It's More Than A Game!
15 April 2002 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

The Footy Show is a vital part of the Australian Rules Football world. By far the most popular show of it's genre for 9 years, despite for the first 8 seasons they were unable to show any actual football vision due to a rival station owning the rights, the Footy Show is must-see viewing for anyone with an interest in the great game - whether it's to learn the latest news, check out that weekend's team line-ups or laugh at/be irritated by Sam Newman's latest antics. It is also interesting to note that even though Channel 9 now own the rights to the football, the Footy Show still remains true to their tried-and-tested format.

The show, hosted by Eddie McGuire and Sam Newman, with comedian Trevor Marmalade over by the bar providing the gags, also features a panel of 3 players (either current like Glenn Manton, Nathan Buckley, Shane Crawford or Peter 'Spider' Everitt or past players like Gary Lyon, Billy Brownless or Brendan Gale) who give their insights, opinions and tips for the week.

Punctuated by segments such as "Sam's Mailbag", "Street Talk", "Almost Football Legends" and the recent introduction - "You Idiot", gives viewers a chance to contribute in various ways (many unintentionally) and also have an opportunity to bag Sam in some way.

The Footy Show has never lost it's timeslot despite other stations throwing a myriad of shows up against it. Being completely live combined with the unpredictability of Sam and the gang means anything can happen and often does!

Whether it informs, amuses, entertains, irritates or offends you - The Footy Show remains the number 1 AFL program in Australia with a successful spin-off - The Sunday Footy Show - hosted by Gary Lyon.
