Israel Folau dropped by ASICS after anti-LGBT social media posts

Troubled Wallabies star Israel Folau committed a high-level breach of the players's code

"Those that are living in sin will end up in Hell unless you repent", he added in the caption.

"They have to manage it. and shame on you if it happens a second time", he said, while announcing the airline's third-quarter results on Thursday.

Folau's perceived lack of clarity on what he could and couldn't say and "loving" intentions toward sinners led to Farr-Jones changing his mind.

On April 10, Folau took to Instagram to proclaim "hell awaits drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and idolators" unless they repent and turn to Jesus.

A panel of John West QC, Kate Eastman SC and John Boultee presided over the three-day hearing, and wants more information before deciding on potential punishments for Folau.

He's expected to lose his $4million four-year RA contract and never play for the Wallabies again.

The sportswear company is a personal sponsor for Folau as well as the Wallabies and has acted after the 30-year-old was found to have committed a high-level breach of Rugby Australia's code of conduct.

What to do now with Israel Folau? "The pressures are different, the nature of what you're going to is different and some people thrive in that and some people don't". I think we can't focus too much on the "what ifs" because we can't control those.

China Hopes to "Negotiate" Trade Issues With Joe Biden or 'Weak' Dems
Earlier this week Trump sent global financial markets plunging with a surprise threat of more penalties on Chinese imports. China, as a reaction, initially decided against sending its envoy to the United States for talks.

Sydney's Daily Telegraph reported Friday that he been given numerous opportunities before and during the hearing to save his career by guaranteeing not to target the gay community in any further social media posts.

Speaking from Johannesburg before the Waratahs' crunch Saturday night Super Rugby clash with the Lions, Gibson was asked if he was resigned to losing Folau for good.

"What he's saying isn't that he doesn't like or love those people. This is not the Australia our veterans fought for and we're going to have to take our country back by argument and by the democratic and peaceful process - not by hate and revenge or vilification and intimidation", Jones said on his 2GB morning show.

Speaking on ABC Radio in Melbourne, McLachlan declined to weigh in on the specifics of Folau's case out of respect for rugby and the decision that still needs to be made about his future.

"Asics is dedicated to sport and its healthy contribution to society", a company statement read.

"For any strong Australian brand or organisation, you've got to stand for what you are and with rugby, it's the pillars of integrity and respect and teamwork and the inclusiveness we champion", Mitchell said.

While there was nothing concrete about his social media activity in his newest multimillion-dollar deal, she and Wallabies coach Michael Cheika said Folau had been told in no uncertain terms past year he was not to post inflammatory material about gay people online, though Folau reportedly disputes that.
