    This is clearly an US oriented list. Can't treat this as an all time list. You probably never heard of names such Valentino Rossi, Ayrton Senna (people commited suicide in brazil when he died).

    How can Serena Williams be even in this list on top of Federer? I don't understand. And Muhammad Ali is incredibly overrated, regarded as the greatest in probably the most fictitious sport there is.

    can someone explain to me how this list was composed? I know an argument can be made for all these athletes and most of them I can agree with but not the order.. based off popularity soccer alone should have atleast 2 players on this list, I mean its the worlds most popular sport. and where's golf? TIGER WOODS literarily change the face of golf and made nikey launch a golf line just because of him and when he wasn't on top anymore they terminate the entire line also being the most decorated olympian means more than you think, it's an even held every 4 years and to come back 4 years later and dominated is beyond amazing. and to say "entertaining athletes" you really have to redo this list..this list is like saying range rover is more reliable than toyota.....realllyyyyyyyyyyyy
