Religion has way too much unearned respect!

I'd be filthy on my team mate if he let everyone down and didn't play on Sundays because he believed in an invisible supernatural one eyed dragon that has promised to give him eternal life after he dies and wants him all to himself on sundays until then, Hoppas reasons are no different and should be treated no different.
I wonder how far another player would get or anyone else for that matter if they said they aren't working on a particular day every week for whatever reason? For some reason if you drop in the magical word 'religion' you instantly get people tip toeing around you and get special treatment, it's BS.
Sam Perrett asked to be excused from Sundays as well but the club denied him. Great for team morale telling Player A he can do something, then telling Player B he can't do the same.

You're right though, it's garbage, let's see how serous he is about his God come finals time if the Dogs have to play Sundays.
The difference is that one negotiated it in his contract, and presumably gets paid less as a result, and the other one didn't.

Im an atheist but I respect Hopoate. Cant stand god botherers who selectively choose which rules to follow.

Get up and in the face of Josh Reynolds.
He will go looking for revenge, give away penalties, and not focus on his game.

Based on all reports, yes. It was agreed when he signed with the Dogs. Obviously I haven't personally seen his contract.

Ok cool, well that's crazy on the dogs behalf if that's the case. Lucky Hoppa didn't sign with the Sharks then because they play majority of their games on a Sunday.
