    Although I'd prefer not to be associated with betting companies seems like its the norm these days with most clubs.

    This from a club that has a player warned for consorting with a gambler & are now themselves dealing with a bookmaker.

    For mine corruption is always around the money & the bookmakers are at the center of it.

    Well at least they gave them the spot near the arse which is where this Ladbrokes belong.

    You mean when SP bookies used to fund all the end of season trips for the players and organised regular nights at brothels and the like. Is that what you missed? Me - not so much. I would rather it be all open and above board.

    Without the league club, the football club wouldn’t be where it is today...

    You have it the wrong way around. The football club started the leagues club and controls it.

    Agreed, as long as the league club is around the football club will be in a healthy position.

    And the majority of our funding comes from that leagues club, we're considered one of the wealthiest clubs because of the gambling in said area. Not sure what this says for the sport as a whole or what it's doing to problem gambling, but the NRL wouldn't exist without it sadly.

    No professional sport would exist without the support of funding from the various forms of gambling. That has been the case for decades and will most likely be the case for decades to come. Humans will always find ways to get adrenaline rushes either chemically or psychologically. Been doing it for eons.

    Not the perfect sponsor, but ar least it proves and shows our club is a desirable brand.
    Ten years ago we were giving away sponsorship space for nothing!

    image.jpeg image.jpeg Surely we could have worked this in as a front of jersey sponsor, it would fit perfectly

    I couldn’t care less if they whacked a photo of Kim Jong on the jersey as long as we win
