    Straunchie is the weakest point of the show. The same joke for the last 3 years.

    Well he's probably the most popular part of the show.

    They did bring up the Riewoldt crying video to prove the saints are soft. Which I chuckled at.

    Eddie knew his time was up and went. Sam failed to see that his time had passed and it was time to move on.



    Sam was very funny for a few years but in recent times has turned into a selfparody. Him and his co-presenters are the only ones who cant see it. Not a criticism of Sam just a plain fact.
    AFLW Premiers 2018

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    I thought Ed would have still stayed on if he didn't get the Channel 9 boss position in Sydney. He was also asked by Packer to consider giving up his presidency at Collingwood so as to concentrate on his job, Packer then relented and gave Eddie the go ahead to continue being the Collingwood president.

    Re: The Footy Show

    I watched The Front Bar tonight ( which I rate at as very entertaining)and then after I flicked over to The Footy Show, whilst I haven't rated or watched the Footy Show for years ( living interstate has helped) I can't believe they still serve up this tripe on TV.
    Not one person tonight was semi entertaining and it is at the end to have a segment dedicated to Lou is an embarrassment to all things AFL.
    The sooner this tripe is off the better we will all be.

    I'm a perceptive guy. And it stood out like dog's balls even then that Sam had jumped the shark. It's amazing that he's still on the air.

    That this thread has been resurrected after a nine year hiatus, with the show running every week of the football season probably says a bit about its impact on reasonable people over that time.

    To be fair I've been interstate for nine years and thought it had ran its day when I left.

    My post wasn't an attack on you.

    I remember in 2010 I went through a phase of watching it again without wanting to vomit.
