2008 SI Fortunate 50
Here are the top 10 of the Sports Illustrated Magazine's fortunate 50 list for the year 2008. This is the 5th 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 is again the highest earner, as he has on every SI Fortunate 50 list since it was first published in 2004. See also the 2008 International 20 for the top paid sports people from the rest of the world.
