    Here's another thread I 'borrowed' from my other forum.:yes:

    In this game, you name 10 people, events, rock bands, toys, cars, or anything else you can think of that you think are vastly overrated. If you can't think of 10, or if you can't stop at 10, that's OK too.
    My starter list is this one:

    1) OJ Simpson---the man, the football player, the actor, the criminal
    2) Grunge rock
    3) Yuppies
    4) TV sitcoms
    5) Cadillacs
    6) Microbrews
    7) The East Coast---I don't get that whole New York culture thing
    8) Barbie
    9) High fashion
    10) Youth

    1) Michael Vick---the man, the football player, the dumb ***, the criminal
    2) Alternative---I hate when musicians become political!! I want car crashes, drug overdoses, violence, drunk and disorderly, unprotected sex, strippers, Satan and all those things that make Rock n' Roll Great!! :icon_twisted:
    3) White kids copying black trends---enough said
    4) Survivor---I watched two episodes and it was the most boring thing I've ever seen!!
    5) Hybrids---There's NOTHING cool about driving an egg!!:lol:
    6) Coors Light---All you taste is the can.
    7) Detroit and Pittsburgh---two ugliest cities I've ever visited
    8) New Star Wars---except Jar Jar Binks
    9) Hip huggers on women who shouldn't be wearing them.
    10) Hip Hop

    Michael Vick is not overrated.

    He's everything you said he is....but the average person agrees with this these days so he's not exactly overrated.

    People often struggle with "overrated" and "underrated"

    Anyways, here's my list

    1. Napolean Dynamite
    2. Will Farrell
    3. The Beatles
    4. Joe Torre
    5. NASCAR
    6. rap music
    7. stolen bases
    8. sacrafice bunts
    9. Wins/Losses (for a pitcher's stat sheet)
    10. QB Rating

    I agree that "money ball" is overrated to a degree.

    The problem is....it's pretty much the best option for small and mid market teams.

    "money ball" is really the only way a team that plays in a market like San Diego (or Oakland for that matter) can stay in contention more often than not.

    The only other option for teams like the Padres is to try and splurge every so often, then suck for a lot of years in a row, then splurge again.

    If I have to choose between those two options I'll go with moneyball and watch the Padres contend pretty much every year and, thus, always have a chance.

    I wish we could have a salary cap in baseball so we won't have to rely on that, but that'll never happen.

    Anyways, carry on with your lists. :)

    Didn't mean to cause confusion.

    The thread starter said to make your own "top 10 overrated" list, but I've gone further.

    I'm at 18 on my personal list, not the entire thread's list.

    1) Apple - 95% marketing and hype, ~5% computer market share. One million iPhones sold in a year? Nokia sells more than 30 million phones in a quarter.
    2) MTV - They betrayed their original following.
    3) Nirvana - Depressing, want to kill myself kind of music.
    4) Hybrid vehicles - Show me a purely electric engine that has a lot of torque and 250 hp, and we'll talk.
    5) Nascar - Sorry, but they just turn left.
    6) 98% of the rap/hip hop "artists" out there.
    7) Avenged Sevenfold - Blech.
    8) Guns 'n Roses - Nasal wailing just doesn't do it for me.
    9) The BCS - Do you think the best team in NCAAF will be ranked #1 at the end of the season?
    10) Tour de France - If a European doesn't win it, French outrage ensues.

    1) Reggie Bush---I love that he's from my neck of the woods, the 619 eyeblack thing, and his highlights from USC, but what has he done to be considered such a great starting pro RB? He's always shared carries, with Duece McCallister, LenDale White, and even Hutsona or whatever in Helix. He just hasn't lived up to the hype.
    2) Bubblegum commercial hip hop- I listened to rap since I was little, but I can't stand the radio anymore. Hip Hop is Dead, and the South killed it. There are good stuff out there, but u gotta search for it.
    3) Emo's- depressed little fu[kers with no reason behind it. How's that a trend?
    4) Friends and Sienfeld - Adult humor without the humor. We get it, KKKramer is mentally disabled and trips a lot. How long can u really laugh at that?
    5) Chrysler 300Ms- great lookin car, but it's still a wannabe Bentley.
    6) Bloody Marys - must be an acquired taste. Maybe when I'm older.
    7) The East Coast - Bad weather doesn't make you tougher. It makes you jealous.
    8) iPods - I got one and I love it, but there are better quality mp3's out there for cheaper. It's the name that sells now.
    9) Huge sunglasses - When the suns out, you can't tell the difference between any of the girls at Grossmont college, they all just look the same.
    10) being 20 years old- Why are all the hot women 21+? The longest year of your life. Every other country can handle liquor before then. Are American youths that immature/ sensitive that they can't handle it earlier? Sadly, yes.

    Curses to your over simplification of Seinfeld.

    Kramer isn't even the funniest part of the show

    :mad:

    I would hope not. How it got voted the funniest television show in history over I Love Lucy remains a huge mystery to me.

    I wouldn't label it the funniest in history.

    It's one of those hit or miss shows with me where it's either very dull or pretty damn funny, although it generally hits more than it misses.

    Still, there are other shows that are a lot funnier, the other show you labeled "overrated" being one of them. :)
