Who would you people say is the most overrated in any sport?
I would say
soccer: David Beckham
Basketball: Allen Huston or Vince Carter
Football: Eli Manning, Ricky Williams
Hockey: Ed Belfor, Danny Healtley
Baseball: Barry Bonds, Curt Shilling, David Wells, Jason Gaimbi, David Ortiz (he's a DH how hard is that!!)
Over all: Tiger Woods, (Roger Feder (spelling), Andy Roddick (it's F'ing tennis)
As for underrated
Soccer: Therry Henry, Wayne Rooney, Carlos Ranaldo (Man U), Del Piero (Italy)
Basketball: Kevin Garnett, Jalen Rose, Richard Hamilton and Tim Duncan
Football: Carnell (Cadilic) Williams, Antanio Gates, Tolimson (spelling)
Hockey: Kris Draper, Simon Gagne, Steve Yzerman, Andrew Cassels
Baseball: Orlando Hudson, Roy Haliday, Dontrelle Willis
As for the most underrated player it's: Ichro Suzki (1,000+ hits in 4 seasons
) the guy is awsome plus he plays for a not so great team
A few pennies for a few names...
-How is V. Carter overrated? He is only really known for slamming down massive dunks...not much else. Thats why he has stayed in Toronto for so long. But I havent followed the off-season, so if he got traded...I missed it.
-Eli I am not too sure about. He did pull the cry-baby shit on draft day, and demand a trade...now look at San Diego. Think he knows he fucked up? He is only overrated because he went to a falling team instead of joining a rising team.
-I am a big Texas fan, and will say that Ricky was a big disappointment in the NFL. Thats all.
-Bonds, Schilling, Wells, Giambi, Ortiz. I like how you took 5 of the biggest names and downtalked them all. >Bonds is far from overrated, if anything he is just talked about too much. Steroids this, and steroids that...HAS HE EVER FAILED??? >Schilling and Wells are not overrated. Schilling is just off to a scratchy start, Wells just had a few bad games. How is being a normal MLB pitcher overrated? That is like me saying that Randy Johnson, Bartolo Cologn, John Smoltz, Dontrelle Willis, and every single teams star pitchers are overrated. They are labeled the TEAM star pitchers because they are the best on THAT TEAM. >Giambi isnt overrated either. Look what he did since being caught with roids. Rocky start...hmm just like Schilling...but since has posted pre-steroids numbers and became the Giambi of old. How is that overrated? >ORTIZ??? He is definately the saviour of the Boston Red Sox. No overrated status should even be thought of for this DH. Granted he is a DH...but why label him when he is leading the league in several categories? And on the DH part, he is the normal 1B, Olerud is not the lead guy if they play a NL park.
-Tiger is probably the best ever...but this year he is overrated. Vijay has outplayed him this year and deserves to still be #1.
My most overrated is Derek Jeter...Jeter is the posterboy on how to be a ballhog.
-KG and Duncan are not underrated. Both are the respected leaders of their team, Duncan is considered better all around than Shaq, and KG is a former MVP. How is that underrated?
-Cadillac Williams is just a rookie, and doesnt deserve to even be rated yet...and LeDanian Tomlinson I could agree on.
-Roy Haliday, and D-Train, these guys are probably two of the most dominant pitchers in the game. Not THE, just two of. Thats all Im gonna say about that.
-Most underrated player is not Ichiro Suzuki, he gets the credit he deserves. He is a lead off hitter with lead off statistics. Except on base%...thats what hurts him.
-Most underrated is Trent Dilfer. Look what he has done to the Browns. I never really like Dilfer, but he did win a Super Bowl with the Ravens as a starter, and now he is leading the Browns, so far, to an outstanding season. I know the Ravens' defense was a HUGE factor that season, still is. But they had to get points some how.
