The National Football League…
In previous years, the NFL has been plagued by controversy–steroid use, players’ violence off the field, and the severe damage caused by multiple concussions, to name a few.
Well, the list has just gotten longer. The NFL is cracking down on… wait for it… Texas.
Because in Texas, a bill was filed requiring people to “use bathrooms that correspond to the sex on their birth certificate.”
According to The Blaze:
The NFL is threatening to punish the state of Texas unless they follow the far more liberal standards the league has on transgender rights, and Governor Abbott is responding much like most people would expect a Texan to.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott responded in a tweet, “NFL decision makers also benched Tom Brady last season. It ended with NFL handing the Super Bowl trophy to Brady.”
Abbott, aligning the Texan Plight with Brady, suggests Texans might be successful as well despite any setback the NFL might impose:
League spokesman Brian McCarthy made a statement issuing the threat to Texas in response to an email. “If a proposal that is discriminatory or inconsistent with our values were to become law there,” he wrote, “that would certainly be a factor considered when thinking about awarding future events.”
He was referring to a bill filed last month in Texas that would set guidelines for who can use what gender-designated bathroom.
Under the Texas bill, people would be required to use bathrooms that correspond to the sex on their birth certificate. It’s similar to a North Carolina law that prompted the NCAA to pull seven championship events from that state last year and is backed by Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, a powerful figure in the state who had cited the Houston Super Bowl as proof that big events will stick around.
While the NFL is incredibly concerned with transgender issues, in the same way Hollywood can’t seem to stop talking about President Trump, I think we should all stick to our strengths.
NFL: Make sure your players are healthy, avoiding illegal drugs, resting after concussions, and suffer repercussions for poor behavior off the field.
Got it? Good.
