BBC Sports Personality of the Year odds on Betfair

The ever excellent Paul Linford has blogged about the annual nonsense fest that is that event, and there's no need to duplicate his thoughts on that.

However, a quick shufti at Betfair's odds for the event discloses that the third favourite after Monty Panesar and Steven Gerard is David Walliams. The first two are potentially worthy winners as they are at least sportsmen, if not necessarily 'personalities'. Comedian Walliams swam the channel for some charitable cause or other, which was a worthwhile thing to do, but hardly makes him a sportsman in my book.

Since this is my blog and I can meander every which way I want, I'll just add that I consider 'Little Britain' to be vilely misogynistic.

Thanks for the link C.have to say besides ricky hatton and Joe Clazaghe,who are world champions,the rest haven't done much this year and that perhaps explains Monty's coming through.

Calzaghe must be one of the best pound for pound fighters this country's ever seen

The rule of thumb has always seemed to be that if someone is a Formula One champion, wins the Open, Wimbledon, or a heavyweight boxing championship they are a shoo in. Football is always a toughie as most people will not vote for a player from an 'enemy' team.
