Can you elaborate? This seems like a brutally unfair generalization, and at any rate, it's the opposite of what I see. Those "nerds" seem to provide more context than any of the normies. The entire basis of stats like Corsi Rel, Fenwick Close, etc. are that the traditional stats are reductive and misleading because they ignore exactly what you're complaining the fancy stats ignore.
