Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Ethical approval to conduct the study was obtained from Cancer Council Victoria’s Institutional Research Review Committee (IER 1606), using the following participant information and consent procedures. During recruitment, participants were invited to participate in an online survey about “food and lifestyle”. To avoid priming or biasing responses, no reference was made to sport sponsorship or food marketing, and no mention of Cancer Council Victoria or the Centre for Behavioural Research in Cancer were made at that stage. Participants were informed that they were free to exit the survey at any time if they did not wish to complete it. Implied consent was obtained by panel members clicking on the web link and completing the survey. On completion of the survey, participants were debriefed on the study aims and given details of the organisation commissioning the study (Cancer Council Victoria). A contact phone number was provided to participants in the event they had any questions about the study.
