I wasn't aware that not advancing past the group stage in the World Cup qualified a team for "Team of the Year".

Yertle, out of interest how are the recipients decided? Obviously, there was some sort of public SMS element to it.

Michael Campbell was robbed.

The public vote counts only for the Sports Personality of the Year, I think.

Warney was just handed the award, I remember his being the first announced on the BBC website.
