    Fucking bullshit list. Bones ahead of AP my ass. Guy comes back from a severe injury playing behind a garbage QB and could rush for over 2G's. That isn't enough to be ahead of a guy that won two fights this year. That's a slap in the face to AP not that he cares after he becomes MVP this year.

    What it says. Most people that are not American don't even know 80% of that list. And even then the athletes are stars in an American sport.

    Just more American propaganda on its own awesomeness LMAO

    Most Magazines in other countries if doing a top list will include athletes from around the world. Otherwise they would say ESPNS (insert country) top athletes of the year.

    Generally just the standard American way of media.

    Yes. AP should definitely be top 3 (ahem) pound for pound athlete in any sport in 2012. Good on Jones for making the list though. Nice to see him be recognized more widely. He's earned it.

    Peterson won't be MVP, and if you're going to be outraged, then it should be with Eli at #4 on that list.

    25% of the list is comprised of non-Americans.
