Nil Stats is just what it sounds like: sports talk without all the statistics.
When I wrote about the NBA, I avoided as many stats as possible. They’re just not my thing, and I enjoy the game quite well without paying attention to PERs, plus/minuses, and the like. That’s why ELIAS sports exists.
There are others out there like me, who just pay attention to the feel and view of a game, and whether or not the ball goes in the basket (or goal, or goal post, or wherever the scoring zone is located). We go for the optics, and the vibe–and not on who’s getting a triple-double. We like the psychological whys of team performance, and not the stat-driven ones (although if one team gets the ball in the basket more than the other team, well, that’s self-explanatory).
If you’re with me, welcome. If you like a healthy dose of statistics with your sports news, well…there are many other sites willing and able to accommodate you.
Regardless, thanks for stopping by.
