To me, picking points in a player's career to paint him in better light than his entire career does smacks more of stats-mongering than anything else.
It's not stats-mongering to my way of thinking to say he was an AT great bowler prior to an injury and merely a very good one thereafter. I'd say to solely judge a player's merit on their overall average devoid of context is closer to what I'd understand by the term.

"as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

i think Brumby is talking about Waqar's major back injury in 1994. Waqar was pretty good from 1994-98
