Good.  QuickQuid was a particular low for our club (I know it wasn't a gambling firm).

Good. Take a look at football ... grounds, shirt sponsors, tv adverts. They must be 80% gambling. We should avoid being in any way dependent as they're going to be squeezed out. No bad thing in my sanctimonious view.

Nowt wrong with looking for scores at half time. More entertaining than standing in a queue waiting to be served by gaumless gibbons.

 

Fair points, but the wif-fi is shit like you've stated. Gone a bit better for Vodafone this year tbh.

Not in favour of the ban, what’s next no Ale? (Not that I drink during yet game) but it’s looking more and more like a sterilised offer to me add the kneeling and the general mee mawing for some one who’s popped their clogs  then it’s slowly becoming a place I’m less likely to visit. Today’s offer is nothing like the slap bang wallop offer of the 1970s when I fell in love with BWFC & football.

Something in that, thin end of the wedge?

What I would say though - were there betting kiosks at burnden, was it traditionally part of the matchday experience? 

I think it's right that society needs to tackle the over availability of betting as there is clearly a problem, but I understand that a quick bet before the game is probably no different to buying a golden goal type thing for the vast majority of people.

Don’t often bet at the match but I’d occasionally pick first goal scorer, Pre match at Burnden I’d bet at the bookies on manny road. It’s just a creeping sanitisation of the game and that’s why I’m not in favour.

I agree that the potential is there.

Clearly things change over time, but football has always been about passion, emotions, a break from the daily routine. It mustn't become part of the grinding norm.
