    SI's Fittest 50
    #1
    Just opening this up.

    First off, they have Mr. Eaton as a 6 for Speed... Surely I must be using a different definiton of the word than they are. Likewise his Endurance score of 8.

    Also, personally, no way MY list like this would EVER include an athlete not "using" his hands.

    Yes, that list is very stupid.
    CR 10 as speed?it is very funny, when a lot of footballers are fastest than him
    And Bolt being the fastest man in the history, "only" 10? hehehehe

    And yes, Eaton is faster in his event in comparison with CR too.

    Sports Illustrated is a complete goddamn joke ...and has been for years.

    That "list" is a bogus popularity contest.

    To be fair . . . SI's job is to sell magazines, not be right. They are constantly making assessments and predictions that are completely wrong, and they could NOT care less. They got people to read their stuff. Remember the unofficial motto of entities like SI: there's no such thing as BAD publicity. Sometimes being completely wrong generates the most heat. Think of all the TV/print pundits that are so completely wrong in so many ways yet are still thriving in their jobs.

    This is just bizarre, unless they are thinking that competing for 2 days is somehow the endurance factor. It's almost as if they have just picked random numbers. Do they attempt to justify their speed and endurance scores?

    This list is even bigger joke than the SI's AOY.
    A beautiful theory killed by an ugly fact.

    bottom line: if you're not interested, ignore rather than criticize.

    thank you.
