Dillon's first headache. ;-)

PS - Re name: Tassie Devils, Tassie Timberwolves, or Tassie Terrors anyone? Or...??
Not really because gather round was signed for 3 more years so 2027 at this stage there is no gather round

And it has to be Tassie Devils, farrrk warner bros
when they play melbourne it will be devils versus demons , too similar for mine , probably schedule them to play on a full moon at night lol

Yep. That should f***r*k up the artificially-created virtual State Camry Crows team.

The Camry Optus Crowies have just got no shame playing suburban teams from bleak town in their VFL.

A devil is the personification of evil. A demon is a malevolent supernatural entity. They are not the same.

I think you're confusing a Tasmanian Devil (which is a native animal) to an actual Devil. QED ;-)

probably no different to all the other professional sports, and I think Dimma walked away because he didn't want his name tarnished at a club he has done so much for, surely he will land at a club next year

Trial by media and portrayed as guilty but investigations show no adverse actions by Alastair Clarkson, Chris Fagan or Jason Burt. Surely these three should get compensation.

It may still be a matter for civil court I believe, but just goes to show how easy it is to manipulate media via "leaks" and smear people under the guise of "guilty till proven innocent". THE AFL has backed itself into a corner such that any indigenous issue arises, they will jump to their defence, apologise before even knowing wtf is going on.

Potential Grand Final winners (according to those radio FiveAAFL All-Sports gurus) - the artificially-created Camry Crows went down to some no-hopers called Golden Coast.

Wonder if they’ll review their ambit predictions?

It's a mickey mouse format but anyone who's near the top half has the potential to win it.
