    Roger Federer should have won it. The guy is already at the Micheal Jordan, Muhammad Ali, Pele level of mastery in his sport.

    Maybe...I'm not even 100% sure what sport he is in. Tennis, I think. The Favre story is a pretty good one this year so far. To bad how it ends...(j/k) Favre is an excellent choice.

    Plus the non-game related stories - Koren Robinson, Make a Wish, etc. Maybe Federer compares, but I doubt it.

    Yes, I do actually. It wasn't for player or athlete of the year, but sportsman of the year. More to sportsmanship than pure athletic ability or how many points you score.

    I think they are looking at the person's play on the field, their overall attitude, teamwork, love of the game and sportsmanship. How the player is respected by other opposing teams etc.. is another factor. Farve in that sense is the best sportsman I know of right now. Maybe there are plenty others in other sports who match up, but for me Farve is #1 in all those things. You should really read the article, I'm sure it explains it better than me.

    It might have been better to say Farve is Football's Sportsman of the Year. But since we all know NFL football is the #1 sport.....guess that makes him Sportsman of the year! LOL

    Go Pack Go

    Favre is the most beloved athlete in America's favorite sport. There may be better athletes out there, true. But in a sports world embarassed by almost daily revelations of steriod and performance-enhancing drug use; win-at-all-cost culture that leads to cheating and underhanded business dealings; news of young people's lives destroyed because of the outrageous amounts of money thrown at them - Favre's story deserves to be celebrated.

    He is what we want our sports icons to be: true to himself, his family, his teammates, his fans, his community.... and his sport.

    Congratulations, Brett!

    I love Roger and he is all class, but tennis has really gone backwards in North America when it comes to popularity. The sad part about that is the US Open probably had the best tennis matches in years in 2007.

    I think Brett is a great choice, if I wasn't him I would say Tiger Woods who has also done so much for his sport, and gives large amounts of his time and money to charity.

    Well, it's ok for real men to play when he hits 50.

    it's just like it's ok for a real man to start playing golf at 60.

    Don't be dissing golf. Any sport you can play with a beer in your hand and a smoke in your mouth is manly.
