You are nothing but one of many critics, just like all of us. You gave your opinion. You called Parsons 'nothing but snake oil.' You own it. The Sgt Pepper critic gave his opinion immediately after it debuted. History proved him to be an absolute moron. History may prove you right. History may prove you to be wrong. You suck at being a critic. Just honest, constructive criticism. You act like Mr. Big Chest and go bold with an opinion (cool, I like that) and then slither away and backtrack, and caveat, and pretend you said something else. Not cool. You call a player 'snake oil' and then when confronted and made to look like an idiot, you backtrack and say the player might be a solid player but nowhere near that one-game highlight. Not cool. You called the Parsons snake oil and now are upset people may hold you accountable to your potentially ridiculous opinion. Perhaps you don't know the meaning of snake oil. snake oil [ˈsnāk ˌoil] NOUN informal NORTH AMERICAN a substance with no real medicinal value sold as a remedy for all diseases. a product, policy, etc. of little real worth or value that is promoted as the solution to a problem.
