Don't see any problem with accepting sponsorship from Ladbrokes but didnt the R.F.L accept the Stobart deal because they didn't want to go with a gambling sponsor who was going to actually put money into the game?
Wasn't the Betfair deal reported to be about £450,000?
No issue with it being Ladbrokes,
From whats come out it doesn't seem to be as big as the Carnegie deal was 2 years ago (signed 8 years ago) which isn't particularly encouraging.
Seems pretty 'RL' to be worrying what light the sponsors show us in, its how much they are paying that is important;
(except pay-day loan companies, who are ####)
Even if it's less than the Carnegie deal, 8 years ago was 2007. It's a different financial situation today as opposed to back then
