The gambling supporters all quote how responsible gambling is a bit of social fun and the heavy gamblers talk about how money goes back into the community via grants.Lets hope Dayne returns for finals at the expense of Brayden Sier... Sier get the poos and requests a trade to the Lions.
BTW, I'd be all for gambling advertising going the way of tobacco advertising. Sporting teams and competitions will find other sponsorship options to fill the hole. IIRC it was all doom and gloom when it was mooted re tobacco being given the boot and it never materialized that way in practice.
The reality is that if people had cash in their pockets they could find other fun and socialising options would increase and the gambling agencies make a few very very rich (bloody packers), and the money has very little flow in effect. Imagine instead of gambling people put their money into experiences of entertainment and dining. So many more jobs created and the dollars flow on through the economy, not just buy mega rich bastards mega toys, houses and cars that mostly sit idle and don’t creat nearly as many jobs.
