Yeah it's ridicolous. If CR7 was not competing in the same era, Messi would have won around 10 ballon d'ORs in a row. Not to mention averaging a goal a game for a decade is insane. I can remember Scholes saying that the mentality and nerves that Ronaldo and Messi have to consistently be the worlds best every year is unprecedented. Not to mention all the scrutiny from the media these days. I don't think Messi is weaker mentally than Ronaldo, but Ronaldo has a different personality. Ronaldo wants to be the main man and be in the spotlight. He wants all the glory, he is obsessed with immortalizing himself while Messi is more of a team player. He doesn't talk much during games, but speaks by performing on the pitch and does what he can to contribute to the entire team. Messi can be a bit of a WUM though Although if I had to choose someone to take the decisive penalty in a final, I would pick Ronaldo over Messi, but doesn't mean I rate Ronaldo as better.
