Lawrence Taylor on the other side of the ball, surely; here, no one at his position dominated like this RB did.

Life's to live! Live! Breathe. Relax. Enjoy. Animals teach us to focus on family, friends and avoid danger. Get what you need and get along with others. That said, some rock the boat, but they know capsizin' it means they're sunk. Some sink, let's swim! The sea's big, great, but has undercurrents.

Less championships than Roy but more individual trophies, and very must deserved.

Undefeated Floyd Mayweather: https://youtu.be/jxXhcI_yMtg

He owned his weight class his whole career.

If he had been a heavyweight, he'd be a household name.

dominic hasek ruined goaltending for me.  the lay down and stack the pads made every game so utterly boring.  It didnt have any of the flair of Patrick Roy. and dont even get me started on Brodeur.  Patrick Roy is among the greatest goalies ever. Up there with Sawchuck IMO

In my area, I currently dominate everyone at my school in basketball (despite never having played until coming to Korea). I also dominate in dodgeball after the last game everyone just gave up and wouldn't play me anymore because I was too good and they couldn't withstand the speed and power of my throws.

How about Manny Pacquiao who won 12 titles in 8 weight divisions in boxing? Pretty impressive. Clear contender for this title.

It's the only way they'll learn. The people here are too soft and the parents coddle them. This wouldn't have been a problem back in the old days.

Unfortunately Korea is absorbing too much Western social justice warrior values. Yes, they stopped some of the dumb macho stuff you'd see here in 2008 is gone and the corporal punishment, but at a cost of their soul. China hasn't lost its way though.
