People in Northern Ireland would vote for him just because he's from Northern Ireland, regardless of the sport. Did seem like a decent chap though. Thought the whole event was a bit naff to be fair - its gone too far up its own arse being in these massive arena's with various musicians trying to upstage things, the orchestra playing too long on the various stage walks, the obvious A/V issues......

Valid point. Still feel sorry for him, he has beaten everything put in front of him and comes across as very humble and down to earth. Plus has done it all without any hint of controversy, unlike others...

Odd that people seem to gloss over it all for certain sports.

Missed out on 3rd by 12 votes. According to the independent release of votes. So if he didn't make the top three and you're annoyed about it - its because you never voted!

I used my three votes for Jonathan Rea actually. I backed him at 11/4 for a Top 3 finish last week so I was happy with that

Although I must admit I thought it was a loser when Peacock came third.

Think the guy who came third got it based on his Strictly appearances! Mo Farah should have got the lifetime achievement award instead (as he did actually retire this year) instead of that girl.
Why do people think Mo has retired? He's just switched focus to road racing.

Indeed. I used to even look forward to it no matter how good or bad we had done as a nation that particular year. Got through 20 minutes of this one before turning it off. Tuned in at 9pm for the winner only to find they even managed to **** that up when wanting to go live to talk to Mo!

The demographic that watch boxing/are Joshua fans don't care about SPOTY. I didn't get why he was odds on favourite nor have I ever cared to vote in it.

Three things the BBC have done to ruin this. It used to be a real treat as a curtain raiser to the Christmas holidays when I was a lad.

First, the decision to relocate it from the BBC studios in front of an invited sporting celebrity audience, where it had the real feel of exclusivity, to some cavernous arena with 'members of the public' in attendance for spurious inclusiveness reasons.

Second, releasing a shortlist of 10 for whom the public can vote rather than just leaving the great British public to make their own minds up. Giggs would never have got anywhere near winning it the other year if he hadn't got on the shortlist to start with.

Third, opening it up to online / social media voting. They should have stuck to the traditional postal vote system using the coupon in the Radio Times, make people put in a bit of effort. He voting now is open to abuse from orchestrated campaigns (again see Giggs and the wankers up and down the land colluding to reward him for basically being an old footballer)

Totally agree Bipe - I really used to enjoy the sporting review of the year now it is briefly mentioned.

Instead we have someone writing a clever poem to tell us what happens very briefly which no depth or context.

The obituary section, in the past always done in the right way, was so poorly executed last night that it was an actual embarrassment.
As for the presentation of the award, shambles is too kind a description.

The voting overshadows the review, but even if I want to vote it seems too difficult, I have to register.

Getting the music performers in and so many guests makes it unwieldy and difficult to control - they need to watch the old shows in the past and take the best out of it - part of the problem may be that the bbc televise a lot less sport than in the past but feck me they have turned watchable show into something truly awful!

very shocked how few people vote. if spurs highest home crowd this season voted for him, Harry Kane would have won. reckon they have more fans.

if zaha was up for it don't you think we'd all campaign and get him at least 50k votes? could we get 80k? Harry kane got 18k
