GEORGIA – The NFL and Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank have said they oppose Georgia’s so-called “religious freedom” bill which has been sent to the governor’s desk that protects opponents of same-sex marriage because of concerns it could lead to discrimination. Atlanta has launched bid to host the Super Bowl in 2019 and is a finalist for that year and for 2020. So make no mistake, this is about business first and foremost.
And furthermore, the NFL should move out of its glass house before it starts throwing bricks. How about taking a strong stand against domestic abuse? How about cracking down hard on some of its criminal players. Deal with the problem you have now before going on another political crusade.
