    ALL ABOUT THE HYPE: BRADY IS #2 ON THE FORBES MOST INFLUENTIAL LIST, IS THIS Y WE CAN'T WIN RINGS?


    interesting list of the of the most influential athletes in the world (from US perspective) esp the top 10 influential athletes. outside of #1 jimmy johnson who actually wins races and championships in nascar no one in the top 10 is a recent WINNER of anything (in terms of team or individual championships). the brady brand has exploded with gissy. again, would be nice if those who actually WON rings and races closer to this decade were being rewarded. that was the appeal of the old tiger woods who is no longer on the list. #4 on the list of course is the well-seated shaq o'neal of the celtics, the only other New England athlete represented. no manny pacquaio anywhere on the list, just amazing. all about the hype nowadays.

    the nfl is the most represented in the top 10 (despite the helmets and further distance from the audience) which tells you how popular the sport really is. nascar and nba are next in order. not one baseball or hockey player made the list which speaks volumes in itself. shaq actually has BETTER numbers than brady in certain key areas in terms of those who are aware him, talking 71% to 35% (more than double), those who like him a lot (45 to 40%) and far less dislikes (4% to 11%, brady more than doubles him again). shaq will be like herpes after his career OFFICIALLY ends, we will never get rid of him!

     
    the other nfl players in the top10 are polamalu at sixth, peyton at 7th, and of course the always-winning TIM TEBOW (down from last year's #3)! all aboout the hype!

    well we should care. i believe brady sometimes appears to spend a bit too much time working on his influence and branding rather than doing everything possible on football. even with gissy, i suspect he connected to her mostly to improve his brand. she certainly has helped him there, dont see how much it has helped his ability to win rings however. before he was appearing on all these lists, we were winning championships. perhaps its just a coincidence.

    I'm going to lift my moratorium on responding to clear, trolling retardation to mention that Tom Brady just won the league MVP in an unprecedented unanimous vote . . .   

    Oh . . .

    And to also mention that spouting idiocy doesn't make you "contrarian," it makes you  . . .    ummmm . . .   you know . . .   an idiot.

    I find it bizarre a NASCAR driver is #1.  No one really cares about this junk, but it's weird that a guy who drives around in circle for 4 hours is "influential".

    I think it was NEGame -- whose perceived identity is cut a certain amount of slack for reasons I won't mention -- who marvelled, in another thread on this topic, that Peyton Manning was listed seventh . . .  supposedly proving that all those "sponsorships" of his weren't worth a long, hard urination on a high, cold lonesome . . .   forgetting (apparently) that Jimmie Johnson -- and every other NASCAR driver -- is nothing more than walking, talking billboard.

    Thank you for mentioning the study you "seen" lippa, and I appreciate your input . . .  although you seem to have missed the point for which I was reaching in my previous post. I know it's hard to sit still and concentrate for hours at a time.

    Hey . . .  here's an idea . . .

    Let's have a professional circuit for air traffic controllers.

    Are they athletes, too, Lippa?

    And if they're not, I'd love to know why.

    Well going to leave it alone  but as a football fan and nascar fan I can apperciate both sports and I know alot of people in new england area dont like nascar but just the point of its more then just sitting and driving in circles and leave it at that.

    Wrong . . . and I can imagine why you would want to "leave it at that."

    At no time would I ever suggest that a professional driver is not an "athlete." He is, in the same way that a guy like John Daly is an athlete. But to suggest that guys like Brady -- or even Manning (as the worst example I can think of) -- who advertise this or that, now and then, are in any way comparable to a guy who wears a jumpsuit with so many sponsors on it that he has trouble remembering which one he should  mention first . . .  well, I have a little trouble with that.

     I like racing . . . and more than that, I like a lot of racing guys (they seem very genuine). A  sport that can give me a guy like Mark Martin deserves its consideration, but I would caution you -- lippa -- if you intend to continue posting here, that saying goofy sh*t and then qualifying said goofy sh*t with "well . . . I'll let it go, but . . . "   is more likely to make you a target than a welcome regular.

    Either that . . .   or I am entirely wrong.

    I'd like to go on record here in order to clear something very important up, Something that's been weighing heavily on me...  It's the-  Alright (breathe Laz)it's the 2 smiley face icons I used in my post up above.  I've never used them before, see?  He!!, I always just assumed that the smiley face at the bottom when you're typing out a post, was just on MY posts alone.  A feature I had reckoned the mods gave to me, b/c they really enjoyed my stuff on here...perhaps they wanted to thank me and brighten up my posting experience at BDC...?  Anyway, then Prairie happened to use a really cool smirking smiley face with a wink, In a response to me (the one about he hopes to never live in a world where "Let it Ride" is better than "Other people's Money").  Now, take this along with the fact that as of late, in order to fully translate wit to the meaning of one's jesting point (god, why is there no "wit" button), I had always used the 8^) combo...  But man, I had dwelled on those oversized 8 eyes for far too long (keeping me awake at night).  So man, today...TO-day, I decided to live on the edge:  I clicked the happy face...And wow!  Look, I'm not an expert yet (as you saw above).  I mean, my title IS "Network Manager" at work...but we have no happy face icon in our system.  So bare with me folks.  By the time I realized my err of putting 2 on, it looked absurd.  And by the time I had attempted to edit and RE-edit it, I had only accomplished erasing my entire post, putting a porn link on, and pasting a pic of Sha sha Gabor on (the 2 happy faces remained).  Wheh, glad that's outta the way; I ahh- I guess I apologize also to those that actually read this (I'm still not erasing it).

    Mothers Day hangover.

    Don't y'all get that?

    Somebody has to pay for six hours of contrived pleasantry that can't be avoided.

    This year, it was lippa.

    Any sport where women and fifty year olds can legitimately compete with young men isn't really a sport. Or at least not a sport that demands actual athletic prowess.

    First of all I can't believe I'm actually responding to a troll like you, but I haveto respond to your insane ranting. Second, only idiots pay attention to stories about who in sports is most influential. If you're doubting Tom Brady, then you are truly an idiot. The man just put together one of the best years of any QB in recent memory, won the MVP in a unanymous vote, etc. I'm getting tired of allof you jealous trolls who think Brady is not the same because he's married to a rich super model. GET A LIFE !!

    If they had asked me to rank Jimmy Johnston's influence, I would have had to ask "when he coached the Cowboys or when he coached the Dolphins?"
