  1. I enjoy watching the Front Bar i think its simplicity and not trying to be something its not is working for them. Keep it up FB. As for Footy show Nine should have started over with a clean slate they didnt, they half arsed it. They should have put it on a different night.

    1. Yep it’s the simple format that works, it is also why I watch The Marngrook Footy Show on NITV, pity that doesn’t get more viewers as it sums up the games coming up and footy in general.
