I don't have a horse in this race but have close knowledge of both.
It's really close and depends on the team. In '06, I think the top 2 or 3 E9 teams might be a goal better than the top Black teams. It might be the difference of one or two players. The top Black teams are likely better than at least half of the E9 teams.
