I've seen both play and I think you're, at the very least, splitting hairs. And, yes, stats matter. While they're not everything, they matter. Numbers can lie, but in this case, the numbers don't even compare which could be why you're not too fond of them.
But, go ahead. Call my logic retarded, if that makes you feel better. Have fun arguing with yourself.
Lets start over. Hi, my name is Dave.
1) reread my posts. I said stats aren't everything.
2) I never said researching a player using game footage was a bad thing or that gms dont do that.
You really are arguing with yourself. Have fun with that.
So let's bring up all your gems you posted in this thread:
"Compare stats, or whatever else you want, and Te'o is just better. "
"I dont think GM should evaluate players using video footage"
"Te'o Heisman candidate" (as if it means anything now a days and worth using in an argument against Luke vs Te'o)
was he in the running for the heisman? (Refering to luke as if it was a knock on him)
How drunk are you guys?
