Well it should be stated that the parents who take our sons or daughters to compete at any sport on this planet should be named as well. Yes, even my grandfather ,who took us to play, and fell down 45 rows of stairs and not dropping any of the 16 beers for those athletes who lost that day. In fact some of the greatest games my dad played kept no stats. No MVP just the game.

Gordon, nobody did mention nascar drivers.

Oh please don't mention NASCAR drivers - or F1 drivers, etc.

I can't think of any "sport" that is more boring. You don't even see the "athlete", just the car. It goes round and round and round.

How can it be anyone else but Haile Gebrselassie who set a new World Record in the Marathon. He only at least 20 seconds of the old record. Since when did Sports Illustrated actually know what an Athlete was. :)

Paula Radcliffe deserves top spot for coming back to win the NYC Marathon. If SI disagrees, I would like to see Brett Favre run 26 miles first.

Oh please.

Sports Illustrated picks Brent Favre as its athlete of the year. Big deal.

This isn't some kind of international award. Foreigners need not enter.

So Roger Federer or Rhinaldo or Sid Crosby shoudn't fell slighted.

My question is why our media up here feels we have to comment on it? Because frankly, this award has absolutely nothing to do with us.

I think Favre was selected more as a career achievement Sportsman and how can you knock it.Look at the records,the toughness and durability.Most QB's are happy to start 16 or 18 games in a row let alone a couple of hundred.Honorable mention has to go to Roger Federer.What kind of season did he have? #1 ALL year, Not many have ever had better.And Jimmie Johnson wasn't too shabby on the NASCAR circuit this year.10 wins is more than alot of drivers have their entire career!
