    The British sports personality of the year is coming up soon. This is basically where the general public vote for their favourite personality in sport. Footballers, cricketers, althelites, sailors, anyone who has done something great sports-wise.

    I was wondering who you'd nominate for your sports personality of the year. It doesn't have to be a british person, this is internationally. Maybe we could get a final 10, and then take a final vote to find who the CW sports personality is?

    First 24 hours voting:

    Current nominations
    Andrew Flintoff- 9 votes
    Shaun Murphy- 1 vote
    Jamie Lyon- 1 vote
    Andy Murray- 1 vote
    Tatenda Taibu- 1 vote
    Guus Hiddink- 1 vote
    Makybe Diva- 2 votes
    Jamee Gray- 1 vote

    Freddie. Next question?
    - As featured in The Independent.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

    Flintoff. By miles, and obviously he's going to win it. It isn't going to happen, but I'd like Tatenda to win the International award for what he has done recently. I suspect that either Warne or Armstrong (who deserved to win it as often as he has) will win it.

    This might just turn into a cricket player of the year thread, so i'll nominate Shaun Murphy, the snooker world champion.

    Personality? That arrogant little ***?

    No, seriously, Murphy played astonishing snooker to win, but a snooker player will never win Sports Personality. Not now.

    Just hoping to get some votes that aren't cricketers...

    On a non-cricket front I guess Andy Murray? Even Fat Frank (Lampard), who's been consistently huge for Chelski & England.

    Well, I think we've just found the oxymoron of the year!

    We may well get an "Ashes sweep"
    Or something.

    Did Shaun Murphy win the WSC? Jees, I wasn't paying attention last April...

    Er, Fred. Or failing that, Vaughaney.

    Hazza could you please change my vote to Tatenda Taibu.

    Neil, don't worry. Someone once said that being good at snooker is a sign of a mispent youth and liking watching it is a sign of wasted revision time before your exams!

    No problem

    I play loads of snooker and I find it really enjoyable, and my test results aren't too bad either!
