A Ronaldo 'Tribute' thread was started in the Brazil forum following his ommission from Dunga's world cup squad. However most of the posts have actually been about whether he was better than Romario. The majority of posters (roughly 80% I think) chose Romario, which surprised me as I was expecting it to be closer to 50/50. I wonder if one of the reasons for the anti-Ronaldo sentiment is residual bitterness due to his implosion before the 98 world cup final, and for turning up to the 2006 tournament overweight and stinking up the joint. Therefore I'm very curious as to how non-Brazilians (ie people who aren't hardcore Brazil NT supporters) rate both players for their overall performances. My own opinion's that they were pretty much as effective as each other, albeit with different styles (Romario = finesse, Ronaldo = power). I think Ronaldo was slightly better in his prime so my vote's with him. However Romario certainly had a more productive career, mainly due to the years Ronaldo missed with injury.
