    Warne joins England in race for the comeback of 2004

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
    RIP Craigos

    i hope they don't give it to warne he is banned for taking drugs and he is allowed toplay again with in a year and does well and it is treated as a come back

    i hope they do give it to the Italian Alessandro Zanardi, who returned to motor racing after losing both legs in a crash.

    England has some chance but with zanardi there i dont think they are going to get it

    Sorry to say something quite irrelevant, but why the hell did BaggyGreen/Cricinfo choose that picture of Shane Warne to attach of the article. Holy crap, the 'picture attacher guy' ( ) must have found that pic and had a big laugh.

    Warne was probably nominated for his comeback against all the petty jealousy and back stabbing he has endured.

    Crime against humanity if Alessandro doesn't get it.
    Truly a beacon of remarkability, his case.

    Considering what he came back from he has no right winning it. Severe case of double standards if ever there was one - no one else would even have been considered for the award if they had been coming back from a drugs ban.

    Warne appears to have gained his place by virtue of reputation. The fact he was returning from a drug ban should have been taken into consideration, but Warne is one of those characters whose flaws and misdemeanours are constantly brushed aside or ignored.

    Should check before declaring double standards Zebra, Marion Jones is also nominated, now I wonder why she had a break from sport.

    Alcohol is a drug, Daly abused that drug to the point where he could no longer compete. And I dont just mean from playing.

    Yeah true but i thought you meant illegal drugs, though they are both just as harmless. I think i remember seeing how john actually still drinks, he finds it better than t total, which he cannot seem to cope with.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but playing drunk is illegal in professioal golf.

    Also diuretics are not illegal drugs.

    He doesn't drink on the course, and i doubt that is a rule, so long as you can conduct yourself properly, which probably isn't the case when drunk. And i never said diuretics were illegal drugs.

    Playing any professional sport under the influence of alchol is illegal. And I never said you said diuretics were illegal if you were infering I said you said diuretics were illegal.
