Yes absolutely. The growth of the outer suburbs has seen the growth of young families in those areas. The Kingston 36k, /Huon valley has grown past 15k,Inner city football teams have been in a constant struggle to stay afloat for years MM.
North has won one flag in 27 years since that golden era of 84-93 when they won four flags and were in contention for two or three others.
Likewise their old sparring partners for years, Hobart has won two flags in 39 years. Been an absolute rabble for over ten years, hasn't won a finals game for over 15+ years apparently. Rumours are they're not far off going under.
Sandy Bay didn't win a premiership for their last 19 years before they folded in the late 90s.
Most challenging times those inner city clubs have ever faced IMO.
Clarence 55k, Sorell is over 16k. Brighton area over 16k All these are are growing quickly
Hobart 50k, Glenorchy 46k & Derwent Valley 11k have hardly changed for years.
Growth areas are where the young families & kids are.
North Hobart has benefited from the Private schools in their area, but have still struggled to keep them.
Glenorchy area is aging as well.
Having a good business model helps but you still need the kids in your area.
