    I read the article quickly yesterday and thought it was Pearce admitting he was "overcooked" that night....

      In a few years time when we look back at the whole Folau debacle, they'll say they overreacted.
      The media pump it up and the powers that be 'feel' they have to act.

        The difference is that Israel Folau knowingly posted something which his contract forbade him to do, whereas Mitchell Pearce was the victim of a get rich quick scheme.

          Yep, they confirmed what we all knew.
          It was a roosters stich up.
          Surely the club brings this up whenever the fuc$ers look at us sideways?

            Sums it up well:
            - Israel was warned and still continued. Like Scott McIntyre (who nobody from the right of politics is bringing up as a precedent)... you can get sacked for posting stuff that's inconsistent with company policy.
            - Israel's biggest supporter (Alan Jones) has no issues about Scott McIntyre being sacked for publishing an article about ANZACS raping Japanese and Egyptian women (on ANZAC day - which was contrary to SBS's institutional message about ANZAC day and brought their name into controversy).
            - Christians aren't all banding together behind Israel. Israel's self-styled, extremist, evangelical preaching has offended a lot of Christians (including David Pockock, John Eales and Nick Farr-Jones... all of whom are more important to Australian rugby). All three of them see his approach + content as being contrary to the bible and obnoxiously homophobic.
