    This is awful. Constant moving camera, annoying music playing all the time in the background, little actual analysis. Want league teams back.

    Fox footy have really dropped the ball this year. AFL 360 is becoming bland, On the Couch is inferior without Dunstall (imo) and now this is the worst of the lot. Its Wednesday and there hasn't still been any decent analysis of the opening round.

    This is horrible.
    I'd nearly watch Bounce before this.
    Moving camera is absolute garbage. The jokey format is irritating.
    Yuck.

    I'd be shocked if that survives the season. So so bad.

    Show can be best summed up by the “Don’t Argue” segment, which is nothing but Ben Dixon making wanky comments to clips of Dustin Martin giving dont argues.

    They’ve finally done it. They’ve outdone the shitness of Bounce.

    The only way is up, hopefully. Sarah Olle and a couple of guests, different guests each week going through the upcoming games in an analytical manner with a bit humour and light hardheartedness is all the show needed to be i reckon.

    Yes. Feels like a pastiche. Three too many presenters at least. Don't understand why they think Montagna and Del Santo great talent and a double act.

    Just caught up with this one and was not impressed at all. Very messy, the two younger people (missed their names) were very bland and given that it was supposed to be a weekend preview show their wasn’t much previewing going on. And for most fans their side didn’t even get a mention. If this was a mid-week show, and there was still a league teams to do the weekend match preview, it could’ve been a something that with a little tidy up could be entertaining. But for what it is meant to be it widely missed the mark and I certainly won’t be watching it again.

    I watched about 15 minutes and had to move on to something else.
    The "social media" girl was deadset atrocious.

    I am now at the point where the only AFL i will watch (and listen to on radio) is games. The personalities in AFL media are just terrible, the TV production is a debacle and the lack of genuinely high level creativity is non existent.
    I am a big NFL and NBA followed and religiously watch things like NFL Total Access and NBA Gameday etc, because they are entertaining.

    Last night i swithced this shit off (i also watched 10 mins of TFS and Front Bar) and chose to watch Path to the Draft on NFL Network............. even though NFL season finished two months ago and the draft is still over a month away.
