BBC news just had a piece on the scourge of betting amongst young Africans. The report was from Kenya and Sport Pesa was plastered everywhere. Not great PR.

Is anyone bothered by having a rather nefarious company as out sponsor? Think betting advertising will ever be banned?

I'm not keen on having a betting company as our main sponsor, I think it's short sighted and seems out the wrong image.

We've mostly had shit sponsors.

The way the world is going will probably lead to these types of companies being banned from shirt sponsorship anyway.

Do any of the big UK bookies sponsor any clubs? I know they don't in the Premier League; anyone any idea why not?

We were sponsored by an alcohol manufacturer for a decade or more.

A betting firm is no worse in my eyes.

I'm sure they'd be all over it if it made financial sense for them

Pretty sure Bet365 sponsored Stoke in the Premier League.  I imagine the reason it's not more common is that it might not be good business sense to be associated with a club which would result in lots of people not using you because of rivalry.

My personal view is that betting sponsorship and more specifically TV advertising needs to be stopped, or at least dialled down from the level it's at now.  No problem with betting, but it's mental how ingrained it is now.

I think Stoke's chairman owned Bet365.

I was really referring to the big high street bookies. They don't seem interested in getting involved in football at all. Is it too expensive for them?

When you compare it to countries where itís not allowed (eg the US) and then you watch our TV and see all the ads, it actually feels a little sinister.

They tweeted pictures of arsenal players scoring against us last season on twitter, they had to apologise when our fans kicked off about it, think they've done it a few times

Just don't like sharing a sponsorship with Hull City in all honesty

Considering how much emphasis the club has on giving to the community and charity, it is a surprise that we have such a taboo main sponsor.

It feels a bit naughty but I can live with it. Like knocking one out thinkin if ya mateís mum.
