Am I the only one who can remember the days when you filled in a coupon from the Radio Times with your choice and posted it to the BBC? Wink I guess in those days the programme was the "Sports review of the Year" and SPoTY was just something that happened at the end.

I guess with this approach you won't get sports governing bodies, websites etc lobbying their members to vote for their preferred candidate in the weeks before the program.

WGAF?

They should make a bigger thing of these 'heroes in our community' awards than of professional sport. Or is that not conducive to getting us bristling with national pride?

It'll be Lewis Hamilton again.

Sports (well, kind of)
Personality - not so much

Popularity - undoubtedly

Mind you - cyclists have won three times in the last 10 years.

If they short list GT, don't they also have to shortlist CF and SY? Then you split the vote 3 ways.

It's just a light entertainment show with a sports theme, but I quite enjoy it, and prefer it to some jungle or singing based light entertainment.
