On the topic of Alpha males, TB in the opinion of many may be the greatest living American. This of course excludes the many people who meaningful impacts on humanity. Thoughts?

Ditka > everyone

Also, I am pretty sure that Tom Brady's wife is worth more than him. That isn't alpha.

Supposedly Gisele Bundchen is worth $270M & Tom Brady about $120M. Last year she made $45M in earnings compared to Brady's $30M. That's some serious $ for an athlete and model couple.

Google their Cali house... would make HF managers jealous.

There is no topic about Alpha Males, let it die.

Leave it to the finance industry, the least deserving of this title, to consistently make this ridiculous 'Alpha Male' idea a talking point.

When was the last time you heard a firefighter, navy seal or lumberjack talk refer to themselves as being an alpha male? If you're going on alpha alone your example is trumped by Bill Belichick.

How can TB be the pinnacle of alpha if he takes orders from Belichick?

At least Jeter is an alpha in training as he will inevitably coach The Yankees, a group of 'alpha males,' to at least seven hundred world series victories.

@mb666, oh I know - it was meant to kind of be a joke as to how absolutely filthy rich they are, but she slightly edges him out.

If that is your checklist, then I think that Tiger Woods has Brady beat.

He is worth more (or was before the divorce, but I am willing to bet he is still worth more)

Went to a better school, is on the extreme spectrum of both hated and loved, has more accomplishments in his sport (which relies solely on his abilities, not a team) and has apparently banged a healthy percentage of the female population.

Yeah, tiger woods is so alpha it's ridiculous. The guy marries a blonde swedish bombshell but continues to get poon on the side from countless women. Completely dominated golf for more than a decade.

Aug 8, 2013

He's just burst on the scene and has a lot to prove but Johnny Freaking Football has gotta be on that list IMHO if for no other reason than this: http://www.thesportsbank.net/core/wp-content/uploa...

Except Tiger Woods plays golf, which is a beta sport. Actually, it's a hobby made into a "sport" by advertisers.

Still lost to Flacco. Pats suck.

No.

Spygate Curse.

Jeter has bedded and continues to bed some of Earth's finest women. Knicks courtside with Miss Univers, Mariah before she beefed up. The list is endless and he did it all while shunning the spotlight and winning award after award.

Maybe it's just because I've been a Texans season ticket holder since the beginning, but I'd take JJ Watt as a better American over Tom Brady any day of the week, and twice on Sundays

I would agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Aug 8, 2013

100% yes.
This is what Toms Brady's day looks like.

1)Tom wakes up every morning next to his smoking hot wife who is inevitably soar from the good dicking she got the night before by Toms foot long john.
2)He then proceeds to the bathroom, looks in the mirror and reaffirms himself of his overall greatness over humanity
3)Motivated and confident by his mirror affirmation, he then proceeds to his Hopper which is probably made out of platnum, and proceeds to shit nothing but pure gold.
4)After aleviating this golden burden while reading the newspaper section which is riddled with articles about his previously mentioned greatness above humanity, he then begins to wipe his ass with crisp clean $100 bills (only 2 wipes...yea...cuz hes that good)
5)After prepping for his day he hops into his Rolls Royce, or w/e he feels like driving on a thursday and starts to head to Foxborow
6)While en route, he makes his daily call to hernedez and sings in perfect tune "lullaby" by Shawn Mullins to let him know that everything is going to be alright just because he had the pleasure of slapping Toms ass at some point while playing.
7)After his long hard day of throwing nothing but perfect spirals and embarrasing the defensive line in practice, he makes his way back to his Phantom and proceeds to the nearest orphanage to give the little guys/gals something to look up to in life.
8)He then returns back to his castle that both Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark are understandably jealous of and plays with his kids knowing the whole time that they will probably end up taking over the world because of the genetics that he and his stunning wife have graced them with.
9)After putting the kids to bed he kicks his feet up and watches a little sports center, once again confirming his overall studdlyness.
10)After all this he walks up to his Master sweet which is roughly the size of Gilette, only to see Giselle lying there anxiously awaiting Toms foot long John to enter her once more.

You are an inspiration to us all Tom...keep up the excellent work!

Show me a hot chick and somewhere out there I'll show you a guy who's sick of fucking her. Jeter FTW.

When I think of Tom Brady, I think of Aaron Hernandez. When you think of Aaron Hernandez, you think greatest living American. Hernandez, my friends, is a true patriot.

Nearly 12 years have passed since King Brady took the throne.

On September 12th history will repeat itself.

All hope will be lost.

All faith will be broken.

A new hero will rise.

A new era of the Patriots Dynasty will begin.

I new legend will ascend.

I can't take anybody's opinion in this thread seriously until I hear from Brady4MVP.

or is Brady4MVP is the greatest American alive??????

There is not one man in America who can honestly say they would not want to be Brady for at least a little.... except for maybe Obama.

How has anyone not mentioned Bill FUCKING Clinton yet? Let's go through the list.

1. Born into humble roots in Arkansas; biological dad dies when he's a kid. Stepdad was an alcoholic who abused his mom.

2. Goes to Georgetown as a southern baptist in a school full of rich east coast catholics and utterly dominates. Elected class president freshman year, slept with tons of girls and did great academically.

3. Wins a Rhodes Scholarship.

4. Breezes through Yale Law, where his classmates were in awe of his talents.

5. Elected attorney general of Arkansas at age 30, governor at 32. Loses re-election at 34 but comes back to win at 36. Serves as governor for 10 more years after that.

6. Was at the forefront of the Democratic Party's move towars the center through is involvement with the DLC.

7. BOMBED the 1988 democratic conventio keynote speech; goes on the Johnny Carson show to play the sax and make fun of himself.

8. Wins the 1992 election over an incumbent president despite a sex scandal and a draft dodging scandal.

9. Loses Congress in 1994 but wins a crushing re-election in 1996.

10. Balanced budget, welfare reform, crime bill, deficit reduction, peace and prosperity.

11. Gets impeached by jealous republicans because he lied about getting his dick sucked but approval ratings actually go up. His party actually picks up seats in the 1998 mideterm election.

12. Leaves office with a 65% approval rating.

13. Continues to be a major player on the world stage. Is revered almost everywhere he goes.

Only downside is he is married to arguably the ugliest woman on the face of the planet. And that's BEFORE you bring her disgusting brand of politics into the mix.

This is all pretty much true with a few caveats. Clinton loses in 1992 if not for Ross Perot--his name would have faded into history. "Balanced budget, welfare reform, crime bill, deficit reduction" were basically all done with Clinton kicking and screaming. Welfare reform, for example, was a Republican House policy idea that was so popular that Clinton had no choice but to sign on. "Peace and prosperity"--I mean, the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 and the internet boom with the help of sugar rushed Federal Reserve policy and a new vital mortgage market backed up by new technology and new financial derivatives pretty much drove everything. I could have been President at the age of 8 years and I would have experienced peace and prosperity, too, between 1991 and 2001.

Other than that, yep.

Aug 9, 2013

Glad you could keep politics out of this discussion.

Aug 12, 2013

I disagree with the first claim. Exit polls showed that Perot took about an equal number of voters away from Clinton as he did from Bush. Remember that Perot appealed to both fiscal conservatives who usually vote gop and socially liberal types who usually vote dem. For instance, Perot did extremely well in New England and the Rocky Mountain states while he did very poorly in the deep south. The election would have been closer if Perot did not run. Most likely Clinton would have lost Nevada and Colorado and maybe a few other states, but he still would've won with well over 300 electoral votes.

TB can't be the greatest. University of Michigan isn't even a target school.

I say the award goes to Bill Bradley. Princeton grad, Olympic Gold Medalist, Rhodes Scholar, NBA Champion and Hall of Famer, US Senator. Preftige for days, fellas.
