And from the 4-5 episodes I saw, it absolutely sucked.

I said a year ago that the show should've ended with Spud, cos he really was the show - the episodes I saw this year really backed that up, because a mediocre-but-light hearted post-round show really became unwatchable swill this season.

I totally get the need to have a woman on the show. Representation is important, and they should have a woman on their panel every week - but Sharni Layton is just so not a tv star. Give me Tegan Higgenbotham. Given me Sarah Jones. Give me Neroli Meadows (in a past employ.) Give me the other Sarah (formerly of Triple M I think?) who seemed to disappear from Fox Footy this 'rona year. Give me any number of female comedians from Melbourne who understand AFL much better than many men would give them credit for. Give me any number of AFLW stars deserving of a greater media profile.

Layton's not the worst thing on the show - Bernie Vince was just as intolerable, it's just that he doesn't even need replacing. The show should be Dunstall, Gaze, Mooney (minus the cringeworthy numerology that isn't helped by Dunstall telling us every week that it sucks), and whoever the most appropriate woman is who fits the tone of the show and has some charisma (which I though was Tegan from her appearances, but this thread at the time suggested otherwise. So give me Sarah. Or give me someone from AFLW who has some charisma like Darcy Vescio.)
Bernie vince is extremely annoying.

Croc media has well and truly diluted the value of Monday night TV review shows. Not sure if it is good or bad, but the way it is.

On the Couch/Talking Footy (is that even still on?) needs to be on direct after the last game to be as effective as it was a generation ago.

Bounce should be a Wednesday/Thursday night slot to compliment The Front Bar (lead in before) to be more effective IMO,

None of the shows you just talked about are produced by CrocMedia.

On the couch: Fox Footy
Talking Footy: Ch7 (cancelled)
Bounce: Fox Footy
The Front Bar: Ch7

CrocMedia don't produce Footy Classified either. That's done by JamTV (Eddie McGuire's company)
