- AFL Club
GC is over an hour away from Brisbane, and longer if you're coming from Coolangatta.No I'm saying that if hypothetically the AFL was only being set up now, Queensland with their dispersed population like ours would be better suited to having one team playing out of both cities - the same model Tasmania is proposing.
Maybe in 50 years Tasmania could service two teams, but right now we can't. One team. Two home grounds.
North Melbourne, Hawthorn, GWS and Geelong all do it right now.
If you take the Qld comparison, as soon as the Gabba was redeveloped, Brisbane moved and never looked back.
The same thing will happen when Hobart builds their Stadium. Bye Bye Launceston. See ya!
