Ohh, Baggio comes to mind (Juve), but of course he was one of the best that night, but so was Juan Roman 2 weeks prior to his return to Argentina. I must say that YES he deserved it, but the difference between a great/awesome player or a legend or icon and a goat/okay player (in memory) is not the great scored header or the great scored freekick, it is the penalty to win ANY final or the pass to set up a slotted shot for another player to do said, but consistency is overlooked when it comes to memory. People don't remember Baggio for his talent or ability (that average fan that is) they remember him for his missed penalty.
C. Ronaldo is a great player and I would welcome him to Bayern yesterday twice, but would I do it on a CL final night? No. He shows up when it is optimal to, and when it is demanded, he is lackluster at best. Scoring 3 goals against Hull doesn't cut it against Chelsea sort of thing.
As I said, he scored over 50 goals last season, and that is sick nasty, but is the best in the world? I would hold my dick over flame before saying his name.
You were talking about Baggio and how selective our memory is, that's why i mentioned the detail that will be remembered as negative from the CL final. CR isn't part of this negative detail (the negative detail being Terry's missed penalty) so his missed penalty plays no role in ballon d'or.
Since his team won the CL final, it's his goal in that final that will be remembered more than the penalty he missed. If his team lost then his goal in the final would have been forgotten and his missed penalty would have been attached to our memory.

It was only a matter of time before the Portuguese man-o’-sex moved on to married women, and he has done exactly that with Alyona Haynes. The 23-year-old Ukrainian is married 50-year-old millionaire John Haynes, who recently had the pleasure of discovering 49 text messages from Mr Ronaldo on her phone. The cuckolded chap clearly isn’t impressed:
“They looked like they had been written by a seven-year-old . . . it was dreadful English and they mentioned Portugal. They were very coyly written.
“There were things like 'Do you miss me baby? I miss you’. I just assumed she was playing around with a waiter who had just arrived from Portugal. I had no idea it was him.”
Alyona, whose love for animals is said to rival her love for rich men, met Ronaldo in August and has been spotted out with him on at least eight dates.
(Wondering how a young Ukrainian ended up married to a 50-year-old businessman? Alyona is the face of a website that finds Russian brides for lonely British men)
