BOUNCE celebrates 350 episodes on FOX FOOTY this weekend
Since 2007, former AFL rivals Jason “Chief” Dunstall and Danny “Spud” Frawley, plus an eclectic crew of mates have charmed footy fans every week on FOX FOOTY’s flagship sports entertainment program, Bounce.
This Sunday, June 23, Bounce celebrates 350 episodes and reflects on the hilarious favourite moments of the last 349 episodes.
From the the revolutionary introduction of the ‘Golden Fist Award’ – that’s now a critical component of footy fan language – to the cult-segment ‘Numerology’, Bounce is football’s longest running variety show that has families in stiches.
It’s the FOX FOOTY “footytainment” show that has something for everyone: Analysis, laughs and highlights – often in the same breath. A balance that has stood the test of time.
Regular segments ‘Turn It Up’ is a phrase from the 1950s that Bounce has single-handedly reintroduced, while ‘Yesterday’s Heroes’ sees footy greats making fools of themselves to make viewers laugh every week. More recently, Bernie Vince, Sharni Layton and Cameron “Moons” Mooney have participated in the heroes challenges under the experienced eyes of Chief and Spud.
Timing has always been one of Chief’s great strengths. Whether he’s delivering a scathing critique of a dribble kick or pursuing Moons or Spud in a bitter debate, the Hawks legend never misses a beat.
The guest list across the first 349 shows reads like a who’s who of Australian sport and comedy. Mark Bosnich, Nathan Buckley, Rodney Hogg, Mike Sheahan and Sam Pang are among a long list who have graced the couch.
This Sunday after the footy, fans will revel with Chief, Spud, Moons and basketball icon Andrew Gaze as they celebrate the best bits of their last 13 years on air.
