surprised and not surprised he got off. thought it deserved a game, definitely a snide elbow of frustration. but not surprised as they seemingly refuse to decide whether stuff like that is worth a game or not.

the way they’ve gone about it in the past I’m probably more inclined to say it’s not worth a week

Same **** on every board they’re all biased in different ways. Or have personalities playing things up for laughs
Lol everyone knows we have lurkers from certain supporter bases on that opposition observations thread so everyone takes the piss out of those particular clubs.

Yay, sounds like Collingwood will be without any Cox on Saturday. They’ll probably still manage to bone us.

it was still alright a few years back, but the last couple of years have been horrible. this current season hasnt been awful, but there's no edge to it, nothing that grabs your attention. it's just a plain chat show

Footy Show donezo. Probably ten years too late.
I haven’t watched it for about 10 years, which is a good thing considering everything I have heard about some of the **** that has happened on that show over the years. I just find it ridiculous that they never dumped Sam Newman on his arse after about 7000 scandals and instead the entire show is now gone a few months after pretty much all of those idiots left the show.

It was an outdated show, died years ago. I would watch it every Thursday night growing up, it was a thing to finish footy training on a Thursday and rush home to turn on the TV to watch the footy show.

With so much going on today with Foxtel, Netflix, Stan, Amazon, all these different streaming services and Video games being massive for young kids/teenagers, there’s so many options now, where as back then, on a Thursday night the footy show was the thing to watch.

Having met Sam at cats based stuff rest assured he’s highly intelligent and very charming. It’s an act, and the fact he was never sacked for it means it was an act endorsed by management for ratings.

Pretty big bloody act then. Most of what Sam said on the air would get anyone else the sack on day 1 lol.
