Are we cool with the Devils nickname? Bit of prison bar vibes.

As long as the Devils jumper is not Red and Blue.

There you go, the Tassie Islanders. Shut the gate 

Islanders or Devils. Both NHL teams haha.

I'm totally on board with Tassie joining and potentially a 20th side BUT would hate to see a conference system. Absolutely no need for it imo.

Not all young Tasmanian men would want to stay in tassie to play.

Some talent, not Sicily, may prefer to live in Tassie. You only need 5-6 %.

If I was choosing a new club jumper, I would be consulting an optometrist or similar to identify which colour or colours is most easily spotted by team mates in the heat of a game.

Read the "business plan". It isn't a business plan. Like most business plans to do with government money, it is a collection of fuzzy goals devoid of hard numbers. Throw in a compulsory genuflection to diversity, inclusion, jobs, community and the environment. Dan has the template. Any of the big consultancies will tick for a fee.

Warner Bros owns the trademark, Tasmanian Devil.  The AFL applied for a Trademrk, Tasmania Devils, in 2019 but it has not proceded.  This has been reported on several news sites.

I favour "Tasmanian Tigers" to ignite another team.

I don’t understand how they can own the name of an actual animal

Well, Warner Brothers have been smart enough to have the copyright of the Tassie Devil  registered as their property so if the AFL want that name it’s a question of whether, as a matter of goodwill, they will release it to the team representing the state.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Eddie Everywhere gets involved here because the current CEO of Warners is a Collingwood fan who Eddie knows well.

Haha really? Yeah, Eddie would love to play a part in this.

 

Islanders or Devils. Not a big fan of the big T on the jumper…Looks like a training jumper

 

So great that this is happening though. So happy for Hobart.

It'll depend on the goods and services for which the trade mark is registered.  AFL should be able to register if there is no overlap or if there is overlap, they receive consent from Warner Brothers.  Wouldn't imagine it would be too controversial since the WB Tassie Devil is quite different from an AFL football club.  Presume in 2019 the AFL simply decided not to bother with continuing the trade mark application

I wonder if Demons/Devils is all that different to Eagles/Hawks or Magpies/Crows or Tigers/Lions or Cats/Dogs.

I've yet to hear a good suggestion for the new team's nickname other than "Devils" and would be dismayed if they went for something nebulous like Power, Storm, Heat etc.

It's all in the detail.

It's the similar 'D' name that gets me. No issue with the Tasmania Lucifers, Anti-Christs or Princes of Darkness

since when the map of tasmania been associated with the chest? 

What is your point DC ? It's logical on the front of the guernsey. It's nothing about the chest !! It's featuring what state is represented. A T is also looks good as well.

It seems there is a long way to go before any team hits the ground. Clearly the Labor opposition is not keen on the idea their leader did not attend the announcement. The money so far announced won't go close to building the stadium. There is a lot of opposition to the idea and location in Tassie. IMO it won't happen before the end of this decade if at all.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
