What do you make of a magazines "all star" picks when 1/2 of the winners and runner ups are gone, on life support, or their manufacturing company is out of business

Brian Wright wrote a letter to the editor of Automobile magazine pointing out that 3 winners and 7 runner ups from 1991 to 2012 weren't enough to survive, or keep their companies in business

Saturn SC, Chrysler LH, Plymouth Neon, Saab 900, Oldsmobile Aurora and Mercury Mystique, Pontiac Solstice, Fisker Karma, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, Mazda RX 8, Lotus Elise

It's not that the "all star" pick is the same as the Madden Curse, or other famous winning problem, like the Heisman Trophy ( I'm no expert, but don't Heisman winners also have a big problem after winning?) but it seems like these 3 things are nothing but trouble.
