Re: Is Sydney Crosby the most dominating athlete in sports today?
Gotta disagree. Crosby has been lights out this year, but Ovechkin has been the more dominant player the past couple of seasons. Now that Boudreau is changing the gamestyle in D.C., Ovechkin's stats are taking a beating. Between the two, I'd still take Ovie.
But I don't think you can look at team sports and identify the best player as the most dominating athlete in sports. Instead, you have to look at individual sports to name the most dominant athlete.
A few years ago, it'd be a toss up between Tiger, Lance Armstrong, and Federer. But it's funny how all that has changed in a matter of a year or two. Tiger's pretty much been AWOL since the divorce fiasco, Lance is retired (?), and Nadal has taken over the tennis game.
My bet would be Manny Pacquiao though. And it wouldn't even be a question if it weren't for a blood test/Mayweather running away from it.
That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
