AFL CEOs discuss stand-alone Tasmanian team
Bob has been a supporter of getting a Tassie AFL team for many years. He was Co-chair of the AFL Working Group to bring the AFL to Hobart (in the form of the North Melbourne Football Club) and was co-signatory to the first Funding Agreement with the AFL.
As past Chair of the TFL Commission, Bob has long argued for a Tasmanian AFL team and believes that this is a fantastic initiative and was more than pleased to sign up.
Thanks for your support Bob!
