Another consideration is that the general public have memories like goldfishes and will vote for the most recent thing...Hamilton.
Exactamon my learned friend. If you want proof as to how quick the goldfish effect can occur, why do you think people call the first slot on the X Factor the death slot. Cause even an hour later people are like 'Uhh, yeah cant remember how good that first guy was now'.
Hamilton is a shoo in. Paveys achievement does have to be tempered with the fact it wasnt a world event. I remember as a kid going mad over Dean Lukin winning a gold medal for Australia in the 1984 Olympics in the Heavyweight division. It wasnt until I was much older I realised that in that particular event if you have a boycott by all the communist Eastern European countries, your chances increase exponentially, and that realistically he wouldn't have even medalled had the boycott not happened.
