Still one of the few TV shows of any kind I watch regularly but it's habit of rehashing old footage they've already shown on an earlier episode (sometimes more than once) is a bit of a bad sign.

If you put 5 bucks on every one of his multis you'd be down $95. If a thousand people have done this thats 95k to SB for a laugh on a Thursday/Wednesday night. You could see them trying to get one up as the amount of people getting on it was at a low. Right under our noses

I would have absolutely zero doubt Sportsbet are doing very well out of it.

If front bar type footy humour isn't really your thing then this show would just seem like a big advertisement for beer and gambling.

This might be Neale's last year promoting the fight against MND.
Certainly get that feeling. He still has enough in the tank this year but only barely. His daughter looks to be taking on a lot more responsibility with the promoting and leading of the cause.

Not really suited for a show like this, he's been so obviously nervous and not the funniest guy going around. Hard to get a smile out of him. Better suited to a more serious show.
Seems like a nice guy but I've always found him bland, vanilla. Not sure he'd get me motivated and fired up as player being coached by him, but clearly he's doing something right at the Pies to be there all these years.

Probably quite well suited to the assistant role he's been highly regarded at for so long.

I'd love to know whether Tony Martin would still be the Logies voice-over person if The Front Bar had been nominated for an award this year.
