    Sentence structure question

    A friend and I have a disagreement about a sentence used between us. Without regard to content, but based solely on structure, are there any errors with the follow sentence:

    "Seeing as I said that I disagreed, and then stated that I believed that you didn't need GCW buffs, raw logic and reasoning and use of the English language sentence structure would imply that I was saying that I believed that you didn't need GCW buffs to be effective."

    Basing my response entirely on construction, it looks all right to me.

    Thank you for taking the time to respond to this question. I understand that my request may have been intrusive to the function of these forums. You have settled the disagreement, and for that, I thank you.

    If patience and tolerence will allow, I'd like to ask one follow-up question.

    Was the emphisis on "entirely" placed there due to the nature of my orginal question, citing structure over content, or rather to call attention that there may be errors other then structure?

    Alow me to assure all who may read this post, that I will not bother this community with our disagreement further. My friend simply stated that the sentence in question is 100% correct. I didn't think it was possible for a 49 word, single sentence to even exist.

    BTW, I was wrong.
