Cant watch it now that pies beat us and Caro (daughter of Ian) was right about  her beloved tigers. Wilson and Eddie are unbearable. Never stop interupting and hogging the show.

Give me Drew Morphett and Tim Lane on the ABC any day over the current corporate actors.

Only ever watched the ABC for those two and 4 Corners program.

I've already said I didn't see LDcV's post referring to Caro and Eddie. 

No it is not ok to bag either of them.  It is not ok to bag anyone doing their job.

No agenda.  I just find these type of threads tedious.  They and the number of repetitive threads on DL is causing me to post less and less these days.  So maybe I do have an agenda:  enjoy DL a bit more than I have lately. 

And before you tell me to not open a thread if I don't like what is posted, believe me I don't.  After the first 10-20 posts of a new thread the writing is often on the wall and I don't open them again.  To qualify that: if anyone quotes me I will come to a thread to give them the courtesy of reading their comments and if required respond.  This thread is now in that category.

What is wrong with a thread on a footy site, that talks about a footy show compere who constantly mentions his club and himself?

Seriously?

I don't watch many footy shows but when I do I see them bang on about stuff we've been talking about here for months and sometimes years.

What do you mean by this? That any criticism of anyone should be avoided?

Bagging and criticising = two different things.

Faulty, Luci is the lovely person who rounds up the spilled conscious of opposition fans for our benefit every week. 

Not wanting to read more odious takes on the faces we see on the TV is not an agenda.

@Lucifers Herois also the lovely person who gives us detailed reports on player contracts as well as ticketing advice, amongst many other valuable contributions. Anyone wanna talk about someone with an agenda? There’s no shortage on DL, but LH is certainly not one of them.

Are they? What's the difference? 

Criticism can be constructive. It can serve a worthwhile purpose. 
Bagging is never constructive and it doesn’t serve a worthwhile purpose.

Hmmm interesting. So does that mean you can't say "politician x is hopeless" or "the umpire has no idea" or even "I hate Essendon"?

Or on Wednesdays, should it be called Footy Collingwood or Footy Eddie?

It is now just about unwatchable. All Eddie does, is to involve Collingwood in every segment and every part of the show and even himself, by declaring his production company is doing this that or the other. Additionally whatever is said by another panellist, Eddie adds “yes that is my info or what I have been told “. The big noting.

It is actually sickening.

Whatever they talk about, Collingwood is mentioned by him. There are always clips of Collingwood. No matter what the topic, there is mention of Collingwood.

Enough is enough.

It was one of my favourite footy shows, but on Wednesday is now unwatchable.

Please get Eddie off the panel and bring in anyone else, so that it can get back to being a footy show, not a Collingwood/Eddie one. 

 

The same is happening with SEN, albeit it's been a staged takeover for a number of years now since they started bringing Bucks on in a weekly segment when he was coaching.

Now there's Bucks and Mcrae doing the rounds.

The amount of coverage of the Pies is sickening in the media including their unoffical daily the HUN.  Can only hope they go out in straight sets.

Bring back the Footy Show with Sam Newman! Hahahahahaha! 🤣😅😂

It's easily the worst Footy show doing the rounds.  Rarely watch more than a few minutes and that's mostly an accident.  The remote gets a quick workover as soon as i see/hear Caro or Ed

I beg to differ.

In my world of 6 + decades they have always been the same thing.

Ps. At a game, have you ever expressed disapproval of an umpire’s decision ?

I hear ya Luci, I've certainly posted a lot less this week after some people showed their true colours. Was just a stern reminder that this is a message board after all and nothing more.

Of course I have. That’s criticism. But I don’t yell out “you’re an [censored]” eg. That’s bagging.

Tbh I can't watch any AFL media anymore. It is a complete joke and it is all sensationalist BS.

At the start of the season we were 'unbeatable', now Geelong are unbeatable and we are worthy of being a bottom 4 side.

 

I like first crack and on the couch.  Don't watch anything else.

I’ve “bagged” plenty over the years without using any expletives or even at times, raising my voice.

Bagging, slagging AKA criticising.

Each to their own.

I stopped watching the  footy shows because they have  become irrelevant. Since our 10 game streak has stopped …we have had very little respect considering we haven’t been out of top 4 all year and are the reigning premiers. Now even when we win.. I have zero interest in watching these show …just by reading DL you can pick up what is said if interested:’ It’s all about ego’s “- & click bait “ media.!

Anyone else see Donald McDonald on the Front Bar? He coached the last 5 games of 2004 for Hawthorn and blatantly admitted to tanking. Joked around saying - there was a bit of tanking going on in those days

assume Caro n Co will run with this in tomorrow’s paper??

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.

    DAISY DOES IT by Whispering Jack

    The Gold Coast has been treated to a feast of womens football over the past couple of days. On Friday night, the Brisbane Lions claimed flag favouritism when they knocked the Adelaide Crows off their second placed perch at Metricon Stadium. Then on Saturday evening at the same venue, the Melbourne Demons consolidated their hold on that vacated second spot when, they ruthlessly smashed a finals contender in consecutive weeks, this time the home town favourites, the Suns.    It was a case
