Admiration for the Players boldly taking a stand

Despite this, the AFL went ahead and signed another 5 year deal reportedly worth $50 million, to allow gambling behemoth BetEasy to continue pushing gambling ads down the throats of fans, families and kids!

I greatly admire the AFL players who boldly took a stand against gambling advertising this week which resulted in more than 1200 emails to the AFL Chair.

Despite this, the AFL went ahead and signed another 5 year deal reportedly worth $50 million, to allow gambling behemoth BetEasy to continue pushing gambling ads down the throats of fans, families and kids.
Maybe the AFL think that the only people they are answerable to is the corporate bookies who line their pockets.

Not the players.

Not the fans.

And certainly not the kids who will grow up believing this is a normal part of the game.
Sports gambling advertising should be banished to the same box as smoking and alcohol advertising.
