I think that's a vast oversimplification -- he just watches games differently than a scout would.
Think of it like a traffic accident that a lot of people witness. I'd expect an engineer or a scientist who was an eyewitness to give a very different account of the accident than a teacher or an author. Neither account would be "more correct" -- they'd just be different because people see things differently and are paying attention to different things.
