Lewes 'Gambling with Lives' shirt Can't Post or Reply Privately

Good to see at least some profile given to the awareness of gambling problems in football in the face of the total dominance of gambling influence in the modern game at all levels.

Lewes director John Peel added: "Sponsorship of football by the gambling industry is at saturation point and we need to recognise the harm this has caused to young adults and children and ask ourselves whether the football world was better or worse when there was no gambling advertising in it."

Really good to see this, as it is clear many lives are being ruined through gambling addictions. Many more than I was aware.
It will be interesting to see if there is any reaction from the isthmian league or Bet Victor.

I'm sure they're truly delighted. It's worth doing just to piss them off

Good for Lewes.
Perhaps Victor might feature on a bonfire come November?
