Walking billboards

Maybe a desirable by-product of the Israel Folau debate will be fewer sponsors for games.

I once saw a baseball game in Yankee stadium and it was a great experience. I was surprised how little advertising was on the jerseys of the players compared to here (see photos below for a footballing comparison)
Someone told me a reason was conflicts between sponsors of the stadium, teams and individual players. In any case it made the whole game more picturesque.

Incidentally, many of the sponsors names on jerseys here represent some of the other reasons in Galatians and other places in the Bible for going to hell. I haven’t seen the names of many alcohol, gambling and usuary institutions written on the shirts of Italian football players. They tend to be manufacturers of things like mineral water, cars, or milk.

Are we becoming the addicts’ country, not the lucky country?
