There is a great conflict that isn't always well mediated between silence and revelation, but this talk with Maddon is pretty convincing that the <stupid> corporate voices won, and lost. 

 I told him that. I said you just try to reduce the information you’re giving, try to be aware of who’s giving the information and really be aware of when it’s time to stay out of the way. In general the industry has gone too far in that direction and that’s part of the reason people aren’t into our game as much as they have been.

Rotoman's comment: His point, I think, is that the information beats the story every time. And it shouldn't.

Do stories destroy the metrics? Or are stories more important than the metrics? Or, most likely, both matter?

The future of sport relies on this conversation. See, trans athletes.
