    At the Inukshuk Foundation our goal is to fill in the gaps in community services and programs across Canada to help at risk youth complete their education.

    Since reinstating our charity status in 2009 we've been hard at work to get our first initiative off the ground: creating Inukshuk Fields in Scarborough, Ontario. With your donations we can make our first project a solid success.

  2. What a stupid index. Tomasson has been poor and Cannavaro has been awful.

  3. IMO, you have to keep this list in context. Making the 33+ top ten list doesn't necessarily mean the player was that great because none of these 'old' players have been 'top' players at the WC.

    For instance, Tomasson was only ranked the 26th best forward at the WC and Cannavaro was only the 44th best defender yet they make the top ten of the Old Guy list. I personally think that is a decent ranking of their performance.

    For the record, I agree that they were both poor compared to their usual standards but that doesn't mean they weren't amongst the better old players.

  5. I don't really put much stock in that index...especially if they are affiliated with ESPN...
