Matt Lodge, repented and apologised for his actions, worked with the NRL to prove his contrition, and has attended clinics to clean up his issues. Folau insists he is right and that they should apologise to him. Personally i wouldnt have either as a friend but i see the difference
Hahaha, Matt Lodge went on a drug and alcohol fueled psychotic rampage pursuing and threatening to rape and kill a couple of girls whom luckily escaped into the home of a family with young kids were their father was seriously assaulted before the NYPD fortunately arrived on the scene and prevented a murder or 5..

You need some fucking perspective.. perhaps pay a visit to destinys church

You may well be right in saying about M Lodge that he is contrite and done this and that. But to the best of my knowledge he hasn’t made any attempt to pay the family he terrorised. Therein lays the problem!
I thought it had happened.

the point of my post was not to defend Lodge, it was to point out that he has made an attempt to apologise and make restitution. This is the same sport that let Packer play again after he literally tried to kill someone by stomping on their head. They gave him a second chance, which I would not have, but on that basis if Folau said he wouldnt do it again and said he was sorry for upsetting some people, then they would also have let him rejoin the NRL. He doesnt have to mean it any more than any other preacher or politician.

You’re correct In what you’re saying but in my defence. The last I saw was on the ABC 7-30 Report in Feb/March 2018 where the inference was he had made no effort to compensate the NY family which at the time they claimed he hadn’t made any effort. I’m the first to admit my mistake(s) that I’m wrong when it’s proven so. Without trying to make excuses for my mistake. I really don’t care a flying phuck for the Broncos though I follow Queensland in SoO.👌🏽

the only thing I will say is and please this is no defence of Packer, is that he did serve time. Lodge has had fuck all punishment. I know we have all made mistakes, but nothing ever like this. Could have quite easily ended up with someone dying. His intent was to hurt someone. Are we that desperate for players in our game that we let someone of his character back in, and then to boot, considered for the captaincy. Fuck me the worlds gone mad !:(

Nothing wrong with Izzy, he's allowed to have his beliefs and also to express them but it's the league player that interests me. I only care to watch him play league..
Sorry for the delay in replying to your post e hoa. Yes you’re quite right as a general rule of thumb I wouldn’t/don’t have an issue with I Folau and who he does it with. But even his legal team have said in court papers reported on in Tuesday’s paper that he was wrong to post what he said about homosexual people. I understand that you are only interested in the footy player. But it seems convenient/coincidental he makes himself ‘available’ to play for Tonga. A case of ‘look at me look at me! Please! PS,I’ve just read on Stuff that he’s all but been blocked now officially from playing for Tonga. A Fifita J Taumalolo and K Woolfe are back in the fold again

As far as I can work out this Folau palava is rooted in money, commercial money. The ARU sacked him because the corporate sponsor Quantas made it so, even though that action painted the CEO a hypocrite. But I deviate from the point which is selection for a national representative sporting team should not be concerned with such matters and the NRL shouldn't be able to influence the RLIF as they have via that Muppet Peter Beattie who didn't even know the names of the form teams he governs in the NRL.
What we now have is a weaker Kiwis side, a weaker MMT and a stronger case for SOO..

It's enough to ponder converting to Islam..

Unfortunately money is at the bottom of everything in this day and age. It doesn’t make it right it’s just a fact of life. Yes at the end of the day I think you’re right to say SoO is the winner for obvious financial reasoning. With regards to your last point,you maybe,me,it would take more than this,but,never say never ?! they tell me✊🏽
