They more or less need to change the rules to nominate him

He has done little sportswise this year, but still has a chance
in what is likely a weak year.

They did seem to alter rules to get giggs nominated back in the day

So rules are there to be changed.

Given the current situation and the BLM movement .. .. the Beeb would love nothing more than a Black winner as it would show them in a good light .

the award is not the sporting achievement of the year but Sports Personality of the year ... so it doesn't necessarily follow that Rashford had to win a trophy or a medal to get nominated .

this is gonna be a particularly weak year .. i think he walks it TBH

The award is for sporting achievement not personality

the combination of characteristics or qualities that form an individual's distinctive character.

a celebrity or famous person.

BBC using it in 2 above but some people think it is 1 above

Without a doubt the public will use an element of 1 in their voting.

will fly out to 20's+ if fury beats wilder decisively later in the year also. even at 4.5 it's way too short. they would love a black guy to win, but he will have stiff competition from hamilton in that case, especially as he will have probably accomplished more than rashford in F1 at the end of the year.
Fury has an avenue to victory that I'm not sure ppl are realizing yet and that is the discrimination of the gypsy community. In this new age of BLM popularity it's hard to deny gypsies are treated more discriminatory than black people in Britain as a whole. although I'm not sure how promoted that would be or by who other than tyson himself, but it's something to think about at least.
Report razz July 3, 2020 1:11 PM BST
even 4.5 as it is now will look extremely short if fury beats wilder in the rubber match and by the 2nd fight it looks pretty likely. rashford will face competition for the top black guy from hamilton too who will likely achieve a lot more in F1 than rashford has in football this year. add to that the exposure hamilton has had in the last week or 2 in his response to bernie ecclestone, and also mercedes decision to paint there cars black for the rest of the season iirc. so if hamilton does well which looks probable and if Fury beats Wilder in the rubber match which looks likely or even if it's just 1 of those 2 rashford will probably trade much higher at some point.

Report armagnac October 16, 2020 2:47 PM BST
interesting battle looming here
fury virtually out of it
ronnie wins UK championship puts him in the mix and above the egotistical t0sser hamilton imo as both sports are pretty niche to there fanbase but outside there sports ronnie is far more loved to the wider public. tbh most motor racing fans think hamilton is a grade 1 pr!ck anyway.
probably the weakest heat in years and he's still not fav, says it all. clueless mugs backing him at this prices, its the anyone but him vote that makes him valueless !!

as this is such a p1ss poor year, will rashford get a backdoor pass from the selection panel ? afterall its been a weird covid and my guess is normal rules don't apply.
if thats the case he'll be a 1.01 with only ronnie standing a chance if he clinches the 2nd best trophy in snooker having already got the premium world title under his belt.
forget hamilton you mugs, wins f all. no one outside F1 would spend a call on him, let alone the time of day !!

having said all that footy is hopeless for votes, they just can't be arsed making the effort as we've seen with nominee's in the past. but this falls into that giggs category, plus its a parent thing..even the manks should help one of there own.
i guess a lot depends on this christmas free meals push from rashford, might not need another government U-Turn...his profile would get bigger without it. as he won't give in, bit like a dog with a bone.

rashford total certainty for me in a very weak year where normal rules probably don't apply, most if not all sport has been cancelled at some point this year so its not as if bending the rules really matters. does it ?

Not so sure about that, army. We've only had a shortlist of 6 in recent years & there are easily 6 top sporting achievers this year I can think of without difficulty. And don't forget the BBC is always keen for female representation on the list, and enjoy shortlisting a less able-bodied candidate when possible.

It is good to see the market has woken up, in what were worrying times as a heavy Hamilton / O'Sullivan backer.
It was incredulous to see Rashford down at 1.6 for a non-sporting achievement.
Final 6 for me are Hamilton, O'Sullivan, Fury, Hart, Doyle and Sherrock.
Hamilton wins, Ronnie second
Rashford wins a special award of some sort.

I know Snooker is a bit niche etc ... but Formula 1 hardly inspires most people .

IMO ...hamilton just isn't that popular among the public.. id be amazed if he won   ,..

Whereas Ronnie  OS is a real genuine character and truly is the peoples champion ... plus he has been around a lot longer, and most people who back football and horses would be far more inclined to vote for him than Louis H

It all depends how it's edited on the night ..but I'm sure the Beeb will have their favourite as always

If we are truly honest about it .. I reckon Tyson Fury deserves it .. in recent years he went to the backyard of both of his biggest rivals and took the heavyweight world title off them .. plus he has won many admirers with how open he has been with his struggle with mental health issues

If media reports are true, Fury donated his entire purse from his first fight on 01 December 2018 against Wilder to charities including the Los Angeles homeless.

If you want personality, Fury has it in spades - how about his singing in the ring of 'American Pie' having smashed Wilder this past February? Now he is better understood, he is extremely popular.
