By David Knox on February 7, 2013 / Filed Under Programming 6

2013-02-06_2352Footy Classified makes an early return this year with a special episode on the saga surrounding the Essendon Bombers.

After breaking the story on Tuesday, award-winning journalist Damian Barrett joins Footy Classified to present the very latest on the Essendon drug probe in a special edition of Footy Classified on Thursday night at 9.30pm on Channel Nine.

Along with Damian Barrett, regular hosts Garry Lyon, Caroline Wilson and Essendon legend Matthew Lloyd will discuss what may become one of the biggest scandals in AFL history. The Live special will also feature Barrett’s explosive interview with former Bomber Kyle Reimers in full.

Thursday night, live at 9.30pm on Channel Nine (please check local guides).

    Just watched this show and found it interesting but feel some of the AFL media (not all) are a bit too cosy with the AFL. Don’t like the way Gary Lyon just gets up and pulls his ear plug out just after the show ends. It smacks of arrogance.Love Caro but feel Grant Thomas will be missed as he added something special.
