The club should seek out alcohol/betting companies as sponsors, whilst also setting up referral schemes (with commission) to appropriate rehabilitation and counselling services. People who get addicted will have only been addicted later on anyway, so it's a win/win to get it out of their system early on and the club can profit from the associated treatment schemes and the profits form their increased alcoholism/gambling addiction in the short term.

likewise introduce more fattening food and diet/exercise clubs.
I gamble on Golden Goals and the DT Draw. I thought I could keep a lid on it. and could say 'no' at any time but the way the GG sellers position themselves with their flashing smiles and their 'come hither' looks does make it hard to resist (well that's my excuse...)

The government only spends that tax money on bailing out Banks and bombing the shit out of countries populated by brown people. Meanwhile, I'll get a pension for a few years if I survive to 68. Or 70, depending when they put the age up again.

Taxman
Thing is tax avoidance is the government's fault anyway. They bleated on about Jimmy Carr and how awful it was but did they look to change that particular loophole? Did they fuck

Would anybody be upset if The Peel decided to sponsor the new South Stand, complete with appropriately dress female matchday hostess?

Trebor, don't worry about Gordon Brown not getting a few quid from MR he will be ok, after all he stole all the money out of my pension that I have been paying for the last 30 years

we should also get rid of that awning as it encourages people to go outside of the bar and smoke and we all know how bad that is for your health

I have to admit, I have far more problems with lots of our club donations coming from someone who cheerfully admits to minimising his tax bill, having said he'd rather it go to us than to Gordon Brown (as it was then). But then I shrug and think, 'Oh well - give us more, Mike!'

Given that we used to have a bookmaker outside the ground on match days it would be hard to take a firm line on betting adverts. That said I'd be unhappy if we had shirts sponsored by an online gambling company. Agree with Basilldon it's not in the same league as Wonga.

Oo er missus!
Through a predictably unreliable source (friend of a friend etc) apparently we are after Rhys Weston? Played with Ardley and Cox at Cardiff last seen playing in Iceland? Judging by his twitter it looks like he is on trial with a club in Malaysia. Anyone else heard anything?

If there is any form of truth he looks like ideal captain material.
Anyway, it's nice that matters like that get discussed openly on here. More understanding = a Fitter happier life :)

onwards and upwards
The club accept donation/forced to run an advert for betting. And coincidentally run a "gamble responsibly" banner somewhere on the site/matchday programme. Everyone's happy.

Seeing Surrey Bob's mention of Hereford, seems the league have shafted them with the fixtures. Interesting piece on BBC about Dag&Red travelling away by train and walking to the ground from station. Saving on more expensive coach travel.

Can anyone drop me off in Preston after the football tomorrow- public transport won't get me back in time for work?

I agree with J t D football should be banned in case some grass is damaged in the course of the game.

Grass has feeling too
While it's clearly easy to make fun of the whole thing I think that there is serious underlying point about how you deal with promotions for legal products which, if used in moderation, are absolutely fine but which - if they tend to addiction - can destroy lives and families (notably this would cover gambling and drink). I personally wouldn't agree with either an ultra-moralistic stance, banning all such promotions, or a view that morality shouldn't be considered at all. I suspect that the broadly pragmatic stance that the club seems to take in practice is the best/ only practical way forward.

The AFCW moral code is somewhere in between the Taliban and the East German Politburo. If Mary Whitehouse were still alive she'd be our President.
