Cool I’m in, does that mean we get to write up our own heathen list?

Israel Folau to fight Rugby AU sanction

Cool, whats that one, I might convert?. Mine says I have to start at 7.30. 🙂

Israel Folau to fight Rugby AU sanction

I think God should defend Izzy at the hearing. Accountability is critical here. 🙂

Can I have a dollar for every time I’ve seen that comment please. Like Izzy, I could also retire. 🙂

Nigel Owens weighs in on Folau debate

Might be your human nature, I’d say Nigel Owens human nature would be that he would rule fairly, as he’s said. I don’t think he’s lying.

Nigel Owens weighs in on Folau debate

Come on Ben if he were allowed to keep playing after this he would be doing this every day, five ten times a day. It would be RA saying go ahead do what you like. He may be conveying his religious beliefs but he is doing it in a way that belittles others.
A sacking here is nothing, its just a short term rugby contract that Folau and no one else is prepared to put at risk.
And if Folau says if it costs him his job so be it, he doesnt think its a huge punishment obviously.
Fits the crime? Easily.
Get rid of him so the massive distraction he is causing fans the RA the world cup and even his own team mates can move on.

Izzy, you're a complete...

hmmm, bit selective there methinks, be a lot more on that list if that is the case, though neither is topical, one more than fifty years old in fact, and I’m the one that needs to catch up.

Okey dokey. 🙂

Izzy, you're a complete...

Oh please, its ok to tell masses of people theyre going to hell and not ok to call that person a jerk? Wake up and get with the real world.

Izzy, you're a complete...

Cheers mate, I think a lot feel that way now and its being discussed very widely, here and overseas though obviously mainly in rugby circles. For me its similar to a lot of the debate going around the trump dramas, where social media has also stirred the pot up, merely because individuals can now get an unedited version of their views across to many people and people being people, theyve all got opinions.
But taking a step back as youve mentioned has got to be the way to go to avoid being dragged through the apparent dramas unfolding on social media when largely there really arent many, until you get the christchurch thing, the nutters. Folau is an interesting case in that he probably desperately means well but is just naive to the point of not really knowing or worse, caring, how stuff works in the minds of others and has misfired.
Very interesting but i think its now rin its course and is overblown, but as you say, medicine for us all later. 🙂

The parable of Israel Folau and the tax collector

Bldy knees, a plight on the sport…

Damian McKenzie set to miss World Cup after All Blacks confirm ACL injury

Im sure I had DMac at FB in my original post but anyway…
A Smith
Barrett
Nonu
Goodhue
B Smith and Reiko wings
DMac at FB

I dont think theres a backline anywhere to match that.

Yeah gotta wonder what his legacy will be… any out of work comedians want some new material? 🙂

The parable of Israel Folau and the tax collector

This has gone beyond a joke. He refuses to back down from his comments?
Millions would give their right arm to secure a four million dollar rugby contract and hes ok with risking it all to instead use his profile from the game to belittle others. He should add morons on his list and jump on the hell train.
Get rid of him, get on with the rugby things that matter. No more Folau articles please. Hes a waste of space, and sure looks like a clown to an athiest.

The parable of Israel Folau and the tax collector

Yeah gutted if he cant make it. He and beaudy are unique in terms of playmaking, THE two most creative runners and playmakers in the game IMO.
I had a backline of
A Smith
Barrett
Nonu
Goodhue
B Smith and Reiko

Mouanga, tjp, alb or crotty on bench.
I think thats the best backline we have in terms of full on attack, multiple playmaking options and leadership.

We lose dmac, ben S is certain FB now and we need a right winger. Bridge? Naholo?

Hansen wont be happy with that.

Exactly Fionn and nonus given them three years to show they can. None has had the impact nonu has at either level in this short time nonu has with the blues. None can pass better. He doesnt need to prove a whole season, just 60-70% of three key matches.

Super Rugby team of the week: Round 9

Great match, thats what rugbys about. Had everything. I thought the same with last weeks Highlanders Canes match. The players sure know theyre in World cup year cos some are playing out of their skins at the moment.

Nonu was outstanding again and for me nails 12 at World cup time. Bar injury I think he’ll get even better, then probably collapse about mid October.

I think the other sides are fortunate Blues dont have a world class 10 as that would mean a sharper attack and geez DMacs are tougher little bugga, throws himself at everything, hope the knees ok.

For an eighty minute rugby match cant as for a lot more than that. Quality rugby from both sides.

The Chiefs win a thrilling battle

If you can hack a burning furnace for all eternity how could that be bad? You dont get as good on earth, where you can get love, life, scrumptious food, sport, holidays, fame, power, peace etc etc.

and hell in a burning furnace gives you eternity?

Think their sales pitch could be upgraded 🙂

Israel Folau digs in for the fight of his professional life

Oh gee, thats a great christian for ya. Is bleeding a sport dry on his list?

Israel Folau digs in for the fight of his professional life

And the irony of it all, looks like its Folau himself thats the only one who’ll be doing anything like repenting over all this. After telling the masses to behave, he ends up with exactly that.

Karma in full motion. 🙂

Oh youre such a rebel 🙂

Israel Folau does not deserve the sack

Yes that view is really a twisted one. ‘Hey, I can post a list, but I certainly dont agree with it or associate my own beliefs with it’.

Yeah right, jog on.

"Do not judge," said Jesus: An open, personal letter to Israel Folau

I think we can assume the impact of this is not positive, ….pretty confident of that.

Israel Folau does not deserve the sack

Oh look sin is just another version of hollywood. Cowboys and indians, heaven and hell, cops and robbers, goodies and baddies, jedis and the republic. Gotta be a goodie, gotta be a baddie. If everyone on izzys list repented theyll find a new list. Entry to the club must come at a cost. Theres gotta be an us, and theres gotta be a them. Not everyone can walk around with a halo, what would be the point. Nope you need baddies to make the halo mean something 🙂
