Tennis legend Martina Navratilova wants Margaret Court Arena to be renamed after indigenous star, Evonne Goolagong. 9News

Martina Navratilova is the one with all the HATE = simply OOOOZZZZZINNNG out of her like corona virus puss

Does Margaret Court have a very masculine face and physique? Did she transition at a very early age and uses hate to hide the fact?

Go Home

Martina and McEnroe can go and get stuffed. How dare they even think they have any say in how Australia names its stadiums. The arrogance of them! Piss off, both of ya.

I stll see Martina Navratilova cannot seperate sporting achievements from personal views 🤦🏻‍♂️

Ohhhh lol. Chris Kenny is hilarious isn't he? auspol MSM

It takes a great deal of inventiveness to report the actions of an unbalanced, evil sociopath in a good light. Congrats Chris Kenny!

Is Sky News morphing into Fox News? Sorry Rupert, we’ll never fall for it!

Yep they have done since the outset

I’m so glad TA had the guts to take a stand on this & not give in to these bullies who try to push their views onto all of us! I’m sick of the few trying to push their PC views onto everyone. Stop giving into them or they’ll keep pushing things further & further

Great idea. Take note dinosaurs of Tennis Australia. You are completely out of whack with the pathetic attempts to appease and accommodate a sick and sad individual like homophobic Court. Remove her name NOW

Australia does not take orders from foreign minority bigots. We have Freedom of Speech here and we say what we think and the Aussie Freedom will never be stopped by leftists anti democratic groups that want to silence their critics. Margaret Court is bigger than them both.

Queensland religious groups oppose government attempt to outlaw gay conversion therapy (39)

In November, the Queensland government committed to outlawing gay conversion therapy. Religious groups are fighting to stop the legislation’s passage.

Religious groups in Queensland are pushing to keep LGBTIQ+ conversion therapy legal in the state after the Queensland government declared its intention to outlaw the practices last year.

Queensland.. Enough said..

Utterly disgraceful. I have to wonder if these folk are emboldened by the prospect of the Religious Discrimination Bill. Seriously aren't they aware that Conversion Therapy has been totally debunked?

Why don’t they deal with their pedophiles and leave the medical treatment to appropriately qualified drs. Conversion therapy is a sham it just creates stress and pain. Homosexuality is proven to be a normal variant of sexual behaviour ie there is nothing to treat.

If religious groups want to interfere with the legal and political system, they can pay tax or be quiet. Can't have both.

Outlaw? Yet they push for Drag queen story time? 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

Former Wallabies star Israel Folau has signed on with French-based rugby league club Catalans Dragons in the Super League competition in Europe.

Whatever they paid for him...it was too much. But I do like the way, this overrated winger signed a clause saying he wouldn't speak out to get this gig...so much for his principles.

Well done Israel!! Middle finger to the ARL, NRL & RA!

Izzy Folau’s statement via his lawyer: “I’d like 2 thank RA for providing the funds for me to buy a nice new home in the south of France. I would also like 2 thank the woke crowd who helped me get the millions from RA, I couldn’t of done it without you”

And they can STAY THERE.

Good.

SBS Disgraceful, a couple of has-beens trying to stay relevant. Who cares what a couple of old fossils think, 1 with a reputation for throwing tantrums like a 5yo the other accused of making trans phobic comments on twitter. Margaret Court is a national treasure.

So hypocritical of TA..

Rename it.... until Yvonne decides to open her mouth and say something... then media will rename it centre court.

The hetrophobia is strong here.

Let’s change the name, TennisAustralia! Well done Martina and PatrickMcEnroe 👏🏼
