Jaime Munguia and Dennis Hogan lock in showdown

It’s now official that Australian-born Irishman Dennis Hogan (28-1) will get his second chance at winning a world title when he faces undefeated Mexican Jaime Munguia (32-0) for his World Boxing Organization (WBO) Super Welterweight Title in Monterrey, Mexico on April 13.

Yes… Good ol’ channel 9 spinning their fake news.

Can Phil Gould really call his time at Penrith a success?

It wasn’t the low blow that stopped Kahn. It was his defeatist mentality that stopped him.

A very good perspective.

Israel, please shut up about God – oh, and happy Easter!

Body shots are the most destructive punch to be hit with.

Valid points. Back when I was a reasonably keen RU fan; France beating the kiwi’s in the 1999 WC was just craziness at the time.

Not sure how France’s 43-31 win at the 1999 WC didn’t make the list…

Perhaps he’s come to his senses now and decided to stand up for what is right.

For him to just walk away, sends the wrong message to not just the PC brigade; but also to others that have a right to air their religious beliefs without fear of persecution and punishment.

Sure, just having a contract doesn’t give you the right to selection, correct. But in the case that IF wins, and is not selected; there isn’t a high court on the planet that wouldn’t see through any bs excuses/lies as to why he wouldn’t be picked. It would come down to the balance of probability; and there’d be no grey area in this one because we have:

– the all-time Super Rugby try scorer, 3x John Eales medal winner on a $4 million contract
– a coach that’s indicated he’s unlikely likely to pick him if it’s deemed he’s entitled to express his religious
– laws that state you cannot discriminate against someone because of their religious beliefs.

It’d be a pretty straight forward case.

Not selecting him because of his religious beliefs and expressions is illegal.

Rude.

Is this mid-game interview with Luke Hodge a bit over the top?

Know the difference between religious speech that is hate speech; and religious speech that isn’t.

Izzy, you're a complete...

Enough out of you! I’m only up to article 300 so far.

Israel Folau, what the hell?

Is it IFs right to change the way he see’s and deals with things; or is that another thing you won’t tolerate while standing on your self made moral high ground?

A “diverse, 2019 Australia” is a very interesting spin in the context of your article. Or is public opinion the deciding fact of what is, and what isn’t “diversity”?

Israel Folau, what the hell?

Wrong. It’s been stated already by source’s with actual knowledge of the contract that IF refused any clause restricting his expression of religious beliefs; and RA were fine with that.

At odds with the values of RA, yes. Simply because they’re different, doesn’t mean any of these values are wrong. What a society of “tolerance” we now live in.

Izzy, you're a complete...

I’m not religious at all. But I think religion has done so much more good for society than the opposite. Have a look at where society is going, now that religious beliefs are constantly ridiculed and disrespected.

If you have children; ask yourself this: would you rather your children grow up in society asit currently stands; or, or the more tolerant, decent society of 20-30 years ago?

Ahh, the sweet science. There’s something I could talk about for days on end!

No, no champ. I’m not religious at all; but I can accept that we aren’t all the same, and IF is entitled to believe whatever he likes without ridicule, punishment and name calling. That’s how mature people handle him…

Izzy, you're a complete...

So, as long as they “keep it to themselves”, it’s ok. Ah yes, “inclusiveness”.

“Inconsitency of the leadership” is implied in the JDB case. The disgraceful way they’ve treated JDB is also mentioned in the article…
