    i dont mind the 6pm slot. I think they decided to put it at 6pm becasue they didnt want it to go against AFL and NRL coverage. I like that decision, otherwise the show will not get a decent run. Atleast its better than a late night timeslot like the Front Bar as had recently. Overall will watch this show. i like sports panel shows.

  2. The show looks promising. But I don’t like the 6pm timeslot. Probably should have aired at 8pm? The 8pm Friday slots have performed lowly of late with filler programs…..
