Footy Classified returns to Sydney & Brissy

footyclass09AFL fans in Sydney and Brissy may have felt left out this week, Footy Classified didn’t air on 9HD. With GO! coming on Sunday the channel is now simulcasting Nine. That left ‘northern’ fans of Aussie rules out of the loop.

From next Monday the show is back on Nine in those cities at 12 am (Tuesday).

As for the AFL Footy Show on Thursdays, it will remain in its later slot in Sydney and Brisbane, just as the NRL version plays late in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.


  1. this is total bs, im in townsville and have been loving watching the afl footy show all year, and now come finals time they decide to axe it??? poor by you win hd!!!

  2. That is the biggest load of no sense I have ever heard.
    They show the AFL show late in Qld and NSW because they show the NRL late in VIC, SA and WA. How bazaar of an excuse.
    Firstly why would they even show the NRL in VIC, SA and WA they don’t play it there.
    I am at my wits end to work out how the programmers at channel 9 think.
    No wonder they are losing in the rating war, they haven’t got a hope in hell against 7.
    Channel 7 news wins every night, Dancing with the Stars wins every week.
    Do a few surveys in the street and see what people want to watch.
    I have been trying to ring channel 9 at the gold coast and they just have a recording on…Had too many complaints about the AFL show being moved to late I bet.
    Ohh well we will be scratching our heads as we continually watch channel 7 soar and 9 fall, and wonder ????

  3. I am like everybody else. Why would channel nine put the NRL Footy show at 9.30pm on both 9 and 9HD, Why have u taken the AFL Footy show off at that time? People had a choice, but not now, . We have to watch Vautin and other fools now and have now choice. I switch off and go to bed. Ch 9 your ratings are not that flash so why would u make such a stupid decision. I say bring back AFL Footy show at 9.30pm, afterall they are trying to promote AFL in Qld and nine u are not helping them. You are just stuffing it up. What do u think u are proving by having NRL on both Channels. Nothing. Come on Wake up and do what the people want. You r a like the pollies, they do what they want and not what the people of australia want.

  4. Axing the AFL footy show is a bad move channel 9.
    It is so good you don’t have the rights to AFL any more and hopefully never get them again. You are so pro-rugby it is sickening.wake up and look around. Us AFL followers have all moved up to the Gold Coast from down South and we now rule.

  5. I, and all my AFL friends are fuming at the fact 9HD has dropped the AFL footy show.
    I tuned in last week to watch it and all I got was that stupid redheaded idiot Vautin on both channel 9 and 9HD,………. because it was the crap NRL show I turned the tv off, wouldn’t watch that in a fit.
    Must admit I was confused the AFL footy show wasn’t on, but after reading the Bulletin today now know what you have done.
    Who is the programmer at your channel, they need to get a wider vision in their lives.
    That NRL show is for the minority of people who watch rugby, a brainless sport like the braindead men who play it, and don’t deny that, just read the paper and see how they make the headlines for all the wrong reasons………
    It is a game for no hopers, for guys that don’t have the skill to play AFL.
    Don’t you at channel 9 realise AFL is going thru the roof up here in Queensland and NSW. We have the Gold Coast team starting in a few years and NSW have their new team joining the AFL as well. For goodness sake realise AFL is growing NRL is dying.
    There is1 NRL team in Victoria, none in SA and none WA, the rest are in NSW and QLD.
    Where do we have AFL teams, yes 2 in SA, 2 in WA, 2 in QLD, 2 in NSW and the rest in VIC. the majority proves a point, it is truly a national sport.
    For goodness sake, pull your head out of the sand and have a look around, do some surveys and just see who wants to watch AFL.
    Definitely a wrong move 9HD…… get that show back on. At least you get viewers you won’t get any with the crap show you are replacing The Footy Show with.


  6. T otally agree if all these comments re AFL Footy Sow

    Bring it back on 9.30 9 hD
    In Brisbane 11.30 / 12 midnight far too late , & it was woorking great on 9 H D at 9.30

    Richo Brisbane

  7. lmfao @ FJ. I don’t which category you fall into , Numbnut, or Lunie, but AFL is not a Victorian game but the true National Football Competition played in every state and territory… Unlike NRL that festers in 2 states only, with a token team playing out of Melbourne and a bunch of Kiwis. When was New Zealand made part of Australia??? Total attendances at all 8 of the so called NRL don’t even beat 1 AFL match in any given round.
