True, and while I know you said it to be snarky about there not being a Tas team, it does highlight how lame an excuse 'homesickness' is.Every player from Tasmania, ever.
Although that is something I'd do, I was actually pointing out the same thing you were. Homesickness is really just a way for players to guilt their clubs into breaking their contracts.True, and while I know you said it to be snarky about there not being a Tas team, it does highlight how lame an excuse 'homesickness' is.
I don't know the numbers, but between Tas, NT & country areas there would be a fair percentage of players without a 'home' team, but they seem to cope OK.
Well, I'd look at the formation of West Coast and Adelaide to start...Who was the first (in recent times) to claim homesickness? Statrted the ball rolling whoever it was
A good thing Bairstow didn't otherwise we may have missed out on seeing him get toweled up in GF's.Different circumstances and a different time I guess, but Mark Bairstow went from South Freo to Geelong and finished up there. Brian Taylor never actually played senior footy in his home state, playing his entire career in Victoria.
These possibly don't count though.
