I rarely stretch preworkout as I feel that rotational exercises loosen me up much better. I do some static stretching post workout as I like to maintain the flexibility that I do have and I enjoy the range of motion that comes with it.
You are right in line with most pro personal trainers including Pavel Tsatsouline.
Most educated AND experienced kinesiologists would say the same as you did.
Basic limbering pre-workout and some basic ROM post-workout is all you need. Too much flexibility actually makes you weaker and is counterproductive to strength training.
