[Ed. – Another well-considered move sure to irritate the NFL fan base. Good luck with that, Roger. I think Texas can take you. N.B.: Houston voters rejected “bathroom privileges” for men in women’s bathrooms in 2015. If this affected Super Bowl fans in 2017, there’s been no reporting of it.]
The NFL, which just held the Super Bowl in Texas, is warning that a “bathroom bill” targeting transgender persons could jeopardize future major events in that state. League spokesman Brian McCarthy said Friday that “discriminatory” legislation would “certainly be a factor” in awarding Super Bowls.
The Texas proposal would require individuals to use bathrooms that correspond to the sex on their birth certificate. A similar law in North Carolina led the NCAA to pull college championship events from that state.
“The NFL embraces inclusiveness,” McCarthy said.
