Scott Pen’s Recent Pride Jersey Announcement
The Sydney-based team, Manly Sea Eagles, unveiled an inclusive jersey that replaced the white trim and stripes with rainbow hues to show support for the LGBTQIA+ community.
Despite several of his team’s stars withdrawing due to religious objections, the owner of the Manly Sea Eagles called in from the world’s woke capital of New York to emphasize that his team is devoted to its inclusivity and diversity jersey.
Tolutau Koula, Christian Tuipulotu, Josh Aloiai, Jason Saab, Josh Schuster, Haumole Olakau’atu, and Toafofoa Sipley have all withdrawn from the Roosters game, which might be important to the Sea Eagles’ prospects of making the finals. The club did not consult them over the jersey.
Before Thursday’s game, Penn said he wanted to make it clear to the players that they would never have, or would be, ostracized at his club for their views. He acknowledged that the club would need to conduct broader engagement over the inclusion measures, but it is clear that he will not back down from Manly donning a pride jumper.
