    Reflects an era when the BBC used to show sport! How they can sustain a sports personality of the year show when they only show stuff the government legislates for them to show is beyond me, the whole thing a total waste of licence payers money - along with much of their other activity - ps when I read your post Andy - I really hoped it was Sir Bobby Robson, a man who has given far more to football in general, in my view

    Agree to a certain extent Bertie - however the award was for contribution to sport as a whole - not just football.
     
  4. Sir Bobby Robson was given the lifetime achievement last year.

    Sir Bobby was a great footballer who I had the privilege to see many times in the 60's. As great a footballer as he was,he wasn't particularly liked by some of his team mates though,indeed George Best did not get on too well with him.
    As an aside ,a good friend of mine who was born in Manchester but emigrated to OZ came back to Manchester a couple of years ago and took his 6 year old daughter to the Man Utd golf day so he could get some photos. Keith was stood next to Sir Bobby as he was about to tee off,whereupon noticing his daughter he said' Is she with you?' when Keith said 'Yes' ,Sir Bobby said'Well you had better keep her quiet I am here to play golf so I don't want to hear her' .Sir Bobby had been Keith's hero since childhood but the image had been shattered.

    could lose the ball when in possession too. think stan cullis would've left im on the bench.
     
  11. Why the angst? The awards aren't limited to BBC covered sports, it is open to all. A ceremony respected by the rest of the media.

    Are the beeb meant to pretend that sports that it doesn't have the rights to show don't actually exist?

    ...and outbidding commercial rivals who can charge a monthly subscription fee is presumably an acceptable and completely uncontroversial way to spend the license fee budget?

    I'd axe sports personality of the year, because it is and always has been an incredibly boring TV show.

    Mind you, it was nice to see the cameras lingering on Ron Flowers - he got more airtime than Geoff Hurst!

    Mind you, what was Phil Neville doing on the end?

    If the Golf story is true then Jack Charlton was probably right about his little brother and his wife who dissed their mother. Now Jack was a competitor with the right attitude.

    Jack Charlton never really got on with his brother and the makers of Brylcreem allegedly refused to have him endorse their products, I am not sure that was a temper thing?
