Woods vs. Payroll Insanity


Poll Results

Tiger Woods

Why he is on the list: Tiger had a pretty good 12 months. In no particular order: He became the first player since 1953 to win three majors in a year; he won nine PGA Tour events (the most since 1950); his scoring average was 68.17 -- 1.46 shots better than his nearest competitor; he had $9 million in official earnings -- which doesn't include his $100 million deal with Nike. Next question.

Payroll insanity

Why it is on the list: Alex Rodriguez signed a $252 million, 10-year deal with the Texas Rangers that doubled the previous richest contract in sports history. Need we say more?
