    I think it speaks more to the incredible quality of the top three guys from the current generation than those coming through tbh. One of them you might be able to topple, but all three to be so consistently good for so long is unprecedented.

    We'll honestly never see anything like it again. It's like Ronaldo and Messi, but with an extra person there too in a far more condensed sport.

    That said I don't think the players born in the 90s are very good at all, and tennis will definitely go through a depression once the big three are gone.

    The 2 hour marathon barrier has been broken! Biggest time barrier broken since Bannister and the 4 minute mile, incredible stuff.

    Definitely. In terms of modern British sportsmen,I'd say he's right at the top along with Lewis Hamilton, Steve Redgrade and Mo Farrah.

    Got to be Ben Stokes and the England cricket team. Can't really compete with a world cup win.

    Should be a straight shootout between Stokes and Hamilton. Would be amazing to see AWJ get a nod for third place though. England ODI team should win team of the year and knowing BBC someone like VVD will be named Overseas Personalty haha.

    I think the problem for Hamilton is that he's a boring choice. He's so dominant in his field that he is expected to win every season. Whereas a world cup is rare and special.

    He's basically a victim of his own success and consistency.

    Ben Stokes produced not one, but two miracle innings this year, and one of them turned into a first ever world cup win. Cricket should absolutely win out this year for SPOTY, but there would of been a big battle for team of the year had the rugby not been shut-out by South Africa.

    Good to see Sterling get a nomination for being the best English footballer and the maturity he's shown (Gomez-gate aside) in speaking out against racism.

    Easiest win in SPOTY for years with Ben Stokes.

    Lewis Hamilton, as Shock says, is a victim of his own success but a World Cup win should and will give Stokes the win.

    England cricket team have to be Team of the Year as well.

    I was watching the NZ vs England cricket match the past couple of days and though I'm not exactly sure what's going on 3/4 of the time, it was very interesting to watch a sport the US doesn't have.

    Italy are in a rebuilding stage. We do need to change it up though, need a 2nd tier of where the side that finishes bottom on a 2 year cycle is replaced with the side who tops tier 2 on the 2 year cycle.

    Italy U20's beat our U20's though so they may have some decent guys coming through haha.
