    I would've voted for Calzaghe.
    Or something.

    Pfft Zara Phillips, crikey.. Just shows what a dire year British sport has had.. The worst English rugby team in history, a cricket team losing their Ashes and their marbles, an obnoxious tennis player who's known more for his hairstyle and his temper than his tennis, and a football world cup campaign that should have been put out of its misery before it had even started.

    I'd have gone for the boxers, at least they've done something positive..

    today?

    Yeah, I guess thinking about it "Personality" doesn't necessarily mean "Performer" - Although as nice as Prince William is and Diana was, since when has a member of the Royal Family ever been allowed to have a personality?

    They either need to change the name to Sports Performer of the Year, or actually base it on personality. If it was purely on personality, Monty should have won hands down imo.

    Pretty good list this year, I don't think I'd have any problems with any of them winning. If I was going to go for one, I'd probbaly go for Cavendish on the basis of he has basically proved himself best in the world by a long, long way in his particular field, in a particular sport where British people have traditionaly not done very well and that fact that he actually has some personality.

    Surprised Brad Wiggins didn't get nominated, after he finished 4th in the Tour, and he does have personality (or maybe that his old man was Australian, a piss head and changed wives quicker then a NZ batting order collapse). But yeah Cav has personality, he is correct in what he says, but he is pretty bloody arrogant. Won 23 races this season. And then there is his GF, Fiorella Migilore, from Paraguay:

    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    I doubt he'll take it, though.

    Giggs certainly shouldn't take the thing. Should be Strauss, Ennis, Haye & Button the favourites I reckon

    Normally a British F1 champion takes the award, but because Button is wrongly accused of not deserving it, doubt it'll be him.
    Cavendish is the most deserving, but it's not a mainstream sport.
    Not entirely sure what Giggs did last year that he hasn't done before.
    Strauss, meh, best of a pretty poor series.
    Athletics, meh.

    Had no idea that Murray or Strauss had personalities to be honest

    If it's based on personality Tom Daley will come last. From what I've heard he's a complete ****.

    What about the other awards? Always enjoy the lifetime achievment award, plus I think the england cricket team have a good chance of taking best team.
