Hendo They are two different players who really can't be compared, and to say Rino is overrated, is just a bit shortsighted.
Well, I'm not sure really. Shortsighted, or a different opinion about a player in a discussion forum?
Whenever someone says 'overrated' in here it sends out alarm bells when it doesn't always need to.
In real life, people rarely rate 2 players exactly the same all across the board, do they?
If two coaches are discussing a player there can be variance, even tho they both think and agree he's a good player.
In my experience, I can't recall too often when I've seen 2 people down the pub, at a game, etc, when their respective opinions of a player have aligned perfectly. There's usually been some divergence somewhere.
There are so many facets to a player's game, and to the game itself, that often aren't nuanced on a message board.
If I rate a player, and you rate him less, I'm 'overrating' him relative to you (in your judgement of him).
I might think he's better than you do, but that's all, and you might rate him highly too.
Indeed, you might rate some aspects of his game and abilities higher than I do.
Same if someone says a player is underrated, it doesn't mean everyone else thinks he's shite. Or at least, it shouldn't.
Of course, if someone thinks a player is indeed outright shite, then they can say that.
