Good point as Henry is a better footballer than Beckham IMO. Although they are very different and in some teams Beckham would be the better choice.
But I am not young and Beckham appeals to me because he has always worked so hard for England.
Woods and Jordan are outstanding in their sport. Beckham is not. I would argue the opposite that relative to their ability Beckham transends his sport more.
I agree with you.
However, I think we should keep in mind that the opinions in the article
are oriented to the U.S. market. Plus, Becks is (footie and marketing)
king in another crucial market: The U.K.
Another thing I don't like about that article is that, that they do not
take into account that Becks can be better than Henry for certain
teams and play styles.
Oh well, what do you expect... they are marketing people
