a campaign from great british racing to get behind hollie to win spoty is gathering pace. saturday's big chase at ascot has been renamed "good luck hollie in spoty silver cup hcp" 

i think she has a very good chance of winning if the industry gets behind her, don't think o'sullivan,fury,henderson or broad have done enough to warrant winning it, clearly hamilton is the 1 to beat, the winner in 2014 and placed many times,don't think he is liked that much by the the british public.

hollie has won awards already recently, and if itv promote her over the next couple of days at ascot, and the bbc give her the amount of airtime she deserves she just might win it.

should say i'm on at 100/1, and 8/1 without hamilton.ExcitedLaugh

sure, that was when i think andy murray won, so he probably wasn't a real fav to win and there were viable alternatives, hamilton os not liked by plenty, wouldn't surprise me if some sort of campaign takes off but the remainder to me look like no hopers on the achievement criteria

just found the voting; murray 361k sinfield 278k , ennis hill 80k, fury 72k hamilton 48k,frppme 39k, farah,31k, whitlock 25k, rutherford 23k, armitstead 22k, peaty 13k bromze 13k so a slightly deeper and more deserving line up

@jimnast re paying to vote.

You can vote online for free but you need a BBC account.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/sports-personality/55254105

Or you can vote by phone. I guess the cost of a phone call will depend on what sort of contract you have.

Jimnast,just had a look and voting stopped 2 days ago for the overseas winner so that would explain him being matched at 1.01 i guess.

Liverpool fans could win it for Henderson, @jimnast, and I doubt the cost of a call would be a factor. It might but do people really think about cost when they pick up their phones to call mum?

Ryan Giggs had been an outstanding Man Utd player for a decade or more, and probably also sewed up the Welsh vote. If a Liverpool fan were to rank their current team, how far down would Henderson come?

Imo, and I am often wrong about SPotY, Henderson and Broad are makeweights in a year when we lost the Olympics, Eurosoccerball and Wimbledon. You've got three world number ones, the best lady sportsman in the country, and those two.
Report elise December 17, 2020 8:47 PM GMT
on the plus side though, there have been hardly any noteworthy sports events and as a result it's possible the whole thing might be a bit of a turn off, so maybe fewer votes and a campaign for someone other than hamilton might have a chance, only having 6 runners will stop a wider dissipation of votes also, although if this goes to form it could mean hamilton wins by an absolute landslide

Racing is almost unique in that men and women compete on an equal basis, which ought to be in Hollie's favour.

Cynics will say that just proves the horse does all the work but where, in that case, are the female Formula One drivers?

Fury has asked his fans not to vote for him. If the BBC cared either way about Fury winning, they could have acceded to his request and dropped him.

Question is, for us as punters, is whether Fury is too long in the betting on the back of this controversy?





After he won his last fight. Fury became immediate hot fav ( odds on ) for SPOTY.
Amazing drift !
Report Storm Alert December 18, 2020 12:20 PM GMT
I think Tyson is actually quite liked, probably because of his colourful nature. He is quite an interesting character and I thought came across ok in the ITV documentary. O'Sullivan might well win another major completion next week. Hamilton not necessarily a shoe in as a lot of people just don't like him. Can't really come up with good sporting reasons for the others. Doyle has done well for herself this year band is setting some records (for a woman), but none of my family and friends have ever heard of her, including one who likes to have a bet now and again.
Report Ramruma December 18, 2020 12:42 PM GMT
Trouble is, Fury's last fight was so long ago that no-one had even heard of Covid-19 (not strictly true but you get the drift) and if you asked non-boxing fans to name the British world champion, half of them would say AJ.

@Storm Alert is probably right that Hamilton is not home and hosed but after that, it's not obvious who inherits the win. Ronnie can come across as a right jerk depending what mood he's in; Hollie is no Frankie or AP who are the only famous jockeys since Lester; Henderson and Broad are not even the best players in their teams.

Dunno. Maybe watch the programme and see who the highlights favour, otherwise no bet.

anyone watching this grotesque and absurd charade is mentally defective. fitting that it was 'won' by a truly vile creature like super-canute hamilton, resplendent in his hideous tribal markings, bits of metal all about his gormless bonce and tasteless clobber. hes recently discovered his roots and had his barnet done to reflect his origins in the ghetto that is rural hertfordshire.

and motor racing is a horrible business, evidenced by the despotic tyrannies queueing up to host this celebration of vulgarity corruption and waste. and its not a sport, so he shouldnt have been eligible.
