Sports personality of the year

Is the state of British sport really that bad that the sports personality of the year is Zara Philips?

She swept professionals who dedicate their lives to their sport aside to reach the title as a part-timer, albiet a very well connected part-timer. We at the Daily suspect that if she weren’t a member of the most famous disfunctional family in the country, an obscure horsey person would never have won.

    I agree! She fails on both counts, hers isn’t a “sport” and she sure ain’t no “personality” … the horse should win the award, not that toff Zara who ponces around doing sweet FA.

  2. It’s ridiculous, it’s like Beckham winning it.

    Do you mean Victoria?

    At least David Beckham must have put in some serious hard work somewhere along the line…

  4. Well, yeah but horse-jumping’s probably difficult (although it’s obviously even more difficult for those who can’t afford a horse when they’re younger.)

    The point was that however good Zara might be at horse-jumping, she’s not really famous for it, in the same way that however good Beckham might be at football, he’s now famous for wearing sun-glasses.

    Damn straight. When we have a republic this sort of thing won’t happen any more.

    what a rubbish opinion. who else? is easy to say it’s a shit sport and she’s a Royal, harder to say who should have won it
