Half of the Premier League’s teams will feature a gambling company’s logo on their shirts during the 2019-20 season, and that figure rises to 17 out of 24 clubs in the second-tier Championship.

In February, the Church of England’s governing body called for tighter regulation around gambling advertising.

Bigger than Jesus!

Theologians are split on the exact physical details of the messiah. Weather or not he was taller in height than Mel Morris could potentially start new religious conflicts across the East Midlands.

FWIW I think we should convert the heathen unbelievers of Bretby, Widmerpool, Gotham and Kegworth, with loving weapons of holy truth as needs be.

I'd change our mascot to Satan, mount a big 32red sign in neon letters to the side of the ground and water the pitch with holy water if it helped to annoy the church any further. 

 

Totally agree. 

And if it got us the signing that got us promoted I would call it the '32Red Stadium'. In for a penny...

Haha that article is hilarious! 

This is the (totally in touch) Bishop of St Albans... keep in mind he's talking specifically about Wayne Rooney here...

"If young footballers see a national treasure refusing to sully his personal brand"

Wayne Rooney? Sully his personal brand??? God forbid.

So, when the rumours were surfacing that Rooney was coming to Derby in a "sensational" return, everyone loved it.  One of the greatest strikers in modern English football was returning to England, everyone, including majority of Red Dogs thought it was a great story.

After the event the press return to their vicious, vindictive, spiteful little ways and turn on Rooney, he isn't even in England yet and already he has been targeted.  Did anyone notice that within hours of the rumours surfacing, Sky Sports showed a video clip of Rooney being knocked out in his kitchen? What did that have to do with the move?

Our newspapers and reporters are maggots and pond scum.  Apart from Percy, he could be the god father to my children.

Man Utd's mascot is literally the devil - you'd think the church would show more concern about a club advertising the brand of their nemesis, than this Rooney bandwagon.

Here's an 'exclusive' in The Telegraph:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2019/08/08/exclusive-derbys-decision-hand-wayne-rooney-no-32-shirt-couldbe/

It seems that the number 32 could be interpreted as advertising and a breach of FA rules -

"Under current regulations, clubs are allowed to designate "one single area not exceeding 100 square centimetres on the
back of the shirt" to any sponsor.

Advertising standards sources suggested the decision to give Rooney the 32 shirt in association with betting firm 32Red
could be interpreted by the FA as a potential breach in the rules.

Derby can only be approached by the governing body after Rooney takes the field in January, and the promotion effectively becomes live. The FA is understood to be aware and monitoring the situation."

So the FA are 'monitoring the situation', maybe a very small number or just change it to 666.

32 is his squad number. His squad number was agreed with the sponsor, but is not of itself an advertisement. I doubt anything will come from that. But papers need a story - someone at the FA said "yeah yeah, we know" hence fa are aware and monitoring the situation...

Is that the same church which (unknowingly) invested in Wonga and the same one in this article ?

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/may/09/church-of-england-put-reputation-above-abuse-victims-needs-inquiry-finds

11/07/2014 · The Church of England says it no longer has any investment in payday lender Wonga, ending an embarrassment to the Archbishop of Canterbury.

So when Capital One sponsored Forest did they investigate the goalie for breaking shirt sponsorship`rules.?

Is the National LOTTERY GAMBLING 

No, the National Lottery is an organisation that donates lots of money to very worthwhile charities.

I you think of the National Lottery as being a form of gambling, another form of Tax where people pay hundreds of pounds a year chasing the impossible dream, lining the pockets of the rich, you would be wrong.

Just doing a quick trawl of wiki. A certain Mr Stephen Wearne is registered as playing in the number 32 shirt, the same as his principal shirt sponsor 32Red (a betting company I believe?), thereby clearly contravening EFL sponsorship rules. The offending club..........

 

 

Middlesbrough. Oh dear Mr Gibson. Book em Danno.
