And, whether you're convinced or not is irrelevant. You asked me a question, I answered. If you don't like the answer, I can't help ya. Good luck with this topic, by the way. I have a feeling that this is a pretty loaded topic.
Would you tell us, instead, what you want us to conclude via your questioning of this subject? I may agree with you or not, but if you just go ahead and put the idea out there, people can actually choose to agree or disagree and you won't be viewed as trying to be a bit of a troll.
If you want a debate on the subject of "what is the definition of a player" I'm sure we could take it at an impersonal route and actually have a full on debate on the matter. Hell, it may help people widen their perspectives on what a player really is, or can be understood to be. Far more constructive as a topic.
