    Personality of the year?

    Well said, It is a nonsense to suggest this about the majority of people in sport, There are very few who come accross with an real PERSONALITY. A far better title might be sports person or for those older politically incorrect individuals like myself sportsman or sportswoman of the year. Monty as with anyone who represents this country and who does well should receive our approbation and in the time honoured way of Rugby players and Cricketers it should be enough to receeive a quiet pat on the back and a well done. Sadly this seems insufficient in this age when everything has to be hyped to the level of superlatives. But then I suppose I'm just an old fart.
