One of the other HF posters summed it up nicely in a thread about this SI article: the word "overrated" is stupid (he actually described it more along the lines of 'vague', but in the context of determining a ranked list, they're equally valid descriptions). No one can agree on what overrated actually means, much less the specific criteria that should dictate whether or not someone/something is overrated. Take a word with a vague meaning and then use it in a poll of a group of scholastically unimpressive individuals like professional hockey players, and you get a stupid list with nonsensical results.
