SoCon Asheville Boycott
The SoCon is considering the possibility of pulling the basketball tournament out of Asheville because of HB2.

For the record, this also annoys me, and I will be very disappointed if I can't attend in Asheville. However you feel about transgender politics is your own business. Boycotting policies, even through business tactics, is an American right.

True, but the NCAA is a non-profit/tax-exempt organization that operates in conjunction with public and private universities.

I miss when companies stayed out of politics and policies all together but in today's world a company's profile is more at risk by staying quiet because special interest groups and the media will paint them as bigots just by not taking a stance.

This could really end up hurting the NCAA by alienating the conservative base that has always supported scholarship athletics and the amateur status. If they lose that group that are in trouble because most liberals would love to abolish college athletics all together.

Is Freedom Hall a possibility, or would other teams explode due to it not being a neutral site?

The SoCon tournament belongs in a neutral location.

And yes, it is an american right to boycott, protest, and since for so many years, we've heard that a corporation/entity is a person, a person can put their money where they want or not.

Bottom line: How many on here want their daughters, granddaughters, wives in the same locker room (and showers) with biological males who describe themselves as females? Does this NC law protect or discriminate?

My wife says she's fine with it, and she scares the hell out of me.

It should stay in Asheville. Period! If you start allowing current politics into the NCAA it'll be never ending. Knee jerk reactions can prove fatal.
