Likewise, the stats guys need to be honest and forthright in laying out what those assumptions are. I've met very few who are willing to do so, because they generally don't want to give anyone an opprtunity to dismiss their work.
This is not true. They probably just don't want to talk to you anymore and they assume that you wouldn't understand their assumptions anyways, even if they explained them to you.

You’d see so-and-so is 4-for-6 against so-and-so.
I like how your response is definitive, yet the basis is a "probably" that is completely uninformed. Like I said, the applicability relies on assumptions, and your assumptions make your comment entirely useless.
It was mildly entertaining, so there's that.
And I rarely have to ask of the guys who are RSB alum. "Show your work" being an almost constant refrain there.
