Gerrard would have walked this if he'd had any kind of a half-decent World Cup.

Who's David Walliams?

Walliams is Matt Lucas' sidekick in Little Britain. I think he swam the English channel for charity, or something.

Nicole Cooke is at 25/1, for Toro's information.

Surely Clarke/Montgomerie will win it, if Europe take the Ryder Cup?

And, given the rugby and football failiures, Simon Jones' injury and Joe Calzaghe's inactivity, is probably 1/25 to win the Welsh version again.

According to the BBC, Darren Clarke is now 4-1 second favourite to win this.

I think Calzaghe's dismantling of Lacy qualifies him as a real contender for British Sports Personality of the year let alone Welsh.

He's got no chance in the former of course because it happened in March and on Sky but it was an astounding sporting victory.

If not him, Hatton should win it.

I actually had to double check to make sure you weren't putting John Harston forward as you're second choice, there, HT.

I would like to see Hartson getting in the ring actually, It would be more convincing than hisinternational football comeback.

Still smile wryly at the first year the beeb asked for an online contribution and the runaway winner was Justin Fashanu, thanks to some waggish students.

Well, I'd vote for the candidate who is actually world champion of something.

Until I looked at this thread, and did a bit of related research, I had absolutely no idea that one of our royals was such a magnificently high achiever. Thanks, wingco, you've done the royalist cause a great service with this thread. (er, insert smiley.)

Your other half dies and, after a time, you decide to continue to partake in your chosen sporting profession. Forgive me, but where is the "bravery" in this?

Presumably the betting community is already on the lookout for other sportsmen with critically ill family members for the 2007 award?

Britain once awarded the sports personality of the year to a young footballer who hadn't really done anything of note up to the point that he began blubbing in a World Cup semi-final simply because he'd been booked and would miss the final.

Then, four years later, awarded it to a young racing driver who'd finished second in the championship, but his very popular Dad had died that year (or was it the year before?).

Don't underestimate Britain's need for outrageously over-the-top sympathetic gestures. Christ, remember Diana's funeral.

If you're referring to Damon, Rogin, his father Graham died in about 1975.

Graham Hill was killed in a plane crash in 1975. Although, I'm sure the fact Damon was his son played its part in him winning it in 1994. I'm not sure Johnny Herbert or Martin Brundle would've won after finishing second to Schumacher.
