I'm going out on a limb here, but I think 1000 Dakota Fannings would be able to kick the shit out of Ali if they attacked him en masse, not to mention what 1000 Carneras would do to the poor guy.
Keep trying, though. Just like slow cooked spaghetti: if you throw enough of it against a wall, eventually some of it will stick. You'll make a salient point yet, I'll betcha.
Unless Mike finds out where you live first, of course -- in which case I'll be sure to send flowers to your hospital room. PeteLeo.
