I think OP is trying to be helpful to other consumers who aren't aware of this fact.. I wasn't. They are trading under different names in a bid to mislead due to their shocking reputation not sure why u assume this is so common knowledge? Or why you find it funny

Well looking on wikipedia they bought Lillywhites in 2002 and just kept the brand name of Lillywhites for some of the stores. Its funny because this happened 15 years ago (well before the **** company was outed for being a **** company) and is fairly normal practice for some takeovers and hardly the conspiracy theory that the OP is suggesting by calling it a cover name!

I'm not defending Sports Direct in any way as I have always thought they were **** company selling crap to the masses :)

Longsdale? Is that a knock-off of Lonsdale, like "Krappa"? :)

Hardly a cover when it states that its owned by sportsdirect.com retail Ltd at the bottom of each web page.
