Default power ranking nonsense

is it only me that thinks power ranking are a complete waste of time and effort
surely the only power ranking that matters is the League standings ?

I have also never quite understood the obsession US Sports have with Power Rankings. I have always thought they were pointless and about as useful as the rankings they use for College Sports, they are purely subjective.

Still I am sure certain things about UK Sports baffle US fans of the sports.

I will always read them but take notice.

Subjective or not, the rankings for college sports are not only useful, they are everything, they hold weight on the outcomes of a teams season. power rankings in the NFL however, they mean nothing.

I read them for a laugh but don't actually take them as any value.
We were top of one this season for god's sake hehe.

It is interesting seeing the views but it just gives journos something to write home about.

I guess it is because they don't have League tables like we do in Football here, which I suppose are power rankings !
