Do you reckon there will be a Tasmanian team in the next 10-20 years?

If so how do you think they would go? Would they track better than the suns? What's the market like down there at the moment?

More importantly, what would they be called and what's the colours of the team? Also is the Tasmanian Devils ruled out because of the demons?

Only if they relocated a smaller Melbourne team....considering Tasmania is basically country Victoria afterall.

It’s a tiny market though and has very small room for growth.

Would be better off putting another team in WA.

Yeah I'm not against another WA team, would just like seeing a tassie and NT team to make it a national comp.

They are pretty footy mad down in tassie though, and a bit of noise is coming from down there regarding a state team. I think there would be more money to be made in tassie than in NT.

If they were going to relocate then you'd probably look at North or Saints I reckon, but I don't really want to see any team move states except maybe GC because who cares.

Where would a third WA team be located?

Tasmania is a realistic chance to get its own team in the future. However the NT population is far too small and declining, so has no hope of getting a team.

Two towns that hate each other sharing one team? Stupid. Give 'em two, Launceston Lizards and the Hobart Hammerheads.

The rivalry will draw crowds. If they don't draw crowds, who cares? The AFL shouldn't. Crowds for GC and GWS are low compared to other clubs yet the AFL persist with them.

Also two towns sharing one club... GWS have already done that.
