Posted on 02/27/2014 9:50:25 PM PST by This Just In
Hours before Republican Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed the controversial "religious freedom" bill on Wednesday that would have allowed businesses to refuse service to individuals, including gays and lesbians, based on religious grounds, the NFL started exploring options to potentially move the 2015 Super Bowl from Arizona if Brewer signed the law.

You mean the tax exempt NFL that has a tax free status?
F the NFL and all of the other corporate homo lovers.
That’s the one. Same one which forces taxpayers to pay for its stadiums.
We are done with the NFL.
Pushing sexual/homosexual teaching onto prepubescent boys.
Not in my house ever again.
How can I become tax exempt and get free stadiums built with taxpayer money???They must be special!
when will the NFL stand up for MY rights as a Christian?....why is okay to discriminate against me and my kind?????
I’m beginning to hate the NFL.
Their local owner is trying to shake down my country for a new taxpayer-funded stadium, and the game itself has become an over-the-top commercial spectacle.
“Im beginning to hate the NFL.”
I’m pleased that we don’t have a representative of that Sodomy party here in SoCal.
The NFL hired Penn & Teller for pre-game entertainment after they famously mocked the crucifixion of Jesus. They aren't a tolerant organization, they are a bunch of fascist libtards reaping billions off the public teat.
I guess more voters hate unemployment than hate gays.
they are dreaming that their audience is truly, Imus style, gay rights promoters and not p whipped and not secretly disgusted at all of this.
Well, I don’t know. I’m a girl so...
I just think they’re off the sidewalk on this.
They pay no taxes. They have no loyalties. they charge way too much and now they’re abandoning their culture?
Im pleased that we dont have a representative of that Sodomy party here in SoCal.
This has nothing to do with hate of any kind. It’s about religious rights.
Politics and the bugnut Christians

Unholy act (Penn & Teller)

OUTRAGED Catholics wanted comic-magicians Penn & Teller removed from ABCs Super Bowl special over an act they performed featuring Jesus, a midget angel and a sex act. The duo - who are scheduled to perform on ABCs pre- and post-game show from Times Square - acted out the controversial bit at the World Magic Seminar in Rio last week. When the Catholic Leagues William A. Donohue got wind of it, he fired a letter to ABC saying that such “an incredibly anti-Christian statement” should not be “rewarded.” A network rep told the Las Vegas Review Journal that Penn & Teller are still in the show....
The case in Texas isn’t even about love or marriage, it’s about two carpetbagging dykes from Massachusetts trying to get Texas to “divorce” them.
And I’m not at all anti gay. We should coexist and not talk about sex. I am not in favor of mistreatment of anyone.
And that includes young people, pre pubescent, who really cannot take hearing about sex and certainly not illicit or perverted....
that’s all this is.
We are all forced to think about what they do. And I’m done with the NFL and their pornography commercials.
Ditto! The NFL can celebrate sodomy all by themselves.
How about a bonfire? Everyone can burn their NFL jerseys, etc.
Yup. Same here, I’m dome with them.
Pshaw, threatening the governor, transforming culture.
Me and mine have been drifting away from pro football for a few years now, and have been acquiring a taste for college ball (same goes for basketball). The events of the past few months pretty much guarantee we’ll say ‘adios’ to the nfl in all but a very few games.
The nerve of these NFL deadbeats charging people 100.00USD a game and massive parking fees along with 10 dollar beers is insanity!These people are way overpaid just like the federal government.
They should relocate to another country and pay taxes!
My father was invited to try out with the Lions. Still Have the letter.
He wisely declined, thinking it was a bad career choice - the college they chose for his scholarship educated him too well at the behest of his guardian (auntie)
What to make of it? in 50 years, it will be a forgotten gay rights organization like PBS.
can we then say, your great grandfather was a draftee for the NFL? Weill they say, He was gay? No. But he was a marine, a fighter pilot, a great athlete, a great family man, uncle, father, nephew, friend, husband. A great business man, salesman (top in the country at age 45, corporate VP big company)
The other subject would take over.
The NFL is an idiotic group of Neanderthals for this.
Done with them
NFL needs to be forced to answer why they oppose religious freedom
San Diego is not in SoCal?
I had pretty much given up on the NFL and most other professional sports. This definitely shuts the door.
Are there any institutions that haven’t been taken over by the left? Sports and the military were the last ones standing, and now they’ve gone the way of hollywood, the press, the schools, etc, etc.
Now I know what the NFL stands for:
National Freeloaders League (tax exempt)
National Frightened Leaders
National Fubar League
When do women start playing in the National Feminist League?
Now the players are often thugs and the leadership is a bunch of pussies.
Another American tradition dying at the hands of the feminist Leftist males.
Perry is a talker , I hope Abbott is a do’er
Why stop at the SB? Why not pull the Arizona franchise? They could become the Los Angeles Pillow Biters.
Anyone and everyone that believes in the US Constitution, believes the Word of God, believes in morals, has to write or call the NFL and tell them they nwill not accept the NFL threatening or interefering with Americans establishing laws to protect the Constitutional rights of the citizens.
I will agree with the homos as soon as the United Negro College Fund starts sending money to white, hispanic, and asian kids.
They banned firearms ads this year. I’m done with them.
That’s it. I’m done with the NFL. I’m going to avoid watching any NFL football games this next year. Just like I have done for the last decade or so.
Don't insult Neanderthals. They didn't dance around in pink tu tu's praising people who have sex with other men's anuses.
If I could send less money their way, I would.
I've already started digging my family's catacombs. It might be a good idea for the rest of you to get started so we can eventually link them up.
They didn’t have a contract? The NFL now writes or vetoes legislation?
Looks like it, doesn’t it, Jan Brewer?
Probably about the time you and others make the connection and stop voting for lesser evils that empower them. Because as long as the NFL and pro sports orgs are fear free for their tax status, they will keep pushing further and further.
And lesser evil politicians will never hold that against them. Can’t have it both ways Cherry. Bummer huh?
I gave up on them years ago. I haven’t watched or listened to a game in over 20 years.
Before that I used to have a pair of season tickets.
One day, I just said, “Screw this!” and never looked back. It’s nice to not be stuck in front of the TV every Sunday. That instantly made college football much less interesting and now I have my Saturdays free, too.
The older I get, the less I need to be “entertained.”
I wonder how many will stop watching NFL because it’s getting too gay.
Jan Brewer would have vaulted to frontrunner in the 2016 Presidential election had she signed the bill.
And the NFL could pull out of the United States for all I care.
I can easily see the desperate pleas to not risk the Superbowl.
Westgate business owners have taken a beating and the mall is barely staying above water with all of the hockey drama and other financial disasters, like every day since obama was elected.
I'm not saying I approve of Christian persecution, but I'm absolutely seeing where financial pressures might compel the governor to find a way out of signing the bill into law.
It’s an outrage that the NFL threatens a state over a political issue regardless of the issue. Talk about bullying!
There was a walpo ANALysis of Arizona politics reprinted in the local rag today. The summary would be: Arizona is GOP ultra conservative territory filled with homophobes and racists who believe the missing link in the white house was not born here. Brewer only vetoed the bill because the NFL threated to pull its game over the anti fag bill (of course it was mischaracterized). No mention of course that both senators from that state are not conservatives rather just some anti GOP rhetoric citing that their older population tends to be socially conservative, a new stigma.
