It doesn’t surprise me in the slightest that a Premier League club will strike a deal with the devil, but what never ceases to amaze me is that adults will buy and wear shirts with these logos on.
Why pay good money to walk around advertising their company for them?

Blaming supporters now?

Fair play to the supporters trust for exposing Purslow and the board for this appalling decision. Are we that hard up for cash that we need a betting "partner"? Is the damage this disgusting industry causes to our community not considered by the club at all??

Forget the transfer window, this business decision should cause a lot more concern as to the direction of the club.

The Norwich problems with the porny advertising - was that actually BK whatever they're called, or was it just some affiliate marketer doing it?

Because they're two totally different things if so.

The government has to take control of this and kick gambling ads out football.
The government took control 3 years ago; they'll sort it.

BK8 appear to have done everything a reasonable person would hope they would do, in order to prevent affiliates from engaging in behaviours which didn't fully align with their brand.

Around 500 people a year, mostly young men, commit suicide, after getting hooked on gambling by these greedy betting companies. That is why I am extremely disappointed with Villa agreeing this deal with BK8. The government has to take control of this and kick gambling ads out football.

Annual suicide figures are much higher (in the UK, at least).

Some may or may not be attributed to problems with gambling.
