I was just discussing this hamstring thing not too long ago. Do you guys remember? It's just a reflection of new information, etc. The hamstring issue in particular is sort of "big news" right now and if you notice many coaches are talking about it.
The common, knee jerk reaction 'stretch your hammies' for everything is simply no longer considered valid. I stopped stretching my hams religiously, btw, going on a good year now and, low and behold…it ain't made a difference. It has not affected my mobility and it is the mobility work itself that keeps that up not the static stretches.
This doesn't mean that there does not exist situation in which the hamstrings SHOULD be stretched it is just that you don't need to assume they need to be stretched because they 'feel' tight and/or as a part of dealing with APT..
Be happy that these guys do not just rest on their laurels. They learn new things and they pass it on..
Realize that many of the recommendations in Neanderthal No More have since been discontinuted. It's an old article. It's frustrating but you just have to try to keep up. I know it's even MORE frustrating when you have just read the articles and now find out that it's not all valid. But it's better than having the wrong info.
