Now here's a player almost everyone knows, and he has his share of both fans and people who hate him. One things for certain, he gets a lot of media attention! So, do you feel he's worthy of the praise he receives or is it too much? No doubt, a few of you may even think he gets too LITTLE praise. Either way, it's worth some discussion!

I think the old saying "you're never as good as they tell you are and you're never as bad as they ell you are," applies here. I think some of the detractors are based on his style of play....but I also think those that like him think he is better than what the production says.

Everyone has their own personality, his suits him perfect. Im sure some hate and some love like you said, but isnt that true for all sports?

Ehh... Rooney is alright I guess. Not really one of my favorites, but a very solid player none the less. Don't think I could consider him Over-rated, regardless of my feelings towards him.

is he not one of your favorites because of his controversial style of play? The hype around him? Or you're just not a fan of his in general. People are very divided on him.

I too think that he is a kind of a guy which people won't have a neutral ground, either you love him or you hate him. Well I love the way he plays, he really makes sure he will have a goal or just have a chance of hitting a goal and that is a skill not every player has. But I somewhat don't like his arrogant character.

He is very arrogant.....but then again many of the best are...I guess it's just a matter of how he carries it.

I think you have to be so convinced of your talent to play at an elite level, that arrogance is not so far behind. I believe nearly every elite player is arrogant. Just a matter of if they act it.

I don't think he's under or over-rated. He plays the game well, and he has more than his share of friends and enemies. He's a good player, even if i'm not really that big a fan of his.

I dont really think he has the arrogance of some other players around, and if he does he hides it well.

I don't recall seeing him too overwhelming like some players, maybe he hides it well or its something he just doesn't do.
