Before some nutter starts adding the entire initial database of Football Manager 2008?

I agree. They shouldn't of been allowed in the first place.

As much as I love football, I'd prefer it if they wouldn't take over the character section.

people will do anything for some points... I added a "teddy bear" yesterday... sorry, I can't get the teddy bear rocket launcher from Fallout3 out of my head.

sports stars should be limited to cover athletes.

Yeah, and while we're at it, can we stop adding ridiculous concepts like "Grass", so we can add every game ever made and rack up the points....

Cover athletes would be fine, although even they aren't really necessary.

yeah but I would liken them to being the "star" of the game.  so it seems to me they would be acceptable.

and yeah, I agree with the Grass thing.  same with "Earth" and "Human"

tired of deleting Earth from everything that has an actual setting.

Yeah, pretty stupid. There are some really dumb concepts, and many that need to be added.

I agree with you dude..that and other completely stupid stuff like Dildos and lag..i mean seriously do we need a separate page for that? Not only that,  but ppl attach like 5000 games/chars/objects/concepts to it and make a killing. Please do something bout this madness.

I concur with previous posters... Sports stars should be limited to only cover athletes for games.

GiantBomb is trying to cover everything. Even the silliest concepts and people who barely have anything to do with games are added.  It's part of the uniqueness of GiantBomb, but this does lead to some problems like adding every athlete ever, which is deemed unnecessary by many. Perhaps team pages would be better?

What needs to happen is that the Game Industry needs to stop making Sports Games all together. I mean, who the hell plays any of that crap anyway?

Oh wait, I forgot that other people like stuff that I completely hate.

Yeah, definitely cover athletes only.

and I really think pictures of the sport stars should be limited to in game screenshots because someone could upload 100 images of a football player thats been in a video game but the pictures aren't of them in a video game. People need to remember that this is a Video game site firstly not a wiki clone.

To expand on this, how about deleting games from specific location that doesn't actually feature said location but instead just a team originating from said city? By that logic I could pretty much add every nation of the world to most FIFA games cause their national teams appear in the game. And obviously added pretty much any location to a game like Football Manager 2008 cause you know, most cities are entered into the database of that game.
