    I never would have guessed that Mickelson comes in @ #2.

    NFL guys:

    #5 Carson Palmer
    #10 Ron Mexico
    #11 Tom Brady
    #18 Peyton Manning
    #31 Brett Favre
    #44 Edgerrin James

    I cannot beleive Palmer is the highest paid NFL Player. Not saying he doesn't deserve it (he's the best QB in the league right now, imo), but still surprising. Two Yankees in the top ten, not surprising :roll: How many errors does A-Rod have now?
    PM me if you'd like a sig.

    Well thank God for that.. I was about to lambast that article for being flat-out wrong.

    But then Michael Schumacher is at the top of the International with $80 million. $25 million of which comes from Ferrari.

    Does that really surprise you? Tiger is on pace to be the first ever BILLION dollar sportsman.

    Good luck to him, I say.

    He's had a few great years on tour in a row, so he's certainly earned a lot there but his selling power is tremendous.

    He's got that regular Joe attitude/swagger/body and there are a lot of guys out there that worship him. Tiger sells because he's very popular with the younger crowd, is good looking and is the best player in the game. Phil sells because he's Tiger's nemesis and is the alternative for the 40-something average golfer that dislikes Tiger and identifies with hitting the ball off of various objects on the 18th hole before finally making double bogey.
