Whoever said experts opinions aren't valuable? Not me. You infer that these people know 10 times more than me. Well sorry, they don't know 10 times more than me. And no I don't give a fuck about some of the things they think.Experts getting things wrong isn't an opinion--it's fact.
It's also fact that experts' opinions are valuable--they have knowledge, experience and access that others do not. I'm not saying they're always right, or we should defer to them--but we shouldn't also be immediately dismissive, or even worse--reactionary.
Although, I guess your "I dont give a fuck about who knows what about this or that" explains a lot...
I made a 45 year sales career based strictly on numbers that were posted. You sell you make money. You didn't make money because some assclown said a guy would be good at sales. In sales. opinions don't matter..not even a little bit. I base performance of athletes purely on numbers...not the opinion of so called experts.
