    Speed, Strength, Endurance, and Agility. Wrestlers are very athletic, they possess all of those qualities. I just really don't think cycling requires much of the first 3, just lots of endurance. You've got to draw the line somewhere, do you think Marathon runners are athletic?


  2. Who took all my rep? I was stating my opinion, which is a very reasonable one. I guess I should've just bowed down, and let everyone think they're right.

    When we talk about the 'best athlete' in the NFL - I'm saying it's more impressive for Julius Peppers (6-6 290lbs guy) to run 40yards in 4.42seconds than Michael Vick (6-1 205lbs guy) to run it in 4.31. A lot of people straight up disagree with me here - and that's fine.

    If speed on a track or record on a tennis court is the only measuring stick for being a good athlete than a lot of big names are off the list. I'm taking Deion Sanders, Bo Jackson, Reggie Bush and Donovan McNabb over Roger Federer.. call me crazy

    By definition:
    An athlete is a person possessing above average physical skills (strength, agility, and endurance) and thus seen suitable for physical activities, in particular, contests.

    by definition that is correct.

    i think an athlete is also defined by how much success he/she could have playing ALL sports - not just their specialty

    Hell yeah bro, that man is unstoppable.

    All those guys you listed minus Mcnabb might be better athletes then Federer. Federer has so much on them skillwise, but they're all definitely much stronger, and faster. Bo Jackson IMO probably the most talented athlete ever, but an underachiever. Julius Peppers is an incredible athlete as well. IMO most people are tremendous followers, and see Lance winning ESPY awards for being the best athlete, so they assume he must be the best athlete. To me those awards don't mean much. I mean Eminem wins rapper of the year by the most credible rap magazine(source), do you think that makes him the best rapper in the world? Hell no. Think for yourself. He's so far from being the best rapper, not even close to the top 10. I guarantee most of the people that think Lance is the best athlete also would've thought the world was flat. There are plenty of guys out their that might be better athletes then Federer, I just think its funny that you guys picked a guy who is pretty much strictly endurance to be the best athlete. Sorry to post this all on your quote Deoudes it is not directed at you.

    Oh, thanks for filling me in, great joke too. No **** its a joke, a joke that was intended to mock me, when I never said anything to imply anything close to that. Glad your banging your head on the wall, must be a real pain in the ass to deal with someone with an opinion of their own, who makes sense, and will call you on your BS attempts to insult. I mean its not really a bid deal, I just thought I'd call you on it, it was an attempted cheap shot that did'nt make sense because I never said you'd have to be able to hit around with Federer in order to be the best athlete. You may not have intended to imply, but you implied. Now that I've had time to seriously think about it, Federer probably isn't the best athlete, but he is WAY higher up on the list then Lance. Just face it riding a bike is pretty cake, does'nt take a ton of talent, just a ton of endurance. Nobody's answered my Marathon runner question, hmmmm?

    Hey genius, that joke wasn't even directed at you. You're entitled to your opinion, noone ever questioned that. You on the other hand has repeatedly argued with anyone even suggesting that lance is indeed an athlete, which is flat out stupid. It's a sport, he's an athlete, get over it. Or maybe the general population is stupid and you am smart. The way you're pimpin federer so hard, I hope that bitch has yo money. Either way, this is pointless and I'm done with it. Peace.

    Dude, seriously golf is a sport it does'nt mean that they're athletic. Plus I never said he was'nt an athlete, I just said he's not close to being one of the top athletes. That is not flat out stupid, its logical. And it is quite possible that the gen pop is stupid and that I am smart. And your right I do sweat Federer, probably never seen anyone as skilled as he is.

  12. Read your above post and then this one. Both are by you. You did indeed say lance wasn't an athlete. BTW- I also don't think golfers are athletes- anything I can do drunk, I don't consider a sport(golf, darts, bowl, pool, etc.) At least we agree on that I guess.

    I guess you did'nt understand what I was saying either. It was obviously a joke, one in which he was implying that I said you'd have to be able to hit around with Federer in order to be the best athlete, which I never said or implied. Trying to make me look stupid(leaving myself wide open with that). Just calling him on some BS.

    I did'nt say he was'nt an athlete, I said he was'nt REALLY an athlete. I know, its getting bad. I did contradict myself a bit their. I do think he is an athlete, but not that much of one. To me endurance sports are not very athletic for the most part. I've been saying basically the same thing throughout the thread, that he is an athlete, but not a top athlete. I do feel that I am bad at debating, and get way too aggressive, which rightfully leads to people getting pissed at me. I have a "I know I'm right" vibe about me that I will have to work on. Peace.

  16. IMHO comparing athletes from one sport to athletes of another sport is like comparing apples to oranges. Different sports require different skills. If it's athleticism we're talking about than I'd have to say Julius Peppers would **** all over Roger Federer, if talking about which athlete is more dominant than I'd say Federer has the advantage. I also would never compare athletes from team sports with athletes from individual sports, there's just so many differences between the 2, I noticed this from football vs. shot put.

    Best individual competitor = Lance Armstrong
    Best team sport competitor = Tom Brady

  17. To whoever hit me with neg reps for the golf comment- let me just say I was joking, not meaning to offend. Sarcasm is hard to convey in typing. Man I guess sports is a serious topic!

  18. I guess if your going strictly by definition it might be Adam Archuleta. That guy boasts like 4.3 40, 550 bench, all at 210lbs, but he does'nt perform even close to what his stats would lead you to believe.

  19. Lance is a super athelete. He is the one of the fiercest warriors amongst us.

    (Alex- I am so keeping myself from neg repping and telling you to eat doo-doo)

    Neg rep me and tell me to eat doo-doo all you want. Just have a good reason for it. Lance is a fierce warrior, just not an extremely athletic one. If the thread were who's the greatest sportsman or something then maybe he should win. He can't jump high, run fast, lift explosively, etc compared to the top athletes out their. To add to that I don't see how he's very skilled either. I hold firm to my belief that most people that think Lance is the best athlete, are not good athletes themselves. Personally, I am fast, strong, skilled, have excellent balance, and its a slap in the face to say someone that is riding a bike, that does'nt take much of any of those is the best athlete in the world. Now jump off the bandwagon and take my points away joker. Its really unbelievable to me that not a single sole has sided with me on this, I guess thats what I get for posting on a bodybuilding site. Please answer this: Do you think bodybuilding or marathon running is extremely athletic?

  22. "Personally, I am fast, strong, skilled, have excellent balance, and its a slap in the face to say someone that is riding a bike, that does'nt take much of any of those is the best athlete in the world. "

    I think you are 100% wrong. Lance is great for all those reasons you just listed. You are so wrong. Fast-- speeds of whop knows 50-60 mph. Try falling out of your car at that speed. (please, try it) Strong, ever try to ride a bike up mountain? Balance, ever seen them bitches take wet, fast corners? Appearently not. Skilled. Not going to even respond.

    I don't know what traditional answer you are looking for, ie: Barry Sanders, Micheal Jordan, whatever. It is a combination of factors that makes them great. I am glad you are "Personally, I am fast, strong, skilled, have excellent balance, and its a slap in the face to say someone that is riding a bike, that does'nt take much of any of those is the best athlete in the world. "


    But you are just looking to stir stuff up on the internet; or are really not bright.

  23. You can argue all day about who the greatest athletes are, but when you guys start ripping other sports is when you cross the line. All sports at those levels take skill and commitment beyond what most of us will ever understand. So just because you don't like or follow a certain sport does not mean you should disrespect it.
    And I'm sorry Crowler, but to say that bodybuilding is 200% harder than triathlons and sports like those is a joke. Yeah, you train hard and diet strict in bodybuilding, but those endurance sports push the boundries of human capacity for pain.

  24. For myself, I would have to say Pyrros Dimas.

    But you are just looking to stir stuff up on the internet; or are really not bright.
    I may be stubborn, but not bright, nah. You think cause he can ride a bike 50mph that makes him fast, negro please. Speed is measured in a 40 or 100 yard dash, not going down a hill on a ten speed. You think Lance could run a 40 fast, extremely doubtful. Yeah I've ridden up many steep hills, sure it takes a little strength, but mainly endurance. Cyclists weigh 140 pounds, you really think they have any type of strength? Balance you're right about. It takes a decent amount of balance to take those corners, but IMO a lot of other sports take far more balance. For skill, you did'nt say anything. I mean I understand it takes some type of skill to ride, but seriously not much. Do you really think it takes as much skill to ride a bike as it does to return a 140mph serve with crazy spin on it. I just don't see how. I'm not trying to stir up ****, just trying to speak the truth. Cycling is a sport people with less skill take up. They don't have the skill for B-ball, Football, Tennis, Soccer so they ride a bike cause almost anyone can do that decently. And for AFOX what do you mean when you start ripping other sports is when you cross the line? So every sport is considered to be equal, thats just loser talk. Of course some sports are easier then others, some take more of this, some take more of that. I understand damn well that cycling is very difficult and takes a lot of heart, just not a ton of athleticism. Do you think a marathon runner has similar athleticism to a basketball player? What I'm saying is really not ridiculous at all, its just not the mainstream thought I guess.
