You know White is not only a football player but to me, he changed football

125Tony GonzalezAnthony David Gonzalez is a former American football tight end who played 17 seasons in the National Football League.

Why is Tony Gonzalez even on this list instead of Brett Favre Tony Gonzalez doesn't have any records and he stinks

He is the best motorcycle rider of all time. Still at the top, more than 20 years after his first world championship win. How many can stay at the top for so long and with such a dominance? He deserves to be in the top 10 of the best sportsmen of all time

This guy most be in the top ten, because he is by far the best in his category (motorcyle) of all time. 9 time world champion is hard to believe, it is only compare with federer, Michael Jordan, schumacher and others in their respective categories. And still has more to show...

Vale is the best rider of the world. He is eternal because he rides and wins since 1996! What an amazing goat! He's the number one!

Vale is emotion, life, doctor46!

129Edwin Moses

Edwin Moses is the greatest athlete of all time!

"Moses won 107 consecutive finals (122 consecutive races). He set the world record in his event four times. In addition to his running, Moses was also an innovative reformer in the areas of Olympic eligibility and drug testing."

Edwin Moses was the most dominant athlete EVER! Lets not forgot his win streak spanned a _decade_. Every athlete has 15 minutes of fame but Moses ran
Like a day and a half. 122 consecutive wins... Gimme a break.

If you know anything about sports at all, you can't neglect edwin

130Steve Young

Focus, intensity, three sport athlete. Because of his athleticism and speed he was slated to be a cornerback or receiver in college, not a quarterback. He would be elite in any sport, much like Jerry Rice. Always treated Joe with respect. Unfortunately Joe didn't do likewise.

131Vince Carter

he is the best dunker of all time and has the best hops. he can make it happen

His talent level is unreal. He admitted to not working hard throughout his career and still had all of his peers in awe of what he did. Imagine if he had decided to try.

He is the best dunker on the earth. After him Shawn kemp.

Awesome player with an absolute amazing skill set that devastated the defenses of his era. If not for injuries he would have had one of the best running back careers ever!

um how can you make a list and forget him? Even if you hate the Bears you gotta give him props - Osiris13

The best running back ever from a packers fan

RC is truly a great athlete and would excel in many disciplines that are fitness and finesse oriented but I feel the sport itself, despite it's documented difficulty, hinders his ranking. I just put in for Jeff Ward, RC's original mentor, who's a FOUR sport success and two sport Hall of Famer. - MJRydsFast

Statistically the best athlete of all time. Who else has won every single championship they've ever competed in? NOBODY in my knowledge! I know he didn't win every supercross championship, but he did win every single outdoor championship that he entered.

The greatest motocrosser of all time. The toughest man in one of the worlds most demanding sports.
