Default GOAT?

Jack or Tiger? Don't know how to do a poll. Who ya got? For my money, it's Jack, no contest. With the news that Eldrick is going to have another back surgery it's looking more and more like his career is over so what say you?

For starters, I abhor the acronym GOAT.

Next, I think Tiger Woods is one of the most overrated players of my generation.

Tiger was on track to surpass Jack, but he fell apart. Nicklaus is still the GOAT.

Nicklaus for sure. Tiger was without a doubt on the roll and going to surpass him but i truly think he was brought down by his own self narcissm.

Tiger and Randy Moss are in the same boat to me. Both had the skill and talent to be the greatest golfer and WR of all time, but both squandered some of it. Tiger didn't treat his body the way he should and they both had off the field/course issues. Jack and Rice keep their titles as the greatest, even if the other two were probably better. Its a results based industry.

I sort of agree with this, but there are counter-examples. Michael Jordan doesn't have nearly as many titles as Russell (6 to 11) or points as Kareem (32k to 38k), but he's the closest thing to a consensus GOAT at any sport.

Even though he will almost certainly finish with less majors than Jack, Tiger had a period of dominance on a Jordan-esque level. In his first 278 starts, Tiger won 78 times -- 27.3 percent. For over a decade he won one out of every four tournaments he entered. Nicklaus won around 18% over the same period of his career (his total average ended up much lower but it's not really fair to ding him for playing way past his prime).

So it really comes to down to how much you value longevity as opposed to complete dominance. At least in basketball, people seem pretty comfortable proclaiming Jordan the best ever, despite being eclipsed in all the major benchmarks of greatness by players with longer careers (and who didn't take time off for baseball in their prime).

Hmmmm.......I agree with all of this except Montana and GSP.

Those two should be replaced with John Elway and Anderson Silva for sure.

Tiger had everything going for him, just couldn't keep it in his pants and it ruined his career. He was a golfer not a rock star, what in the world was he thinking?

Good list but id replace Marciano with Ali. No doubt Ali was the better boxer. And you have to be freaking kidding me with Bird as the goat of baskeball lol. Its Michael Jordan. Why are all those people white on the list anyways hahaha


Yes I know it was sarcasm
