Declan Lynch: The world just does not care too much for true greatness

It is not Tiger Woods's or Wayne Rooney's fault that other people's priorities are all wrong, writes Declan Lynch

There used to be one or two things in this world that were decided. You wouldn't find much debate about Tiger Woods's innate superiority in the game of golf or even in the game of life.

And no-one was in any doubt that Wayne Rooney would be the best player in Britain more or less indefinitely -- it is what he does. These things were settled.

When every other blue-chip investment was going down the toilet, you could at least rely on Tiger to keep holing putts for which no other man had the stomach, and you could rely on Wazza to put Wigan and Blackburn Rovers to the sword, every time.
