History[edit]

The weekly program is hosted by Hamish McLachlan[1] and has regular guests such as Herald Sun journalist Jon Anderson and former players Tom Harley, Leigh Matthews, Matthew Richardson, David Schwarz or Tim Watson. A current player or coach also appears each week. For the 2012 AFL season, Mark Robinson has been replaced by fellow Herald Sun journalist Jon Anderson and sports physician Peter Larkins has joined the team to provide the latest injury updates. The program has been extended to 90 minutes, finishing at 11:30am. This means the last half-hour goes head to head with Channel Nine's The Sunday Footy Show. It is followed by Footy Flashbacks which is also being extended to 90 minutes, from 11:30am to 1:00pm.

During the 2010 AFL finals series, the program was also broadcast on Thursday nights at 7:30 pm. A special Saturday morning edition aired on Grand Final day 2012 and 2013.
