    The 90s was loaded with stars and classic games/events. And you forgot MLB.

    The four major sports were at their peak in the 90s.

    Seeing OG list reminded me of something, why is Parcells much more revered than Joe Gibbs? Obviously as a Skins fan I know the Joe ins and out but it was before my time and I didn't see none of it live. Gibbs won more rings with a diff QB each time and holds a higher win pct.

    Personality jumped out at me first but Walsh was a mellow guy so I'm not sure. Just something I always pondered.

    You're absolutely right about Gibbs. I made that post from the top of my head. I just forgot to add him. Gibbs was a great coach and is unfairly overlooked. He won 3 rings with 3 different qb's. That's greatness. My bad

    90s
    The 90'same for me, the era I grew up watching, narrated by Stewart Scott. I remember watching sports center over and over just to hear Stewart Scott.

    Basketball: Jordan & The Bulls Dynasty, Young Shaq & Penny (Magic), Hakeem Olijuwon, Early 90's Knicks, late 90's Pacers, etc.

    Football: Deion, Jerry Rice, Barry Sanders, Reggie White, Emmitt, Michael Irving, Rod Woodson, Terrell Davis, young Randy Moss, Steve Young, 94' 49ers.

    Basketball: Im not even a big baseball fan, but these players made me pay attention to the game, alone with Stewart Scott on sports center

    Ken Griffey JR, Barry Bonds, The Big Hurt, Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, the Braves, the Mariners

    Olympics: Original Dream team, Michael Johnson, Dominique Dawes

    Boxing: Roy Jones Jr., Tyson (post prison), Lennox Lewis, Riddick Bowe, Dela Hoya, Holyfield, etc.

    90s is the one everyone here can relate to, but the 80s had ALL-TIME players in their prime in every league.
