Just had a flick through Melbourne's draw, looks pretty easy.

Gold Coast first 4 home games against non finalists from 2019, hoping to get some wins on the board early.

Marngrook footy show axed and just when I started watching it

Already, my 2020 overall football experience is diminished. Streets ahead of any other footy show, and showed the game more respect than any. Loved the way guests opened up more than any other show,

See a report on DailyMail that Neroli was not popular with other Fox workmates.....I suspect if this is true, it will be that she was probably more professional and expected higher standards.

If this is the reason she got sacked, I hope she sues the pants off them!
I suspect Fox Footy prefers the 'sexier' hosts rather than Neroli, who runs rings around the likes of Sarah Jones and even more rings around Kath Loughlin.

Neroli's knowledge and insight is far superior to those other more glamorous ladies.

However, we shouldn't expect much from Fox if a meathead such as Mark Rucciuto is employed as an 'expert'. Sure he was a great footy player, but one doesn't necessarily follow the other.

Indeed, a bit like great players not making great coaches. It not only doesn't follow, you could almost say it is a disqualifier.
Lethal aside of course.

I reckon it will pop up again somewhere. Ch9 might do something with it perhaps seeing as they don't have a footy show anymore..
Back to the ABC perhaps where it started. Feels like an ABC or SBS type of show. Nine would F it up somehow. Strange considering it must be there highest rating show by far

Nine would have Sam Newman on, he'd get the black paint out and it would only get worse from there. I don't know what the purpose of Nine's continued existence is.

This photo of Buddy today at Pre-season training is the leanest I have seen him for a few years.
Might be hard to stop if he can get some of his agility back, which he lost last year due to injuries.

I reckon lach was probably us grabbing our big fish. Hard to see lightening striking twice, more likely we spend the money keeping our home grown guns
It's not everything, hence why we didn't throw the kitchen sink at elliott this year. Just a little amused by their slogan this year, hope it works out for em



NOT!
