Tasmania’s new AFL team aims to create All Blacks-like legacy through jump shooting

2 min read

Tasmania’s new AFL team is committed to creating an All Blacks-esque legacy through their pullovers, with a map of Tasmania being a popular choice for the front and center of the jersey.

Tasmanian AFL Club President Grant O’Brien cited New Zealand’s famously successful rugby team as an example of the kind of culture he hopes to create that supporters of the new team can be proud of.

“I’ve always seen the opportunity for this club as being like the All Blacks,” he told SEN.

“The pullover is known to signal and symbolize the association with the All Blacks.

“It’s respected that it can’t touch the dressing room floor.

“It’s a flag for the club. I think our Tasmanian sweaters reflect that.”

The club has yet to finalize the design of the pullover, which will be voted on by potential fans registered on its website.

But the results of the poll are likely to confirm what O’Brien already knows.

“A couple of months ago we got some AFL legends together in Melbourne and asked them this question – what should it be?

“‘You are the keepers of the jump shot, what should the jump shot be?'”” You are the keepers of the jump shot, what should it be?” Without exception, they believe what the team should have used in Game 1 (the jump shot map), which coincides with my opinion.”

Tasmania’s entry into the league was conditional on the construction of a $715 million stadium on the Hobart waterfront, but this was met with strong political and community opposition.

Tasmania’s uniform and team name will be unveiled early next season.

Former Australian Rugby League boss Gillon McLachlan has previously said the Devils, used by Tasmania’s youth team, made the most sense as a club nickname.
