I wish ppl would leave Balo alone...

I know he creates alot of the media shitstorm that surrounds him himself, but it hurts the development of the player IMO..

as the old saying goes: Let 'em play

I just don't see why Balotelli gets so much Media attention. It's either he's just that good... Or the Media is in love with him...

Like I said he creates the attention for himself... but they take it over the top IMO.

It wasnt like this years ago... players didnt have to constanly be on show for the media to drool over. Now badboys like Balo get exposed and get hated, and IMO it can affect them as a player

king_alex10 wrote:Here are my working definitions for the 2 terms, hopefully this clarifies a bit:

Overrated: a player is overrated when his value to the team (club or national) and league are completely overstated. "Gareth Barry is so valuable to his team because he keeps things ticking/moving in midfield" when really it could be any tom, dick, or harry that does what he does. The description of the player is often too highly ranked, and therefore his rating too high. "James Milner is a great player because he works so hard for the team, he is so great". His value is overstated because besides working hard, what does he do? what merits does he have? are the merits he does have appraised to highly? this is what I think when I think in terms of overrated.

Overhyped: The buzz around the palyer is too high and unwarrented. "pastore is the next maradona" when they dont do nearly the same thing. "Messi is the best footballer the world has ever seen" when his career isnt even over yet. The player is advertized or promoted to extremes.

Much appreciated.

Had to be Jibers to mention Zidane. Jeez. Anyway, James Milner wins this one hands down for me. Would add Gareth Barry but I don't see the point anymore. No one but his mother and his doggy rates him...

Exactly they do that only with Balotelli... Well mostly with him. I don't know what they see in him, usually when they publish these things in the newspaper... they do it to get the readers attention... I just don't see how people in general tend to care what Balotelli does off the pitch... It's like they stalk him and write about anything he does.

All I know is that the Italian media made a big deal about him because he was proclaimed to the next best Italian in this decade. Already as a youth scoring more than 20 goals before the age of 20 with Inter. That I guess is reasonable... But why the english media making such a big deal? Like for crying out loud, they are even filming him when he is getting dressed, putting a bib on. Sure it's funny to watch, and it's weird that he can't put it on... but c'mon... I might aswell film him when he's in the shower too. If thats the case, then the English media might think he might also be a big thing in the future..
