Yeah! Wow, i totally forgot about hockey, that's embarrassing. I would nominate bertuzzi. For a man his size he has the sickest hands, hits like a truckload of bricks, waaaaaay faster than anyone realizes, and isn't afraid to stick up for his teammates. (eh colorodonians?)

DUDE! This is the 2nd time you've replied with insults. If you can't handle criticism on your STUPID polls, then take it to the newbie board and learn some etiquette.

You're asking for opinions and GETTING them. Whatayawant?

Plus, and this is a biggy, you can ONLY PICK 1!!!!!

We have more than enough a**holes on here to deal with, let alone a noob trying to dish it out.

GROW UP OR GET LOST!

Lance Armstrong has all my respect as an athlete.

Honorable mention to marathon runners, most notably the Kenyans.

Lance Armstrong as far as the most Dominating in HIS sport...but I wouldn't necessarily say he's the best athlete in the world.

Ask this question in the South and you'd be likely to get:

"DALE EARNDHART!! He wuz the best dern racer evur!! YEEEHAWWW!!!!"

It's scary, Earndhart has a bigger following than Jesus here.

he's a good athlete but I'll go with Lance Armstrong..

doing what he did is pretty unbelievable

also I doubt you would have heard of him but here in New Zealand a guy called 'Steve Gurney' is a legend

http://www.subaru.co.nz/Roam/Icons/Steve_Gurney.php

he's a multi sport athlete and does indurance races,he's won the coast to coast 9 times, the coast to coast is a foot race from one side of the South Island of New Zealand to the other through some of the most rugged tarrain in the world, in the dark!

theres swimming, running, kayaking, mountain biking..

check him out, he's like 40 years old and has just won that race for the 7th consecutive year!

I have to say Mike Vick as well, because I watched him against Florida State his Freshman year. I've still never seen anything like that.

At the moment I've got to be patriotic and go for Jonny Wilkinson. There have been rumours in the UK press that a couple of NFL teams have sounded him about switching. I would love to see him try out over there. The downside is that you lot are looking at him purely as a kicker, when he could do so much more. Yes he's a damned good kicker of the ball, but he runs with power and moves and he tackles like a ton of bricks. He wouldn't look out of place as a WR, RB or DB. He put a hit on one guy in the World Cup Finals that was very reminiscent of the Atwater hit on Okoye.

Jason Robinson would have been a good RB untill i saw him get nailed by Jonathan Meredith from Samoa in the RWC 2003 Pool Game

Rupeni Caucaunibuca would be a great RB
he has the best break tackles in full contact rugby and rugby is a sport of hard hitters, only tough guyz play rugby. american football is a rough sport to!

Ain't that the truth, I played both (a long, long time ago!!). I remeber Ellerey Hanley & a couple of other rughby players giving american football a try, back in the eighties or early nineties, they were so suprised by the level of contact.

Martin Johnson, the now retired England captain is a huge NFL fan, he had a spot on national radio over here giving his verdicts on the playoffs. Gotta admit the guy knows his stuff. He would have made a fantastic LB.

again.. I have to ask what you mean by athlete. Lance is the most dominating in HIS sport... but can you say he's the best athlete??? I can't. I would say he's the most dominating athlete in HIS sport... but there is no way I can say he's the best athlete in th world. I see an athlete as someone that has speed, strengh, endurance, power... the coordination and skills to play many sports at a higher level of skill than most. Like a Bo Jackson when he was in his prime. He had world class speed, power, strength.. and was a proffessional athlete in more than one sport. Wilt Chamberlain in his prime. THESE guys are the types that are considered the best ATHLETES.

hands down ray lewis.

The other question floored me because this was an overwhelming landslide. The NFL's coaches said that Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis was the most dominating player regardless of position. Lewis was the only player to receive double-digit votes with the runner-ups receiving a mere two to three votes. In fact, only five or six votes total were given to offensive players.

they would even take him over elway...

During his retirement news conference, Shannon Sharpe was asked who was better, Ray Lewis or John Elway? "I'll put it to you like this," he said. "I would take my 1997 [Broncos] team over that 2000 Ravens team ... " Sharpe added, "I'm going to have to take my homeboy, No. 7," referring to Elway.
As competitive as Elway was, watching Ray Lewis single-handely win games for the Ravens certainly makes it a tough decision. I'll take Lewis if for no other reason than his tenacity and his ability to make the players around him to be better
