Rating and ranking players is a pastime enjoyed by virtually every sports fan in the world. We just love to put numerical values to players.

It may have something to do with the hint of jealousy we all have for the lavish lifestyles most of these players live; the most successful ones, anyway.

They get paid large salaries, drive the best cars, have the best technology gadgets, are romantically involved with the most beautiful women and, all the while, it's thrown in our face through various media outlets (including TV, advertisements, social media and magazines).

Not only are we jealous, but we're also upset because this lifestyle directly affects us as well. We want our favorite teams to sign these players, but they cannot without the proper funding.

Where does a lot of that funding come from? You guessed it, the fans.

So, as a small consolation prize for our passion and money, it's only right that we should take them to task when we feel they aren't living up to the hype.

All joking aside, there are players who, for various reasons, do get overrated by fans of the game.
