No Super Bowl for Texas? NFL plays hardball over “Bathroom Bill”

David MenziesMission Specialist

Did you catch the historic Super Bowl game in Houston? What a thrilling fourth quarter, but it might be the last time Houston ever gets to host a Super Bowl thanks to the NFL embracing the tyranny of political correctness.

A proposed bill in Texas, if passed, could mean that Houston and Dallas would no longer be considered to host the Super Bowl because Bill 6 requires people to use the bathroom corresponding with the gender on their birth certificates. Imagine that.

Yet again, the trannies are up in arms. Guys with penises pretending to be women, and women with vaginas pretending to be men, want to use whichever bathroom they damn well please, and incredibly, the NFL agrees.

Watch as I explain the NFL’s position, which is all about “inclusiveness”, and Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick’s response explaining why there’s nothing problematic about the bathroom bill.

But, it's not good enough. The NFL wants the bill banished entirely.

Once again, a private, non-elected entity like the NFL – just like the NBA in North Carolina - is dictating moral and ethical standards to an entire nation.

Apparently the NFL doesn’t know its own fan-base. I bet most team owners aren’t on board with this sabre-rattling either. This madness emanates from the social justice whiners at league headquarters.

The most successful sports league in the world shouldn’t alienate its base. NFL TV ratings were down in the U.S., likely in part due to the Colin Kaepernick travelling freak show — a colossal turn-off for most football fans.

I’ll wager the NFL's hardline stance on something that only affects a minuscule number of people who might in fact be suffering from mental illness, is only going to further alienate those hardcore football fans the league depends on.

How dare a private corporation make a decision that it believes is in its financial interest? All companies should have to bow down to the almighty President and to the State of Texas!

I am referring to if the CFL would deny a city the grey cup if the province did not have a trans washroom rights law.

Space moose… What planet have you been living on.!! There is already freaks using the little girls change rooms and shower rooms thanks to Rachel .!! Alberta was the last province made to come on board with that.!!

Maybe Vince McMahon can bring back the XFL. McMahon is a republican and would never impose this stupidity on the fans.

I wonder if the CFL will follow suit with this policy.

People should boycott the NFL and NBA ! This whole socialist bs is getting ridiculous, let’s have a civil war already or divide the country !

They cannot have a single gender neutral bathroom (e.g. family toilet) for the confused or trans or anybody wanting privacy? Why does everything have to be so political?

Simple solution. Have two washrooms with pix of dogs labeled “pointers” and “setters”. Problem solved:

Greg West: I agree with you 100%. The bathroom argument is wasteful. Why spend a minute on it, when there is an all you can eat buffet.

Oh, The irony.

A bunch of fat-cats who have gotten rich flogging an over-hyped, over commercialized game played by criminal ghetto thugs who behave like Genghis Khan off-field (and are covered-up for and protected by said fat-cats), are now butt-hurt over the state of Texas backing the will of the majority and refusing to cater to the bathroom demands of the irrational and delusional.

So I guess we can expect to see “tranny” NFL players and their sympathizers taking a knee during the National Anthem now, too?

Here’s an idea. Just shut up and play your game.

when did this all go wrong?

Irrespective of people’s opinions on the gay marriage issue, I applaud the recent marriage of LGBTQ to BLM at the church of the latter day Pride Toronto. Their first announcement of inclusivity and tolerance was to kick the Toronto Police out of their celebration parade. The minority making demands of the minority and winning.
So now the “good” Goodell is forced to be tolerant to the intolerant LGBTQ who in turn have to be tolerant to the even more intolerant demands of the Sorosian Black Lives Matter protesters.
It all boils down to this . When you have no strength of conviction , you are a pawn to the whims of anyone that can scream and rant louder than you can.

I demand my freedoms. I want to drive to the NFL games in whatever manner I want to – never mind those speed limits. I want to toot my horn constantly along the way. Traffic signs and signals infringe my style. I want some crack while I sit, nude, in the stands. I want to use a megaphone to scream vulgarities at the opposite team. I want an open toilet for all sexes. I demand the stadium give me a political placard calling for street violence in protest to anyone who opposes me. The team of my choice that day should wear whatever clothes they want to. I need to have marijuana for my kids and martinis for me while I watch the game. I want a rainbow parade at half time. I want tear gas for fans who look at me wrong. While I’m at it, I want the score to be a tie every time – fairness to the weak team. Hands off from security for rioting in the stands.

I want my First Amendment rights.

I want…

Excuse me. The Thought Police are knocking at my door…

It’s disgusting how the NFL has been hijacked as a vehicle for cultural marxist messaging. It started with firing Hank Jr. for privately criticizing Obama and has gone down hill from there.

I’m done with them, I watch one game a year and now that is gone – with their televised numbers in the sink I wonder if they even care that PC is killing the sport in the red state demographic.

Getting caught up on who uses which bathroom only sets the right back. If the fear is odd-looking trans-people, then they will look odd no matter which bathroom they are in. It’s a bigger assault on liberty to want birth certificate proof for someone taking a piss.

Gridiron football is a wuss sport anyway. As noted by Dan, below, they are armoured up. After each play, they takes a five minute rest.

Nothing like real sports like rugby or Aussie Football, where a dead player is told to shake it off and get back in the game. Could you imagine the Patriots playing some hard hitting game against the All Blacks? New Zealand would demolish New England.

I thought the NFL had something to do with football and not sh*thouses. Sounds like the NFL management is a swamp that needs draining.

My husband is a YUGE football fan, so as a woman I have learned to appreciate & watch the game. That said I am sure there are people of all different “persuasions” who like the game. I think it is nuts to have several different bathroom titles, maybe just add a few individual bathrooms for whoever may come along & identify other than male or female.
