And Dave Grohl is no (insert drummer here that isn't completely worthless). He's a pretty great drummer, but he's nothing phenominal. There are plenty of better drummers with the same style. I will give you that as far as popular rock music goes, Grohl is pretty close to the best, but there are still many better drummers.

Tre Cool is NOT a good drummer. I can outplay him anyday.

And Dave Grohl is nothing spectacular either.

I'm too lazy to find pics, but I'd say Atom Willard, Ron Welty, Chad Smith, Travis Barker, Kyle Jenkins (goes to my school), Arthur Vint (another one that goes to my school. I can guarantee you he will be the next Gene Krupa or Buddy Rich), Carmine Appice, Neil Peart, and these guys:

Hahaha, love yourself much? And without attacking you, I really doubt you could; seeing as Tré Cool is a professional drummer, who practices pretty much every day to increase his skills. Even if his drumming may be simple in most Green Day songs, it doesn't mean he is a bad drummer.

LOL, outplay.

Just because he is professional, it doesn't mean he is better than me. You don't think I practice every day? Being professional doesn't have much to do with talent. Look at the White Stripes, for example...

I'm not doubting that you are a good drummer, I'm just doubting the notion that Tré Cool is a bad drummer. He is not, he is a good drummer; all because he doesn't make stupidly complicated drum fills that don't actually add anything to the song except for show off blind talent (no names mentioned), doesn't mean he's bad. He makes fun beats that compliments the songs perfectly.

And with the professional/talent debate: Meg White really is a special case...How can someone whose been drumming as long as her be so average?

You still can't deny that Portnoy is the greatest all around percussion musician. I've heard Faust, and now Peart, do better solos or whatever, but that doesn't mean they're 'better'. Portnoy just does what fits the music; Dream Theater is all about flowing music. If he were to break loose on some random solo it would screw up the whole system.
