    This pillock. Now hosting the Sunday Footy Show - how on Earth has he ever had, let alone maintained a job in the entertainment industry? He's a nasty, small, snide, unfunny charisma-vacuum with no insight and even less talent. He looks like a Private School bully who was always too cowardly to get his hands dirty but had no problem firing from the sidelines. Don't get me wrong, the Sunday Footy Show has always been densely populated with 9/MMM's regular bully-boy crew but this year, under his watch, it's taken a real nasty turn and it's horrible to watch.

    So, can anyone offer me a reason why this man's career exists? If not, please pile on the incompetent slug with your own views on how terrible he is.

    Didn't he host the Sunday Footy Show about a decade ago? Must have done a full circle

    Yeah, he did. And iirc the same complaints came up about his snide, obnoxious style. Bizarre they've gone back to him.

    Unfortunately while I love Lou Richards, Tony is all his fault.

    I remember his post-race (4x400m relay) interview with John Steffenson at the London Olympics. "John, what do you say to those people who'll say that you can talk a lot, but you can't deliver?"

    Really uncalled for by the campaigner.

    Wasn't he the whole protagonist in the "Whispers in the sky" scandal years ago?

    I have met him a few times, he doesn't mince his words and isn't afraid to voice his opinion that is for sure

    From memory Lou took him in when he was young and got him the job at Channel 9.

    Yep. Is mentioned in detail in the old Tony Jones thread, which reads much like this one. I don't think this guy has a single fan - how does he keep a job?

    I don't mind him, he is a good presenter and can actually string a sentence together. In his first gig as host on the Sunday Footy Show about a decade ago, I liked it when he and BT used to clash.

    He is a plant from Penrith in Sydney and that should immediately ring alarm bells. He is not one of us.

    He handballs like a little girl, especially with his left hand

    Tony, just like everyone else in the media at present, is terrible.

    As a rule can't stand "media" "celebs" doing stuff like this.

    Just an excuse for their monstrous egos to be stroked even more.

    Absolute turn off.
