    Another sports betting company. What a surprise. Seriously, the pervasiveness of these companies is ridiculous. They're all over the place, like parasites. Oh for the days when teams were sponsored by electrical goods companies.

    But what if you wanted to take your car to France on holiday, surely you wouldn't drive all the way to Dover?

    Agreed. Cobra is so much better.

    Did the London Rubber Company ever sponsor a team?

    On a serious note, I do wonder though that we live in such a politically correct world, but we still allow open Alcohol & Gambling adverts.

    Alcohol though is only after 9 on TV if I am correct?

    In an ideal world we wouldn't have a betting company on the front of our shirts, but as I said earlier, it is what it is.

    I've been watching the golf all afternoon and Estrella was advertised every break. Maybe sky has different rules.

    And the further you drive away from Pompey, the less it smells :)

    Not quite true. It doesn’t matter how far away you are, it still smells

    :emoticon-0137-clappI like your positive attitude but seriously the morals go out the window nowadays. Clubs need money, fans and media like teams that spend it. Money is the core of football now, like it ir not.....its about survival in this league.

    Directors have to what’s best for the company. Governments make laws that create a moral environment for them to operate in. This needs legislation to stop it for all clubs and all sports

    In the recent interview with the commercial director (when he said he hoped to announce the new sponsor in a couple of weeks) he stated that shirt sponsorship from betting companies carry a 30% premium compared to other shirt sponsors. It's a no brainer financially and the sooner the Gov bans advertising for betting companies the better for everyone.

    It the smell follows you whether you go, perhaps you need to start looking closer to home
