NFL could pull Super Bowl if Arizona religious rights bill passes

Call it what you want — anti-gay or religious rights — but if Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signs a controversial bill, you might not be calling Arizona the home of the 2015 Super Bowl.

The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, S.B. 1062, is the current controversy du jour out of Arizona, and the National Football League is with the opposition.

“Our policies emphasize tolerance and inclusiveness and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other improper standard,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told USA Today. “We are following the issue in Arizona and will continue to do so should the bill be signed into law, but will decline further comment at this time.”

    Well, it looks like Gov Jan couldn’t man up and sign the bill. I guess you’ll have to get rid of her, too. What a shame.

    That’s joke!!! NFL controlling state law. As for the law itself? That’s a hard one to figure out. Seems that it’s a law that would protect business’ from OTHER state laws. The positive seems to be that it would seem to only affect individuals doing business with individuals.

    Screw the NFL The Arizona Bill it is none of their business. They commented on the Missouri Player announcing that he was gay. They said they only cared if he could play football. Why then do you care in the people of Arizona want their right to religious freedom protected. It has nothing to do with football.

    I am beginning to think that the NFL is anti Christian and anti Family. You did nothing about all the crap Tebow went through because he was a Christian and now you put your foot in your mouth on the rights of the
    people to have religious freedom. Fire the head of the NFL he has not place in this sport or for that matter in this country with an anti American attitude like that.

      Yeah, and Jan Brewer certainly doesn’t need any of the jobs that the NFL supports in Phoenix, or AZ as a whole. I hope she mans up and signs the bill. Maybe she and the Tea Party don’t think they need those jobs, or the federal handouts that the government gives to AZ. Let’s see how fast they start screaming if the fed money starts drying up. Just like the rest of their desert if they didn’t have fed water. We need more Brewers and Arpaios in office!!

    Tell the NFL that they can go FO. Their blatant attempt to kiss the arse of the gays and liberals should get the attention of the rest of the country. The NFL does not represent good and moral values ant more.
    I grew up with many pro athletes around me, it was the 1950’s and 1960,s. They were all polite gentleman at all times. The were happily married and raising children. Their example t children was wonderful.
    Now we have a bunch of tatta out wanabe thugs on the most part.

    what ever happen to freedom? Why should anyone be forced to buy something they do not want. Why should someone be forced to do business with someone they do not want to? Folks we must take our freedom back or end up slaves to socialist government. I for one would never do business with folks I do not like or goes against my believes. It is called freedom of choice and both party’s may choose not to engage for what ever reason. If I do not like a race color or what ever it is my choice what I want to do NOT government.

    NFL can go take a flying leap! Football is a thing of the past… don’t want to have to watch multimillionaire queer thugs run around a field…

    1. I Seigel says:

      I’m sure you thoroughly enjoyed watching the Olympics then….

      1. Chris Foltz says:

        same thing… media pushing the queer agenda… trying to tell the Russian what to do… percentage of in the U.S. population is 1.2% for queers… lol why should they be able to push their debauchery onto the majority … I’m so sick of big mouthed queers… it’s not a civil rights issue being QUEER!!!

        1. I Seigel says:

          Exactly! So no NFL for you and no Olympics. I’m assuming you don’t pay attention to multimillionaire (gay) thugs playing basketball either. Baseball is just plain boring and especially with all those latinos now playing. Some are probably not even citizens. Is hockey the only manly sport left, then? All the blood and fighting in between the actual playing of the game? Even though a lot of them are foreigners? Or are you a rugby fan? Probably nothing gay going on in those scrums, huh?

          1. Chris Foltz says:

            All you can think about is playing with BALLS??? That’s very GAY of you… :O

          2. I Seigel says:

            Ah! So poker is your sport of choice to watch on TV! Or chess (oh, sorry, that would be playing with chessMEN). You probably watch Sarah’s hunting show, and the Duck Hunters. And of course there’s the bass fishing channel. Good on ya!

          3. Chris Foltz says:

            what’s a matter… no friends to “TeaBag” today… Ah-hahahahaha… poor lil’ trollboy got nobody to T-Bag… :

          4. I Seigel says:

            Nope. All my other 1% friends are on their ski holidays or on their winter trips to Dubai. I’m just sitting here in my Wall St office doing the megadeals. You know, job creating.

          5. Chris Foltz says:

            1.2 % …in reality ya’ll mean nothing…
