From the huge smiles on the Folau's faces and grim look on Ralene Castle's face the rumours of the payout appears to be somewhere between $5m which is the remainder of his contract as estimated by HR experts and $8m claimed by some news outlets.

"A team of the sassiest spin doctors canít help Rugby Australia. They lost on Wednesday. Big time. It was an old-fashioned shellacking not seen since the Wallabies lost to England in the World Cup quarterfinal this year."

And while Folau will probably not be able to play in Australia again (RA probably can no longer afford him) but is likely to continue playing overseas.

The lesson is "Get Woke, Go Broke"

How big was the payout, how do you know the figure
It would not have been the 14 million he asked for
His subsequent actions have turned me against him, firmly
However he and his people are victims
Victims of long dead forceful importing of a God other than their own
A God seen these days to be more interested in money than good deeds

The settlement is confidential, so we don't have a clue how much it was. As it is Rugby Australia's money, not ours, we need not worry about it. Personally, I hope the sum cripples RA for good. The PC plonkers brought it on themselves when they meddled in Folau's personal beliefs and freedom of speech. Any organisation, sporting or business, that involves itself in politics deserves to go under. Good luck to Folau. I hope he got enough to keep him comfortable for the rest of his life, and he tells the stupid sport and that awful Kiwi running it what to do with themselves.

Folau is good at catching a ball and running. Who gives a rats what he thinks about gays and hell.

But the QWERTY community can't leave it alone. Every utterance of dissent from the one allowable truth must be quashed. With Rugby now run by the woke-crowd and beholden to Qantas which is also run by gay busy-bodies, they made fools of themselves and cost the code monies it can ill afford.

If they had the interests of the game at heart, they'd have let his comments pass with perhaps a note to say that the code doesn't agree with him.

But, No. Everyone who steps out of line must be crushed. Well Folau has been crushed all the way to the bank.

We were told that the homosexual marriage issue was the last outstanding problem and once it was resolved, all would be well.

But No. Its not good enough that the society now allows them to marry. Every person in the society is now required to actually approve of such marriages.

There's an old Dave Allen joke about immigrating before they make it compulsory.

So the next move for Rugby Australia must be to get rid of a totally incompetent ideologically biased management. Not just some but the lot.

You need ex players running sport, not some fly ins with no understanding of the players or the game. Surely among the thousands of ex players there are some with the management & financial skills. It wouldn't be hard to find some better than the current Rugby bunch.

Can't do more than endorse the sentiments expressed above this post.
Three cheers for Falou and God save the Queen!

And I might add, thanks to forums like OLO which from the get-go, stood firmly behind Falus right to free speech, and free thinking!

Hope this finds you smiling Graham Young, as it does me!
