"Neds - founded by Gold Coast-based former pornographer..."
You beauty Lions. Understand the desperation for some sponsor revenue but not exactly family-friendly to have betting ads and odds blasted over the PA is it? Think we'll steer clear of the merch this year.
Yeah agree. Not on opening a Neds account, I don't gamble, it's just a tax for the dumb. But meh, gambling isn't illegal, not a massive fan of a betting sponsor, but not the end of the world, and I'm sure it'll be a short term contract.
*Edit, tax for the dumb was just a joke. No different from any other hobby / habit, you spend the money you're not going to miss.
It is what it is. We’re in a tight spot and have to swallow a somewhat bitter pill. We’ve already had betting agencies as lower tier sponsors before, and we run a pokie den, so it’s not like we are breaking a virginal seal of purity here.
Not happy about it being on our mighty jumper but I’m not going to try and add to the club’s troubles by staging a boycott.
I think we just have to close our eyes and think of England on this one. In a few years we will be in Springfield, have more financial autonomy and be able to be choosier with who we get into bed with. Hopefully we will be further up the ladder too and have more attractive suitors.
