Martin to AFL: ‘Tell them to bugger off’

Tags: sport politics


If the AFL cannot give Tasmania a firm timeline on when we will have our own team, we should ‘tell them to bugger off’, according to Former Nationals Senator Steve Martin.

The former Senator was a passionate advocate for a Tasmanian AFL team during his time in Parliament, and is continuing to take up the fight. He says that if the AFL cannot stop changing the goal posts and give us a firm commitment, then the State Government should take their current AFL funding and give it to other sports.

Steve talks to Brian Carlton about where things are at with a standalone Tasmanian team and why he’s fed up with the AFL.
