Multimillionaire contact sport player Israel Folau has today unveiled plans to raise a $3 million target to help cover his $150,000 to fight Rugby Australia over the termination of his contract.
After playing both NRL and AFL professional, Folau’s rugby union contract was discontinued in April over his controversial social media posts in which he posted that homosexuals, among others, would go to hell unless they repented.
Folau, a staunch Pentecostal Christian who converted from the Mormon church around about the time where most young men would have to sacrifice a year to go on missionary service, has today taken part in the age old Christian tradition of crowd-funding his own salary.
While usually a collection plate is used in this scenario, Izzy’s chosen denomination, the Assemblies Of God, now use a portable eft-pos machine to raise the money to pay their church figures to talk shit.
However, considering all of Folau’s money will eventually go back to the church, he’s decided to use an online crowd-funding platform to ask the greater population to chip in.
Earlier this month he announced he had launched legal proceedings with the Fair Work Commission against RA and NSW Rugby for breach of contract.
Folau, who was well-known for not acting like a Christian in Fortitude Valley during his time at the Brisbane Broncos has appointed a legal team comprised of high-profile employment lawyers, including barrister George Haros and barrister Stuart Wood AM QC.
In response to this most recent the Greater Western Sydney Giants fans have announced plans to crowd-fund the 4.2 million dollars he stole from their club to allegedly play AFL for three years,
