    Sam is a faded and jaded football star, used as a sidekick for comedy on the parochial TV show in Melbourne "The Footy Show" He is critical of almost everything including his old club, most women, except Pamela Anderson, most of his colleagues Sam's humour depends entirely of cynicism and irreverence, mostly poorly executed. Since his current bout with prostate cancer Sam has returned to the show more vitriolic and twisted than before,with his latest parodies on ex footballer Jason Dunstall and football writer Caroline Wilson leaving most of us who watch the show wondering when poor Sam will be given his pink slip. John Sammy Newman is the lead in his own prodution, "A Star Is Torn" a life of fast footy, fast women, fast cars, fast boats luxurious apartments plenty of grog that have all slowed down because Sammy just got old.
