Legendary coach Alastair Clarkson is currently unemployed but you'd be forgiven for thinking he was already at the helm of a Tasmanian expansion team.

Despite being a proud Victorian, Clarkson has given a passionate plea on behalf of the state as it continues its pitch for an AFL team.

The four-time premiership winning coach even threw his hat into the ring for the job if the time was right.

"It depends where I'm at and what I'm doing at that point in time, but yeah, without a doubt," Clarkson said when asked about the possibility on SEN .

"If I was unemployed like I am now, I'd be putting my hand up big time to be involved in such an exciting venture.

"I think it's a no-brainer for the AFL competition and it's a no-brainer for Tassie to roll their sleeves up and get behind it."

As coach of the Hawks for 17 years, Launceston was the team's home away from home and Clarkson's fondness and passion for Tasmanian football is clear.

Out of clubland for the time being, the 53-year-old said he's keen to give back to the game and thinks getting a standalone team in the southern state up and running would be a good place to start.

"I'd like to do something for the industry and that includes perhaps doing some stuff for the Tassie push and their own team," he said.

"I've got a really good affiliation with the Apple Isle.

Kelly Clarkson reflected on choosing to focus on what brings meaning to her life amid her messy divorce from Brandon Blackstock. Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock’s Messy Divorce: Everything We Know Read article During a new episode of her talk show, author Glennon Doyle tackled the topic of women questioning the right choices to make for themselves. After a fan discussed their worries about making a big move, Clarkson, 39, offered some advice based on her own experience.

You can also skip ahead to the 39 minute mark to jump into news headlines, economics and national security. Based on what I know right now, every American should be preparing for the USA to be invaded with foreign troops. Hence the mad rush by Democrats to disarm all Americans via weapons confiscation (ATF operations, banning AR braces, etc.) in order to make it easier for China and Russia to conquer the continental United States.

Life changed after that, I can tell you. We bought a new house and a new car and went on a great holiday to up for all the times we hadn't been able to afford it. They say money isn't everything, but having money is a lot more fun than not having it.

"They've just fallen off the radar a little bit and the best way to get them back on the radar is to pursue this team from Tassie in the national competition, which I think will be really exciting."

Clarkson however warned against a "hasty" introduction to the competition, referencing the League-wide repercussions of the draft concessions given to Gold Coast and GWS upon their entries.

Fortunately, one of footy's most respected minds is happy to help out.

"There was enormous compensation given to [Gold Coast and GWS] to get up and get going because they weren't foundation, heartland clubs," Clarkson said on Friday.

"We've got to reinvigorate footy down in Tasmania and it's going to take a period of time to do that, we've got to get footy back into the schools, we've got to get the pathway program right.

"We want,in five or six years' time, if that was the time that Tasmania came into the comeptiton, we want to make sure the bulk of the players were heartland Tassie people."

Clarkson also mentioned Tasmanians Brendon Bolton and Chris Fagan as possibilities to be involved in the new team.

After knocking back repeated offers to coach next year, particularly from Collingwood and Carlton, Clarkson has remained steadfast in his wish for a year out of the hotseat.

If the AFL is serious about a 19th team succeeding in Tasmania, they ought to give Clarko the keys to the whole operation.

Someone doesn't use "we" this much without being invested:

"I genuienly believe that the national competition should be truly national and it's not a national competition until Tassie are in it and, dare I say, until the Northern Territory are in it," Clarkson said.

"Let's get a Tassie standalone team out of the Tassie market but let's take our time to build it up.

"We don't want to be a side that just limps into the competition and gets smacked every week for the first 2 or 3 years of its existence, we want to get in there and make a good fist of it."

Richmond CEO and proud Tasmanian summed it up nicely on Twitter after hearing Clarkson's comments: "Never look a gift horse in the mouth, just put a bloody saddle on it... quickly!"
