End NZRU sanctioned TAB advertising

Rugby is an inherent part of New Zealand culture. The All Blacks are put on a pedestal and are expected to set an example for others to follow. As such, they need to be mindful of the example they are setting. When the NZRU allows the TAB to advertise their odds in a lengthy segment just prior to the Haka they are sanctioning a harmful product. It is no longer ok for tobacco and alcohol companies to sponsor and covertly advertise through rugby - gambling can be just as harmful. It is time for change!
a recent study found 2.5% of New Zealanders are experiencing significant gambling related harm and a further 5% experience some harm. Each person with a gambling problem affects on average 5-10 other people, often families and children (Problem Gambling Foundation). This makes the problem a large one affecting many New Zealanders and the NZRU and TAB need to be challenged on it.
