Interesting, you’d think Trump would have gone within a week, but here we are…

Australia decides: Who would vote for Izzy?

Explains the ‘Reds’ then. Anyone for vodka?:-)

Australia decides: Who would vote for Izzy?

When wingers starting fluffing perfectly timed high balls to win matches he will certainly be missed. 🙂

Yes, the Lord made him open it. 🙂

The Folau freedom of speech double standard

Doesnt explain why Cheika isnt also sacked then, his selections are also stuff that is unacceptable to a very large number of people. Unfortunately he is too close minded to get it, and regardless of his penalty…no wait, what penalty?, he will do it again, err, hmmm…

seems you can apply this stuff to anyone these days…and surely for sponsors like Qantas Cheika contributes more to Wallaby losses than Folau ever has, if ever. 🙂

Maybe qantas could get Folau to compete for some of the ten percent…tithes?

Even that’s an opinion. If you extract ‘Gay being ok’ out to the survival of the species, if EVERYONE were gay, and only gay, Man wouldnt last much more than 100 years, or, would have huge difficulty doing so.

I’m not saying its not, but taken literally, there are scenarios where it is most definitely not ok, one being the survival of a species.

Good point, its as though they both dont believe any of it, yet are scared of it ‘as if they do’.

Quite amusing…

I get both sides of this issue, I don’t know the solution, but I do get the issue and for me, neither is ‘right’, hence my repeating call for ‘maturity and tolerance’.

The Folau freedom of speech double standard

A response lacking in tolerance and maturity. First of all, you dont get to make the rules. You are saying you know whats right and others dont?
Really? That sets you apart then. There are wider issues here than the myopic view of both you and the writer, but…you choose not to listen…nothing will ever penetrate your closed mind. Nothing ever does and nothing ever will.
The issue is you.
Easy this free speech stuff huh?

And me… 🙂

Super Rugby Round 13: Lucky for some?

Vs the saders? Easy to say. ‘Hey, i know this is the last five minutes vs the best side in super history going for a record 26th straight home victory and we are leading, but how about chaps that we just stroll on down to their line for a change and finish it there’

Yeah, as if thats gonna happen.

The Wrap: Thrilling finishes and landmark U20 result no match for a black Audi

Its cos NZ sides never or rarely ever give up. Crusaders were relentless in that last five minutes, the pressure on the sharks heavier than at any other time in the match. You cant just isolate that out as a stat while ignoring what you saw in front of you. The sharks were ultra desperate on defence and to their credit threw everything at the saders and that drew the penalties. Nothing else.

Yes like a small apple ain’t like a big apple… pleeeease.

Even better, if Southern hemisphere rugby is showing up NZ sides at that level, regardless of the reason its gotta be a good thing.

Be careful of the poachers though…they’ll want to pick up new players more cheaply than those all vying for World cup glory and / or a contract by the end of it.

The Junior Wallabies’ result gives hope for future Bledisloe success

Its more likely the rugby, League macho fathers and their partners, and the masses of school kids that are contributing to the demise young gay kids, Folau’s got nothing on them, as theirs is based on hate, and its aimed at them directly. Folau has targeted no single individual.

Nah, these kids arent scared of what the Bible says, its what the people who are supposed to love them, befirend them are saying and thinking.

True, at least the ‘England guide to winning rugby’ …still the one pager it was from a hundred years ago is safe.:-)

Israel Folau found guilty of code of conduct breach, sanction undecided

Well, he did get you a good one there, would’ve got me and others too.:-)

In fact if anything his post has highlighted the need for support for the gay community. Its highlighted the issues and people are talking a lot more. It’s just his method isn’t appropriate. But can we say that the methods of our modern society, methods that we are told already puts them ‘on the edge’ in a way that a sportsman’s quoted bible excerpt alone is enough to tip them over.
No, there are far more people to ‘blame’ than Folau. And those that are anti gay out there for non religious reasons know exactly who they are.

Finally some good news for oz rugby. One result doesn’t exactly correlate to world domination and the relative long term abilities of both sides will be borne out further with this and the Wcup under 20s coming up. Typically NZ will leave no stone unturned on this result so how they respond will be interesting.
If we are to get any positive out of this it’s Probably good timing on NZs part if they’re to have a low with the full four years to the next World Cup.

Great news for oz youth rugby and hopefully a sign of things to come. We need oz back and humming as we’ve seen many times before.

Well to those that believe Izzy’s stance your example of youth suicide is probably a more supporting factor. Their view just might be that a teenager considering suicide is already in a hell-ish place anyway and their view is that only in repenting can they be saved. Completely warped view I agree but if you can be open minded enough to think that both your view and his are aimed at ‘saving a life equal to or worse than hell’ with love at the center of both them you can begin to understand his point of view.
You are both saying the same thing. It’s just your source of motivation and solution are poles apart, regardless of what your central belief system is.
You and Folau both genuinely think you are supporting the ‘victim’.
And you say that a Folau view might be enough to ‘tip them over’? So what is it about the non Folau view in society that is so good about supporting these kids? Yet a completely different Folau view gets the blame for ‘the tip’? Please. Can’t have it both ways. All that says is neither the Folau nor non Folau way is working. Until you find a better way, it’s hard to claim to be right on this stance.

More than the World rugby’s Rules of Rugby then?

That’s impressive.:-)

Variance? That’s bad huh? 🙂

Israel Folau found guilty of code of conduct breach, sanction undecided

Good idea, let him play, fine him every time he makes such posts and the Wallabies get a champion fullback for free, or even better, he pays them to play????????

Israel Folau found guilty of code of conduct breach, sanction undecided

Yeah, he actually is by his aligning with specific references to the Bible. He specifically said himself he was against same sex marriage. If that’s not anti gay what is?

Israel Folau found guilty of code of conduct breach, sanction undecided

Yes no single shred of evidence of regret whatsoever, he’s fighting this as though he’s right.
