Support Growing For NFL To Move Super Bowl If Arizona Passes Right To Refuse Service
Published February 26, 2014
LOST IN THE DESERT: ESPN.com's Kevin Seifert wrote, "I can't envision a scenario in which the NFL plays the Super Bowl in Arizona if Brewer allows the bill to become law." The NFL "awarded this game to Arizona long before SB 1062 became an issue." But part of the Super Bowl bid "for any site is to remain in compliance with all NFL rules and policies." Seifert: "The guess here, based on the NFL's statement, is that Arizona would run afoul of that requirement under SB 1062." The logistics of moving a Super Bowl less than a year out "would be a nightmare for NFL employees, but it wouldn't compare to the fallout of playing in a state that provides an authorized platform for discrimination" (ESPN.com, 2/25). A DENVER POST editorial is written under the header, "Use Your Power In Arizona, NFL." If Brewer "does not veto this measure" the NFL "should take its 2015 Super Bowl away" (DENVER POST, 2/26).
