25 Toughest Guys in America

Check out the list at http://www.mensjournal.com/feature/0403/toughguys.html

Tyler Hamilton is #12, and Lance isn't even on the list. Mel Gibson somehow beat out Tyler. I officially call BS on this list.

It's Men's Journal. It's all about image... not substance. What did you expect?

I think the list is semi resonable. Mel for example while taping Braveheart went thorugh quite a bit of pain as he did in the first two Mad Max films. Much more than Tyler did while riding his bike with a broken bone.
I say this largely because my right ankle has been broken now for about 20 years and I still ride. I also ride with torn lumbar muscles and torn lateralus dorsi muscles. Not to mention other things. I am not however tryong to blow a horn.
I did however applaud the nominaton of Scott Stevens. I have mentioned his name here in other threads a few times as one of the toughest men I know.

Brett Favre? Thats got to be a joke. I like to know were Aron Ralston is he cut his own arm off. After being trapped for five days. He should be first on list.

Can you elaborate on what Mel went through?

Brett Favre is one tough MFer.

I may cut my arm off to get loose from a situation. I am in no way a tough guy though. It's a survival instinct, that's all.

Well in the beginning of his movie playing, he did his own stunts. In Mad Max he got hurt several times doing stunts. He got hurt and cut up in some of the Lethal Weapon movies, bruised his groing real bad and was cut up and brusied doing fight scenes in Braveheart. Yet he never stopped he just kept on filming.
However Jackie Chan should get some respect here but he lives in Austrailia.

You might be right. Aron Ralston would have loved a whirlpool bath day after day! When he was trapped for five days under a Boulder with little water and food!

Ignoring the fact that he doesn't live in America, Jackie Chan makes most, if not all, of the guys on that list look like Martha Stewart.

With a few exceptions, I think they left one key word out of the article title. I believe it should read, "The 25 Toughest Looking Guys in America".

I will be the first to give kudos to the Aussie's as real tough guys, but I didn't know they had "groing's" and got all "brusied" up. Must be an Australian thing.

I maybe wrong, but somewhere I read that Mel was just about beaten into a coma at one point of his life.
Regardless, the list is somewhat accurate, and don't forget we are talking about people in the US where bicyclists get almost zero respect. We'll see if the new IMAX Tyler movie changes this at all.

Cheers
