Do “Insiders” Have All the Answers?

Bill James was a baseball “outsider” when he self-published his first book on Major-League Baseball statistics.  Why would someone “outside” a field believe that anyone “inside” the field should listen to (or implement) his/her suggestions?

Do you think that people who are "insiders" are the only ones with enough knowledge to cause change in their field? Why, or why not?

Do you think that the "fresh eyes" and insights of outsiders could be more helpful—instead of less helpful—in identifying and solving problems? Explain your answer.
