Andy Murray deserved to win.  Just go back a few months and remember the excitement when he won Wimbledon.  And why we were so pleased about it.  It doesn't matter if he is a little boring....it's about sporting achievement.  If he didn't win this time he never would

Sorry if i've offended anybody about 'personality', but did say it was a bad joke. Just a play on words. I apologize for  my sense of humour

I don't want Abby to win Strictly. Got up my nose when they stated she was a "television presenter"...is that another occupation for a woman who married a rich slightly not good looking man?  Granted she can dance and has done very, very well, but I thought that celebrities were asked to appear on the show.

That's me with a bee in my bonnet. Off to lay in a dark room

Oooooooo KEF.    You'll feel better now

Lily, no offence taken by me or anyone else Gal!

Maybe they should call it Sports Person of the year as that encompasses sporting achievement without refernce to a trait such as personality.

As for Abby - I don't care who she's married to or what she does to earn a  crust although being a model is no less valuable to society than being an actress - probably more as there are real jobs involved in designing, creating and selling the clothes she promotes.    She has turned out to be a delightful and accomplished dancer who has worked hard and improved her technique and performance every week.

I thought the worst part of sports personality was throwing in Nelson Mandela and the award for the Hillsborough campaigner, neither should of been on a sports award programme, seems to me the BBC get more political by the week. Go Sophie by the way.

Red Rum was a studio guest in the 1977 Sports Personality of the Year.  I think that maybe he had a bit more personality than some of the winners 

I'm going for Susannah, simply because nobody else is, and I know nothing about dancing.

Domt think susannah will win the grand national

I am going to a family 'do' tonight so can't watch the final

I'm going to have to wrap myself up in a cacoon until Sunday morning when I can watch it 'live' on the recorder (no radio/TV/smartphone or tablet!). I HATE having to do that.

21/12/2013 at 13:32

But we know the result already.  Verdun is going to win it.

Or was that the Grand National..........................

21/12/2013 at 15:32

Yes, think that was the grand national, we should all place our bets now for a good cash return

I certainly won't claim that Andy Murray has the greatest of personalities and his voice is definitely monotone, but he's the best tennis player we've had for many decades.  He wants to win and isn't content with being 3rd or 4th best as some others seem to have been (I won't mention Tim Henman by name).

It should  be called Sports Person of the year, not Sports Personality.  Remember Nigel Mansell winning?  Now we really was seriously lacking in charisma, personality, vocal range etc but he was one heck of a driver.

Nigel M may not have had much of a personality, but he certainly made up for it with his forceful moustache ...........  maybe Andy Murray should grow a moustache
