Influential list incomplete
Published January 3, 2011
As an avid reader of your magazine, I was very disappointed to see Scott Blackmun missing from the top 50. To me, it shows a serious degree of poor homework, and actually reduces the credibility of the list. The Olympic brand, its NGB partners, media impact, sponsor impact, and sporting greatness make the USOC clearly one of the most powerful and influential sports brands in the U.S. To have its top executive missing from the list is hard to understand.
