Sports Personality of the Year - the glittering annual celebration recognising the giants of the sporting world as voted for by you the public.
Only some people, like Joey Barton, don't quite understand it.
Others (perhaps willingly to be fair) didn't even understand the #SPOTY hashtag.
Took me ages to work out what #SPOTY hash tag was. Then I was severely disappointed.— Jade (@88jdub) December 15, 2014
Some observers appear to think they're hilarious (or might actually be serious) when they say that the person's actual personality should be taken into account:

Louis Hamilton wins #SPOTY? My shoelace has more personality than him on a good day.— Lexi (@Lexi_92x) December 15, 2014

And obviously with Rory McIlroy and Lewis Hamilton topping the polls, there were people who started arguing that F1 isn't a real sport but golf is or vice versa:
#SPOTY Congratulations to Lewis Hamilton who stopped for petrol and new tyres better than anyone else this year— Dan Tracey (@dantracey1983) December 15, 2014

By that logic, reading the news is also a sport.
There were the usual few who thought that a phone-in accurately reflected the state of politics in the world today:
Surely Hamilton winning #SPOTY means that democracy can't be trusted?— Ed (@EdwardBowden) December 15, 2014
But the moral of the story here is clear:
To those people who still take #SPOTY seriously: don't.— Craig McGlasson (@CraigMcGlasson) December 15, 2014
