    Ok Then



    Idolatry is the worship of an idol or cult image, being a physical image, such as a statue, or a person in place of God. In Abrahamic religions, namely Christianity, Islam and Judaism,...
  2. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    One of the things that really chaps my arse is bigots claiming that their Free Speech is being infringed when they get deplatformed. I hear racist bigots like Alex Jones (Infowars) and his idiot...
  3. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    It was a general comment about speech nothing more... I did not say he made woman-bashing comments, I said IF he did!

  4. Re: Rugby in Australia - not quite dead, but close

    ... and as a result, many end up playing the 13 man code, or going to Europe.

    I promise you, the vultures from the NRL, and from French and UK Union clubs will be circling.
  5. Re: Rugby in Australia - not quite dead, but close

    Engineers of their own misfortune then. THAT is where the Union needed to be spending their money... not on some half arsed quick fix buying has-been RL players.

  6. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    Does Folau have the right to believe what he wants? Of course he does. However, if he is going to to spout his beliefs, and that spouting includes gay-bashing, woman-bashing, black-bashing or any...
  7. Re: Rugby in Australia - not quite dead, but close

    RA spent millions on short term fixes buying RL players (Sailor, Rogers, Tuquiri, Folau et al) many of whom were overpriced well past their use-by date, instead of spending those millions on...

    [RWC] Re: RWC .. that Kerevi forearm..

    :biggrin:

    Of course, I was using "you" as a general pronoun rather then a personal one.

    In this case, I expect you would be the one dishing out the stern words about player safety, yes?

    [RWC] Re: RWC .. that Kerevi forearm..

    Indeed. If you were to allow that Kerevi style forearm to the neck go unpunished at your level, I dare say your assessor will be having a few stern words with you about player safety, duty of care...

    [6N] Re: Eddie takes a pop at Nigel

    Eddie is using statistics the same way that a drunk uses a lamp post.

    For the record, in the Six Nations, % wins at home

    In one of the places I lived in in back in the 1990's, I had two lots of Muslim neighbours. One set was an older couple that pretty much kept to themselves. They smiled and said hello when you saw...

  16. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    A while back, one rugby player called another rugby player "gypsy boy". IIRC, it didn't end particularly well for the name caller.

    Yep. Sorry about that

    It was supposed to be posted on another (skeptics) forum with near identical software and look, that I had open on another tab.

    It was actually a repost from a third forum

    Re: [RWC] Eng v SA

    This is such a boring match, a repeat of 2007

    Looks like South Africa have managed to drag England down to their level.
