Disappointing not to see Ben Watson in there after providing one of the most memorable bits of FA Cup history since the crazy gang waltzed off with the cup!  :ph34r:

Murray will win by a country mile.  At least he's British - for the moment!

To be fair, it probably would go to the RU Lions even on a public vote.  As it's journos voting for what they 'know' though it's definitely going to be the Lions.

It doesn't matter who wins it, the golfists will be furious.

Which is odd, considering golf is a pastime not a sport.

How Tai Woffinden missed out on being nominated is a mystery, our first speedway world champion for 13 years. He started the World Championship GP series as the rank 200/1 outsider and proceeded to not only win it but win it by some margin despite having to ride 2 meetings with a badly broken collarbone.

They should brighten golf up by installing hazards on the greens.

 

Things like a small windmill, where one has to hit the ball through the rotating blades. A giant walnut whip were the ball has to be hit up  until it falls down the middle, and every 18th hole should have a clown's mouth opening and closing to finish the round.

How do you get a good broken collarbone?

Is he the young lad from Scunny?

I'd love to see Sam Burgess win it one year, he really is the supreme example of a rugby footballer, but as long as he plays RL he's no chance.  When I was a kid and a Neil Fox worshipper I could never understand why the likes of RGD (Dickie) Jeeps was nominated but Neil wasn't, there was no comparison, Neil was the complete footballer.  It was a case of "when I was a child I spake as a child etc"

To be honest, a sportsman has to win an international trophy to be considered. That probably means beating the Kangaroos. And, if we did that, we'd get shortlisted for the team award, rather than one player winning the individual prize.

Have to say how proud and emotional I was seeing my friends Sara and Michael picking up the Helen Rowlenson award on behalf of their mum Ann.

I had hoped for Steve Prescott to win but the award to Ann Williams was very special and totally deserved.

I got seriously p-eed off about SPOTY this year, every time I turned it over I was seeing a Union winner, or a Union blast. Warren Gatlend Coach of the Year? Really? GB & I RU, Team of the year, just because they won a test in Australia? and Wales Union's Halfpenny 2nd in the overall SPOTY?
