    He wasn't condemning ppl, all he was saying was that in his opinion God does not want us to certain things, and these are the certain things.

    Former Wallaby and media personality Peter FitzSimons spoke to ABC’s RN Drive about his disappointment regarding the Folau saga, rueing the potential rugby career the former superstar could have enjoyed.

    “With Israel Folau, he will be remembered in Australian Rugby as ... one of the most talented players ever to pull on a Wallaby jersey and the greatest disaster to ever befall the Wallabies,” FitzSimons said.

    I can't stand Fitzsimons, but he's right on both counts there- although I don't think he was ever really as good as some made him out to be. At least, not consistently.

    Fitzsimmons speaks his mind
    Big deal
    That is his job to be controversial .
    He hates rugby league. Meh
    I’ve seen Mat Johns hang shit on AFL many times.
    No difference really.

    he is a bloody smart bloke
    Read one of books - they are extremely good.
    I suggest Batavia.10/10

    Anyway he wore that stupid thing on his head for years to show his kids he loves them.

    if anything he is dedicated.

    Now
    How do I get a job where I can break the company rules and still get a massive payout ?

    Any news if the settlement includes what he can/can't do in terms of playing sport in the future?

    Simons's meltdowns have been the true entertainment in all this.
    I haven't the faintest clue, but here's a number that makes me feel better so I'm just going to run with that, says supposed adult in print media.

    Guessing as usual, it's somewhere in the middle.

    So... saying "Drunks, homosexuals, Adulterers, Liars, Fornicators, Thieves, Atheists, Idolators: Hell Awaits You" isn't condemning people...? ok... sounds a lot like condemnation to me.

    As a proud gay man I have absolute no problem with him playing league or union. You see we have this thing in this country called freedom of speech. This allows me to parade up and down the street in nothing but my g string. On the flip side it also allows guys like Folau to speak there mind. I am so sick of people speaking on my behalf. I haven’t met another gay guy that thinks different to me but I have witnessed other people who are not gay speaking against it on my behalf. That Union player Pocock is speaking with freedom of speech. Also according to his religion he’s right. Gays go to hell. The point of this is don’t speak on my behalf and freedom of speech works both ways.

    Amens.

    This is truth from far in Estonia.

    Gays. How many like the league!?

    how many of this ppls g pans actively support games in both league and union!?

    Your country supports LGBT blah blah yet what do u get in return?
    Where is NRL float in gay parade?

    Forget Roberts and the aids guy in England, where is the carryover in culture between homosexuals and ‘Victa’ lawnmower type nrl grassroots support?

    Yet Folau representation the islander and Christian community, combined, maybe half the league loving people.

    Get with it guys!

    This is a message from Estonia. The smartest people of the western white world. Google it.
