Not to start a worthless debate, but Tiger Woods called. He wants this thread back.

please. Tiger didn't have the rules changed b/c of him the way the Great One did.

Maybe Wayne will answer Tiger's calls when he stops being a b!tch and gets his ass to some of the smaller tourneys.

Joe Luis was the most dominating sports athlete ever. He was the Heavy Weight champion of the world for 12 years.

Gretzky was not the only cat to have rules changed because of his dominance. Charles Barkley, Shaq, and Wilt had that done for them in basketball.

If auto-racing is a sport, and it's participants athletes, then Petty, Shumacher, and others can enter the debate.

Edwin Moses did not lose a 400 meter hurdles race for 8 years.

Naming Gretzky the most dominant professional athlete of alltime is not as cut and dry as you Canucks want to make it.

maybe he can be part-owner or coach again for a team that is actually relevant.

Gretzky is in the conversation, but lets not forget he has ZERO titles without Messier, Kurri, Coffey, Anderson, Fuhr etc...

Those 80s Oilers teams were stacked to the falkin teets.


LOL at Tiger Woods, I think the same poster brought him up in a thread the other day. Tiger isn't even the most dominant golfer ever. Someday he probably will be (in golf), but he isn't yet.

Championship success wise, Gretzky peaked very, very early. As a combat sport guy, I am inclined to include Royce Gracie and Sugar Ray Robinson.

To me Gretzsky=Joe Montana w/better #s, even though Joe's #s are not anything to sneeze at.

Gretzky is more Jordan than Montana. Both changed their sports forever.

Royce Gracie's sport was fringe during his peak and Sugar Ray was too far back in the day. I am an age-ist when it comes to anything pre-70s. When dudes had pat time jobs and smoked how good could they really be?

your arguments hurt your cause, people were pretty much agreeing with you and now you sound stupid (making people less likely to side with you).

Yes, I am aware. I am also aware that his championship success evaporated when he left Edmonton. The circumstances are slightly different because Gretzky was in his prime in Los Angeles. Joe Montana left the 49ers and they kept on trucking. Gretz left Edmonton, and the Oilers still raised the Cup.
