Are there countries other than USA & UK (Islands) that would release such delusional narcissism?


Where is

- Rugby
- Volleyball

I know but it's so USA slanted. My main complaints with it

Take off
- Jim Brown: Jerry Rice instead
- Dale Earnhardt: No ESPN self promoting. If we include racing it's gonna be Formula 1 and it's not gonna be an American
- Tony Hawk: No ESPN self promoting
- Bo Jackson: HOF in neither sport he played
- Willie Mays: Babe Ruth instead (He was an All Time great hitter and pitcher)
- Jackie Robinson: No Politics


Where is Cricket, Rugby, Volleyball and NON American Olympians. So cycling no longer matters because an American isn't the best?


Some might laugh but why not
Mariusz Pudzianowski

During his career as a strongman, Pudzianowski won five World's Strongest Man titles—more than any other athlete—as well as two runner-up titles

really???????? jerry rice was never the best athlete. Nascar is huge in the U.S. and ESPN is an american newtork so why not Earnhart over Schumacher. Tony Hawk single handedly redefined action sports in this country, but i agree with u there that he shouldnt be on there. If Tony Hawk played any real sport he'd be a lanky, awkward, and unathletic. Bo Jackson was a remarkable athlete and was pretty damn good in two sports... not many can do that... and if it wasnt for injuries he would have collected more accolades in football and baseball. he definitely deserves to be on there. Babe Ruth more athletic than Willie Mays.... whats wrong with you? are you forgetting this list is to find the greatest athlete of all time. You are right about Jackie Robinson too.

and i am gonna laugh at pudzianowski... those worlds strongest men take in so much illegal shit so screw him.
