Texas Gov. Greg Abbott recently responded to a threat by NFL league spokesman Brian McCarthy, who insists on making Texas adopt transgender policies if it wants to see another Super Bowl.
McCarthy’s threat was made via email and reads, in part: “If a proposal that is discriminatory or inconsistent with our values were to become law there, that would certainly be a factor considered when thinking about awarding future events.”
The proposal McCarthy is referencing requires people to use the bathroom that corresponds to the sex on their birth certificate. A similar bill was recently adopted in North Carolina.

Abbott responded to McCarthy’s statement via Twitter and compared the threat to Tom Brady’s having been suspended prior to winning the Super Bowl.
“NFL decision makers also benched Tom Brady last season,” the tweet read. “It ended with NFL handing the Super Bowl trophy to Brady.”

This isn’t the first time the NFL has tried to push pro-transgender policies on a state. It reports Georgia was also threatened in 2015 after a similar bill was introduced in Atlanta. That bill was later vetoed by Georgia’s governor.
