To be harsh though, Andy hasn't actually won anything this year and is still nowhere near the top of the game.  Gerrard has led his team to victory in Europe and McCarthur sailed round the world on her own.  It was tough competition.

One of my daughter's is most upset that Andy didn't even get into the top 3! no  As she said "voting has just not gone my way this week, first celebrity, second x-factor and third sports personality!  The general public and me have nothing in common"!.  dontknow

Congratulations to 'Freddie' Flintoff.   =D>

There's plenty of time for Andy to win it in the future.

everyone in the top6 had won a major title or something except andy so even that in itself is impressive that ppl rank him as highly as that

flintoff,vaughan = ashes
gerrard = chmpns lge
macarthur = round the world solo
hatton = reunification of world titles
murray = third round of wimbledon and queens, various challenger titles, final of thai open, lost davis cup qualifying tie, reached 64 in the world

Also won Aberdeen Cup don't forget! lol

Although Andy didn't win anything big, he made a massive achievement by going from 400 ranking to 64 in one year which someone hasn't done in years and he worked really had for it.  Which is also what someone else did in that top six (i.e. Ashes won for the first time in years).  So Andy should have got some recognition for it.

He led his team to victory after not the best of seasons - he has a huge fanbase.
He showed passion and commitment to his team and surpassed all expectations. (not of course that Andy didn't)

I agree with the way the vote went for this year at least Smile

i would agree that andy achieved a huge amount but still dont think it really beats what the others achieved.the sports personality award is for those who are achieving things recognized as making them absolutely outstanding compared to anyone in their field not just improving remarkably well and doing well at a young age.the fact that andy even made the shortlist is really recognition enough as i said before.that in itself really shows how much he has captured peoples imagination
