Ronnie's actually the favourite to win SPOTY this year which I was surprised to see. Could this be the year snooker gets some long overdue recognition?

If Ronnie wins the World Championship then yeah he might win that award, but if he doesnt, and thats a big IF, then I can see someone else winning that. Just like in previous years.

To win SPOTY a snooker player should win the World title you have to say. ROS would have deserved to win in 2013 when he took that year off and won the World title.

If he wins the World title this year he certainly deserves it. That combined with the fact he would break Hendrys ranking title record. The 1000 centuries. World number one and stuff like that. But has to win that World title.

True, but he was never the favourite to win it like he is ATM. He was rarely ever in the discussion, if truth be told. However, this year there seems to be a growing clamour for him to finally get the award because of the records he has achieved.

I'm not sure why we're that bothered.

SPOTY is just the BBC sport's annual Christmas party. It literally isn't more important than that. They give the awards to their mates.
