Mr Brady, if you last in the league for another 6 years and win another ring or two, you could indeed be one of the greatest like your childhood hero, Joe Montana.
For me the greatest sportmen/athlete is Bret "Hitman" Hart. Bret has been recognized as one the greatest World Champions worldwide.

Can you really be a champion in a "sport" that is scripted and choreographed? If Bret Hart is the greatest sportsman of all time, is Rocky Balboa 2nd?

Rocky could be second if he had 300 plus matches a year for 14 year period. The outcomes of the matches maybe scripted and the moves maybe choreographed, but the pain and the ahleticism of pro wrestling is very real.

Which is why Brady can't be considered

Well what about a word for CB Fry?

- Captain of England and Sussex Cricket teams. Never lost a Test as England captain. 94 centuries, including an unbettered six consecutive first-class centuries in 1901.
- Equalled world long jump record, and won both long jump and 100 yards at Oxford v Yale in 1894.
- Played amateur football with the Corinthians and later profesionally for Southampton, Portsmouth and England, going to an FA Cup final with the former in the 1901/1902 season.
- Played Rugby Union for Oxford University, Blackheath, and the Barbarians.

After graduating from Oxford Fry taught at Repton, became a delegate to the League of Nations and was offered the throne of Albania.

I'm sorry, but watching Federer just secure his 3rd Australian open title, the guy has to (or will have to) be considered in the same league as Gretzky and Bradman. To be as dominant and as brilliant as he has been in such a competitive and professional era of tennis, is absolutely amazing.

Federer is amazing, no doubt. I actually enjoy watching him play, and I'm no tennis devotee. I'll include him in the discussion when he starts breaking all-time records. For now, he's the best in the game, by far, and has set some smaller records...hell, he never lost a set at the Australian Open, first person since 1980 to do that in a major...but, hes' still 4 grand slams short of Pete...when he passes Pete....when he finally wins a French Open, then I'm willing to admit he should be mentioned with a Gretzky or a Jordan or some of the other athletes from sports I do not follow. Has anyone tossed Carl Lewis or Jesse Owens or Mark Spitz out there? I mentioned Eric Heiden a few pages ago. I might be the only person advocating for Olympians. I wonder how many people in here know who Jim Thorpe was.
