Will they be on fan jerseys including kids jerseys? I'm sure they wouldn't have gambling on kids clothes, right?

I saw Titans have the same sponsor and their kids jersey has something different

Where's the money going to come from though? They banned cigarette advertising and that's understandable - smoking definitely kills people and places a huge burden on the health system.

The other two vices are alcohol and gambling. You could put a line through both of those and ethically we'd all be more comfortable, but then which other industries are going to support the code and clubs to that extent? Esp a code mostly supported by blokes. Might as well put a line through fast food whilst you are at it.

Then we'd have NRL - sponsored by Telstra and Bunnings and nobody else.

Nope, same as the winfield cup was never mentioned on footy cards.

There would be more questions/complaints around why the jersey is different if it was not included. I do not think having it on the jersey will have the average 8yo opening an online account.

Neds in Scotland are delinquents, hooligans. Funny name for a gambling company.
Neds as in Neddies (horses).

One of the potential problems I see is the effect gambling may have on an actual outcome of a match. If that was ever to happen, like it has in the past with cricket, then having a gambling organisation as a sponsor would not be a good look. This is of course all hypothetical.

Then we would have Bunnings sponsoring sand paper for cricket matches.

Alcohol and even junk food are separate discussions, it's too hard to fight on too many fronts. Maybe this is part of the reason its mostly supported by blokes. Alcohol consumption is on the decline and healthy eating is a huge trend, so maybe we run the risk of going the way of the dinosaurs if we don't move with the times

Back to sports betting, due to the inclusion of gambling as fronted by the likes of Joel Caine and others into the actual game coverage, kids already know the odds each week and are discussing it. That's normalising sports gambling which personally I don't see any positives in, except maybe slightly improving their mathematical abilities.

I have no issue with sports gambling but I do have an issue with its prevalence in our game and in others, the EPL is saturated with it. US sports have resisted for a long time but the legal system seems to be forcing its acceptance now

Stop signing sponsors, start signing players eg: Brooks right now!
If we don't have sponsors how do we pay for the players?
Yeah I was waiting for this post!! I’m just airing my frustration at not recruiting and retaining well. We lock away sponsors well - great part of our organisation but we recruit and retain like amateurs
No club has recruited that well this year. There wasn't that many players on the market.

You may also change your mind if the club pulls of the signing they are currently in talks with
Who is the player the club is currently in talks with? ?

I’m not into gambling - detest it actually; but being in a tipping comp gives me a reason to get excited every game

Surprised that no one has approached " Red Bull" or " Shell" for some type of sponsorship, in NRL.
