The Footy Show: Mar 17

Tonight’s AFL Footy Show has an interview with Collingwood coach Mick Malthouse about his future beyond season 2011.

Is he ready to hand over the reins to Nathan Buckley?

Joining Garry Lyon, James Brayshaw and Sam Newman for the latest news and entertainment from the footy world are Geelong skipper Cameron Ling, Pies’ premiership hero Travis Cloke and Footy Show favourite Billy Brownless.

Richmond are launching the Fighting Tiger Fund to rid the club of debt with a special function at their new Punt Road facility and we cross live to coach Damian Hardwick and goal-kicking superstar Jack Riewoldt.

We meet some of the AFL’s top draftees when Bomber cult figure Dyson Heppell, Melbourne forward Lucas Cook, Kangaroo Shaun Atley and number one draft pick David Swallow join us live in the studio.

Award-winning journalists Craig Hutchison and Damian Barrett will deliver all the latest news and Sam celebrates Collingwood’s stellar start to the year in this week’s edition of Street Talk.

Billy spins his wheel to give one lucky winner a trip to London for the chance at $100,000 and we find out how well the players can impersonate Sam.

Plus, Shane Crawford catches up with the kids from Elsternwick Primary School, Footy Show favourite Almost Football Legends returns for another season and Sam delivers his Mailbag.

It airs at 9.30pm tonight in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth on Nine and later in other cities.


  1. Brothers Bulldogs AFC in Bundaberg Queensland had a great year last year.. They won the U13, U15, U17, Reserves and Seniors grandfinals… A feat I have not seen in all more exposure to Aussie footy…

  2. Cameron Ling has been the heart and soul of Geelong for the last 10 or so years.
    He deserves to go out when he decides its time ! Leave him alone.

  3. I won’t be tuning in but can’t wait to next thursday night when the Blues vs Tigers are on ONE-HD also i will be watching “The Game Plan” next weds night 8:30pm on ONE-HD which should be better than the footy show.

  4. @Greg: If Malthouse switches from Collingwood to Carlton the streets of Collingwood will run red with Mick’s blood. And that’s almost not an overstatement.

  5. Should be a good interview, Mick Malthouse can be a bit strange at times but he does speak his mind every now and then. Let’s hope it’s tonight.

    If Mick cant find a coaching gig or doesnt want to coach anymore then i hope that a broadcaster picks him up as a expert commentator he would be great at it considering how long he has spent in the game.
