Journalist Craig Hutchison made his debut as co-host of The Footy Show last night and the move had fans divided.
Hutchy took over the role from James Brayshaw after contract talks broke down between Channel Nine and Brayshaw last year.
Fans took to Twitter to share their views on the new set up and plenty did not hold back in their criticism of the Croc Media founder.
Hutchy has been on for 1 minute and he is already as unwatchable as I expected @AFLFootyShow

Hutchy a bad choice as JB replacement. No mojo whatsoever. 9 misses another opportunity to blood new talent #9AFLFootyShow

However, some fans were more accepting of the change and were impressed with Hutchy’s first episode behind the desk.
