Yep, was going to say something similar. Find it quite hard to see the shirts as objects in isolation; also to think about home shirts without aways. If I see Packard Bell I always think of the away ones first for some reason.

And in breach of FA rules as the sponsor is (way) too big.

Defo disruptive marketing by PP. It'll change. Maxing out the coverage.

talking of shits. how come we had unibet on the front today and not 32red? they're both betting companies, so... :scratch:

edit, typing this a penny dropped, it seems they're both part of the same 'kindred' group, so i guess that 32red isn't available in Oz, but unibet are, hence the swap.
increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.

Dog botherers have no sponsor next season. From being a laughing stock to actually being the envy of a lot of teams by not having a shit sponsor. It was a stunt by paddy Power as part of a campaign to have clubs have no sponsors on shirts

Kindred is correct, Unibet are a Swedish company that's based in London, they changed their name to Kindred Group a few years ago, but have been Unibet in Sweden for a couple decades at least (predating internet betting). I didnt know they owned 32Red before the name appeared on our training kit.

“As part of the new agreement we are also excited to announce that Unibet branding will be displayed on our training wear as well as on the pre-season playing kit that the team will be wearing in Australia for our two exciting friendly matches.

To be more accurate, they almost certainly do have a sponsor, namely Paddy Power, but there is no requirement to feature the logo on the shirt. (Ie PP will have paid a truck load for that ‘stunt’)
Haven’t been to the whatever it’s called now stadium in a while but I’d be surprised if I didn’t see a raft of PP paraphernalia around the place.
As for the campaign to lose shirt sponsors? Somewhere a long way behind safe standing, beer in away ends, and “£20’s plenty” in terms of matters I give a damn about.

I'm with Devi. If I travel to watch these under performing cunts in a highly dense public place then I demand access to some sort of legal buzz :viking: :rambo: :pale: :puker:

As someone pointed out on the Twatter, they’re - like us - still sponsored by the kind of bastards who rinse the fuck out of gambling addicts who don’t have the money to lose. That they happen not to have stuck a few letters on a shirt is neither here nor there really.

I think it's all part of a larger game about regulating the betting industry anyway. I think it's Ladbrokes who are aggressively pushing to ban gambling advertising in football, because a) it makes them look like good guys b) that reduces the pressure on them in other areas ('oh but look we're doing this nice thing, so ignore the other stuff, yeah?') and c) by leading on it, and shaping how that 'regulation' works, they can make sure it still works for them anyway. So there's a sort of anti-sponsoring arms race going on with betting companies to see who can come out of any advertising ban in best shape, and I'd wager (yes) this is one of PP's angles here.

Looks like the new away may be Kappa's first big fail. I'm seeing grey with pink trim and black shoulders online. Horrible error if true

Maybe they saw the good reception the bus-seat effort got last year and decided to be evern braver? It's awful, though, isn't it. Hopefully it'll get binned off once we release some money-grabbing third strip.
