    Ohh, but we're not there yet. That's a step or two away.

    Bean - do you give yourself that moniker after another famous Bean, who for years was silenced by the metropolitan writing elite and it took him going to America (the land of the free) to finally be given a voice?

    No. I was hungry after my last account got banned. Canned Beans on toast was the first food I thought of.

    First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    Then they came for the homophobes, but I did not speak out - because I was not a homophobe. And oh, wait, it was the homophobes after all those other groups, oh well, a bit of group masochism isn’t all bad

    Also wanted to add; do you see yourself as one of those tinned beans, looking to break free from the shackles of the tinned nightmare you find yourself in and go back to the old days when you were free to Bean about with no subjugation

    No, I just always imagine myself covered in wet tomato sauce and in a microwave for 3 minutes.

    The point was that no one came for him. No one silenced him. He's not in prison.

    He breached a contract. That's it.

    I know you are a troll Bean, but man am i tired of bigots claiming they have some kind of civil right to be bigoted and suffer no consequence there-of. Or hiding their bigotry behind their religion. I'd have more respect for someone who could just own their own prejudice without having to make up some excuse. Its pathetic.

    Then they came for the homosexuals, and I spoke out even though I was not homosexual.

    I guess the irony of your post is lost on you as it advocates standing up to views like Folaus.

    Hmm, I had a thread alert and it took me to the first unread post which was
    I thought man, Oly is being a bit harsh on Binny today and carried on. Took a few posts for my dumb ass to realise somebody was posting and they've been removed. Then another moment before I realised it's because I actually did something I hardly ever do and blocked the ex-member responsible. Unhid the messages to discover I had missed nothing of value. Vindicated.

    Morale of the story? I have no idea but I'm in desperate need of lunch.

    Bonus Telegraph piece which basically covers the same Billy V comments but with more of a take, especially with headline;

    So first test without him and it's immediately clear how badly we miss his ability. Bombed two certain tries which would have sent us into the break well in the lead.

    With this nonsense likely to be going on in the background for the entire year, our team still shackled to Cheika and Grey with their obvious inadequacies for the RWC and the impending bankruptcy of RA should Murdoch turn off the tap as mooted, this might be the last year supporting the Wallabies means anything.

    Feeling pretty bummed about it all.
