Thoughts so far on this show hosted by Dave Thornton?

That's it. First time watched it tonight.
Very, very low budget but goes alright for a 30min light hearted show.
Thornton as host is a good choice, has some quality one liners.

^ Yep looks like Lawrence is in permanently now. Does Lake still do boundary riding at Fox or is he just on that Sunday night Bounce show?

I think Brian Lake has been in Fiji filming Survivor or whatever it is

It's great having Mooney on it now. A good mix of yuks and deep trivia cuts.

Also, Mason Cox is incredibly likeable.... and he's a Texan playing for Collingwood. Dafuq?

I might have a brain injury.

not minding this, dave thornton's been good. not sure if i'd prefer 3 on each team or not, bit more variety but it might be a bit much for a half hour show.

Decent idea and decent show.

It would be a heck of a lot better with almost anyone instead of Lehmo, though. He is just simply not funny and, to make it worse on a quiz show, comes across as a smug, arrogant know-all.

Yep and way too competitive for a light hearted quiz show. Wants to answer every question.

I like it, little bit cringy at times, but light hearted and fun. Mooney way better than Lake, hope lake doesnt come back, show needs a comedian on each side so they can help prod the footballers into being funny. In fact itd be even better if you just forget the footballers altogether and just have comedians.

Could be improved, Thornton doing a good job hosting. Just from a footballing sense the questions are so painful and obvious, I guess its not meant to be a too serious of a show but come on.
