See post #4 of this thread. For some reason, a lot of people like to abuse advanced statistics and then talk down on people who disagree with them. If you use the available statistics correctly (by soberly assessing what they can and can't do), then they can really help you understand
aspects of the game.
But yes, I agree that people who find a single formula and use it as some kind of holy grail that explains everything don't really know what they are talking about.
