I do not know whether head injuries to players are more prevalent in NRL than other contact sports, however going by recent comments of two players who have played NRL there maybe some justification in believing head injuries are in fact more prevalent.

Wallabies star Israel Folau said hell awaits “drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, idolators , gee a lot of blokes will finish up in hell
:whistle:

whilst

Anthony Mundine has weighed into the vaccination debate, imploring Australians not to vaccinate their kids and encouraging his followers to go against what he considered an act of bullying by the Australian Government .“Don’t vaccine your kids period! The government bully you into vaccine!

As Folau once played two seasons of AFL and continues to play ARU and Mundine turned to boxing at the end of his NRL career, one might argue those sports have affected their reasoning but both would have endured many head -high tackles playing NRL

It's just that the NRL draws its recruits from the intellectual percentile just below the MENSA qualifying entry point . .

This gives them the ability, and right, to comment on such diverse topics as the morality of vaccination, Hell's entry criteria, and the many other thorny academic issues which lie far beyond the ken of those lesser mortals, fit only for the lesser disciplines such as those that the AFL and boxing may provide

Interestingly, scientific research has revealed that when Mundine left the NRL for boxing, the overall IQ of both groups improved by several percentage points

It is thought that a similar study on Folau's influence will take place in the very near future

Arthur a little off topic, to your knowledge has any academic study determined whether the type of tattoo on one's body makes any difference to one's intellectual percentile ?

Strange that you should ask that, because currently I am part of a field study into that very topic

No definite conclusions yet, but early indications are that I am probably just a little smarter than fellow group member (pictured above)

Hmmmm,

Folau had just broken a long standing record in the game.... I wonder if this is relevant and he has manufactured an escape from his contract.

The question is what does he want to do instead.

For being homophobic.


Has anyone asked Richmond's Bachar Houli his thoughts on the subject?


Of course not.  Usual Christian/Muslim double standard.

Just a simple typo mistake and you have me sent to Coventry.
ARL should have been ARU.

I sensed the level of debate would bottom out when the taxi driver from the west put in his "farthings " worth.

As one pundit said on talk back radio, freedom of speech and an employee working with a code of conduct built into a contract do not mix.

However if you sign a contract, you take the money and say you will adhere to the standards. If you want free speech, find another job that allows you to speak your mind freely without any restrictions.

It is life in the real world as it is an employer and employee relationship. Thus who are supporting Folau and his right to free speech should be supporting the trade union movement and their right to argue with their bosses. I also wonder if those who are supporting Folau have the same view on the indigenous players not singing the National Anthem during the Indigenous All Star Game or US players kneeling during the national anthem. Free speech works both ways.

But at the end of the day, ARU is an employer and can terminate if they find employees have breached their code of conduct.

Folau just needed to wait until he came off contract then he could post whatever he wanted.
No doubt there’s some better offer floating around he wasn’t willing to wait for.

Mundane   :lol:  is a complete tosser.

Plenty of talk about a large French rugby deal already done.  :bulb:

Otherwise it's a strange outburst not 6 months after they went through a similar discussion when signing his last deal  :shrug:

Agree 100% Jeunes and saved me typing out something similar  :thumbsup:

No matter how much I disagree with what he says I will always fight for his right to say it.

If someone tells me I'm going to hell I don't care. Not scared of the boogie man either!!

The ARU has no right to control anyone's religious beliefs.

Totally agree with your first two lines Napes but its not about the ARU controlling his religious beliefs. It's about him breaking his contract which would have a social media clause in it.

There would be very few employers these days that don't have a policy, I know my employer does  :bulb:

Arthur, apologies  I should have posted that was a letter in today's paper, although I doubt you, like myself, would not be in one of those categories.

What happens if I am offended? Technically the other categories can fit 99.99999998888% of the population.

I actually concur with IF about these 2 pagan rituals. Somewhat.

But from my perspective of a hellbound drunken atheist.
