What I most hate about the award is that it's done by calendar year which is ******* stupid. Do it season by season. It's really stupid.
Can't interfere with holiday time or internationals these days it seems......

Agree though

You're giving out the award to someone who has had an excellent end to a season and an excellent start to a season. It's really bizarre.

Yea I don't think you'll see anyone winning that award for scoring goals in Germany any time soon.

You really are deluded

Germanys best has shown they are better than Spains best many times over the past 3 years yet get no recognition because they don't have "names" even though they smash the goals in like their La Liga counterparts.

The award has zero credibility if the same two keep winning year in year out when stats show others have been equally as influential

I'm deluded because I think Messi and Ronaldo are the best players in the world, lol ok Bigfooty

Even if you go past those 2 the 3rd best would be playing in Spain as well. Don't see anyone outside Spain making the top 3 any time soon. Have a cry though

I really fail to see how Messi & Ronaldo aren't richly deserving of being recognised as the top two players in the world, year in, year out. Stats aren't everything but their numbers blow everyone else's away, Suarez is the only one that's close to them.

Pretty much. Not sure what go you pups is arguing. Messi and Ronaldo are quite clearly the best two players in the world and have been for a long time, hence always finishing 1 and 2 in the Ballon D'Or.

This is very old post, but after the todays hat trick of Cristiano, I think that Cristiano and Messi will do great things also this year in Champions League.But there is a big difference between them. Messi is scoring free kicks and Ronaldo cannot score a goal from a free kick! This is the last free kick goal from Cristiano and he scored it when it was still to Real Madrid. Will he ever score a goal from a free kick again?

This one has been settled. back in 2012 or so Messi had a little form patch but it turned out to be a flash in the pan. Since then Cr7 won all the awards and dominated Eu for such an extended period of time everyone forgot about the comparisons.

Messi has won more Ballon D'ors, more European Golden Shoes and more trophies. And is younger.
And they both score as many goals per season that would be on par with an AFL full forward. Amazing stuff.
