    Can you believe this?

    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.

    Let's hope the politicians realize businesses don't want this bill.

    Actually it's because people are afraid to speak out that we now are supposed to accept this as real.

    God Bless Texas.

    To me the issue are the rules on this forum. That's what is keeping my lips zipped.

    Don't talk about Texas like that, that's my home state. "Backwards" is an interesting description. If 40 year old men are allowed to share bathrooms with little girls, then that might just mean that "forward thinking" has derailed. Is there any social issue that is better for having some restrictions? There certainly is, and this "forward thinking" is harming the safety of women and girls everywhere. Texas better pass this, and show the rest of the nation how to stand up to "forward thinking"

    I like this, Jerry has a real chance to start his own league where the Cowboys win everything for the first few years. Jerry already has rights to the Cowboys logo and merchandise.

    Can you explain why the NFL suddenly thinks it is the judge and jury for every state? It is now acting as the government, overriding every state's sovereignty. That doesn't fly in Texas.
