    As has been pointed out to me by Con posters, not every conservative poster thinks alike.
    So, one needs to have a disclaimer if mentioning legitimate rape or Ted Nugent or whatever the latest Akin moment is, as "I" have been told.

    Just as we know that CON ads and hit posts have a disclaimer
    that not all LIBs feel a certain way about ACA, IRS, Benghazi, VRA, GLBT, and the rest .

    Now that the NFL is applying grammar rules next year, how do they think Fans will react to throwing Gay and Racial slurs?
    The USA is infamous as the World's leader in just saying yes to any edict that "just says no".
    And wait until the NFL draft, when the Gay Black Defensive guy from MIZZOU is drafted.
    Fans at the draft are well-known for booing the picks of their own teams .

That would make this the NFL and the US the new promoters of gay segregation. What is next, no gays allowed in restaurants? No gays allowed to work at schools, shops, sports, restaurants, etc. etc.

    The US stopped segregation a few decades back and it would be immoral to create a new segregation/a new batch of Jim Crow laws but now for gays. Discrimination is immoral and should be fought tooth and nail, and not promoted by political parties.
    If they are a private organization than like any other private entity they have the right to decide who they will associate and do business with. It is hardly immoral to uphold the right to association, the right to property, right to ones own labor, right to ones own service, and contract.

    One shower for the gay players, the other shower for the heterosexual players and cheerleaders.

    He's not a politician but a lobbyist. Until some politician actually picks it up and proposes the bill as legislation it's all just wind from some dude.

The market is where people should fight this battle, but of course, neither side listens to me.
    I agree with that, but part of me objects because the NFL is a government pet project. Cut them off from the teat and then I fully agree with you.

    Hello clownboy.
    Are any ex-politicians lobbyists?
    How about Politicians who are ex-lobbyists?

    How much influence do Lobbyists have on Politicians, such as with all of the "scorecards"?
    Don't Lobbyists from all Interests write Legislation for the Politicians who they then pay off to submit said legislation ?

    i dont know about "very small" but id agree with "minority" for sure but then again those words are very subjective
