Well, I know about Bohr because my son was a goalkeeper. Did you know Albert Camus was also a darn good 'keeper?

Re: NFL sportswriter names Williams as top sports siblings "ever"

I see a lot of people saying "nay" All who have good points. I guess the deciding factor is that no one was surprised by those others succeeding in the sports they did. At the time even one girl from Compton making it to the top of tennis was unexpected. Having two within a couple years and those two being siblings give the WS (in the writer's opinion) the edge.

Re: NFL sportswriter names Williams as top sports siblings "ever"

All that didn't make sense anyway because the Mannings who are true superstars I guess, probably won't even reach Venus's championship count. Or if they do then here comes Serena's stats. lol


That's the whole point of the article isn't it?

Re: NFL sportswriter names Williams as top sports siblings "ever"

Since socccer doesn't matter one bit in USA no wonder they didn't include the Charltons or none of the other siblings like Laudrups or Koemans even though soccer is the most popular sport worldwide. American football is a local sport, comparing the Mannings to the Charltons is like comparing a stray cat to a lion

Because they were #1 and #2 and faced each other in 4 consecutive finals and what....7 overall?

Doesn't matter if people forget what Venus was...the fact is she and serena dominated together for atleast 4 years together

It may be the biggest sport in USA but it's still local It's not like NBA or NHL even since there are just about a handful of foreigners playing there (and funnily enough the most famous of them is actually Polish )

The Charlton brothers are way more accomplished than the Mannings. Being a fan of both sports I can say that objectively. Hell, even the Neville brothers are ahead of the Mannings, as are the Laudrups and the Cannavaros. American Football (and Baseball and to an extent Basketball) is niche in the scope of worldwide sports.

I only responded because that sport is no cat to ANYONES lion.

I'm more of a basketball fan anyway, but even I know that as popular as basketball is, it's dwarfed in comparison here.

I think we even have a traditional football team now, don't we? So yall get a team and try your hand at ours so you'll finally understand the difference.

Good luck

Re: NFL sportswriter names Williams as top sports siblings "ever"

I've admitted football is the most popular sport in USA but pretty much irrelevant everywhere else. Rugby union on the other half is a totally different story and the real #1 among contact football sports in the world

Not really. http://www.ifaf.info/countries/federation_list

But yeah, compared to "real" football, it's a drop in the bucket.

Anyway, I assumed the writer meant top American sports siblings. One would have to be nuts to try and assess that internationally
