Forbes: 10 Most Influential Athletes

E-Poll and Nielsen Media Research surveyed over 1,000 adults as to the athletes they considered influential, while also assessing their likeability and awareness levels. Only those known to at least 20% of the respondents were considered. No one from Dancing With The Stars made the list.

The top 10 are as follows:

1) Jimmie Johnson

2) Tom Brady

3) Dale Earnhardt Jr.

4) Shaq

5) Michael Phelps

6) Troy Polamalu

7) Peyton Manning

8) Jeff Gordon

9) LeBron James

10) Tim Tebow

Fascinating list. Some names are a surprise, including King James and Tebow. Lots of race car drivers too.
