Well in the article referenced it did say that Hawthorn is reconsidering it’s commitment in Tasmania subject to the agreement placed before them.Question then why is it that Jeff Kennett is trying to negotiate a contract beyond 2021 does he not know these things that you do??
In 2010 Kennett did indicate in a letter to the membership that the financial benefits of playing in tasmania is not to dissimilar to the options available in Melbourne.
Of course Hawthorn has a $110m development it needs to somehow find funding for, the Tasmanian agreement is safe and has been stable for near on 20 years.
No doubt it’s important but it’s important not to over state. That said, it would be nice if Hawthorn could enjoy a similar distribution to the one enjoyed by the Saints
