Barry Sanders. He was still the best when he retired. That's rare.

On the other hand, I hope Favre stays retired.


Why did he retire so soon? wasn't it because his knees were bad or something?

So soon?

He played for approximately 58.7 years.

No I am not. But I was there some time when Payton, Kemp and Schrempf were making the Supersonics one of the sexy teams in the league.

For me its Eric Lindross, one of the best hockey players whose career was marked with injury after injury.



Tiger Woods...yeah I'm pretty much counting him as dead.

nah j/k give him a few months of practice and he should be good as new. But I do think his days of completely dominating the game are over.

Other people I wish could have continued longer:

Bobby Orr - Forced out of the game at 30, that really sucks. Damn knee injuries.

Mario Lemieux - Cancer costed him 3 of his prime playing years in the late 90's. Other various injuries really fucked him up as well. Only had four 75+ game seasons in his 17 or so years of play. Could have been as good (or better) than Gretzky.

Pavel Bure - Another sad case of injuries. Put up ridiculous numbers when he was healthy.

Gordie Howe - lol j/k he played till he was like 52

He was good. Too bad he got tagged by Stevens.

I never really respected Lindros though. Anyone who refuses to play for the team that drafts him and demands a trade is a bitch in my books.
