With Matthew Lloyd becoming a regular on The Footy Show this year, we can probably expect some controversy regarding the open and honest opinions he gives in certain AFL issues.

Haven't minded him so far. For what its worth I reckon he was spot on with his assessment of Melbourne's decision to announce Grimes and Trengove as captains when they have played just 30 odd games each.

I was just about to post that's something I'll probably never know. No inclination whatsoever to watch it.

What did he say?

And did he allude to the nonsense of wheeling out the demoted Green to address the Jurrah situation.

Does anyone find it strange that I actually really like Lloyd as a commentator?

Nah he didn't mention anything about Green.

Originially he was saying how Jack Watts has been hard done by through the media. Said how he lacks intensity and so forth but mentioned that you pick up a lot about workrate depending on the guys around you in the team.

He said when he started at Essendon how he had the likes of Hird, Harvey, Thompson and O'Donnell telling him he had to harden up, or work harder or whatever, and said that Watts might not have that at Melbourne with the lack of leadership.

He gave Melbourne an almighty whack and more so the senior players like Jamar, Silvia, Davey, Rivers. He said they should be embarassed that they were not picked as captains and that they were overlooked for 2 kids who have barely played 40 games.

I know the hosts can be annoying, but unfortunately, it still remains the only show with live breaking news (no matter how bad it is) and guests.

The reason I watch it is because it's live.

Damien Blabbermouth has already started with some betting issues amongst some un-named players so far.

So do I. He just has to be careful a bit and not become the Andrew Bolt of AFL.

I don't mind him either. I dispised him as a player, so it's a bit weird that I enjoy him in the media.

Re: The Footy Show - 2012

Was there tonight (Footy show) after waiting for tickets for 5 years. Was a blast, very very funny before we went to air and during the breaks. A good night. I won some Richmond stuff for makinkg the most noise (when asked to yell out Yellow and Black), Not many Tiger fans in the 200 audiance (~ 10 or so).

Good night, some of the stuff is so so, but its a light hearted sports show, no more no less. FoxFooty provides the more indepth footy analisys.

Go Tigers

I quite like his comments. Tells it how it is. Not too often on the Footy Show Melbourne would have been criticised with Garry Lyon sitting in the head chair.

Good to see.

Lloyd annoyed me immensely as a player - particularly when he went through his "autumn leaves" period. Not saying he couldn't play - he certainly could but the free kick pleas were rubbish. Was interested to see he commented that it is a regret of his career that he used to do that. I don't mind him as a commentator. I remember him picking us to win - think it was the year before last ? And he got howled down & bagged for tipping against his side. He was right. We saluted on the night. I quite like him as a commentator - calls it as he sees it. Nothing wrong with that.

Totally agree with his thoughts re: this.
