- The Footy Show (NSW) is a strange kind of institution. Earlier this year (2005) Paul Vautin was seriously injured and couldn't perform. All viewers of the show wished Vautin the best, as it was quite serious. However, it was apparent that the show did not need him: it moved a bit better, and Johns, Sterling and Harrigan were good.
Whether the show will return next year (2006) is questionable - maybe it will become a late night show: its move back to football hasn't worked. And Vautin has too many weaknesses as host. Maybe he can move to the panel, and not be the MC. anyway, glad he's recovering, and may he continue to grow from strength to strength...

The Footy Show is an Australian sports television program, shown on the Nine Network and its affiliates.
There are two versions of the program, one dedicated to the AFL and Australian rules football, and the other concerning the NRL and rugby league. They are officially respectively referred to as The AFL Footy Show and The NRL Footy Show, though they are generally just referred to as The Footy Show. As they are shown in distinct geographical regions, according to areas where one or other sport predominates, there is little room for confusion.

Each version of the show airs twice each week in the form of a:
* A Thursday night program, shown at 9.30 p.m. AEST, and
* A Sunday morning program, shown at 11:00 a.m. AEST
The Thursday night programs are aired at different times. In New South Wales, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory, The NRL Footy Show is shown first. In Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania The AFL Footy Show is aired. The "alternate" version of Thursday's Footy Show would then go to air later that Thursday night. The "alternate" show on Sunday is not aired in addition to the regularly scheduled version.
The NRL Footy Show on Sunday usually starts at 11am and is one hour long. It is followed by The Sunday Roast, which is a rugby league discussion show. The AFL Footy Show on Sunday is followed by Any Given Sunday, a show hosted by Mick Molloy and Nicole Livingstone as well as a guest host each week, that looks at all sports around the world, as well as previewing the AFL matches for that day.
 The AFL Footy Show
The AFL Footy Show had its origins in 1993 when a special Grand Final Edition of the Sunday Footy Show aired on the Thursday night before the AFL Grand Final. The program was then extended and started as a regular program in 1994, and was hosted by former Network Ten reporter Eddie McGuire, and joined by former Geelong champion John "Sammy" Newman and comedian Trevor Marmalade. They are usually joined by three current and former football players in a panel format. In 2006 after Eddie McGuire's appointment as CEO of the of the Nine Network, he stepped down as host of the program and has been replaced by former Melbourne star Garry Lyon and former state cricketer James Brayshaw.
The AFL Footy Show has also had its fair share of controversy, especially because of the on-air antics of Newman who has been the subject of many complaints directed at the Nine Network.
Some of the incidents involving Newman include:
* Wearing blackface in response to an Indigenous Australian player, Nicky Winmar not appearing as scheduled on that night's program due to a flat tire.
* Hitting David Schwarz in the face with a pie before getting pushed by him.
* Getting punched in the abdomen by Shane Crawford
* Having his trousers pulled down by Shane Crawford, exposing his genitals.
* Drinking a full bottle of Jim Beam over the length of a show.
* Spraying and getting sprayed by Shane Crawford with a fire extinguisher.
* Antagonising guest panel member Jason Dunstall in a "Back to the 80's" special, when Dunstall refused to show up in a retro outfit.
* Referring to Brayshaw as dressing like a "girl".
* Chasing Shane Crawford in anger after Crawford appeared to draw on a Archibald Prize-entered portrait of Newman. It was later revealed to be a copy, much to the relief of the artist and Newman.
* Undergoing a mock nappy change by Shane Crawford and Brendan Fevola, when Shane was disgruntled about comments Sam made about him no
