@Thereel: well I respect your opinion there. He actually to me looks a better 6'3" than almost all the others listed here.
TheReel said on 16/Aug/17
Rio Ferdinand is under 6'3" for sure and quite comfortably I might add as well not just by mere MM I'm talking about CM
Canson said on 15/Aug/17
I'd say no less than 6'3" Thereel but yea def not 6'4 or near it either
Junior said on 15/Aug/17
Perhaps Rob should take a look at this link. Tamer Hassan is listed 6'2 and Rio look nothing under 1.5" taller maybe 2" but Rio was slightly closer to the camera Click Here:

Proportionally he looks like a 6ft3-4 guy

no. He has the proportions of a 6'2-6'3 guy which is what he is,
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Aug/17
A tad over this, Rob?
Editor Rob: at times he can seem 6ft 3 and a little fraction.
Canson said on 13/Aug/17
He claimed 6'3". Maybe he's 6'3.25ish 6'4 out of bed
Junior said on 13/Aug/17
He maybe 6'3.5" get under listed at 6'2-6'3 range

Always looked a strong 6 ft 3.
S.J.H said on 19/Jul/17
Flat 6'3 here is impossible. I'm telling truth he look strong 6'3 like 6'3.25-3.5 in between.
Canson said on 19/Jul/17
He for sure is not sub 6'3". But debate is whether he's over the mark. He has proportions of someone in the 6'3-6'5 range which makes him appear taller than he really is
Ly said on 18/Jul/17
Rob please check the photos of him and cristiano Ronaldo and tell me if it is just 2 inches
Editor Rob: he can look a big 2 inches taller, in the past when Ronaldo was young even a bit near 3 inches...but Ronaldo I think 19-20 did get a final little bit of height.
Ronaldo said on 27/Jun/17
6ft 3.1in
Canson said on 20/Jun/17
@SJH he could be that.
James B said on 19/Jun/17
Textbook 6'3
S.J.H said on 19/Jun/17
Rio is not under 6cm taller than 6'1 Cristiano. Should get a little boost at 6'3.25
Canson said on 18/Jun/17
@Ly maybe he's strong 6'3". He looks very tall honestly. The more and more I see he never looks under 6'3
Ly said on 17/Jun/17
If he really is just 6ft3 than ronaldo has to be shorter than 6ft1 because he always looked 2-3 inches shorter than rio
Canson said on 17/Jun/17
If pique is a hair taller (he can appear it) then it makes sense. Pique may be 6'3.5-.75 is how he appears tops and Rio could be 6'2.75-6'3 like Christian said. Even if he falls within the 1/4" at his lowest evening like 6'2 7/8 I still consider that legit enough a 6'3"
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 17/Jun/17
@Ly

I didn't change anything. I said that he's not anything under 189 worst case scenario. His typical night height is no less than 190, but may dip under it if extreme lowest.

Afternoon: 6'3"
Usual low: 6'2 7/8"
Extreme low: 6'2 5/8"

Top player was Rio. He was always listed at 6'4" when we had him at West Ham.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jun/17
He'd have an easy 1in on Murray…
S.J.H said on 16/Jun/17
Worse case of the 6'2 and 6'2.5 listing it still going on on other site. Lol
Bazza said on 16/Jun/17
@christian - i have even seen him listed at 6'2 flat a few times but he is clearly taller than that.he always looked taller than other 6'2 guys. Any photos out there of Rio and Andy Murray? would be an interesting comparison.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Jun/17
Rio Ferdinand is probably one of the best examples I can think of of a proper 6'3 guy. Always looks it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jun/17
6ft2½ is definitely lowballing him…
Ly said on 16/Jun/17
@Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8)
Why you changing thoughts so quickly
Did you see pictures of him with other measured players
He is minimum 191 imo and he can look 192 with Henry,Ronaldo etc.
175 cm said on 16/Jun/17
The link didn't work. So here it is:

Ferdinand 6ft 2.5
Pique 6ft 4.25
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 16/Jun/17
I wonder why he was listed only as 189 during his career. He didn't dip under 189 for sure even in his extreme low, and his usual low is probably not under 190.
S.J.H said on 16/Jun/17
6'3-1/4 would be best fit for Rio Ferdinand. He look shaky on the 6'3 mark like he can stand at his tallest at 6'3.5 but came down at a solid 6'3.25 range, Pique i start to believe stand tall closer to 6'4 but little bit of weak 6'4 maybe only the posture of busting a gut he look clearing 6'4 in the morning. But really not full inch taller than Rio it's like 0.5 range between them. Rio had very good posture most of time but also stand loose at times. Rob should consider a 0.25 upgrade for Rio. Anyway thanks rob for adding him!

Ferdinand 191cm - lowest
Pique 192.4cm - lowest
Canson said on 15/Jun/17
He looks a legit 6'3
Koreanorigin188cm said on 15/Jun/17
6 ft 3 sounds about right with him.
175 cm said on 15/Jun/17
Looks his 6ft 2 range claim next to 6ft 4 Pique.

6'3 seem too low compare Rio with Pique. Any odds on posture and camera angle i did say at worse Rio is about 0.25 shorter than Pique is possibe but most of time they look the same height. Rio look at least 2 inch taller than 6'1.5-1.75 Thierry Henry

Gerard Pique 6'3.5-3.75
Rio Ferdinand 6'3.25-3.5

Glad to see rio gets a page.i have always thought solid 6'3 guy, seen him with people like David Haye and he is clearly taller.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jun/17
Spot on, a good example of a legit 6'3 flat guy.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 15/Jun/17
His professional 189cm listing is legitimate. I don't think he's anything under 189 worst case.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jun/17
191/192cm range.
Nick92 said on 15/Jun/17
Rob hes taller than Vernon kay who is listed 6ft4
Ly said on 15/Jun/17
He always looks more than 2 inches taller than Ronaldo
Check their pictures
He's gotta be taller than this
Borats Chicken said on 15/Jun/17
amazing player, I sorry for his lost..poor lad..
World Citizen said on 15/Jun/17
On other sites he's listed as 6 ft 2.5
ma said on 15/Jun/17
Great Rob that you decide to add more footballer !
This guy looks huge, I always think that he was very modest in his claim; but he could be around 191 cm
Rory said on 15/Jun/17
Solid 6ft3 guy. More likely a strong one than a weak one imo. I've seen him up close and he stood out as being tall.
