Mike, how weak to think that kids sport is so dependant on their parents losing all their wages down a slit in a computer screen each week. What happened to fundraising that brought community's together. !! Da ! have you even got a brain.

Why not the whole hog, and close the pub down.More people die from drunk driving each year than from pokies.At some stage someone needs to take responsibility for their own actions. Drunks are responsible for themselves, as are gamblers.No doubt sports funding in the area will also find the local pub funding will dry up. Now there, the kids etc playing sport wouldn't even know where the funding came from, but much local sports funding (including juniors/kids) has been financed through likes of local pub pokies.
