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.

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

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. 🙂

Israel Folau digs in for the fight of his professional life

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 🙂

The tragic tale of Israel Folau

Oh? Is Quade back? First Id heard.

The tragic tale of Israel Folau

Exactly, why does king james need a ‘version’ if it doesnt change? Copyright breach? Can heaven sue?

The tragic tale of Israel Folau

Heres the only clean out I can see…

The Folaus were out and Izzy left his page open… someone decided to play a trick on Israel for not doing his share in peeling the potatoes…

Does that work? 🙂

By sacking Israel Folau, Rugby Australia showed what true leadership looks like

Gosh Blues have lost the last 14 vs the Chiefs…say whaaaaaaaat I hear you say….
Time to fix that one surely but sure wish theyd played them before the Chiefs got on that plane and found some magical elixir across the southerns seas somewhere. (Well the did beat them something like 58-10 pre season in Kaikohe, but I digress).

Who else is playing again? 🙂

Super Rugby Round 9: A little too obvious?

unfortunately sad, but true.
Now this is been picked to bits and everyones had their say, at some point you gotta (well you dont have to) feel for Folau in what really must surely be an excessive level of naivety on his part.
I mean, he just had to ‘not do that’…

By sacking Israel Folau, Rugby Australia showed what true leadership looks like

True leadership?

Better late than never more like it.

When Folau did his first one he got wet bus ticketed and many said here it’ll die down as other stories make this fish and chip paper and no one will learn a thing.

Well, here we are…fish and chips anyone?

By sacking Israel Folau, Rugby Australia showed what true leadership looks like

Good question, except the list has grown in the 12 months since the last…been busy?

Rugby union would be a more inclusive, kinder place without Israel Folau and his backwards views

No, but you might lose some. You might also lose non gay rugby players- those players or parents of players say hes still allowed to play this game after doing that!.

This is not the game I want (my kids) to play. This is not the example I want for my kids in sport.

And that reflects on AR, hence their action.

By sacking Israel Folau, Rugby Australia showed what true leadership looks like

Nope, merely suggesting how one manages to reconcile denegrating large groups of peoples behaviours with ones own behaviour. The person with the biggest single impact of the authors behaviour will be his partner, bar of course the unfortunate impact on any individuals that feel they have been traumatised by this.

Israel Folau does not deserve the sack

‘ almost every try he scored could have been scored by at least one other player ‘

but…they weren’t.

Maria was and still is one of NZ’s best goal attack for years, and gave up her NZ based career to support Izzys by moving to Oz, and she still retains her ability to play for NZ in test matches.

You really thing there was mutual discussion about the potential impacts of this and they were both ‘fine’ with any potential outcome.

Puh- leeease,

Israel Folau does not deserve the sack

Woosh…

And even if he were to get a contract we assume hes covered this off with his partner, that she will leave being very successful professional sport to live in France because he has a fit of homophobia plus? Folau is touting that others should change their ways, does that include making responsible decisions for the support of ones own family or is that irrelevant? Family support and protection doesnt matter, not being on the list does?

Israel Folau does not deserve the sack

No netball in France, cant cut off the main income stream…
