Yeh its always been live as far as I know. I remember the old Roast was live because members sometimes had to run across from the footy show to the roast set, and also leave early to get to the 3pm match.
Its probably up there with Freddy telling everyone what the crowd was chanting one time, with the word starting with B.
wally lewis: “the crowd here is associating me with finance…chanting something along the lines of: ‘wally is a banker’” i lol’d
but nah jokes apart, the way the footy and the footy shows are run is simply mediocre. it’s great to have ex-players give their insight, but if u wanna be on tv all the time, get some training into em. anyone who works in media must be laughing at the way some of the nrl players talk on tv and also be ticked off that they go through such extensive training and hard work but some of these blokes just rock up in a suit without any clue as to how to behave on tv.
