Timbers has been eliminated as a choice....
Shows how much I know. That was my pick.

Jackjumpers - Not sure about naming a basketball team after a slightly annoying ant.
Tridents - I get that Tassie is an island, but have never thought 'Tassie, oh that makes me think of tridents'.
Pride - there are two things that immediately spring to mind. 1 - the usual word associated with pride... Mind you, having the worlds first all gay professional sports team has a lot going for it. Think of the publicity. I'm actually for this, just not sure rural Tassie would buy in. 2 - Think beer. Think the Victoria Bitter ads from yesteryear and replace it with Tasmania Pride. A big thirst deserves a big beer, Tassie Pride.

That leaves Mountaineers. My new pick. Given my history of predictions this is likely the next to be deep sixed.

I'd be happy with Mountaineers and Tridents in that order. Though they would likely end up being called mounties for short?

Why do NBL marketing depts hate the 90s?

Melbourne people: Tigers vs Magic/Giants, fu** yeah!
NBL: United vs Phoenix.

Tassie people: Hobart Tassie Devils, fu** yeah!

Season Start has now been officially pushed back to mid-January 2021
The main reason for pushing the start of the season back to the new year is to give the clubs the best opportunity to play in front of as many fans as possible.
We will remain flexible about the exact start date

we cant go Devils. Blame the AFL. our cricket and hockey teams are called tigers. hence we have to have something new.

What’s the reason they can’t go Devils? I’ve heard that a couple of times but no reason.
AFL has copyrighted the name. They(NBL Tas) have said it is not available so take their word for it with my lack of legal knowledge.



it is used in our underage program. perhaps further on but lets be honest.

Stupid AFL. Basketball had it first.

Didn’t mind Timbers, am very meh on the rest. Tasmanian Islanders would’ve been ok, I thought.

I'm so rarely right I have to crow about it when I am.

Now I'm going for Tridents. If that's the next to fall I'll retire as killing off the first three.

Realistically I'm with those of you who are saying this just isn't working.
And Pride is registered by the NBL. Just admit it and stop dragging it out. You've already decided. Stop it. Now.

Jackjumpers in the top 3?

Just cancel it. Call it off. This isn’t working.
Just for this they don't deserve an AFL team either.

You joke but they already killed off Illawarra from the Hawks, You think tradition is going to save you from becoming the Perth Stainless Steel Ovens?
