Folau

Interesting about the fans, and whether they were actually Catalans fans or not, and if they are whether they’ll actually stop supporting them or not. Only their attendances will be the gauge of that. 
 

Incidentally gambling can considerably worsen the lives of vulnerable children, more than Folau’s idiotic social media comments ever could, but I don’t see any club or fan protesting against that. 

Huge numbers of fans in Australia complain about the gambling. It’s a social disease here.

Does it stop sponsorship of RL in Australia though, or people going to the game or buying merchandise?

They did cut back a few years ago when it was really bad. 

There’s also a huge difference between being directly targeting a marginalised gay child and targeting an adult gambler.

Qantas played a big part in the action against Folau by Aussie RU. 

London Irish (iirc) lost sponsors when they signed a player involved in a sex scandal.

I think Frank is on a bit of an expedition here. For completeness, this was his opening post on the first page of the original folau tgread:

 

"Lots of do gooders on this board." 

In the context of why this thread was created this is quite an important fact that Frank decided to omit.

None of that is relevant.

If you own a business and your high profile spokesperson was threatening your profits, you should be able to sack them instead of watching your brand and profits go do the toilet.

Which the ARU did

Fairly sure everyone who wanted to, had their say on the other thread. Can’t be anything to add surely?

Has Folau deliberately targeted a marginalised gay child? I haven’t followed the story very closely but I haven’t heard about that, what happened?

One thing i would like to say is that the origin of Folau belief comes from British missionaries coming to the Pacific with fire and brimstone Christianity 200 years ago that was even more fundamentalist than Isareal Folau's beliefs!

That's alright then, it was the result of the British 200 years ago and not Israel Folau's fault. We can take all responsibility away from him and put it on the British.

Knew it was somehow our fault.

Most gay children live in religious families. The self loathing and other issues they often face are well documented. So is the suicide and negative lifestyle choices that can come as a consequence. They hear negative comments at home and in places of worship.... for them to then hear a high profile and (at that point in time) respected Folau stick the knife in is appalling.

Hang on, what? Israel Folau is back in rugby league.

Someone should have said something. Has he been up to much recently?

The same Qantas that has a partnership with Emirates, the Airline of the UAE, where being gay is illegal and people are jailed or worse for it .double standards come to mind.
