Nine appear to have some sort of contractual obligation to have NRL Finals on the main channel this year.

What an amazing person Kane Cornes is. Kane ran 725km from Adelaide to Melbourne to raise money for My Room, split over 12 days, so he was running 1.5 marathons every day.

Kane finished his run live on-air last night and got emotional when talking about the sick kids he ran for.

Talk about the energy this guy has. Whilst out on his run, he still had the time to appear on the Sunday Footy Show and Footy Classified, and is already back on SEN Breakfast radio this morning.

Should The Footy Show be revived as specials on Monday nights with musical performances?

Great idea but I’m not sure why 9 keep investing in the AFL when the AFL have no interest in changing the broadcasting partner.

Won’t be with the original cast but with the SFS cast

Is Sunday footy show going to be on mondays as well whee is this info

It’s not happening, just a hypothetical from someone on here.

Because the shows make money. It’s got nothing to do with rights holders. It’s as simple as that.

I still wonder if that money it costs would be better spent on more NRL journalists to enhance the sport they have a stake in

I saw part of the telethon last night. Thought that it was great.

Nine’s AFL footy shows are a major part of its brand in Melbourne. If it axed them, news ratings would suffer.
