Help us win 250,000 transfer fund is the headline on the main site - with an individual prize available of 5k. It appears that the chances of winning the individual prize increase with the number of bets someone has.

I'm hardly a puritan (most who knew me during my misspent youth would find such a suggestion laughable) but I don't feel easy about the club assisting Skybet to encourage excessive gambling. Yes, I know that there appears to be a symbiotic relationship between bookmakers, high interest lenders and football clubs. I am also aware that encouragement to buy potentially harmful goods and services is rife in our society. But that doesn't make it right.
I can see a day - many years from now (if I'm still alive) - when such encouragement is viewed the same way as tobacco advertising. The sooner that day comes the better IMO.
I imagine the usual suspects may disagree with me. I've no wish to debate the issues as debating them can cause polarisation and no-one ever changed their mind over a debate on an internet forum.
I realise that my views on here sometimes feel like *beep* into a hurricane but if I see something that, at a gut level, I feel is wrong or questionable, I do have a tendency to say so.
It used to land me in trouble in my real life so I tend to restrict it to the internet these days Smile

I've linked my Sky Bet with the club.

However, as my gambling is not likely to be called excessive (probably not more than a fiver at a time) and is more for a laugh as I never win at football betting, I don't think that anyone will be in danger of me going overboard.
