And to those people crying about wanting Trevor Marmalade to return after all these years...that right there was the Trevor Marmalade I remember the last two years he was on the show before he got the ass. Absolute cringe.

The Footy Show was absolute must see for the first 10 years or so. Back in the day before internet made the teams available so quickly, used to either watch it at the club after training or head home ASAP to watch it for the ins and outs, the gossip, the by-play between Eddie, Sam, Trevor, Doug Hawkins etc. Over the years, it lost its edge with a combination of factors and was never really the same after the early 2000's, but still blazed a pretty fair trail that many imitated but failed (Who could forget "Live And Kicking", for one).

Oddly, it was Before The Game which went past it, despite being in the middle of the round, for comic relief.

Tonight was good nostalgia, though and a great reminder of what made the show both great at its peak and so disappointing when it went down the other side of the slope.
