I'm sure they are looking for it, I think they just understand the nature of the sport and the expense of keeping stats (wages, expenses at events). Scouting a team you look for things that work and things that might not work. Lets say Team X plays Team Y and your scouting Team X. 4 out of the 6 points Team X shoots out a snake runner. Stats like that can help a team adjust their breakouts vs a certain team (something Im sure many coaches are doing). With individual stats, you can pinpoint what a team may do on the field. For example, lets say one back player (Dave Baines for example) has a 75% OTB shootout percentage on the snake side. A coach/team can adjust to this by doing more conservative snake side break outs, or sling shot a laner OTB. Statistics can be extremely useful for competitive paintball teams and their coaches in adjusting game plans. Im sure many top coaches use stats in their scouting reports, whether they know it or not.
