I have never understood the love for Syrio and I think Bronn is constantly overrated, in various aspects. Arya, Dany and Tyrion are doing horrible things that they get away with for some reason.

Seems...unlikely that he killed a man that way. But whatever. Maybe he's prettying up the tale of the time he killed some guy. I didn't get too suspicious until I read this:
So I started to critically observe his comments about some of the fight's he's been in.
“Of ours? I did not stop to count. We gained more than we lost, though.”
Now, for a fabulous fighter, there seems to be a lot of bullshit here. Consider Jaime Lannister tells us in ASoS, the way to fight a bowman on horseback is to charge him down, as he'll flee. Consider the trouble Arya, a very fine rider, has sleeping in the saddle in ASoS. Consider that not counting to see how many men you lost, and running away to get to something pleasant, reminds me more of Sam's escape from the Fist of the First Men than a super cool battle.
So when I got up to the mystery of why Daario sleeps so well:
I thought, maybe the answer is he actually hasn't killed all that many people, if anyone.

Yes she has a clique on this board but really outside of these boards she is quite hated so i don't see how anyone can call Sansa overrated.
I agree that she's learning a lot from LF, although we have yet to see her use it. She knows a lot too, but we haven't seen her use it. She's a loaded Chekhov's Gun if I ever saw one. I like Sansa because I see the potential for a really interesting and powerful character arc. So far though, she's still one of the most passive characters in the series.
That said, I really don't think she's hated, aside from the normal, trolling hate that someone has for every character. I think what people are tired of is the extraordinarily strident defense of her, especially in this forum. In that sense, I would definitely call her incredibly overrated, if only because she hasn't actually done anything.

Sand Snakes. They are idiotic savages.
Rhaegar. An idiotic prince who destroys a dynasty for his dick.

Stannis : Dude is an asshole. His claim might be the best, but no one gives a crap.
Victarion: I love his chapters, but the dude is cruel. He doesn't think twice about killing his own men and isn't that much better than a slaver. The Ironborn social values and culture are to blame, though.
Blackfish: What did he do to become so awesome?
Underrated: Littlefinger. He created the biggest plot twist by murdering Joffrey let alone started the whole Stark/Lannister war. I still think he'll cause another major plot twist. After all, he thrives on chaos.

I admit though: The poetic talent of my favourite character is also seriously overrated. The Dornisman's Wife is terrible enough as it is. No need to make the metre even worse. And peach - leech must be the worst rhyme in all of Westeros.
But as far as overrated characters go, it's Stannis, of course.

Did absolutely nothing right in the end.
Runner up is Jaime Lannister the Kingslayer. But at least he has some redeeming features. In there, somewhere. But he too did little right.
And for the bronze medal there's Theon "Reek" Greyjoy. Uppity little snot with little intelligence that got pwned by our friendly neighbourhood Ted Bundy, Ramsay Snow.
Yet all these character generate a lot of love for some reason.
Personally I don't hate them but neither do I admire them for their "achievements".

He's soooo loved, and I just cannot stand him.
I'll go ahead and add in Tyrion and Arya. UGH.
Basically all the characters that people who hate Sansa like.
