...I wonder about my beloved Football Club.

New season kit announced and what has it got?

A Betting sponsor emblazoned across the shirt.

With all the focus on Brentford and it's betting addiction victim star player it just makes one wince.

I know the club has benefitted from an owner whose core is a betting business, but then the Brentford Community Stadium is the GTEC Community Stadium. A choice of sponsor that broke away from the plethora of Betting sponsors and is also a British Company.

So what were they thinking? It's going to send out globally the wrong message every time they play and poor old Mr. Toney when he returns, will have a shirt of which the irony won't be lost.

It's a club that's made massive efforts at family attendances and I have no issues with betting or gambling but like other adult vices, do think a line should be drawn.

Should an 8 year old be wearing a shirt with a betting or alcohol sponsor emblazoned on it?
