was rather like watching concrete set - the ultimate boring viewing experience, and how anyone can conceivably look upon darts and snooker as sport is quite beyond me.

It was a classic case of the BBC making a viewing mountain out of a molehill - the whole thing could have been dealt with inside half an hour.

A first!! Or is it perhaps a second??

I agree with the FE. ;-)

You can also add golf to that list, as far as I'm concerned.

To quote the classic description of golf - a good walk, spoilt.

I didn't watch it, I read it on the BBC website this morning!

...'an active diversion requiring physical exertion and competition'.

This seems to include darts, snooker and golf....and pretty near anything else you can think of!

And I thought I was the only one that found it boreing last night.
Reapeating the phone numbers to vote on premium rates didnt help.

Young Sports Personality of the Year, Sports Unsung Hero and the Helen Rollason Award for outstanding achievement in the face of adversity was worth watching. After that I turned it of.

I didin't watch it. I turned it to BBC at 5 to 9 just in time to see the winner. A good choice for the winner although I think I would have reversed the second and third places, but that is only my preference.
