If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away' [Henry David Thoreau]. I'm a bit of a sports addict, love competition.

In terms of player conduct, (i) his post didn’t specify any group – are you privy to the exact wording of his contract? Unless everyone who posts stuff from the climate change cult is included in this – then his contract has discriminatory clauses and can’t be enforced. (ii) modern and moral are comments on conflict. Modern society isn’t moral. And my benchmark is the bible, any moral standards of any value currently in society are biblical based. And the Bronze Age has no relevance to this discussion.

Izzy, you're a complete...

there wasn’t a first ‘offence’.

Izzy, you're a complete...

Tuc Du Nard, re-write this about the Climate Change Cult and one of their followers, it would have more credence then.

It’s not courage to call Israel hateful. It’s just a lie. There is nothing in his comments or post that is hateful. It seams to hit home and the sensitive points of many people, probably because they know he speaks the truth. He isn’t hateful, if you want to see real hate – read the responses to his comments.

This defies all logic. 1. He has yet to prove that he can manage the mid season crash that has repeated over the last few years. 2. there is hardly a rush for his signature elsewhere. 3. the biggest improvement with Dragons (as stated above) has come from a settled ‘spine’ as a result of injury NOT a coaching epiphany. 4. Dragons need to demonstrate improved tactical smarts in general play – ie. not predictable one-outs and one of the worst defending the ‘play-the-ball’ in the comp. Opposition dummy halves make cheap mileage every game. 5. One would think he should pass through the Anzac Day challenge before being taken seriously for a new contract. 6. because it’s a dumb move

Dragons re-sign coach McGregor until 2021

And won 5/8 of the year and near top B&F points last year. Yeah, he really was overrated…. They’re better without him but not for those reasons.

Eight talking points from NRL Round 5

Point 1 – pretty well on the money, Point 2 – right on the money, Point 3 – close, but in conflict with Point 1 so both can’t be all correct. Point 4 – Naaaaa, can’t agree there. The guy needs work and I don’t know that he has the time now (see point 1 and ignore point 3). Point 5 – You can’t be happy by getting satisfaction from losing small.

Five things to know before the Knights tackle the Titans

I think my comments would show I’m in line with you, I was centred on immediate events.

Legend. Sorry to see this end.

Greg Inglis announces immediate retirement from NRL

Dean,
Bennett clearly wanted to stay at Broncos. I can’t see where you got the epiphany to write this article.

Troubled waters at the Broncos: Why Bennett jumped ship

I’m not ready to agree that Robinson should be there. My granny could compete in the NRL with that roster and they made the top 4 last year on the back of some dubious refereeing (note in point the game against the Titans where every try was off a forward pass and the bunker gave a clanger to O’Sullivan). Robinson also pushes the laws and refs as much as the Storm (if not more), where Storm mastered the wrestle Roosters mastered the forward pass – especially off the ruck – and back play interference. Note chooks were doing poorly at the start of the year when the refs were on their crackdown – and then when they backed off (chooks flourished).

Are we running out of coaches?

Smith would have gone up in my estimation if he had taken matters into his own hands and kicked the ball out when the Cows were 2 down. Melbourne were well in front and it was obvious there were serious issues in back play. The ‘GOAT to be’ lost brownie points big time by taking advantage of the situation and playing on. He may be a fantastic player but seriously lacks some good qualities (including something along the lines of empathy) which was also in evidence when Alex McKinnon went down.

You make a good point, it’s probably because they relied on him too much and now other players – Hunt in particular – are picking up their game.

I’m curious Mary, will you be posting a similar article about people in sport voicing opinions in line with the climate change cult – telling us they and our world will go to hell (high temperatures, rising seas, loss of life, hell on earth etc etc) – and telling them they should keep their beliefs to themselves??

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

Josh, If you have any understanding of the Spirit of God, don’t step in the way of someone saving souls. Israel was advising of God’s judgement, not his own.

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

There is no hate in what he mentioned. He quoted a biblical passage that is free from any hate. If you want to see what hate is, just look at the anti Folau and Christophobic reactions to his comment. Now THERE is where the hated is.

Mary, his post, as I have read and understand it, doesn’t stipulate gay people. It’s the media that have made that assessment.

Well I wasn’t in the ‘know’ there so it didn’t mean much to me. ON another viewpoint, FYI, those castigating Folau are some of the same people from the climate change cult, shoving their beliefs down our throat and telling us if we don’t follow their message we will be in hell – ie rising seas, droughts, searing heat. ad nauseum… Same message, different people. If you have an issue with ‘hypocrisy’ start with that mob.

Tah-Tah, Izzy: Rugby Australia, NSW Rugby confirm they'll sack Folau

Not sure where you are going with that.. I certainly wasn’t calling for her to be sanctioned, sacked, hated and attacked for her comments.

Tah-Tah, Izzy: Rugby Australia, NSW Rugby confirm they'll sack Folau

You have the choice of listening now.

I’m not commenting on RA’s position.

And the devil applauds your beliefs and lack of belief in him…

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

Another Christophobic hate attack on Israel Folau. That response simply solidifies the proof that he is right. ‘Methinks thou doth protest too much’ (Shakespeare – tweaked). Let’s look at this commentary – “His views have no place in society at all. How that still escapes him is beyond me.” WTHeck?? Society has no place for heavenly or eternal views?? Society has no place for views that broaden mindset beyond it’s simple and brief existence in this world? Society has no place for Christians, the Salvation Army, the countless charities that do good in the name of God, the schools that provide a quality environment, the aged care factilities….and I could go on. No place in society for them? Falou is simply expressing a view that every pastor, priest, missionary and Christian would hold and express – sinners face eternal judgement – . Not just gays (and if that is his post in this article I don’t actually see any specific reference to gay people) but all sinners in general. Wow – really hit a nerve with a lot of people eh? They say truth hurts…. You obviously must feel really awkward come Easter and Christmas every year. Enjoying the freedom and opportunity this land, saved by men fighting for God and country and king has given you?

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

So the pastime of Christophobia and sensorship raises its head again. Folau has done nothing more than a host of pastors, missionaries and Christians have done through the ages – alert people to the fact that sinners face eternal judgement. Just recently in Victoria a Christian was sentenced to for the crime of.. trying to save lives.. True. Be careful, if you join the mindless mob in attacking this guy, which side of the fence you are on.
