    The womens element is an angle for looking politically cor rect. It ultimately gains the relevant code greater reach and status. A very apt Public relations exercise.

    The Score Craig Hutchison has been in talks with Channel Nine about new football show

    While the make-up of Channel Nine’s replacement for The Footy Showremains unclear, the network is set to a launch a new player driven footy show.

    Crocmedia boss Craig Hutchison, a former Footy Show host, has been in talks with Nine for several months about the new concept which is understood to have been given the green light this week.

    Some of the game’s biggest stars will rotate through the panel.

    Richmond’s Alex Rance, Carlton’s Sam Docherty and Hawthorn’s Jarryd Roughead have already been linked to the program.

    “It’s a show that will give the players their own voice,” one source said.

    SEN’s Sam McClure, who parted ways with Channel 7 recently, is set for a return to television as the host.

    Crocmedia bosses recently held secret meetings with two of biggest management groups in the game — Paul Connors and TLA — to gauge their support for the format.

    While the placement of the show is still being mulled over, one of the options is to have it run after Footy Classified on Monday nights.

    Crocmedia already provides football content for Nine with its Future Stars show, which focuses on the under-18 competition.

    It's a very poor reflection of where rugbyleague sits at Channel nine given its the FTA channel covering the NRL. Embarassing stuff!

    playing devil's advocate a little, but is it a futile situation to start an afl footy show after thursday night afl games, given the demise of the nrl footy show in that exact scenario?

    NINE DROPS THE BALL

    The NRL is not just blaming bad player behaviour for poor TV ratings from the recent Indigenous v Maori All Stars game. A confidential report blames Channel 9. The internal report says: “Channel 9 did not promote awareness of the game on their channels and there was a general lack of awareness for the match.”

    That explains weidlers column today blaming player behaviour, Nine is throwing a tantrum because the NRL blamed them for not promoting the game.

    Wanking all over the upcoming afl games live from Melbourne at Richmond tigers home ground this morning. They have never given the Wests tigers as much publicity.
    Also led every sports news with afl.

    The home of rugby league!

    Finding it incredible that channel nine did not have the season opener featuring the Melbourne Storm on its main channel in Victoria. This game against the Broncos would have drawn a decent size Victorian audience. But the tv metropolitan ratings figures only feature Sydney and Brisbane figures again! Even a subsidiary channel could have been used in the non rugby league states? But zero figures for all capital cities outside of Brisbane and Sydney instead. The poor coverage treatment continues on channel nine. BTW: Channel nine are still airing it's Monday night rugby league show at 10pm! Another disgraceful timeslot. I'm sure fans would welcome this show on a subsidiary channel at 8.30pm? Perhaps they don't want to be embarrassed with the good tv ratings figures that would happen if they went to a non main channel with a decent timeslot?

    The game was the highest rater of the round, it did very well. What do you want? It's not exactly a mystery to find shows on the digital channels.

    Channel 9 is not the home of rugby league, it is the holiday home for the AFL.

    What's your evidence that it would have rated higher that the 1 million viewers that it got? It isn't hard to find the digital channels.
