    Folau is click bait right now, every news organisation is running stories about him.

    Wonder if Hoiles and Mitchell were hauled up to the Boss's office for a rogering over their comments.

    Fox backing Folau! Are they using this to get RA down on their knees so it’s more enjoyable when they shaft them when they say no money for rugby!

    By then they will have no viewers anyway as the Australian public jumps ship. Terrible plan by Fox but they did announce a recent strategy of charging their new and current customers more money for less content so they have form when making these "good" decisions.

    I don't think they are backing him, but their reporting seems to be giving him heaps of coverage. And his private fundme page got $1.6m in 24 hours

    And I bet all of that $1.6m has come from people who are considerably less wealthy than him. Wonder where that sits on the morality scale of such a devout Pentecostal Christian.

    So the disclaimer of "donations may or may not be used to fund Folau's legal costs". I've seen around the internet that some legal eagles estimate that his court costs will be in the ball park of $300k so what are they going to do with the rest of the money?

    The ACL is insidious, then again most lobby groups are.

    Full disclosure, I'm anti the whole "rich guy crowd funds his unfair dismissal case thing" but 300k seems pretty bargain basement, the award of "reasonable legal costs" in the force axing case was 1.2M and that didn't go to the high court. Folau can fund this fight himself though

    I don't know if the Law talking guys being quoted were only talking about the Fair Work Commission, or a case to go through various courts.

    Folau is a multi millionaire who is asking for donations with a similar disclaimer on both the Go Fund Me and now the ACL's donations page. The fundraiser is approaching $2 million now, surely they've got more than enough?

    The disclaimer muddies the waters and I think people are just giving money to the Australian Christian League now.

    Apparently the National Charity watchdog is taking an interest now so it may be a case of watch this space.

    "Percy George’s family struggles to fund funeral as Israel Folau cashes in on GoFundMe

    Relatives of an Aboriginal footballer who died on the field are struggling to raise $4000 to pay for his funeral while Israel Folau rakes in almost $2 million for his controversial challenge against Rugby Australia.

    Mid West footballer Percy George, a veteran of more than 200 games, was playing for Three Springs in Dongara last Saturday when he collapsed. A Facebook fundraiser set up yesterday asking for $4,000 to cover Mr George’s funeral is falling short, raising about $2,200 from about 70 donors by this afternoon."

    Did the likes of Pip Marlow donate to Sarah Hanson-Youngís GoFundMe account for her legal bill.
