No, silly is the concept that elite means the top guy and that's it. By your very definition a guy is only elite not only if he's the best guy out there, but he must also be the best guy to ever have played...because to be "elite" means that you can't get any better, and if there's ever been someone better then obviously he could get better so by definition he's not elite. Listen, to each their own on what they consider "elite". I'm just saying that a standard which is defined as saying only the best player to ever have played the position can be considered elite...is too extreme. That's my personal opinion.
