Re: The 100 most influential people in the world of sports

This shouldn't be the 100 most influential people in the world of sports, but the most influential people in sports, in America.

Typical US biased shit.

Re: The 100 most influential people in the world of sports

Typical American biased Bullshit ,I mean why not just say 100 most influential people in the world of sports in America!!

Seriously most of these so called 'Influential' people, especially those in NBA ,NFL,Nascar(lol) are hardly even heard in other countries ,unless ofcourse the American media actually believes that the US comprises of the entire world :retard:

So true, all those NFL/MLB/NBA/Nascar "superstars" are simply not known at all outside the US... Talk about "the world of sports" another bullshitty American biased article...

At least Business Week pulled off the novelty effect of throwing in Yao Ming into the list.
