Re: SPOTY - Jimmy Anderson

Love Geraint Thomas and made up for the guy, but you have to wonder why he wins SPOTY after one Tour de France when Froome, with his four tours, plus a Giro and a Vuelta, has never got near it. Might have something to do with G having an entire nation behind him... Probably. More votes and you win.

Isn't it about being a winner though what has he won absolutely nothing..no Kane shouldn't win it No. It isn’t necessarily about winning things, although Kane won the golden boot at the World Cup. Like I say, Hamilton would take it for me but I haven’t voted and I would expect more people like Kane.
