Host Tony Squires, with regulars Peter Wilkins and Rebecca Wilson ran through the week's sporting news, showing the lighter side of things. One particular highlight of each episode was Slammin' Sam Kekovich's deadpan analysis of all things Australian. Regulars guests included: Dr Turf (John Rothfield), Kerry O'Keeffe, Wil Anderson, Jason Akermanis and Liz Ellis. Initially the show consisted of a 30-minute Monday night wrap of the weekend's sports. After gaining popularity, 2002 saw the show extended to a one-hour timeslot still on a Monday night. In 2003 the format, scheduling and length of the show was altered, with a one and half hour show being shown on Friday night. Criticisms arose of the new format, which saw the show turn away from only sports topics and into a variety show. The Friday night scheduling eliminated the wrap of the previous weekend's sporting events eventually resulting in a ratings drop and much of the popularity subsided.
John Rothfield went on to continue his radio gigs at 3AW Melbourne on Glossing Over every Saturday morning until the show was axed. His pride and joy is now golf and looking after his three children, Emma Phoebe and Sophia.
