Never mind about Richard and Smith, i searched for it.
But still want to know about the free agency thing.

The guy who BROUGHT ON free agency... He challenged club exclusivity to a player's rights... CURT FLOOD!
He does NOT get my vote- HELPING DRIVE UP TICKET PRICES? HELPING THE YANKEES?
Our most IMPORTANT athlete IMO would be Byron "Whizzer" White- who can tell me why?

Ok, Hint: He broke 2 barriers... and did things in his day that effect EVERY ONE of us EVERY DAY, like it or not!

Oh, crud- actually, upon further review, a man who stood up to Hitler and changed the opinions of Nazi athletes in their own nation... Berlin... 1936... JESSE OWENS... That's a HUGE HANDS DOWN- and BEFORE Jackie by over a dozen years!

My pick is Joe Louis. He changed all sports! I think Lance is a joke! Sure he came back from cancer, but his spot sucks! Havent rode a bike since I was 7! And I love how the public embraces him, even though every one knows he was on roids, and Barry Bonds is the devil?!? Thats funny to me~!
