I don't know about others but I could write paragraphs on it. Basically, Alonso is fine (although not outstanding). Warne, Federer and especially Armstrong are more "lifetime achivement awards" acknowledging several years of work, rather than just the past year (none of which was there best year anyway). Which is fine if it is some rag tag bunch of awards for the sake of it, but the BBC carries some sort of prestige.

Off hand I can't thing of too many alternatives (without being biased), however I would throw Rossi in the mix after what many consider his best season ever. Also I would throw Tana Umaga into the mix after a Lions whitewash, Tri Nations sweep and Grand Slam. If I were privy to the breadth of coverage the BBC has available to them I would probably come up with a few more as well.

Sadly New Zealand no longer allows its citizens to recieve Knighthoods, otherwise Tana would be eligible for this alone.

Someone who obviously appreciates this:







Congratulations, Shame Warne! May you continue to inspire young Australians and young cricketers around the world with your drunken sex scandals!

He may be an idiot, but he's a fantastic bowler.

Who has been fined for suspect liasing with bookmakers and suspended for gross violation of ICC's drug code of conduct.

If it were anyone else a life ban would have been handed out long ago.

I've given him the benefit of the doubt for both issues; he's explained his side of it and I believe him.
