Oh wait there aren't any, especially when someone shorter than my mom is the best.in theworld at the sport .Lolol
Barry Sanders was 5 foot 8. So your whole "short guys aren't real athletes" theory has just been shot to hell for that contradiction.

Yea that's exactly what I said... that's exactly why I was using nate Robinson, 5'8" 180 lbs as an example of a REAL athlete with freak abilities (45 inch.vertical leap for instance) vs.messi, who is built like a 12 year old yet somehow is the best.soccer player in the world lolol
Barry sanders was a beast of an athlete. No soccer player can be.compared to a real athlete

It could be that, or it could be that I am right, thus no counter evidence being provided.
Again, the BEST soccer player in the entire world:



best basketball player (arguably):



both are "equally" as athletic right? lol

now lets look at nate robinson and barry sanders, since both were short like "messi"

nate robinson:
5'8, 180, 40-45 inch vertical leap, 300lbs bench press


barry sanders:
5'8, 202 lbs, 40 time of 4.37 seconds, vertical leap allegedly over 45 inches.

messi = 5'6, 150 lbs, long hair, dives a lot, can't score a goal in the world cup

Who cares? It is 2 completely different sports. This Robinson dude (I've never heard of this guy in my life) could only dream of having the abilities that Messi has on the pitch.

Linemen are taller and heavier than cornerbacks, but are they better athletes?

Lol @ how silent all the soccer fans are.... Google "messi" and all ull see is pics of him running around.
That's proof if his awesome athleticism right?

Google and YouTube at ur fingertips and not ONE shred of evidence showing one iota of athleticism in "messi" or any other soccer player hahahhhaha

Nate Robinson is a million times the athlete midget Messi is. His vertical leap, strength and quickess are proof

It's ok to be upset @ being unable to find ONE video or picture demonstrating "athleticism" in soccer.

Have you maybe thought that we have no interest in feeding a troll?

If you cant find some decent pics or video of Messi displaying athletic ability then you dont know your way around the internet very well.

Why do you keep gauging athleticism like this is the NFL combine? Nate Robinson plays for ~24 minutes a game, not 90+. He can afford to lug around extra body mass.
