No Ronnie O’Sullivan either. Possible one of the most gifted and talented men ever lived in the field of the sport. What he’s done for snooker is bigger then any of the last 20 winners of SPOTY in there own area of sport.

PC madness by the BBC.

Lol , grasping at straws with Sullivan , what's he done in the last year? He's not even #1 in his own sport.

Just one a 7th UK championship. After all SPOTY is a UK awards ceremony.

Ronnie is the Muhammad Ali, the David Beckham of his sport and can’t even get nominated.

Footballs my favourite sport but come on Harry all you did was score Penalty’s and a lucky deflection.

The fact the team perfomance of England winning a penalty shoot out is even nominated is beyond a joke.
That team is paid hundreds of millions and it’s taken them 20 years to win one!

I’m really angry tonight! Hate injustices!

I know there’s a lot of PC idiots on here! So I know what’s coming!

I swear if Tyson Fury doesn’t win SPOTY it would be a fix!

Let alone his achievements he’s the only one with Personality on the list!

Haters keep it to yourself!
I don't know why it's called personality of the year when it's really based on achievement. Rory Bremner said Nigel Mansell should have won the award for lack of it!

I actually agree with you about Fury, I think he's probably the most qualified of the nominees to win it because apart from O'Sullivan he's the only one with a personality :D I'm sure everyone else on the list has a personality but they keep them well hidden.

It's like Derek said though, you can't go around insulting over half the population and expect to win a popularity contest :lol:

Not sure the comparison here though, O'Sullivan is the best snooker player of all time but Muhammad Ali is not the greatest boxer of all time (probably done more for the sport though than anyone else) whatever people who know nothing about the sport want to think, that title goes to Sugar Ray Robinson (by a distance) and Beckham wasnt even the best player at any of his clubs never mind in the world.

Again I agree with Derek, its not about personality but acheivement so maybe they should change the name to something else.

Kane now into 2.14 from just over 3s an hour ago
Just over an hour later and he's back out to 2.9s

Anyone voted?

Don't bother - if Lineker doesn't like the result, he'll campaign for a re-run
