I am from NSW and a mad rugby league fan. I have become a fan of the AFL footy show which is on 11.30pm Thursdays. I am just so angry with the NRL footy show as they are just clowns acting like clowns and not talking footy. The AFL go through the teams have different current players on each week and talk 90% footy. Now I wish the NRL footy show would watch one of there shows and take some hints. I can see why now the AFL always win the logie for best sports program. Does anyone agree or tell us what you think.

I usually watch both and agree that the AFL footy show is much better for talking about footy but I still find the NRL footy show entertaining, well atleast for late night entertainment.

yeah! i live in NSW and enjoy following the NRL. i watch the nrl footy show alot. the show goes for 90 minutes, and the amount of time they talk about footy is no more than 5 minutes. it should be more like the afl one. i watch the afl one occassionaly, and i enjoy watching it. they actually talk about the afl. On the Sunday footy show (nrl), they actually talk about footy though, which is great. in sydney, we don't get the afl version on sundays.

It certainly was a great weekend of NRL from the weekend just gone, a shame that without going out and getting FoxSports it will only happen one weekend a year. I enjoy the NRL footy show, i just find the AFL footy show so boring, the Sydney one is much better for a late night laugh. I love the game of Rugby League, and it doesnt bother me too much that they don't talk a lot of footy on the show, they do have a lot of current players that come on, and in the end the Sunday Footy Show from 11am is perfect for talking 100% league.

i dont like the afl much, partially to do with the wanker who hosts it.

i watched the nrl one late at night once, and i noticed apart from like 5 mins at the end the whole show just seemed to be footage of them all trying to ski.
Modest to the top.
