What the Stats don't measure
In GAA, there are stats for everything nowadays.Tackle Count, Touches, Support Runs Made, Passes Completed....Etc
While it definitely focuses players minds on important issues, it possibly deflects from a very important metric.
Who stood up when it was really needed, at critical moments in games.
Great players have that ability, to look for and seize those critical moments. Its not easy to do, simply because those critical moments carry way more risk and chance of direct blame for defeat.
The good players will be the top of the stats, the great players will stand up when it is needed most.
The Legends will be both.
