    SOCCER:

    In 2011 the sports newspaper Olé made a poll with 95.000 respondents. 56% valued Messi as better than Maradona. The poll was online.

    In 2015 a poll made by an agency of political consulting gave that 66% of respondents valued Maradona as the best football players of all times, and 21% did so for Messi.

    ah I was tho... could even talk about pre-WW2 soccer... stopped when Nigeria lost against Italy in 94...

    Anyway, you asked about recognition, who gives a fook about who made the poll. If you ask the true OGs, they will all give the nod to Pelé & Maradona.

    You seem a bit mad that i made you admit that you based your bullshit thread on pure bias and opinion rather than facts.

    You could even talk about preWW2 tennis or cycling and Federer and Merckx, from small European countries, are still the best eva. Same for Messi in fútbol at this point.
    A guy who refuse to watch the best player of s. XXI in a team that is the opposite of Italian catenaccio is not to be taken serious

    Indeed, Im not to be taken seriously since I no longer watch it, obviously.

    But it´s like MMA/Vale Tudo.. You have to study its history if you´re indeed interested.

    You do know that is not true? And hopefully you'll even show the leaked emails as some kind of proof, because it doesnt say it in there either.

    not really. Most of the candidates aren’t fighting anymore, at least against meaningful competition. Anderson, GSP and Fedors legacies are pretty much a wrap at this point with Jon and Aldo still adding to theirs. I think these 5 have done plenty to deserve such recognition. There’s never going to be a time when a GOAT can be unanimously agreed upon. There will always be haters and dick riders no matter what the future holds. The age of the sport* is irrelevant.

    GSP is one of the greatest but you don't need to be a hater to not consider him the GOAT.

    That post you reply brings a bunch of numbers and stats while, casually, completely forgets to take KO/Subs into consideration

    When nº of top wins, nº of defenses, longevity and level of competitions are similar - finshing your opponent instead of let it go to the judges make a huge difference when discussing the GOAT.

    not really, no. GSPs streak without losing a round carries more weight, imo. People win with Hail Mary KOs and subs after getting their asses beat for 3-4 rounds. There’s no disputing the dominance of that streak. It’s insane, considering the quality of opposition he was facing. Finishes are great, everybody loves finishes. GSPs streak is by far, the greatest indicator of someone purely outclassing the best in the world and just being on another level. These weren’t razor thin decisions like Jon is eeking out. GSP dominates every minute of the fights.
