Will Andy be BBC Sports Personality this Year?

Quote

why do you always have to be so naive  ?
I'm certainly not naive, swearing is not necessary to your writing. I can accept the odd swear word in the heat of battle eg Andy during a match. BUt I really don't see how adding the F word is necessary in any of the posts my only exception would be if you wanted to add the F word before Fed!!!

Murray's 2nd favourite with most of the Bookies I've seen btw?

Why do we have to add swear words to the posts beats me.It adds nothing to what you say and is distasteful.

Sorry, I was guilty of this. I don't usually swear here, but I'd had a glass or two and was feeling annoyed. I will delete the post.

I thought Andy was 4th with bookies?  Interesting that yet another actual poll has put him 2nd so who knows?  I don't usually care two hoots about spoty and only watch it for Andy really but it does seem to be getting more coverage than usual this year because of the olympics and such a strong field so would love him to do well by coming in top 3. It says it all really doesn't it that Greg won for just getting to USO final.  I totally agree that Andy was right not to fly back for it.  Yes it would have improved his chances but he still wouldn't have won and he has his priorities absolutely right.

He was 2nd favourite at 330/100 with Skybet last I saw, similar with Bet365.

When does the programme and voting start? And does anyone know how much it costs to vote?

starts 7.30 and I think they put the numbers up pretty quickly.  Not sure about cost.  Probably more from a mobile than land line but I'll use both.  You might be able to find out cost on spoty website?

Ah right, cheers. Got plenty of time to get home then. I'm looking forward more to the highlights of all the contenders and highlights of the year than who actually wins (although will still be voting for Andy obviously).

Kyle Edmund has also been nominated for Young SPOTY, would be great to see him get it although it will probably go to an Olympian or Paralympian (I think a few were nominated).

Sports Personality's dynamic dozen: the champions up close and personal

Friends, relatives and team-mates of the 12 shortlisted athletes explain why they should win Sports Personality of the Year.

Andy Murray, by Jez Green, trainer and conditioner

All of them are winners – that's why they've been nominated. But I can only talk about what I've witnessed first-hand over many years. Andy is the most dedicated guy I know. He trains like nobody I've ever trained before and he is continually looking for that extra edge. He's definitely one of the finest athletes around. Having seen all the hard work that's gone in behind the scenes over the years, the ups and downs, it was amazing seeing him win gold at the Olympics, where he beat Roger Federer, and in New York, where he beat Novak Djokovic. So he defeated the alternating world No1 and No2 for the biggest wins of his career. But, knowing Andy like I do, he won't rest. He'll keep on pushing, hungry for more success – and he deserves every bit of it that comes his way.

 Great! Wonder if Caroline had a hand in that?!!

Wiggo is obviously a very strong candidate but the fact that his much spoken about chief desire after winning his medal was to get 'blind drunk' doesn't exactly make him role model material - a bit like Darren Clarke after his Open win who said he was 'drunk for a week'. Don't get me wrong, I've no objection to anyone celebrating their success but this seems to be much vaunted as 'showing personality' whereas Andy's hard work and dedication to his sport is dismissed as 'boring'. There's no justice in this world!

Times carrying a big splash in its Sports section about Wiggins , and a very cheap shot against Andy by Gabby Logan in a piece in the main paper playing to the AntiAndy lobby, attributing to him " the monotone of the terminally bored, and the elegance of a stuffed pike, but this was his year".   If you're going for an insult, at least make it witty. Stupid female dog.

I have been smouldering quietly since I read that article so decided to accept an invitation from the Times to make suggestions to improve the paper.    I emailed them suggesting they should sack Gabby Logan.     Immediate improvement.
