Al Colmenero, Plymouth, Minn.
If you want to talk about who yields the most power in sports, you have to include fans in that discussion, who, as a group, control the economics of sports. Fans choose which athletic events they will attend, which merchandise they will buy, and which athletes and teams they will root for. If not for the fans, none of the people on your list would have any power to flex.
