And I must say that people who actually watch the games must see the big difference in the way Messi and Ronaldo play and the biggest difference I would say is that even if Messi doesnt score a goal in a fifa game

Ronaldo hype and Ballon d'Or nowdays

Your opinions

Hello there. Would like some mature comments about the subject. Sorry if there is some grammar issues (not my first language)


Ballon d'Or is a political popularity contest where money talks and mainly goals matter. You only have to look back to the scandal of 2013 and understand what happened then and why, when they extended the voting deadline. Anyone with a half a brain knows that they didnt want Messi to win 5th Ballon d'Or on row because "it could have made the award less important." They also didnt want Ribery to win it because he is not marketable enough so they extended the vote a day after Ronaldo had scored a hattrick against Sweden and it was a big news everywhere and clearly changed the result.

Also, you cant compare these that are now won to the ones that were won 1955-2009. For instance Pele never won it and Maradona only once. So now that Ronaldo and Messi will most likely both win it like 4-6 times in the end, does that make them superior players to Maradona and Pele..? Of course not.


To add my few thoughts about the yearly Ronaldo vs Messi (vs others) discussion. People really put way too much importance solely on amount of goals scored. If you look at Ronaldo, a very big procent of hes goals comes against weak teams in Spain and in the CL group stage. (and just this season 30% of hes goals have been penalties and just one outside the box) compared to the way he actually performs in those 15-20 hardest games during a year, the difference there is huge.


And I must say that people who actually watch the games must see the big difference in the way Messi and Ronaldo play and the biggest difference I would say is that even if Messi doesnt score a goal in a game, he could still be one of the best if not the best player on the field where as Ronaldo, if he doesnt score, he is usually pretty useless to hes team because of hes selfishness (shoots almost as much as Benzema, Bale and James all three combinet) the non-existent playmaking ability and defending.


And the Ronaldo hype in 2013 and 2014 has been pretty silly too. Just looking at their goals and assists per game ratio, they are almost identical. Just a little in favour of Ronaldo. With the hype you would think there is a huge gap and so called best year for Ronaldo and weak year for Messi was 30 goals less than Messis 91 goal year. Now there is the real gap. Not to even talk some other important stats that are ignored like key passes. This season in La Liga they are about the same but in CL after 6 games Ronaldo has 6 key passes and Messi has 23.


So its sad how blind people have become just because of goals and use those mainly as an argument in "who is the better player" discussion. Football imo is much more than just goals.


So to end, do you think they made Ballon d'Or worse in 2010, completely ruined it in 2013 and also agree that maybe once both Ronaldo and Messi are out of the picture, this award will become more like it was before 2010..?
