BBC SPOTY 2019
« on: November 25, 2019, 07:41:10 PM »
It's that time again to look at the list of contenders and think 'how the hell is he/she on the list?'

The contenders.

Ben Stokes
Dina -Asher-Smith
Raheem Sterling (how the hell is he on the list?)
Alun Wyn Jones
Lewis Hamilton (good god no)
Katarina Johnson-Thompson

Well, that is a singularly uninspiring list.

Stokes or KJT for me (Clive). Sterling done nothing amazing.

Hamilton is very impressive in his dominance, but not a particularly interested in F1 and think he has won it before (?).

Asher-Smith won gold but in a field missing the very best.

So, Stokes won WC and some totemic individual performances. KJT won world gold, but IIRC Thiam was carrying an injury so could have been different.

Asher-Smith for me,  she's had a superb season.

Have to agree on your Sterling question. For the umpteenth year no British footballer has really done anything that deserves a nomination, yet they have to try to get one in.

I think Ellen White is unlucky seeing as she was top scorer at the World Cup.

For me you can split the list into 3:

People who shouldn't be on it - Sterling and Wyn-Jones
People in a sport where they're set up to dominate - Hamilton
and
People who actually deserve to be included - Asher-Smith, Stokes and Johnson-Thompson.

I'd be happy for any of those 3 to win but I'm slightly uncomfortably picking a cricketer in a year when we failed to claim the ashes at home and whilst DAS and KJT were both incredible KJT was treading a well-worn path whilst DAS is in an event where we've been under-represented for years.

England won a World Cup. Moore won SPOTY it in 1966, Wilkinson won it in 2003. Stokes has a claim in 2019 regardless of The Ashes.

I know, as I said, he deserves to be in the mix but There's just a little black mark for me.

Probably best just to give it to KJT or her mate from Killing Eve will murder the judges.
