Sports lack of personality of the year

December 22, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Running alongside the laughable ‘BBC Sports “Personality” of the Year’ programme is this far more honest rundown of the top three people in sport who have made those magical moments instantly forgettable throughout the last twelve months.


Third place: Jake Humphrey

Humphrey humbled by third place

Although Mr. Humphrey is not technically a sportsman, we must remember that no-one in F1 is. Jake has made it onto the podium by fronting the BBC coverage throughout the season and managing to be the main reason why people turn off before the lights even go out, somehow outperforming the constant mundaneness of watching 23 blokes in shiny boxes chase a German lad around a track in exactly the same way for up to two hours.

Plus David Coulthard.


Second place: entire ATP tour

The men at the very top of tennis right now offer breathtaking excitement, quality and brilliance on the court, but absolutely nothing off it. Come on guys, give us something! Anything!


First place: Ryan Giggs

Who could forget the tabloid and online storm that the constant revelations about Giggs’ private life caused this year? Super-injunction gossip and rumours kept football fans and many more fully entertained when they would normally be bereft in the close season, and it was all thanks to one man.

The Welsh legend thereby earns top-spot by not giving a moment of interest or personality when he is in front of the camera himself. The old dog surely deserves a knighthood simply for having such an incredibly sordid life out of the spotlight and yet offering absolutely nothing when he is in it.

We must also remember that Giggs was awarded the BBC prize a couple of years ago – much to the disbelief of about 99% of the population, which gives final justification of his being awarded this prestigious prize too.

Top dog


What do you make of the selection? Do you agree with those chosen for the podium above, or would you like to defend them and make everyone laugh by writing huffily about “disrespect”? Perhaps you would like to champion your own personality-impaired sportsperson of 2011? Please do so in the comments below.

    Arsene Wenger’s lack of personality is down to the fact that he lives his life going around not seeing anything.

      Aye good shout. Watch out for another ‘exclusive story’ soon which illustrates your argument.
