The man the Third was planning on making the Forth Hokage (Until he found out about the freaky things he was up to). Yes; Sasuke is pretty darn strong but a Man who's lifes goal was to live forever and know all Jutsus taught him way more than we will ever know. So when the Sasuke lovers praise him please put some praise torwards Orochimaro; because you know all the Naruto lovers put plenty of praise Jiraiya's way.
You do raise an excellent point that Naruto fans are quick to herald Jiraiya, Kakashi, the Grampa frog and even the 4th. That was the point of my counter argument there that just because we're not shown the training with Sasuke and Oro does not mean it was not implied.
