What's More important FEEL or FILL?

It seems to me like today the focus is increasingly rising on "how fast I can play", or "How many FILLS I can play". In the professional arena this is what gives us drummers a bad name. Overplayers, the non musician in the band, and the list goes on and on. Fills are important, but NEVER at the expense of the groove. Groove is King, and should always be the main focus. What would happen if we were to get as excited about how cool we could make the groove, and the fill was like an "Oh yeah, here's this too"???

Just food for thought.
