I quite liked it. Although not as good as the show previously on 7 - talking footy. That show left me wanting to watch more and more.
However this show might get better.

I don't mind Caroline Wilson but i would like to see a Mike Sheehan or something on there. Rob Walls would have been good to although those guys are contracted to foxtel and channel 10.

[quote:34a3d58597="red under the bed"]I heard that it was a hour long bitchfest. :shock:[/quote:34a3d58597]

Thats exactly what it looked like to me, a bitchfest. And no doubt it was a considered approach to suck viewers in. I watched half of it until I couldn't take anymore of that dickhead arrogant prick Carey. Although the panel tried hard to give Laidley a fair go it really came off pretty poorly imo. Would have been interested to see Malthouse etc later in the show but I already had a guts ache by halftime.

Give me the Footy Show .....and even Sam any day.

Caroline Wilson was actually on Talking footy at one period. She worked quite well.

I watched this show again last night. They didn't have the coaches vs the journalists this time. I'm not sure if that's because it didnt' work last time or they won't have it every week.
It was a good show i did enjoy it.
I will be tuning in every week.

it's only been eight-and-a-half years since the last post in this topic. lol.

To be honest, I have only seen snippets of this show, as I live in Sydney and this show airs too late here. Quite often way after midnight and on Gem. From what I have seen, I don't mind it. I try tune into it if I am up staying late and have a late start at work the next day.

The real reason of this post is to say that Nine has finally made an NRL version of the show. It only aired for four episodes during the Finals Series. The official name of the show was called "Footy Classified NRL Finals". I liked this show. Yvonne Sampson was the host of it and thought she did a great job on it.

I hope it returns next year on more of a permanent basis

good news. Garry Lyons returns to this show.

Nine has confirmed Garry Lyon will return to Footy Classified next year as co-host alongside Craig Hutchison plus Caroline Wilson and Matthew Lloyd. It marks his return to television following a year off for mental health.

“I love Footy Classified and have loved doing it in the past and thankfully, I have an opportunity to resume my role with three people I respect and look forward to working alongside again,” Lyon said.

Nine Melbourne Managing Director, Ian Paterson, added, “I’m delighted that Garry will be returning to the Footy Classified lineup in 2017.

“Over the years Garry’s played a vital role in the success of Footy Classified and we can’t wait to see him back on station and tackling the season ahead.”

Nine did not mention Damian Barrett, who joined the panel full-time earlier this year, in its press release.

Lyon is not returning to The Footy Show.

Although its a shame that he is not returning to the AFL Footy Show (well, it is understandable why), it is good he is returning to this more serious show of Footy Classified.

A shame though, that the show still airs late up her in Sydney on Gem.

Will be good to have Gary back on Footy Classified.
He steered the show quite well compared to Hutchy.
