It's all powered by Google, so it's powered by your personal profile, interests and history that Google has compiled. We all get a lot of Tigers ads because they are - you guessed it - targeted at Wests Tigers fans.
I've had Roosters ads appear recently and this is no doubt due to the Roosters marketing managers leveraging off the Tedesco signing.

Is it a good thing? One can make an argument either way.
Remember when you used to walk past the corner store on the way home and the shop owner would wave hello, saying "Hey, I have one of those nice cakes that you liked last time!". We would regard this kind of merchant understanding of clients to be desirable. Google kinda just does the same thing.

Re. asian/russian porn ads, this would be combination of your search history and stuff.
However I have specifically configured the service to block these kind of sensitive ones. However since you guys are saying that you're still getting them, I've just turned the notch up on these. If you see any more, please right-click over the add, copy the link URL and send me a PM with the URL. I'll then directly block it and also report it to Google.

Just get AdBlock extension for Google and enable it guys

Seriously, Adblock is free and stops a lot of stupid junk
