Seven West Media / Channel 7gambling advertisement during the cricket

My family and I love watching the cricket- my three young boys are avid club players and we attend several games in Melbourne every year. ...we have also lost everything, including our family home- due to their fathers gambling addiction.
As much as I understand it is a financial decision to run gambling ads during the cricket- I utterly believe the ad should also include references to it being a social and individual disease and addiction, and phone numbers for the gambling help line.
At the least, a warning at 10:23 am on a Sunday morning that the ad is not appropriate for young was not the case this morning as we settled in to watch your broadcast.
