Actually, he said that if the only thing you do is go look up the stats, you shouldn't be voting. You need to take into account many other factors that the numbers don't reveal. He said that if putting up the right stats was all that was needed, then there would be no need to vote. You could just develop a computer formula, plug in the numbers, and it would tell you who deserves to be in.
When you put it that way I somewhat agree, however stats should and do play a huge part to determine who is worthy and who is not.
