Well...it’s not good...

perhaps they can abbreviate it down to ‘Jacks’ eventually?

Tassie Jacks?

That’s not too bad?

Kinda like how nobody calls/called the Sonics ‘The SuperSonics’ or the Knicks the ‘Knickerbockers’?

I’m clutching at straws here.

I'm in. Not sure about them writing it as JackJumpers instead of using two words, but we can work on that.

My second team is officially the Tasmania JackJumpers.

Later generations will automatically assume their full name is the Tassie Lumberjacks.

I actually googled them and they live in every state pretty much. But for some reason Tasmanians have given them special status.
So I assume it's only us who were endlessly tormented by them as kids? I wasn't allergic to the little bastards originally, but I got stung so often that one day I ended up being allergic, hospital stay and everything.

Anyway, I think it's a terrific name and has actually made me interested in the team, and I'm not into basketball at all.

Of course you'd be interested in a name featuring the word "jack" in it Father Jack
