Wasn't that on the leaked home top?

My bad, confirmed by Wolves!

Personally I'm more than happy that our shirts won't advertise a gambling company any longer.

Much better to be sponsored by a payment company that you can use to send money anywhere in the world anonymously.Just in case.

East- I couldn't agree more! The shocking hypocrisy in sports that cigarette and alcohol companies are banned cause of the damage they do yet allowing betting companies a free rein for as long as they have is an absolute disgrace! I know they've talked about stopping it for a while (and I suspect it will happen one day) but it should be a REAL stain on sport that it's taken them this long! Like always on these issues it just shows that morals are for sale to the highest bidder! ?

Agreed East Mids Wolf - I’m against all betting being advertised within sports. I remember a few years back a certain sports broadcaster (no names mentioned) was advertising Gamble Aware, during their ad they mentioned every single sport that you could bet on their betting subsidiary.

I'ld be happy with a more socially responsible product but the reality is advertisers in sport are when allowed gambling, cigarettes, alcohol, fast car brands, junk food to name but a few. Being as these companies do a bit of research and know their target audience I'ld venture to suggest that sports fans probably use or purchase these products and services quite a bit, maybe more so in the rest of the world than the UK. Anyway on a more constructive note Fabio's got a hat trick tonight.

Let's face it, folks, all bar one thing in excess is bad for you and betting isn't any worse than many other things. Personally, I like a bet and have had several accounts closed because of some success but was never tempted by the advertisements on Wolves shirts because my talents don't yet extend to reading Mandarin.

Old wulf- the problem is like all the vices your referring to betting can and does destroy some peoples lives. Like you it's never directly affected me (niether have cigarettes or alcohol mind) but that doesn't mean I'm going to ignore the damage they are capable of creating. Take a look at the numbers and gambling is having far worst social impacts than smoking these days, with the ripple affect for those around gambling addicts being huge.

I suppose the point is it should be all or nothing, either we accept any form of advertising vices or we don't?! Whereas at the moment what the seem to be saying is that we don't want to encourage youngsters into vices UNLESS it happens to be gambling, in which case its fine. Surely that's the height of hypocrisy, no? Also not sure what difference the language makes, you have made reference to the fact they are a gambling company so clearly the fact it was written in mandarin has made no difference to your (or others) understanding of what the product is?!
