    She looks terrible.

    She's an airhead and doesn't belong anywhere near football coverage.

    I'm not sexist, I swear to bloody god, I love women, they're awesome, but she sucks. Seems like she has much too high opinion of herself

    Sam Lane? Is that his name?

    I thought it was Tim Lane's tv commentary comeback, except now Tim dresses as a trampy woman, and Commeti and BT have to keep a straight face!

    She is awful. Another terrible decision by Channel 7 to get her on the coverage.

    Not really for or against Sam Lane, just don't think she's found her niche yet.
    It just seems like she's been plonked on the edge of the screen as the token female, without a clear purpose or anything of value to contribute. The other panelists appear to just ignore her or are uncertain of her role as well.

    I presume you all realise that Ch7 don't give a flying glory be whether us hardened footy fans enjoy Sam Lane's work. We are going to watch regardless. They could care less about us guaranteed viewers.

    If Sam Lane appeals to the casual viewer and Ch7's normal demographic (middle aged and elderly women) then they see her as a plus for the coverage and a win for the network.

    I always cringe a bit when she speaks, seems out of place on the C7 coverage.

    Shouldn't have left BTG. That show was made for her in that the analytical/serious stuff wasn't as prominent. She just struggles to get her sentences out...

    The mean spirited nature of this thread, along with all your abject ignorance, frankly surprises me.

    It's widely known that Sam has had a second job in Atlanta, USA, as an extra on "The Walking Dead".

    What does surprise me, however, is how hard it seems to wash off the make-up.

    Looked like she has bald patches developing. The make-up dept. didn't do her any favours.

    I wonder if we'll ever reach the stage where a woman involved in football coverage isn't immediately judged on her looks.

    Apart from the hair colour, the makeup and cat lady hair is spot on.

    Well, if they got nothing else to recommend them, then people will notice their wonky appearance in what is, after all, a visual medium. I would be very happy with some very ugly footy commentator lady who was insightful and entertaining, but, again, such a (hypothetical) person is better suited to radio.

    What a load of crap.

    "If they've got nothing else to recommend them then people will notice their apparearance"

    I see no threads discussing BT's physical appearance. Or Dwaynes. Or Luke Darcy's. Gerard Healy. Etc. etc.

    But Sam Lane, Kelly Underwood, Caro, that blonde chick on Fox Sports. PAGES EVERYWHERE!

    Yeah, they only get whole threads dedicated to mercilessly slating everything they do.

    In the midst of those I can recall BT's bird crap tips, Darcy's dumb and dumber cut and Huddo's balloon like head and pre-pubecent look getting a good run. Andy Maher's look was was never missed when he was on Ten. There's Hairy Gary and Newman's face, Brett Kirk's dress sense got attention and then there's Barrett's acne scars. Riccutto and Lloyd's voices. Patrick Smith, what's his nickname again... oh yeah. Pretty sure Whateley's appearance and Dermott's hair haven't been missed and let us not forget the appearances of Robbo and Hutchy, they probably get the most attention - I've seen threads dedicated to their weight. And this is just the obvious stuff.

    The misandry at bigfooty is downright appalling and should be addressed, but if you're desperate to play white knight, feel free to back up your trusty steed, aim your lance and charge again.

    I see her as more suited to the role as kindergarten teacher.

    Yeah this, she's not a smooth talker and it sounds like it doesn't come naturally to her. It is hard to listen to her trying to do the unrehearsed stuff talking about a game that finished just a few minutes ago. She was pretty good as a writer when she worked at AFL.com.au, maybe she should stick to that.

    I'm not sure if I'm getting trolled here. Is that woman In the OP who looks about 50 the same young chick who was on before the game?

    I thought her contribution on the panel following the Saints v GC game was poor.

    She was okay on the Before the Game panel where her questioning of guests added some value to that show. However, she is no football analyst and Channel 7 would be well advised to quickly recognise that.

    She's a reasonable sports journo who needs some time to research her subject and her questions, like most of them do. Responding to a game immediately afterward ain't her thang.

    Yep, that's her. One and the same.
