Nothing against the romantic notion but I can't see a team in tassie working ever.
Well respectfully the detailed business case put forward disputes your ‘ever working’ view.

For one Tassie is a heartland football state: there is more passion for footy in Tassie than the Gold Coast and GWS combined. Crowd attendance would easily stand up

Locals and ex-pats would also sign up as members in droves.

Facilities/infrastructure are already AFL standard.

A Tasmanian based team would hardly be short of sponsorship dollars either.

Forty years ago some people said that Tasmania should ‘never’ have a team in Sheffield Shield cricket. That was a flawed argument then...and so is this one.

If one day Tassie gets it own standalone AFL team what should it's nickname be ? (Hopefully not a cliche moniker like The Devils..

I kind of like the idea of something like 'The Timber' myself

If they go with “The Devils” there might be a demarcation dispute down in “The Other Place” as Lucifer/Satan/Beelzebub/Old Nick et al might have to rule on whether Melbourne “The Demons” or Tasmania “The Devils” has precedence.

:think: ;) :p

“It looks like the Thursday night team selection, that has been such a big part of the footy season for as long as we can remember, might be gone,” he told SEN’s Bob & Andy.

“The AFL look like they’re going to bring in, as they did last year during COVID times, announcing the teams the night before.
“So, no more Thursday night ritual.”


So no more 'Where are the Teams FFS' on a Thursday night.

Surely we need to look at the shape of the ball next? How much simpler a game would it be if we just used a round ball? Get it done, Gil. No questions, no research, no need to take into account the history of the sport. Just change it, we'll all get used to it. What choice do we have?
