[Adam] 'They do talk about the odds.'

[Young boys playing footy]

[Adam] ‘It’s certainly a conversation I didn’t have when I was a child, but there is an association now being made between sport and odds.

They’re watching their heros on TV.

I think it’s very unfortunate that some of the retired champions of the game are being utilised in advertising forms.

Even a recent retired Brownlow medallist who has written about the perils of gambling is now on a gambling ad.

So it is quite difficult to manage I think.’
