I think some people here need to learn what Sports Personality actually means.It is an award for your achievements,not an award because you can double up as a stand up comic! Look at some of the previous winners of the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award. Nigel Mansell Steve Davis Nick Faldo Princess Anne! I have seen more personality in a a bottle of pop! But they were worthy winners because of what they achieved!
