The Devils... a side without passion?
Only saw a very little bit of today's game, but what do VFL followers think of 2006 version of the Tassy Devils? Not sure if its the alignment, but the side certainly doesn't seem to be playing with the same intensity that they have in recent years. I realise they have had a lot of injuries, which no doubt upsets team stability.. but they still should be doing far better than they are. Whats the cause of their decline this year?

I was also shocked by Tassies pathetic and spiritless game today I dont think the half hearted alingement with the failing North FC is helping one bit to improve football in the apple isle. With out of form AFL so called "stars" like Rawlings and Hay struggling to get a kick affecting the rest of a once proud team these things can spread like a cancer through any team resulting in the form Tassie displayed yesterday.

Sold thier soal,Standalone and proud last year,giving tassie kids a go. Should be out of comp next year or put in new managment and go back to a state team not this mix and match crap they have now. Do the Nth Melb players even know the names of the Tassie players,i think not.

All the alignments have taken time so not prepared to write it off at this stage. Frankston were fired up after losing a few games in a row and Tassie have always struggled in Victoria so not sure that the North players are Tassie's biggest problem, the notable exception being John Hay. Never seen a player drop away so quickly, he needs a few weeks away from the game so that he can train hard, get on a diet and turn up in acceptable condition for VFL standard football. He wouldn't get a game at a stand-alone club in his current condition.
