If Jamie Vardy were to win the British public should never be allowed to vote on anything again, ever. 

I don't think he's a bad shout, to be honest, as one of the storngest performers in perhaps the greatest tale of the underdog in the nation's favourite sport.

I'm still none the wiser what this award is for, is it personality or achievement? Is it a average of the 2?

Amazed after all this time the BBC haven't just changed the name....suppose there's just too much history with the title.

Anyway well deserved for Murray....would've been better TV though if they'd asked one of the scantily clad sunbathers behind Murray to present him the trophy. :D

You know how some words are abbreviated forms of other words? Like how 'advert' is short for 'advertisement'? Well, this is kind of the opposite, and 'personality' is a pointless lengthening of the word 'person'.

Shame on the voters for Mo Farah not getting in the top 3. What more has he got to do.

The concern with Mo Farah is that whatever you award him just increases what he has to give back later :ph34r:

Tennis is not without that problem as well.

Did Mo not get in the top 3 in 2012?

Was really surprised neither of the Kennys were in the top 3.

Yes but he is without doubt our greatest ever track and field athlete. Nobody has done what he has done! This was his last chance. Not saying Murray didn't deserve it this year but last year he won it yet didn't win a slam. Just such a shame that Mo isn't recognised by the British public.

Farah's achievements will never ever be done again.

No indeed. But if you asked me to stake my reputation on one of them, well . . . it wouldn't be Mo Farah, that's for **** sure. 

No I'd stick with the guy that voted for Scotland's independence.
