Fair enough, maybe I'm not always crystal clear. But this time Mm post clearly mentioned that those who watched him play *and* those who scan the stats sheets would both come to the same conclusion regarding Methot. Yet you went back to the old (and untrue) chestnut of "Walter doesn't watch any games except on paper".
I watch games. I have a busy family life so I maybe don't watch as much as some, but probably more than most. I also like digging deeper so I look at stats. But I use stats to back up my opinions, which are normally not drawn from stats in the first place. According to those Briggs-Meyers tests I am an intuitive thinker and have actually had to train myself to do deeper analysis (I still arrive at the same conclusion most of the time, but I can now back it up to my boss and not be accused of jumping at conclusions). So, perhaps, my affinity for stats simply comes from this.
Just because someone looks at stats does not mean he doesn't watch games, and it certainly does not mean that he forms his opinions based on simply numbers. I watch, I root, I complain about referees, I yell "Shoot!" at the screen when they've passed it back-and-forth 8 times on the powerplay. I form my opinions based on watching, if I can, then I try to back my arguments up with supporting stats because that's what is usually asked for -- in real life. But in this fantasy sports life it's somehow wrong, whereas the NEELY type says "fact is" and you all drop your panties.
