Time For The Footy Show To Enter 2013

By Matt Coughlan

Last night the AFL Footy Show put in a commanding ratings performance garnering 1.2 million viewers nationally. But is this a reflection of the quality of the program or rather, as I suspect, a reflection of the hunger with which media consumers thirst for footy programs? Does The Footy Show respect its loyal viewers? Or insult their blind devotion with crass humour delivered through a tired format?

Let’s start with hosts Gary Lyon and James Brayshaw. As they come to the end of their eighth season at the helm we can safely say the apprenticeship is over. The precarious role of the footy show host includes shepherding the awkward player-panelists through two hours of television, keeping the show moving along, and most importantly – controlling the un-PC time bomb that is Sam Newman.

Eddie McGuire had turned controlling his mate Sam in to a fine art. But the Lyon-Brawshaw duo have struggled to stymie Newman’s penchant for offhand sexism and other off remarks. Such remarks may effectively target a demographic that may watch the show but would those viewers switch off if the humour was cleaned up? The indigenous-focused Marngrook Footy Show manages to talk footy and make viewers laugh without having to send the kids to bed or offending 52% of the population – women.

Last night’s traditional player revue only featured representations of women who were scantily-clad. In 2013, the footy-loving public deserves better. In a year when retiring St.Kilda forward Stephen Milne is about to fight a rape charge, Robin Thicke’s controversial ‘Blurred Lines’ was at best clumsy and at worst an arrogant nose-thumb to the criticisms of AFL players’ attitudes towards women. When Milne was charged, The Australian’s Patrick Smith rightly pointed out that a failure to stand him down was failing the AFL’s duty to women. A song attacked for its blaze attitude to sexual consent chosen in this climate further fails this duty.

It’s time for Channel 9 to start rewarding loyalty with a product that treats consumers with respect. Stop objectifying women. Talk more about footy. Entertain, don’t offend. Surely this is not a formula that is beyond the capabilities of the many talented producers and potential hosts and panelists that populate football’s media landscape.
