It's an operator precedence issue.

This may be illustrative:

>>> if 'a' == 'b' or 1:
...     print 'NI!'
... 
NI!

You should change the if to be something like:

if goodstats == 'yes' or goodstats == 'y':

If you don't want to be that wordy, you could do this instead:

if goodstats in ('yes', 'y'):

Good luck, and have fun.
