    Pele by every measure! If Maradona were better, most people would have forgotten Pele by now. In those times that Pele played, there was a real chance that players got crippled by vicious fouls yet Pele still sailed through those and became a role model for decades.

    Pele. He didn't use his hands to score goals. Pele loved the game, and he made the game incredible. He is somewhat like what Rhonaldinho does today. He makes people watch him play, just because he is that good. Pele did the same. A true legend.
