Aussie Rules fans around the world can now get a weekly dose of AFL gossip and news presented in a humourous style on Youtube. Footy Wrap is the brainchild of director and comedian Jeff Wortman, who teams up with Paul Hogan (not the one of Crocodile Dundee fame). The duo write and film their show from converted warehouse space in Fitzroy each week. Several episodes have already appeared on Youtube and WFN thought the light entertainment might be of interest to our audience and the the Footy Wrap guys were happy to hear they might be getting an expanded international following.
As their PR blurb says: Join Jeff and Paul every Monday morning throughout AFL season 2007 for game reviews, match reports and baseless Lara Bingle gossip. The Footy Wrap pulls no punches when giving you the latest AFL news, hearsay and unfounded allegations. (Of course WFN isn't responsible for any of their content!)
You can keep track of Jeff Wortman's series at his Youtube homepage.
The guys have also taken over as hosts of the AFL podcast on The Podcast Network.
