    North Carolina boycott continues - NCAA bans tournaments in the state

    NCAA to move 7 championships from North Carolina due to HB2 law

    "The NCAA announced on Monday the relocation of seven previously awarded championship events including NCAA tournament games in Greensboro from the state of North Carolina during the 2016-17 academic year as a result of the state's controversial House Bill 2.

    The law prevents cities and counties from passing protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity."

    This follows the NBA all-star game and numerous conventions, business openings, concerts, and government travel. However this is very significant because anyone will tell you the voters in north carolina care more about their college basketball tournament than anything and nothing would bring HB2 to a swifter repeal. I'm also shocked because the NCAA is known as a behemoth devoid of humanity. Well, any predictions how this will alter things there?

    Err mods delete if you want since i see now there's another thread

    Just to update - NCAA set to ban North Carolina from hosting events for next six years, according to report - Outsports



    “Our contacts at the NCAA tell us that, due to their stance on HB2, all North Carolina bids will be pulled from the review process and removed from consideration,” Scott Dupree, of the N.C. Sports Association and Greater Raleigh Sports Alliance, wrote.

    “That process will begin in the various sports committees starting in 7 to 10 days and continuing through February. At that point, we will be faced with a six-year drought of NCAA championships in North Carolina.”


    6 years! 57 attempts to host tournaments in Wake County alone with be throttled, all thanks to this hateful and needless law

    It's about time Duke and UNC had to play outside their state before the semifinals. If this is what it takes to make that happen, I'm all for it.

    I can understand "needless", but I don't see "hate" anywhere in the law.

    If we simply had a nationwide law outright criminalizing antisocial behavior such as cross-dressing and pretending to be something you're not, it would definitely be needless.

    It's a pity that the NCAA feels the need to pander to degeneracy, but all the more reason to boycott that hillbilly organization which protects child molesters such as Sandusky and Frank Lombard. All the more reason I'm glad I don't watch college sports to begin with.

    lol i thought that too. I recall reading that nothing would bring an end to the law than this, yet it's happening and still the courts will have to decide its fate. I guess the voters in NC just hate lgbt enough to give up their basketball fix

    the state not allowing cities to ban discrimination against lgbt specifically is absolutely about hate, and if you don't get THAT you're no better than the haters in NC

    The only thing hateful is that they don't allow rounding these miscreants up and putting them away - that's certainly hateful toward people of decency who're being denied the right to remove social bacteria from civilized society.
