Fred Flinstone is on the outta at Warner Bros. We should sign him to add some real value.

I would personally love Izzy at the Club, as mentioned before, I think he offers the x-factor we need and can play anywhere in our back five. With the money we have and the money the NRL would hopefully chip in, we can definitely afford him, and I think he would complete the team WT are trying to build.
Regarding his recent comments, I am a strong believer that as an Australian, he has the right to free speech and that he can say what he wants the issue. However, contradicting that, I also think that the 'go to hell' comments were a bit over the top and that he shouldn't have said it.
Nevertheless, I believe he has learned his lesson now, and if we do sign Izzy, which I think we definitely should, he will only add to the team.

Unfortunately you can’t separate his recent comments from this thread. It’s kind of like when we were chasing Packer, and that thread was mainly all about his assault. He happens to be topical atm and for the wrong reasons.
Nailed it.

I wonder about his price tag though too. Would have to be around the 800 - 1 mill mark.

Wonder if the NRL would chip in if the tigers showed interest? The precedent was already set with Hayne.
Ha, I can see the NRL even banning the high performance unit to stop this transfer! It would be a fair call to say Izzy is a high performance player and it should apply. All for free speech, but his comments and actions have tanked his value. No 1M paycheck for him in the NRL. He might get registered on 600K but I think were going to see him in France or Britain, somewhere where his views won't be as widely known.

I think its harsh for people to say hes not the type of player we want or the personality we want at the club. He has been in professional sport for 10 years and barely had an incident that I can recall, bar this in the last week. There are wife beaters, criminals, public nuisances, thugs in our game. Folau voicing his opinion on a matter is not the biggest deal, obviously he has been poorly managed in how he voices that, but again its hardly something to write someone off who has a clean record after a dozen years in the game. There are many many players who have done far worse in the game, probably some at our club and people are happy to have them in the game.

He would answer alot of questions for us.

There's also plenty of young (& old for that matter) people struggling to come to terms with their sexuality and believe me, they don't need a person of his profile spewing the crap he has been of late. Just because he may not be physically violent towards others, that doesn't mean he's any less offensive.

Surely we have a few more boys from the islands that are Mormons at the Tigers?
Should we get rid of them too?
What do you expect when you ask someone of the Mormon background what they think of Homosexuality? Assemblies of God v Mormon = Same same.
Whats next? Do we have any Mulsims at the club? Pretty sure homosexuality isnt accepted in that faith also. Would you be surprised if they openly stated their belief? Christians? Virtue signalling SJW idiots.
Get over yourself... Just because you believe one thing it doesnt mean you have the right to denigrate what another believes.
I dont have the same belief as what Izzy does towards homosexuals. But i get over it and move on. In no way do i consider my opinion more valuable to others than his. We all have our own beliefs.
And in no way do i want to see Izzy in the Tigers colors.. Why? Because he isnt worth the asking price. Even as a youngster he wasnt "electric" or fast. He was great under the high ball in an era where bombing to the wings was the game plan.
He has been playing a truely 2nd rate sport for years now where he makes a few tackles a game and at best runs 100m. And thats against 2nd rate athletes.
Hed be a good NRL player but plenty better....
No thanks
