All i can say is who voted for her? and why oh why......

Not much competition this year though was there?
It was either Andy Murray or Nicole Cooke for me with Andy Murray just coming out on top.
Because she's a World and European Champion.
Should have been Joe.
Since when has a relative of the royal family had "personality"?!
In Answer to thread, NOT ME, my money was on Homer Simpson.
Interesting choice wasn't it? A low voting year I suspect, although in some respects it's nice to see one of the less mainstream sports getting reconised.
Anyway, when has it EVER been about personality?
Andy Prialux was also a world champion, and no I didn't vote for him either.
It's because shes more of a celebrity out of her sport and thats what people are obsessed with.
Nicole Cooke would have been my choice but, im into cycling so i would say that.
Phil THE POWER Taylor!
he's won more world championships than Hendry and Davis combined!
Greg Rusedski got it and won nowt - he waws runner un in a major..... big deal!
Yes, but darts?! As they say where I'm from ... catch yourself on! There's no way that's a proper sport in my opinion. Phil 'THE POWER' Taylor - ROFLMAO!
Agree with John's comments about lack of choice - it's not been a brilliant year for British success in the 'majority' sports. ZP actually won sommat so I won't begrudge her no matter how posh she is!
And I think the personality thing is a misnomer anyway - some very boring (but very talented) people have won this in the past (Mansell, Davis, Owen?).
The one choice that did rile me was the youngsters award to Theo Walcott - barely touched a ball in public since leaving Soton, but a WC call up plus a ridiculous transfer fee seems to have got him a trophy (although I don't know how this award was decided)
Quote: It's because shes more of a celebrity out of her sport and thats what people are obsessed with. Nicole Cooke would have been my choice
probably true, but knowing not a lot about either sport, they seem to have both achieved about the same this year, so personally I couldn't choose one over the other
Quote: Greg Rusedski got it
now that was based purely on personality!
Quote: Yes, but darts?!
Davis got it - Snooker?
There's a lot more walking in Darts
I'd actually argue theres more walking in snooker !!
However as already said .. Joe Calzaghe should have won it without a doubt!

Yeah, to the bar and back
Nice to see equestrian sport getting recognised for something. It's one of the few sports we actually shine at as a nation so I'm glad ZP got it, regardless of the "posh factor" or anything else the grumblers have to say.

when you get stuck on double 1 for 1/2 an hour, there's a lot of walking
Freddy got it last year, that was the main thing.
