  1. I actually think there is a lesson to be learned from The Front Bar, Television doesn’t have to be perfect, they fluff there lines and lose there place in how the show is running at times. However it makes no difference, well it does in the sense that it makes the show endearing to the audience watching, because it comes across as they are talking to you not at you.

    Well done Andy, Mick and Sam you have gone from a YouTube show to a 7mate show to a 7 show (in AFL states) and it’s worked, in fact much like a show coming up via Community TV would. It almost makes me wonder what would happen if say TEN picked up the Marngrook Footy Show and put it on One.
