That's a shame, it has been a long time coming.

Does anyone have any fond memories of the show?

* The time Clinton Schifcofske completely shattered this kids dream of watching him play for NSW.

* There was a segment where Sterlo took a bunch of paintballs to the gut like a maniac.

*The serious interviews were usually top notch. The Joey drug admission, Gallop vs. Gould, Gould dishing on Hook etc. all fond memories

* Nads, the race dog

*Big Marn riding the motorbike into the fence

They tried to revamp the show, but making it a glorified post-match show was never going to help matters. 9 have to re-think who they cast on these shows. I couldn't see JT giving an honest opinion on anything and Thaiday tries way too hard. They also managed to get the least funny Sims of the bunch. Maybe Nathan Brown can apply for the job when things turn pear shape at Newcastle?
Hmmmm.......Erin Moylan gets the sack

nek minnit, Pete starts posting again.

Reg Reagan was so good. Matty hit gold with that character and was the last genuine piss-take before PCness spiralled out of control.

It’s low brow sure and bits may not have aged well, but everyone involved knew to play along and they were a bit more relaxed and not looking for reasons to be offended

I like the Johns brothers. I don't watch Matty's show (I don't watch any NRL show anymore), but he was always fun back on CH9. Andrew is one of the better "specialist" commentators too, when he analyses play and especially when he gives insight into how the halves think and their techniques.

Once you can work out what he's said, I agree. It's a struggle with the way he stutters and shit these days.
