NCAA yanks seven championship events from North Carolina

Post by DoubleDipper on Mon Sep 12, 2016 6:51 pm

The NCAA has announced they will be moving seven 2016-17 academic year championship events from North Carolina due to the state's controversial House Bill 2 law.....the "Bathroom Bill" that requires transgender people to use the bathroom that corresponds with the gender they were assigned at birth.

No word yet on where the championships will be held, but here's the list of those that will not be in North Carolina:

2016 Division I womenís soccer championship, College Cup Dec. 2 and 4.
2016 Division III menís and womenís soccer championships Dec. 2 and 3.
2017 Division I menís basketball championship, first and second rounds March 17 and 19.
2017 Division I womenís golf championships, regional May 8 to 10.
2017 Division III menís and womenís tennis championships, May 22 to 27.
2017 Division I womenís lacrosse championship, May 26 and 28.
2017 Division II baseball championship, May 27 to June 3.

Once again, the NCAA punishes people who have nothing (or at least very little) to do with the bad act!

BTW - Would it have been a felony under NC Law for me to use the women's restroom at the Warrenton marina when there was a big line for the men's room and nobody in the women's? Probably would have to register as a sex offender. Got to love laws that solve problems that don't exist.

The NCAA & NBA gave NC plenty of time to reconsider the law, which they have not. The ACC is meeting this week, and may take similar actions....
