As they say - are like arseholes - everyone has one.
With the recent press about Margaret Court’s opinions, I was wondering if it differs from the Israel Folau issue. And then I started having a think about opinions.
Personally I don’t care what our sporting identities think - I think they should be able to have an opinion just like everyone else.
Ironically, I will form my own opinion of their opinions and have my own opinion on whether their opinion clouds my respect for them as a player. Sometimes it will, sometimes it won’t - but that is up to me - just like it is up to them to have their own opinion on a matter.
After all - it is their opinion and should not reflect on the organisation that governs the sport they play. The organisation should be there to govern the game not the opinions of the players.
We wouldn’t have a forum if it wasn’t for opinions.
If an opinion is too extreme than so be it. After all, if a person is so extreme on their opinion - they are the ones expending the energy getting so worked up about it. Let them fizzle in their own stew.
I can’t remember much about the Israel Folau issue but in my opinion - Margaret Court’s legacy has nothing to do with the fact that she doesn’t like same sex marriage.
