    We can settle this by renaming the contest to "English Sports Personality of the Year". Then Murray's only eligible if he starts losing.

    It is pretty much only Scottish people that like Murray though mate.
    Or in my case,

    - People that actually follow tennis ALL YEAR ROUND
    - People that play it regularly themselves
    Oh, you're one of them.

    Wiggins for one. Worth noting he's done stuff that hasn't been achieved in a long time too.
    Also worth noting that the Tour only takes place once a year while Murray has four chances every year to win a major.
    there's more than one major annual cycle race, I have very little interest in the sport and even I know there's the giro d'italia. i'll stick my neck out and guess there might be some more...?

    Yeah there's the vuelta too, 3 Grand tours per year, the TDF has by far the most prestige and coverage though.

    What? Ok. Can the next 10 people who post confirm whether that was fixed or not?

    wow, an english person hasn't won it since 2006!
    although to be fair, for the 46 years before that it only went to a non english person twice...

    Tour de France is the Wimbledon of the cycling calendar. See the difference?
    i'm not being facetious there. wimbledon and the tour are the prestige tournaments in both sports, is the giro d'italia maybe a kind of equivalent to the us open? (I genuinely don't know this, i'm just contesting that wiggins has more than one major competition to enter per year as does Murray?)

    Coach: Brailsford
    Team: Ryder Cup

    I know you all love Wiggins, but didn't a cyclist get it last year? My money is on Jessica Ennis or Mo Farah.

    Although I hear there are some pretty short odds on Ellie Simmonds.

    It's Murray's mother isn't it? Totally agree.
    it really is! well, that and the lack of proper sideburns...

    I think Mo Farah should win because he smiles a lot.

    Wiggins is lazy, he doesn't even carry his own bodyweight!

    I reckon:

    1. Wiggins
    2. Murray
    3. Weir

    Wiggins for the win, then Mo Farah, I reckon.

    It's voted for by the public after all.

    I'm think Mo. Felt like most of the world was cheering him on at the time.

    I'd like to see Murray win it, but in the year of the London Olympics, it shall be between Wiggins, Mo-bot and Jessica Ennis.

    ... : )
