    Most Exciting Player?


    Hey guys who do you think is the most exciting player in there respected sport? Try to keep it to the professional ranks, as there is just to many teams and players in the college sports. As I only watch basketball,football and baseball, I will only name players from them, but feel free to bring other sports into this also.

    My choices might be biased for a couple since im from MN

    Football-Adrian Peterson, I mean this guy is amazing to watch, he makes something out of nothing.

    Baseball-Joe Mauer, 2 time batting title champion,amazing defense, if he could improve his power, he has the chance to be one of the elite players.

    Basketball-Lebron James, no explanation needed.

    Agreed. I'm also a big fan of Darren Sproles in San Diego. That little dude doesn't get the ball enough. When he does though... it's often exhilarating.

    It all depends on weather they are showing the game on free to air tv or Sky TV (pay per view).

    Ok just checked. England vs Saffas is on SKY so unless you can find a dodgy feed online you wont be able to watch it (2:30pm London, 09:30am NYC).

    Argentina vs Ireland @ 2:45pm London time
    Walers vs New Zealand @ 5:45 London time (5 hours ahead of New York time)
    But these two you should be able to watch online in decent quality www.bbc.co.uk/sport and go from there.

    Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby. The NHL is about to hit another golden-age with these 2 as the torch bearers.

    Baseball - Dustin Pedroia (This past season) - The "Pedroia Destroya" is one exciting guy to watch. A little guy, but has a spark to him that is about as dynamic as it gets these days. Overall though, (Even though i loathe the rays) Evan Longoria is going to be a great baseball player in time imo.

    Professional Football - Tom Brady, Adrian Peterson, or Reggie Bush.

    Basketball - Lebron James hands down. I do love my big three of KG, Paul Pierce, and former Uconn standout Ray Allen.

    College Football (I know, but i had too! )- Too many to pick. Oh hell, the majority of the Florida Gator offense! Tebow and Harvin FTW! Actually, many great players though. Moreno, Wells, McCoy, Bradford are all very talented.

    You may not see much of him out East, but Phaneuf is an exciting defenseman. He has had the best hits-of-the-year since his Rookie year, and just seems as if he is constantly angry.

    the question wasnt who is the best players....the best to watch. And Marion Barber runs harder than ANYBODY in the league, its enjoyable to watch him dominate a D-fense.

    AP - 1100 Rush Yards 8 TD's, 16 Receptions 0 TD's and 4 fumbles. His team is also 5-6.

    MB - 838 rush Yards 6 TD's, 46 Receptions 2 TD's and 5 fumbles. His team is 7-4.

    MB is a better all around back, especially in passing game.

    And among the elite players at his position. Been a while since there has been a d-man like that.

    Yes, he is quite ridiculous. He will be a multiple Norris winner soon as Lindstrom leaves!

    Hits like Scott Stevens, but with a better offensive touch. His game reminds a lot of Rob Blake back in his prime.

    I still don't think I can agree with that statement, you give AP and MB with a little running room, AP is going to make more of it, AP did great in recieving last year, and you can't say MB is a better all around back as AP running ability is enough to make him better.

    AP is better is space. MB is better at creating his own space. MB has better hands, and is much more of a threat out of the backfield, the stats dont even compare.

    MB doesnt have the open space moves, etc as AP does, but he still produces the big play. IE 70 yard reception vs Cardinals. They have the same ammount of TDs, and Dallas is 7-4.

    MB is the best finisher in the league hands down. MB owns the 4th qtr, and nobody can disagree with that.

    I love AP, but like to watch MB more.

    The margin between Peterson and Barber isn't even close.. People talk about Adrian Peterson being one of the best backs anybody has ever seen... and they say Marion Barber runs hard! but thats about all you'll hear about him
