It is a little difficult to get too excited about the completion of a business case for a Tasmanian AFL team when it hasn't been released.
Friday's announcement by Acting Premier Jeremy Rockliff that the report has been received was a welcome development.
What Mr Rockliff describes as "a comprehensive document" is the product of the work of the high-powered AFL Taskforce.
The business case is aimed at demonstrating, as Mr Rockliff says, "that the inclusion of a Tasmanian team will not only stack up financially, but also strengthen the AFL by making it a truly national competition".
For those Tasmanians who share the government's claimed commitment "to securing an AFL team of our own", it can be seen as a step forward.
But it is disappointing and somewhat questionable that the government should have the opportunity to "now take the appropriate time to consider".
It is reasonable to ask why the government needs to develop its response first.
Given its record of sitting on and not releasing reports, it also doesn't exactly offer confidence that the wider public will see the detail soon.
And, when it comes to the prospect of Tasmania having our own AFL and AFLW teams, the devil is very much in the detail.
One obvious question is what the taskforce has said about where the proposed club would be based and how many games it will play north and south of Oatlands.
It is not parochialism to say these matters are important; it is the reality of Tasmania.
If what is proposed is perceived as a Hobart club, then you can forget about the people of this region throwing their support behind it - no matter how it is branded.
For the club to be successful, it must be embraced by the football-loving community of Tasmania; not just by those in the capital.
Members of the AFL Taskforce would have been told this time and time again - and indeed many would have come to the project knowing it already.
How they have addressed this elephant in the room is of great interest.
Hopefully, the government will allow us to see the detail sooner rather than later.
