‘Brookie’ gets dumped for big bucks

Rugby League Week - - News -

You can’t blame the Manly Sea Ea­gles for tak­ing up a seven-fig­ure of­fer to re­name their home ground. It’s been Brook­vale (“Brookie”) Oval since 1947 but as of this sea­son it be­comes Lot­toland. I said Lot­toland, not La La Land. Lot­toland, I would’ve thought, will be alien­at­ing many other clubs by sign­ing such a lu­cra­tive deal with the Ea­gles. And all this is hap­pen­ing just when I thought the NRL was try­ing to water down spon­sor­ships in­volv­ing booze and a bet.
