    Not including the Scottish cricket team beating England is the biggest shocker not being there... A huge result in many ways, not just from a rivalry perspective.

    I used to know all the people nominated but could barely identify one or two nowadays.

    The rot set in (I tell thee) when Stephen Hendry won as I can't think of anyone as completely lacking in personality as him. So many nonentities seem to appear at these things in any case.

    Tyson Fury should get it . The way he rose from the dead was unreal . He's not PC enough to actually get the award though .

    Surely England's magnificent performance in the World Cup is worth an award itself, for such a minnow in International terms to achieve so much as they did in that tournament was fantastic. They brushed teams aside and were very unfortunate not to go further.

    Of course England will get the team award.

    Getting to the WC semi-finals is a huge achievement, regardless of the teams they faced.

    Lewis Hamilton might be a shout for the individual award.

    I can't think of any other contenders.

    Not a motor racing fan, but LH's 5th title is about the one genuinely historic sporting moment in a quiet year. I mean Tiger Woods winning a non-major ... netball ... seriously?

    Thatís a bit harsh to call him a drugs cheat. The guy was using recreational drugs and was going through a complete meltdown in his life. He certainly wasnít using performance enhancing drugs.

    United we stand here....

    He tested positive for the steroid nandrolone. He sort of got away with it because the UK anti-doping agency didn't follow process. The performance enhancing effects of steroids last for years.

    By being not PC enough do you mean sexist, homophobic, recreational drug addict, and performance enhancing drug cheat? Yip, that sounds like the guy who should be sports personality of the year!

    Baffles me why every year people think its got anything to do with the person's actual personality 😂.

    It was originally set up by the editor of Sportsview magazine. Its original aim was to find the person that had featured in the magazine the past year, "that was judged by the public to have achieved the most that year" . Now the main awards remit is awarded to the sportsperson "whose actions have most captured the public's imagination"

    Do they actually think there would be an award based on personalty, Jimmy bullard beats Andy Murray the year of Wimbledon

    I see that it's on tonight. They've not announced who's been selected for voting. All will be announced during tonight's show.

    Don't think anyone believes it's got anything to do with personality now. It's much more about achievement rather than the individual's personality.
