The requirements for GOAT should be very tough obviously. What I never can understand is why so many assume the GOAT is always playing in the present? I also assumed in any sport the GOAT is probably not playing in the present simply because the history of most sports are so long with so many players that statistically the odds are the GOAT played in the past. I've looked at the stats for many individuals in different sports and I've generally found that to be the case.
