    I always wondered how Maria and ekenasio get on off court. After the stuff he posted last year ekenasio and her husband were part of a rainbow youth campaign that were selling T-shirt’s for support. That would make for quite an interesting dynamic off court

    The Mystics coach said yesterday that Maria treats people with respect. She has certainly played netball with team mates who are gay women, and is not known for being discriminatory in any way. She certainly tweeted support for her husbands right to express his views last year, but has not commented since. Of course she will stand by him, but I’d be very surprised if she made any public comment. or if she shared the extremity of his views. Must admit when I saw his latest post ,and the list of sinners I thought that pretty much covered everybody. lol

    Not Christian pedophiles. I know it was a quote from the Bible, so maybe they didn’t exist back then.

    That’s because it’s not Mr Bean.  :mrgreen:

    Rowan Atkinson is an amazingly talented comedic actor. (Black Adder is proof enough of that) Mr Bean was funny the 1st couple of TV shows. But after that. Meh

    😂 I have never heard him speak! That’s probably why I enjoyed this. I remember Black adder vaguely, but that was more my parents cup of tea.

    So it seems that Israel Foul, will appeal his sacking from the ARU.  The appeal will prob be heard sometime next week.

    Will Maria be there to support him?.  I am guessing there are 2 public holidays in Aus next week (Easter Monday and ANZAC Day).

    So that only leaves Tues, Wed and Fri, I doubt the ARU will want to pay lawyers double or triple pay.  Plus with the SSN starting next weekend,  will Maria be actually mentally ready to be playing, will she attend the trainings, while hubby is fighting to keep his million $$$ a year job.

    Folau chose religious and perhaps sporting martyrdom. I am an Atheist. So I find his comments meaningless. But I do accept the terrible toll his comments take on people facing discrimination on the basis of their sexuality, or people struggling to with their sexuality.
