      It will(should) be close between AP and Serena Williams. Williams opened the door when she lost the US Open, otherwise it wouldnt be a contest.
      There are no strings on me

        Too bad Bolt is on the list and not someone more deserving. It minimizes the sport to asingle entity.

          you've got to remember that the SI award has less to do with pure athletic achievement on the year than it does a mysterious set of "other factors" which make the person significant. Antoehr way of saying capable of producing interesting copy for the magazine.

          In the sense that Bolt IS the sport these days, he's the perfect choice (even if he's not remotely the sport's AOY).

            Aye. My horse money is on the horse as well. If you search the Serena thread, you'll see that I mentioned that, once Serena coughed it up in the U.S. Open semis (preceded by Jordan Spieth's Open loss), it was going to be obvious.

              My bad. It wasn't anywhere in the T&FN message boards. I mentioned the horse winning SI Athlete of the Year (following Serena's defeat) somewhere else.

                Sports illustrated would vote for ISIS as "sportsperson of the year" if it could boost magazine sales. A major popularity contest.

                  Definitely. (I own several TB horses).

                  Reminds me of John Walker's statement that his fave all-time athlete was Secretariat.

                          A good lesson to all these experts. The year actually ends on 31 December. Although for Rhonda it ended in round 2

                            I'm not a fan of UFC but I did get to see the fight and her refusal to touch gloves made me want her to lose and lose badly
