You have to admit, if the media didn't make this into the huge thing it is now; no one would question Rooney wearing 32. They are making his name synonymous to gambling by posting it everywhere.

My favourite thing from the Bishop of St Albans is how he claims to have spoken to two families who will not let their children watch football as they do not want them to be primed for gambling...

Who are these people?

Morons...

I mentioned in another thread that today's Daily Mail there is an excellent article by their chief sports writer on all this and very pro Derby

A couple of things to pull you up on here...

Firstly, The Daily Mail don't write "excellent articles".

Secondly, if The Daily Mail are on your side, that's not a good thing. It probably means you're doing something evil.

Bit of a generalisation,eh?ūüėČ

Rabble rousing hurrah for the black shirts aside, even the mail has the occasional worthwhile bit of journalism or opinion piece.  I don't think any of the daily newspapers are really sufficient quality for the cover price these days. (coming from an instinctive guardian reader - for the price of a cup of coffee every day I can not give the graun any money and have a cup of coffee)

Their Children are probably better of gambling, smoking, drinking and watching football than¬†going to church....they hardly have the best reputation in that department ūüė≥

How ironic that a number of clubs in The Sky Bet Championship are questioning the tie up with 32 Red and the Rooney transfer....Life’s one big lottery I guess..!

My father-in-law is a vicar.... I might wear a Rooney 32 shirt to his church and see if I get attacked by any of the congregation.

As I read somewhere yesterday, these are the same newspapers who give out a free Cheltenham Races supplement which has been padded out by betting company adverts

Ah but that's the difference. Horse Racing is the sport of kings they don't gamble they wager

So alcohol and tobacco companies have been banned from shirt and competition sponsorship and inevitably, betting companies will be next. But they will replaced with car manufacturers and food suppliers who aren't exactly exempt from air pollution or sugar dependency/obesity.

Maybe the church will end up as main sponsors

Tell the congregation that for every Rooney 32 shirt sold, 32Red will give a fiver towards the new roof. The following week they will all be wearing it!

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.

It seems someone is talking baalocks.

Its his squad number nothing else.

Will they be monitoring the situation with all other clubs sponsored by 32 red to see if they have a number 32 in the squad? People are just making things up.

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.

 

Preston up in court as well  , they've got Adam ORielly wearing number 32
