North Carolina’s bathroom law puts NCAA events at risk: official

by
February 7, 2017

North Carolina is close to losing NCAA championship events for six years at a cost of more than $250 million because of a law that restricts bathroom access for transgender people, a local sports official told state lawmakers on Monday.

The governing body for U.S. college athletics is reviewing bids to host events through spring 2022, including 133 from North Carolina cities and universities, said Scott Dupree, executive director of the Greater Raleigh Sports Alliance.

The law known as House Bill 2, which bars transgender people from using government-run restrooms that match their gender identity and limits local nondiscrimination protections, will doom the state’s chances, Dupree wrote in a letter.

“Our contacts at the NCAA tell us that, due to their stance on HB 2, all North Carolina bids will be pulled from the review process and removed from consideration,” said Dupree, adding he was sharing the information on behalf of the North Carolina Sports Association.

The NCAA did not respond to a request for comment.

The organization has already moved championship events, including two rounds of the prominent Division I men’s basketball tournament, from the hoops-loving state for the current academic year in protest at the measure.

    The NCAA is to blame here. We should do what we can to boycott NCAA events, and if we can’t boycott, then send them letters.

  • justinwachin says:

    Maybe its time for schools to cut off their funds from the NCAA and start their own sports leagues. The NCAA should not be allowed to dictate state laws or interfere in state politics. If the NCAA has tax exempt status North Carolina should pressure Congress to pull the status since they are now a political organization.

    The Constitution doesn’t give sports leagues or businesses (Apple I’m thinking of you) the right to dictate state laws. The NCAA is a sports monopoly which needs to face government regulation.

    I hope on lgbtq and transgender fans still go to all these events. I for one will not watch one (rarely anyway) even if it was the only thing to watch. Rather read a book, go to a bar and bs with friends, etc.

  • Pete Bundy says:

    It looks the majority has to bow to the will of a very small minority. Of course this is how you destroy a country, just look at history. And as far as the NCAA it would be fine with me if UNC, NC State, WFU, Duke all left the ACC and formed a new league. Bring in Ap State and ECU and see how things go.

    WHY DO YOU THINK ANYTHING OBAMA HAS DONE IS LEGAL, HE HAS CONFESSED TO BEING A MUSLIM ON NATION WIDE TV. EVERYTHING HE HAS SIGNED, OR ORDERED IN 8 YEARS IS ILLEGAL.

    WHY DID HILLIARY HAVE A MUSLIM FROM A RADICAL FAMILY AS HER TOP AIDE FOR 10 YEARS, HUMA COULD BE A PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS TO THE MUSLIM WORLD.

    WHY HAS OBAMA SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH MUSLIMS ANOTHER PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS. HE HAS DECLARED HIMSELF A MUSLIM ON NATIONWIDE TV.

    WHY DOES THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA SAY HE IS NOT A MUSLIM, WHEN I HAVE A LIST OF WHERE 34 TIMES HE HAS EITHER HELPED THEM OR SAID HE WAS ONE.

    WHY GET MAD AT PUTIN, HE SAID THAT THERE WAS NO PLACE IN RUSSIA FOR ANYONE THAT WOULD NOT FOLLOW THEIR LAW AND SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE, THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO TO A COUNTRY THAT DID.

    WHY HAS HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY AND THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO HELP THE RADICAL MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS OBAMA ALLOWED TO SWEAR IN CARLOYN WALKER AS JUDGE IN BROOKLIN USING THE QURAN?

    WHY ALLOW ILLEGALS TO FLOOD OUR COUNTRY WHEN THEY COST MORE PER YEAR THAN THE IRAQ WAR.

    WHY SEND BILLIONS TO MUSLIM COUNTRIES TRYING TO KILL US.

    WHY DONT THE BIASED MEDIA REPORT ALL THIS.

    YOU SAY THAT A MUSLIM TRY AT A TAKEOVER IS IMPOSSIBLE, I CAN TAKE 100 WELL ARMED PEOPLE AND TAKE ANY BASE IN 1 HOUR, OUR TROOPS ARE NOT ARMED.

    BETTER COAT ALL YOU AMMO WITH PIGS BLOOD OR GREASE, LET THE WORLD KNOW YOU ARE DOING SO.

    TRUMP IS NOW THE PRESIDENT, SO, GET ON BOARD AND HELP HIM STRAIGHTEN THIS MESS OUT. PRAY FOR HIS PROTECTION EACH DAY.

    I HAVE A LOT MORE FACTS IF ANYONE WANTS THEM. SHARE THIS.

    You know what Scott Dupree, of the Greater Raleigh Sports Alliance, can do with his blackmail attempt?
    Think bottoms.

  • CrustyOldGeezer says:

    If the ncaa isn’t sure, then perhaps they should not be held up as role models by the State.

    Just who really gives a rats ass about the nba’s stance on perversion?

    1. bobnstuff says:

      How many job does $250 million create. What is the tax from that kind of business? Do you even understand what being Transgenders is? They can move the games to Pennsylvania, We will that the money.

      1. Retired says:

        Most of that money goes to the upper people , the concession workers are lucky to get minimum wages without benefits. Plus very few are full time . Who owns the Buildings that games are played in ?? So how much of that actually goes into the state coffers ??

        1. bobnstuff says:

          In Pittsburgh all the concession workers are union and they do alright. The venues will be either College or owned by the city so they will do OK plus these things bring in tourists so the hotels and restaurants make money. It is worth getting the games. Back a number of years a go I was a manager for the Downtown Pittsburgh Domino’s and we sure could tell when one of these events were going on. We had to keep track so we could have the manpower on hand. In the end between 6% to 10% should go to the state in taxes.

          1. Retired says:

            It is like you point out, depending on the state you live in Some places the concessions are served by volenters and a percentage goes to non profits.

          2. bobnstuff says:

            There is still a lot of money going into the local economy and they could miss it over something a stupid as Transgender bathroom rights. I find it interesting that people think there children will be raped by transgender people in restrooms. I will admit the trans crowd is a like strange but they are probably safer around others the straight people. These people identify as the sex of the restroom they are using, They aren’t interested with sex any more then anyone else in that bathroom. There are to many people with dirty minds out there who are afraid of that which they don’t know.

          3. Retired says:

            What is so hard for people to understand, until you had the surgery and legal change of sex documented you don’t belong in the wrong bathroom or locker room. Put on a dress and go into a womans bathroom at a event ,to see how fast you get arrested. These people are as deranged as their Lawyers supporting them. It is going down to grade school in parts of the country . Equal rights did a number on the US.

          4. bobnstuff says:

            Ever been in a women’s restroom? I used to have to clean them back in high school and this isn’t some place that you would want to have to clean if you didn’t have to. Women are much worse then men as far as keeping the restroom clean. Also there are doors on the stalls, Which means to me that there is nothing to see. In other countries I’m told they don’t have men’s bathroom and women’s bathroom’s they just have bathrooms.

          5. Retired says:

            That is because the women do not have to clean them like at home. Those bathrooms you are talking about are for one person .
