Former Collingwood premiership star Ala Didak will pull on the Latrobe jumper on Saturday night when the Demons take on Smithton under lights at the Latrobe Recreation Ground. The two-time All-Australian 2006 Copeland Trophy winner has also expressed his desire to join Tasmanian State League club Glenorchy for a one off game.

The 31 year old was Collingwood's leading goalkicker in 2010 when they claimed the flag, Didak flew into Tasmania Thursday early to acquaint himself with his new teammates.

Latrobe President Rick Slatter was contacted by Alan Didak about the possibility of joining the club for the one off game, it's also reported he has contacted Glenorchy President John McCann, as has former teammate Chris Tarrant who wore the black and white at Glenorchy last season.


Didak was delisted by Collingwood last September and despite searching for a new club the 218 gamer wasn't offered one more chance to play in the AFL and was forced to retire. In his 218 game career Didak booted 274 goals for the Magpies, and some likened him to another former Premiership hero in Peter Daicos.

AFL Tasmania have announced at a special meeting Thursday in Campbell Town that all board members, and the chairman will be resigning at the AFL Tasmania Annual General Meeting in April. All 10 Tasmanian State League Presidents were on hand at the meeting, it is believed the move will be a significant step toward the AFL taking a bigger interest in Tasmania.

Tasmanian Football will now be under AFL House control with AFL Tasmania's chief executive Scott Wade will be joined by Shaun Young (TSL general manager) and Nick Probert (general manager of Community Football) as his key colleagues and only survivors of the current AFL Tasmania administration.


Wade will report directly to the national body, this will mean that Tasmania has joined Queensland, New South Wales and Victorian football, which are already controlled by the AFL. It's believed that the transition plan has been in place for the last three years, however none of the 10 TSL presidents were informed of the plans to disband AFL Tasmania.

The administration of Tasmanian football from April will be directly answerable to AFL House, after being put through the ringer the last two seasons this move may see Tasmanian football start to turnaround.

They are the most maligned person at almost any sport, and sometimes have to enforce the most confusing rules but without our umpires and referees our sport comes to a standstill. With umpiring shortages starting to slow down some sport, it might now be time for umpire hecklers to be given a chance to prove themselves.

Not only are the umpires abused by the fans during the games, but they are also given a lot of abuse from the fans. It seems that regardless of how right or wrong the umpire might be, they never seem to go a game without copping it

It's never a good feeling for any AFL player when they realise their AFL career is almost over for Alan Didak that is soon to be a reality. It could be time for Collingwood and Alan Didak to start thinking about life after football, where Didak can help teach some young players all he has learned about the game.

A playing assistant coaches role late in his career could also set Didak up with a career post football, this season Didak has only managed the two games, before he was out again with a niggling calf injury, frustrated fans starting to believe Nathan Buckley has had an agenda against Didak, but it seems the body is slowly succumbing to the injuries

I have been a fan of the AFL since I can remember, going to the football with my dad and mum with my siblings sometimes not that interested in going to the games. In the end we all became bigger fans of the game even though my sister is the only one of the family to have picked Hawthorn as a team she supports
