Yes, yes, and no. From my experience its pretty easy to tell who has practical experience vs who doesn't. I grew up playing, coached while I could afford to live on the pitiful wages, then moved on. Most of my friends are ex-players and/or coaches and the one thing they ALL agree on is the tape don't lie. Even with the tape you only have half the info bc you need the play call to go along with it, but for outsiders film is about as close as it gets. As far as your opinion of my opinion, I'm good either way. But let's not pretend like I'm the only one who's told you some variance of please put down the stat sheet and enter reality.
