True. But Barrena is a slug.
Iru and Solo are lazy slobs, but I won a bet on them last time I was there. That does not change my opinion of them. I did not walk out of the fronton saying, "Man, Iru kicks ass." I walked out saying, "Got lucky. He decided to move his lazy ass outside of his area between the 10 and 12 lines for once."
I don't bet much, but my opinion of the players does not change in relation to their suck factor. I realize that I have to bet on players I don't like in order to win sometimes.
