In Sin City Sydney..
hip-hop stars Snoop Dogg and Nelly have been enjoying
their time down under in Australia. At an announced
side-show in Sydney's Star City Casino last weekend,
the two famed hip-hop stars shocked the crowd when
an ensemble of acclaimed Supafest co-stars joined
them on stage. Industry luminaries The Game, T-Pain,
Busta Rhymes, Fat Joe and Spliff Star all joined in
the fun. They wowed fans with an hour of freestyle
rapping. The show is already being described as the
biggest hip-hop show in Australian history. Star City
in Sydney is hoping to look after them again, as is
the Tabcorp owned sister casino on the Gold Coast
- Jupiters Hotel and Casino.

between the legendary Aussie NRL footy team, the South
Sydney Rabbitohs and the "partnership" with
Tabcorp's Star City Casino.
follow the recent deal between the NRL's Penrith Panthers
and Centrebet, with the teams football ground now
known as Centrebet Stadium, in a $5 million dollar
deal, tipped to secure the financial future of the
club. Other clubs and plugging into the lucrative
gambling and betting dollars, with more win - wins
on the way, but at what cost? Can NRL and betting
co exist in a sustainable fashion, without more sports
betting scandals on the way.
Stadium, PartyGaming Cricket Ground, Paddy Power Park,
Betfair Entertainment Centre?! Who know what may be
around the corner. Media
Man and Gambling911 kick a goal between the posts
with this special report...
tie ins between the National Rugby League and gambling,
sports betting et al, continue this week with South
Sydney celebrity owner Russell Crowe, tipped to present
the Bunnies' new 5-year, multimillion-dollar sponsorship
deal with Tabcorp's Star City.
press conference including Crowe has been scheduled
for the Pyrmont's Star City. Souths also yesterday
announced the bookmaker, Luxbet (linked to Tabcorp),
as a corporate partner for 2011. The online agency
will run in house tipping service Bunnybet, taking
over from Betezy, which launched the gambling website
portal as a joint venture with the Rabbitohs in 2009,
in a media campaign pushed far and wide by the Media
Man agency, which covers the sector in a fair
and balanced fashion, and known to focus on the positives,
while also doing hard nosed coverage on the potential
dangerous of excess gambling - betting.
Souths Rabbitohs deals comes only 5 days after the
Penrith Panthers announced their Australia-first venue
naming-rights contract with a sports betting and gambling
company, rebranding their home ground Centrebet Stadium
Penrith. The northern beaches based Manly Sea Eagles
will also this year have the Centrebet logo on their
jumper. No word yet what's happening to the Full Tilt
Poker logo that was on East's Rooters players shorts.
bush tucker bag of NRL - gambling news comes at the
same time that a high-profile NRL player is battling
a huge problem, dropping at least $1500 a week at
Star City. In addition, a police investigation, as
well as New South Wales Crime Commission hearings,
is not yet complete into irregular betting patterns
reported in last year's round-24 match between North
Queensland Cowboys and and Canterbury Bulldogs aka
'The Doggies' in Townsville. 'The Doggies' still struggle
to live down a football betting and sex scandal from
years ago, with the obvious sexual reference tie in
off 'Doggie style', a often preferred sexual position
Rabbitohs new commercial deals also equate to a bit
of a back down from Crowe and co-owner Peter Holmes
a Court since they proposed to to remove the pokies
aka 'one armed bandits' from Souths Leagues Club in
2007. "There is a time and a place for gaming
and I don't believe that South Sydney is the time
or the place," Holmes a Court said way back then.
The club has faced serious cash flow challenges, not
to mention a poor win rate over the past years, despite
having a club history second to none.
Souths chief executive Shane Richardson would not
comment on the Star City sponsorship yesterday. NRL
chief executive David Gallop mentioned that many of
the NRL clubs have corporate partnerships with betting
firms and the NRL itself is aligned with TAB Sportsbet,
for which that company pays a product fee of 5 per
cent of profit on rugby league punting.
operators such as PartyGaming, Paddy Power and others
are said to be keen to get in on the action, and in
the meantime the international headlines add fuel
to the fire.
agencies associated with the game must sign integrity
agreements that insist on co-operation.
on sport is as old as sport itself. We have to accept
that being able to bet on a game adds a very enjoyable
aspect to viewing," Gallop said. "The arrangements
that we now have with betting agencies put us in a
lot better position not only in terms of being compensated
for the use of our intellectual property but also
in our ability to access information about irregular
betting. We've worked hard with all the sports to
get ourselves to that position and indeed some of
the matters that have been investigated and are currently
being investigated - those investigations have only
been possible because of those arrangements. Our ability
to get to the bottom of issues
is greatly improved
by those arrangements."
however, listened to concerns that issues such as
"spot betting" were a concern, as was hard
core promotion. NRL broadcaster Channel Nine has been
criticised for the past 12 months for its commentators'
plugging betting options during broadcasts of the
terms of the promotion of gambling we do have restrictions.
Individual players can't endorse individual agencies.
There are elements that are concerning such as types
of bets and aggressive promotion."
Man' (MM tag) Gallop said he was not alarmed by reporting
of players with gambling problems. "Our players
are a cross-section of the community and there are
going to be players with social problems, be they
gambling , alcohol or drugs," he said.
