DavidYorkshire -I think he means better athletes, than are on the American soccer team.JasonJ -
The WNBA has better athletes
most popular game in the entire world with the highest paid sportsmen (except mayweather)
for those talking about athletics. its not only about being a good athlete - its about skill. is damien maia the best athlete? no but he beat carlos condit in seconds without getting hit. how could he do that if is not a great athlete?
same principle applies to football (soccer). what messi can do is like that. its beauty, its angles and timing. its speed and changes of pace. its complex. its skill.
