    Conflicts with Telstra so I don't think they will be allowed by NRL

    All I hope is that we get a major sponsor on board ASAP, some of the doom and gloom thrown around on here has made me a little nervous.

    Guy's we played as the Pepsi Sea Eagles in the Coca Cola 7's (and won it) Personally I think the NRL should mind there own business in sponsorship regards

    Agreed Ant.  I can't see why the NRL get their knickers in a knot with this issue.  I don't really think anyone is likely to change phone connections because of a football sponsorship.  Anyway vodaphone aren't into sports betting or are they?  
    Victoria's Secrets would be awesome.  Huge money in woman's lingerie.  We could get into Lingerie League as well.

    The Warriors are only allowed Vodafone due to them already having them on board prior to Telstra sponsorship

    That Centrebet sponsorship is apparently a big increase on what we are currently getting for that spot

    Centerbet would be great.  Solid, long term and highly profitable sponsorship.

    I can understand where the NRL stands on this one

    Telstra would be paying massive coin for naming rights of the competition, so naturally they wouldn't want to see a competitor in the same sponsorship market

    So is it saying we can have Centrebet (if they did decide to upgrade) on the front of the jersey and as main/major sponsors, but not allowed to be called the Centrebet Sea Eagles?

    I wonder who else is in line to sponsor us

    Telstra are a 50% owner of Foxtel along with News and PBL. Hang on don't Foxtel have the rights to broadcast the NRL on Fox Sports, and aren't News a 50% owner of the NRL ? Sounds a bit incestuous to me, someone should look at getting some independant administration into the NRL to avoid these embarrassing conflicts ;).

    You do the math as to why Telstra's exclusive advertising/marketing rights are protected.

    Fantastic.  Why not just put Winfield on the front of the jumpers and be done with it.

    Because betting agencies don't affect families as much as cigarettes do.
