NFL indicates Texas ‘bathroom bill’ may affect Super Bowl hosting

Texas lawmakers could hurt the football-loving state’s chances to attract a future Super Bowl if they adopt a measure that restricts access to bathrooms for transgender people, a National Football League spokesman said on Friday.

The comments, which come after Houston hosted Super Bowl LI on Sunday, appear to be the most critical by the league yet of legislation that has become a focal point in U.S. culture wars.

“If a proposal that is discriminatory or inconsistent with our values were to become law there, that would certainly be a factor considered when thinking about awarding future events,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said when asked for the league’s stance on the Texas bill.

McCarthy added: “We want all fans to feel welcomed at our events and NFL policies prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other improper standard.”

The proposed measure in Texas is similar to one enacted last year in North Carolina, prompting the National Basketball Association to pull its showcase 2017 All Star game from Charlotte.

    That “Bathroom” bill is the most stupid thing I have ever heard over the last 70 years. Since when did the Great Creator give us a third sex? What do we call it? A transvestite, a humaoraphmodite, an it, or what ever?

    Who cares what the NFL and NCAA thinks? I’m tired of seeing sports leagues think they can go into a state and dictate public policy.

    Maybe its time to give these sports monopolies a little competition. Maybe its time to create competing sports championships. All it would take would be for one of these competing championships to start pulling away viewers and the attitudes of the sports monopolies would change.

    Viewers can send a message to these dictatorial sports leagues by boycotting the games and the merchandising.

    It was NEVER a LAW it was a mandate by Obama who threatened to stop federal funds to the states etc that didn’t enforce it. Wondering if that would have flown in court? So this doesn’t exist and everyone needs to understand that. Obama not in office, Lynch not in office, over, done, kaput do what is best for your state and to Hell with these people.

    Don’t take anymore threats. You have POTUS Trump and a real AG. Stand up and make them Stand Down. The age of the Minority Rule is OVER.

    Hey NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy post it that you would have absolutely no problem with a transgender male (dressed/living like a woman) using the same bathroom as your mother, spouse, daughter, granddaughter to include taking a shower too. Maybe even sharing a bed just like any 2 women that are friends would.
    Come big mouth, speak up and post it in the news as part of the sports.

      When are they going to have the first biological female who thinks she/he is a male playing on one of the teams and dressing and showering in the same locker room with the men.

    Tell the National Felon League [NFL] or the National Freak League [NFL] to go Sandra Fluke themselves. Why would any sane organization support an insane 0.70 % of the general population over the sane 99.3%???????????????????????????? Stop pampering perversion and pacifying perverts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think they actually believe that us Deplorables can actually afford their ticket prices. Who cares the game is played by a bunch of overpriced showboats who think they are the first person to score a TD. Here’s a hint sports heroes…the purpose of the game is to score points…that is what you get paid for oh overhyped ones. When was the last time a Deplorable spiked a report and did a ‘finished the assignment’ dance in front of the CEO…Oh Yeah!! Never!

  • Rodzzz says:

    Who cares for the NFL anyway?

  • teaman says:

    Well…….good riddance to the NFL. There is no such thing as transwhatever. All you need to fight that stupidity is a full length mirror and a DNA test.

  • buck Shot says:

    Who really cares? 99.5% aren’t going to go anyway! I’m sick of the Brian McCarthy’s and other ass kissers imbedded in professional sports. I seldom watch any sport anymore, due primarily to the politics and commercialization of all sports.

  • Vince Moore says:

    I want to thank these left leaning nitwits! Because of these biology denying idiots I have rediscovered: cycling, hiking, fishing, camping and campfires…

  • TexRancher says:

    Since when do we start answering to the NFL? States should clean this mess up and tell the NFL Kiss OFF! When enough States do, the NFL will come begging for a place to play their kids game!

    This bathroom crap is to placate 1% of the people and it sucks!
