just his face annoys me
He's from Northamptonshire like me. His kids went to my school and when he won the World Championship a few years back, he brought the trophy to school and I had my picture with him and the trophy.
The nicest and most humble man you'll ever meet.
He is boring though.
smug, over gracious, goes on about his fucking wonderful life all the damn time, 'faux-humble', why does it take him 5 minutes to pot the easiest red ever?
I don't doubt he's nice, I just can't stand sportspeople without a personality
See also: Kelly Holmes
his release of his built up passion in the 2002 semi final against Fat Boy.
And frankly I rather he won then Marco Fu.
Shame about Ronnie though, how long before he says he's going to quit snooker then?
snooker is a subtle, reserved game, such outbursts are frankly out of place
Well that's all the British ones out of your goodbooks, anyway!
Seriously, has there ever been a more oximoronic title than "Sports Personality of the Year"? The aftershow party must just be a vacuum of fun.
most British sportspeople are just dull fuckers. I just much prefer people who allow their personality to come through in their sport instead of being some expressionless machine
what about o'sullivan and higgins (a., not j., obv)
the most boring final of anything, ever.
It's all in the game. No one ever says to Jimmy White "Stop potting the balls so quickly, you balding bastard." So if Ebdon goes slow to get an advantage, then fair enough.
Not that I would be arsed to watch him.
when he started tearing up in the final frame.
Also, i heard he used to have a ponytail. Is this true? I hope so.
I'm glad someone else hates Porky Pig as much as me
Can anybody remember that song Plebdon brought out a few years back? "I'm a smug, tedius, physically repulsive, slaphead clown" or something

i wouldnt trust dott not to melt down the trophy and sell it for scrap...
he looks like the kind of guy you'd watch your hubcaps around...
players i hate:
bobbygeorge has great although disturbing willie thorne anecdote
he's a top snooker player though, if a tad slow. but that final a few years back was ace!! i guess moreso cos it was a real cliffhanger.
with every bad thing said about Ebdon here. Knobhead.
concentration level is the best in the game. His style is a little slow but very attacking.
I don't particualrly like him but you have to admire his dtermination and belief.
Calling him a knobhead is a little unjustified.
He will breeze the final.
He's like a snooker machine - Ebocop or something. Always a great sport to his opponents too. Except for when he was having the white ball cleaned almost every shot against O'Sullivan to put him off his rhythm. One og his favourite songs is Creep by Radiohead isn't it? That's better than Shaun Murphy who likes Jivetalking by the Beegees and *weeps* Lady in Red!
I can imagine Shaun Murphy really getting off on Lady in Red.
Not a nice thought.
I recall him having a pony tail and playing FAST - can you beleive it - this was 1992 after all - was gutted when he lost in 96 against Hendry and overjoyed when he got it at last in 2002 - I wanted Ronnie to be playing him though so this final might not be high on my agenda - boo!!
I like him basically. But he needs to speed up. I like firstname.lastname@example.org
"Peter loves eating cake, having banter, eating peanuts and swimming in his nextdoor neighbours pond. He also loves smoking pink cigarillos and fishing with 56feet long fishing rods. He would love to ride one of his virually designed horses around Loch Ness and jump over a fence."
I suspect that's not in his official WPBSA biography somehow. Although I'm going to adopt "having banter" in case I'm ever asked for a list of personality traits.
There's another six frames to be played tonight! I want to watch MOTD2!
