    It looks like Channel 9 have stood Gus down from the Footy Show after Gould had an unhappy interview with Gallop. 9 have succumbed to pressure to to silence Gus who took News to task for their running of the game and the debacle of the SBW situation.

    I am no great fan of Gus but silencing him and placating the media company that runs the debacle is going to do nothing. Shame on Gyngell for not standing up to News - or is the fact they are guarding their TV interests related to this weak action.

    Here is the Url to listen to the interview - Gus is maybe somewhat rude but to have him stood down for what happened on the footy show is appalling

    LOL, I can't stand Gus, but fair dinkum how spineless are Channel 9. Maybe Gallop should just write down the questions he wants to be asked and Ch 9 can get that sycophant Weidler The Worm to do the interview, he can include a shameless plug for Anthony Mundine while he is at it.

    Geyer was so right the way he stood up to Weidler. Weidler was jsut being a puppet and Geyer was speaking his mine....

    Again I rate Geyer

    Geyer was also yanked from the footy show last year after he spoke up against Gallop

    Piss poor decision from ch 9, we need commentators of the game that speak their mind not News ltd lackeys

    PBL (Packer) used to own Channel 9 outright, but they sold a majority (75%) shareholding last year to some Asian media company, but Packer probably still has some sway

    However PBL (Packer) and News Ltd (Murdoch) own 50% each of FoxSports, they also own 25% each of Foxtel. Of course News Ltd own 50% of NRL. You do the math, that's why Gallop is a puppet.

    Tbh, i can see why they did it after hearing the Gould v Gallop debate yesterday

    Gus was hammering him, without giving him a fair chance to reply at times, which stunted the interview a wee bit

    Gus should have been more clever, gone in with the opo guns last night on the radio, and taken the cannons onto TV, where more would be made of it

    Good.  Can they yank him from the Commentary Box too?  That would be brilliant.

    The interview was done on MMM and it is right that Gus hammered Gallop and didn't allow him to reply at times.

    However, the big issue the way that News, Nine and the media companies control the peoples' game. Until a sporting body with a commitment to the sport rather than a TV product runs the game, the real issues in the game are not going to be dealt with.

    This issue is symptomatic of a malaise in that free speech within the game is silenced.

    The heritage weekend?  When/what was that?  Is that when Melbourne play Canberra?

    We played Parra at Parra Stadium in the jersey with the white V. I have a few of the posters at home.

    Url of interview for those that would like to make up their own mind.

    What it says to me is that Gallop is a News puppet!!

    Gallop my be a news puppet but all Gould does is talk over the top of him for the whole interview.  He is also very good at pointing out all the issues but he does not offer any solutions.  I understand that is Gallops job but there is no quick easy fix for the situation.  Gould is a just a boofhead footy player with a big mouth.

    They should keep him on the Roast and drop him from the game commentary team. Either way, I won't miss him.
