I am with you though. Always makes me laugh when I see people throwing out stats from behindthenet and all that.
It can be just as bad when referring to the eye test because often, fans of the team are biased.
Of course advanced stats can be flawed too, there is no perfect stat out there. And I much prefer looking at the advanced stats than the basic eye test. The eye test had Flyers fans insulting my intelligence last year by telling me how great Grossman was great defensively because 'they watched most games'.
