What is wrong with the Argentine journalists core? How is the GREATEST soccer player in the world not the best athlete in his own country? I agree that Sergio Martinez is a great fighter, but the world’s 4th ranked fighter doesn’t belong ahead of Messi. I am also sure that World Judo champ Sebastian Crismanich is a bad man and all, but a Lionel Messi he is not. Lionel Messi is finishing up the single greatest year in sports and he gets treated like this. If I was Messi, I would renounce my Argentine citizenship and sell my loyalty to the highest bidder. Can you imagine Lionel Messi winning World Cups for the USA?
