I assume you mean "neither the head or the tail".

No, I am pretty sure that isn't what he means. He means that a head result or a tail result are only 2 out of many, many other results. Taking that space of possible results and using the wrong method of calculating the odds produces a result saying a head (or a tail) is going to be very unlikely.
