Personally, I think that it's completely wrong for sportsmen to be given a
knighthood whilst they are still competing. It should be given for their
(sporting) lifetime achievements on retirement, not just for the result of
one or two events
Yes, I know that the precedence has already been set
Some sportsmen and women deserve knighthoods, but they are very few and far
between, I can think of maybe four in the past two decades.
A knighood is worth f*ck all nowadays when you are lumped with talentless
parasites like Cliff Richard, Elton John, Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger amongst
Heh. Was having a similar argument with a colleague at our xmas do
last week "Paul McCartney was a rubbish songwriter, only when
co-writing with Lennon did he do anything half decent, and Band on the
Run was shit and the Frog Chorus is the only other McCartney song I
can remember, apart from that awful dirge Mull of Kintyre, and he
obviously didn't do anything else decent otherwise I'd have heard of
I gave up. After naming a dozen or so other songs he'd never heard of.
Not really. I struggle to think of a 'greater' sporting performance
by a british sportsman. For my money, the TdF  is far and away the
toughest single sporting event in the world.
 even *if* using drugs, too
