Do you claim I believe everything I see and hear on TV and on the web?

I say it's not a fact that Djokovic must win at least 10 slams to be in the GOAT discussion.

Most posters here are Federer fans so I do not give a damn what they say about me.

You made an allegation of fact and doing so you put the burden of proof on yourself.

Sampras's career is over, while Djokovic's career is far from over. Djokovic is rapidly suprassing Sampras's achievements, yesterday Novak won his 12th Masters (Sampras won 11).

When Federer had 9 slams, many experts at that time said he is greater player than Sampras. GOAT discussion is not just about numbers.

The GOAT discussion is matter of opinion because, for example, it includes debate about level of competition which can not be proven true or false.

When debating any issue, there is an implicit burden of proof on the person making an allegation of fact. Andy1402 made an allegation of fact but failed to provide proof.

So, I have got proof that according to the standard view statement "Djokovic must win at least 10 slams to be in the GOAT discussion" is not a fact but an opinion.
