Hold ON!!!  Is Stephen Ames even a Trinbagonian anymore?  I could have sworn I see the Canadian flag flyin after he win The Player's Championship!

Has he given up his Trini citizenship so he would not have Visa problems when entering the various tournaments in the US?

at the end of the day...dis is crap, cuz it doh ONLY matter how much money yuh make...is how much yuh spend. So men only looking at half the equation.

Plus...I feel big dawg getting kix off Yorke in the Malta Carib ad...athelithe?

By richest, I think he just means highest paid.......we don't know what they do with their money, so that is beyond us....

easy on Big Dawg man.........typo or not, give him a bligh

My guess is Dwight Yorke followed closely by Carlos sexy Baynes, Jimmy Farmer Joseph, Derick cornbread james and Patrick KK Joseph....



Cornbread have real CREAM especially after he get catch in the airport with all that big cocaine.

 :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
allyuh men classic yes. Stop shittin on the poorman.
In terms of comparing lara and yorke.
Dwight had a ferrari when lara had a benz.
Dat like comparing a Sunny to a skateboard man.
None a dem have anything on Tendulkar though
I feel he blow out all a dem
Tiger woods is the biggest of all athletes though

Here is the list. Our boys not on it
http://www.forbes.com/2004/06/23/04athletesland.html

This is from '04 though


 :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: Somebody.. this this fella that Tiger Woods and Trndulkar is NOT from T and T.. understand the concept ah the question :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

Go back to school, take an english class and then start commenting on my comprehension.
Nothing pisses me off more than racism, and ppl who you know that act like they don't know you.

With Stephen Ames winning almost 1.5 million US over the weekend. It brings an interesting question.

Who is the richest athlete in the twin island republic? Who has generated the most income in their respective carrers

LOL I would guess Yorke, but is real chupidness talkin in here on this subject. Somebody say in my "carrier" it was all downhill after 1997. Right, funny... name the last man to lead the world at 100 and 200m in the same year, now name the year....nonsense.  Which was the last year TnT bring home multiple medals from an Olympics?  Who was it ?  More nonsense - that was way after 1997.  But message boards are places for truth to come to light.  I say Dwight simply because more money in football than in cricket and track combined. Someone made a good point though.  It's not how much u made its how much u kept.  LOL I am sure Lara ent throwing Carnival party and I ent selling DVDs to make ends meet.

Here is the trap that "non-rich" people fall into all the time in judging who has $....watching house, car and that kind of stuff....the richest people I know doh scream it.  I used to in mih day cuz I was young and dumb, but trust me that is not ever a sure sign.  It might be Ames and no one would ever guess, cuz more money in golf than most sports.  I am proud to say that because of all the Trini athletes brought up, all have one thing in common - longevity.  But then any woman could tell u Trini men does go for a lonnng time.  :applause:  Girlwarrior, ladywarrior, whey all yuh?

P.S. If my movie deal gets done, this argument done.  Shhhh. :o

Mr. Boldon. I will not comment on the "longevity" you allude too. However I will wish all Trini athletes continued success. I don't care who is making the most money as long as they are keeping enough so I never see them broke. They are all our young Heros and hopefully somewhere along the way, they secured the future for themselves!

These days, I trying to read and not post..too many silly topics.  Anyay, this topic is one of the worst i have seen.  Is true that this forum is an opportunity to express one's opinion but at the end of the day some of the questions ppl ask, there is no way to know for sure what the correct answer is.....i.e. this topic.

this topic does not make sense for 3 reasons....
1) who cares ( i could understand this as a rumshop topic..when man drunk or smoke they talk about all kinda stuff).
2) there is no way to know the answer to this question unless yorke, ames, lara, and ato tell us their net worth (that aint go happen..tinidad have a better chance of winning the WC than that happening)
3) simply looking at how much money someone makes cannot determine who is the richest...as a forumite quite rightly said...it is not who make the most but who kept the most.

I am surprised Ato responded to this topic but i guess he got tired of the $hit posts.

Just my humble opinion.

I understand your point of view...it is definitely thought provoking but my reason for my comment is that i am a very analytical person.  I operate based on facts and figures...true there is information on these guys income, endorsements but on the other hand there is no way for us to know hom much money they have spent on stuff that cannot be classified as an asset.  We don't know how much liabilities they have.  While it is possible and it appears that Yorke earned the most, it is also possible that Ames is the richest.

Just my humble opinion.

But you could have fixed that if you went to the Commonwealth Games (on a one off sponsorship stunt thing).  Because that had the be the slowest set of 100 meters sprinters I have ever seen in my life!  You could have run a 10.53 and still win and make as set of money.

Anyway... enough chipid talk for me. ;D

Yes I will give to Yorke, he was caught on the M50 in a Ferarri Modena, and he does have a mansion. but his career is almost over and Ames still have the senior PGA tour to look forward to and he has a restaurant.

I was reading the newspaper after Ames won, and they said he may never make it to the Senior PGA tour so that is very unlikely. Remember Yorke got paid in lbs, all the others  recieved U.S. with the exception of when Ato races in Europe, and when Lara plays in England. Even if Frankie Boodram had 10 million TT$ he still cannot get in there.

As the starter of this topic let me just clear up some issues:

Thanks to the "Yuteman" for the apology. You seem to have a lot of common sence and I hope you put it to good use in the future and stop cussing men on the panel.

Thanks to Ato for giving his sentiments and opinions. I know it was not easy to post on an “iffy” topic like this that included your name jumping up all the time.

And to the haters who said that this is the worst topic they ever saw on this website
