Where does all this talk about the 7-14 being sharper come from?

dpreview has reviewed both lenses and there is a nice comparameter.

At 9 mm the 7-14 is sharper overall.

Between 10 - 14 mm the 7-14 is sharper in the corners and the extreme center

while the 9-18 is sharper everywhere else.

I would call that almost break-even.

CA is definitely worse with the 9-18 though.
