Hello fellow goon, tried watching basketball yet? I guess it's almost over as well.

I work as a basketball statistician, and I've heard the horrors of being a AFL statistician. It's not a job that people want to do. If being locked in a room with working hours from 3 hours before the game to 5 hours after for poo poo pay and a really poo poo stats program (as they tell me). A far larger problem with being a stats professional is laws make these high professional stats jobs count as volunteer work, even if it's basically a full time/casual (depending if they want you to do stats for the non top level games). I do state/wnbl and u20s down, And I'll tell you, doing u20s and under pay far more because laws treat that as paid volunteering.

I can't really tell you what goes in those "stat analysts" heads, But I can tell you they get paid a gently caress ton more for saying random bullshit that's just mainly pleasing to what the media wants to hear.
