Why is this even in the sports section?
208. CDM79212. Harry P223. Ray244. Ginger_FreakSee my post at 153.There are many sports in which it is impossible to maintain the required level of fitness to stay at the very top for such extended periods of time, so the real test of an individual's greatness and dominance in any given sport is how far their win ratio is ahead of the next best.PT qualifies as do those you mentioned.
@273 He's already been on the SPOTY short list and came 2nd
every time piggott,s arse was in the saddle he was favourite taylor was the outsider this time
272 Knighthood? I am from Stoke and the idea is a joke. The GREAT Lester Piggott lost his MBE following a criminal conviction, and he, by the way, was a real sportsman. Taylor is a dreadful example to sport in general, the best darts player ever, obviously, but lacking in grace, humility, and very thick.
You mentioned Manley, Fordham and Hudson as being three of the most athletic players in darts. I live quite near Andy Fordham and usually see him out training at least four times a week.
#272 (Keith41) : Get on the BBC SPOTY short-list of 12 would be good starting point. Did you noticed that while Bradley Wiggins was climbing four 6,000' mountains in 8 hours he had about 150 Johnny foreigners trying to pull him back! Although Phil Taylor does play some foreigners at times is not qute like 150 at the same time!
surely this man deserves a knighthood what more does he have to do for the game
