Peter Beattie has already ruled Folau out, not welcome. Views inconsistent with the values of the NRL.

I give it 2 years then Uncle Nick from the Roosters will make an offer for a return and it will magically be granted by the NRL

You hit the nail on the head mate, but it wasn't at Cronulla. We did meet and have a chat at cbus a few years back.

At least Izzy is prepared to say something against the grain and put his name to it. Everyone feels they have to toe the line at the moment. Guaranteed plenty of high profile people agree with him on some points, but it's more popular to bag him.

Yep, his saving grace is that hes willing to publicly spread the hateful message other hateful people are at least smart enough to keep to themselves. What a redeeming feature

He's being bagged because he's made horrible, hateful, discriminatory remarks.

I’d love to know if Izzy has kept within his religion and given substantial amounts of his income to his church

Also I’d be super pumped if Izzy could just **** off and take his hateful **** with him

He is welcome to his thoughts, and to speak his mind, it is a free country after all. However, everyone else is also right to be bagging the absolute BLEEP out of him for saying it too. Awful awful stuff.

He does give financially to his church.

I don't believe that's true. A majority of Australians are reasonable, sensible, educated and tolerant. The people who are hateful and intolerant are thankfully, increasingly in the minority.

The majority of us are tolerant. I think the gay marriage plebiscite demonstrated that.

I want to see your working out on the other three. I am pretty sceptical of your claims here GE.

The media literally makes its $$$ by pandering to what most people want to watch or hear. They don't lead opinion. They follow it. It is the business model.

If most people supported his views, media and corporations would follow that Almighty dollar by "upholding community standards" and supporting him. The reason they don't is that BY FAR the largest % of Australians offer "no religion" to census questions and even those who do follow a religion tend to do so in a tolerant, live and let live manner.

Neither left, nor right has super-powers over the market.

PS. I've left niche operators out of the discussion , for simplicity.
