I'm not confusing things, we just have different priorities. You could say I view things through more of an "impact" view. For me, I don't really care about technique for aesthetics reason. So when I say "technical application" I just mean at his peak, Ronaldo was able to use his technique to achieve productivity more consistently than Henry. I should know, I watched close to 100% of Henry's game at his peak (my name is a hint as to why ). Fair enough, I've seen less of Ronaldo's games at his peak (roughly only about 60-70% of the games, due to La Liga's horrible scheduling) but in the time I did see him, he was able to produce more with his technique than Henry could, imo.
