2006 SI Fortunate 50
Here are the top 10 of the Sports Illustrated Magazine's fortunate 50 list for the year 2006. This is the 3rd year that the list has been published. As with all Fortunate 50 lists, it only includes athletes from the USA, sorted by total earnings (salary, winnings, endorsements and appearance fees).
Tiger Woods is again the highest earner, as he has on the first two lists. See also the 2006 International 20 for the top paid sports people from the rest of the world.
