First off the word is "Sportsman" not "Sporstman". Secondly it has been awarded to conservative athletes that appear on your very own list. Mary Lou Retton 1984 and Curt Schilling 2001. --DonnyC 18:42, 21 January 2013 (EST)

I truly do not see a lot of bad choices for Sportsman of the Year, with few exceptions. A good many of them excemplify the 'Sports' portion of the award, for instance Pat Summitt (2011) who became the winningest coach of NCAA Women's College Basketball, all the while battling the opening rounds of dementia. And in the case of Lance Armstrong, that was before anyone besides himself and a select few knew of his doping. At the time, he was the winner of the Tour de France, a cancer survivor, and founder of Livestrong. WesleySHello! 19:26, 21 January 2013 (EST)
Then why aren't more Greatest Conservative Sports Stars among the winners??? Ted Williams wasn't good enough for it??? LeBron James, this past year's winner, is not even the best basketball player, let alone the best athlete.--Andy Schlafly 20:01, 21 January 2013 (EST)
Drew Brees also appears on your list and won Sportsman of the Year in 2010. --DonnyC 20:11, 21 January 2013 (EST)
I don't buy into any political conspiracy, but I am curious as to why an award that is apparently a world-wide award is so disproportionately given to Americans. Look at 2005 for instance. Is there anyone who could with a straight face say that Tom Brady was better than Dan Carter that year? I doubt it. --DamianJohn 20:17, 21 January 2013 (EST)

Do you really think Annie Oakley, Chuck Norris, Billy Sunday, Ewan Murray, Gavin Peacock, J.C. Watts, Jason Robinson, Michael Jones, and Phillip Rivers would be suitable winners? Face it, man, you've got some pretty obscure figures on your little list. MattyD 20:45, 21 January 2013 (EST)
