Station, Would the ABC be able to help you ??
There used to be quite a few posters on this web site whilst Tassie were competing in the VFL.
I for one miss them.

Basically when the Tassie Devils had a home game on the Saturday this was shown on ABC TV in preference to the vfl game shown in VIC.
When the devils played on either a Sunday or away the vfl game which was shown in VIC was also shown in Tassie.
If you checked the Tassie papers from all the dvils season you would be able to find out.
Not sure if they have the Mercury papers archived on line.
Maybe they do so it would be well worth a google search.
I know quite a few posters did enjoy their trips to Tassie when their teams played over there. I went to a Willy v Tassie game in Devonport in 2001. This was taped and could have also been shown on ABC in Tassie. It was also on a Sunday.
Station Hotel you might have to see if Brendan Curry has this game.
Was the Gold Coast home games televised locally ? Very doubtful but they were definately taped. They would have shown brief highlights in the local sports reports on local news.

what year did Tassie come into the VFL VFA ?

Was it 2001 ?

Tassy came to the VFL in season 2001 and played their first game at Sandy.
Sandy won that one.

The Zebs unfurled the 2000 Flag in front of the Devils ... a good welcome to Victoria

Station,
WIN TV did a few games early as they were a major sponsor & some of them were night matches which they telecast from the southern side of the ground.
Unsure about this game but you can be sure I would have been there. I would have it on tape so I will check it out.
Thanks.
