Garry Lyon and best friend Bill Brownless in feud that is threatening AFL Footy Show line-up

EXCLUSIVE: A feud between Garry Lyon and best friend Bill Brownless has threatened to disrupt the make-up of The Footy Show this year.

The Herald Sun understands the two have fallen out over a deeply private matter which has affected both Lyon and Brownless personally.

Brownless is said to be devastated by the turn of events and has conceded to friends that his mateship with Lyon is virtually over.

It’s believed Lyon, who is said to be under incredible stress because of the situation, hasn’t yet committed to the season-opening show, expected to be on March 23, the day before the AFL season kicks off at the MCG.

The probability of Brownless and Lyon working together this year remains remote.

The feud has put The Footy Show’s line up at risk.

Both Lyon and Brownless, who were contemporaries on the field and have worked together on The Footy Show for at least 15 years, did not return calls from Herald Sun last night.

A senior Channel Nine executive also did not return calls yesterday.

It’s understood people at Channel Nine are aware of the details of why the friendship took a sudden nosedive.

Lyon and Brownless underpin Channel Nine’s flagship sports show, with their blokey humour and close relationship a winner with viewers.

Lyon’s camaraderie with Sam Newman is also a reason why the show has been a TV phenomenon.

Brownless and Lyon are also key on-air talent at radio station Triple M, although the pair are not on the air together.

Billy Brownless is said to have conceded to close friends his friendship with Lyon is virtually over.

Lyon is the face of the station’s game coverage on Friday night and Saturday, while Brownless does a weekday program with James Brayshaw, who is also the co-host of The Footy Show.

Sources told the Herald Sun yesterday Brownless was unaware if he was appearing on the The Footy Show this year.

Lyon’s position will be determined over the coming weeks.

A TV institution, The Footy Show and Brownless came under fire late last year when he called a mother and daughter “strippers” at a junior football function.

AFL chief Gillon McLachlan spoke to Channel Nine managing director Ian Paterson about the sexist gaffes.

It was a difficult year for the ever-popular Brownless.

In July, he spoke of the pain caused by the split with Nicki.

“I didn’t see it coming, so that hurt,” Brownless said.

“And I took a while to get over it. But you’ve got to get back up because that’s what I do, you’ve got to be up and bubbly. We all get down but it’s about getting back on the bike.”

    If that is true it is a pretty dispicable thing to do to your best mate.

    The rumour I heard is that he gave one (or more accurately, several) to Billy's ex wife.

    Suspect this is closer to the truth. I know nothing but the article sort of says it without actually saying it.

    Footy show wont end. Brownless will disappear. His shtick could be replaced by any halfwit. Whereas if you lose Garry, then you need to find another vaguely football related personality covered in hair.

    Which, if it is the case, means Billy needs to grow up.
    You would have to ask, which part of ex does he not understand.
    He married her, he didn't buy her.

    If it was your daughter, you'd rip his head off and sh it down his neck.
    If it's the ex, it's none of your business.

    Actually is she an ex or are they just seperated?

    However if they are in love and are both very open with the father then he needs to grow up and accept it. If however he is bonking the daughter secretly and has no interest in a relationship then it opens up the crap stuff.

    Oh great .. let's speculate on speculation & rumour, & have the pontificator's pass their oh so astute judgement on how others choose to live their lives & what' is & isn't acceptable.

    This is peoples private business & concerns no one but them, ffs ...
  • IceTempleIceTemple Always Elite
    Not so true. They choose to live their lives in the spotlight, therefore their actions are there to see for everyone. These are also the same people who spend their careers focusing on others private lives and making fun of them so why do they become immune to it?

    Depends on when events occured. She may not have been an ex at the time

    You would be guessing wrong. I have a 15 year old and who she chooses to be with when she is an adult is her choice, not mine.
