Goat gags encouraged.
Was thinking before that in five year’s time all of the following will be retired…
Are we just living in an age where we overrate stuff because it’s visible and relevant, or have we been incredibly lucky to be around for a peak era of sport?
Which other current sportspeople could realistically be considered the very best their trade has offered? Do you disagree with any of the above?
I think there are arguments that other eras have been as strong in terms of natural talent, but obviously huge progress in sports science, diet, lifestyle means every generation probably has advantages over the one before.
Does it just depend on the sport? Would anyone say the current decade’s peak in, say, rugby union, cricket, F1. Does it just depend what you like - physical prowess or narrative based around personalities, etc?
