HOMEWORK

The Sports Lead now. A divided reaction after the NCAA’s sting decision to yank seven tournaments out of North Carolina over the state’s so-called “Bathroom Law”, the NCAA calling the law discriminatory for restricts of course transgender individuals from using restrooms labeled differently than the gender on their birth certificate. Today two of the State’s biggest athletic Para-houses Duke University and the far superior University of North Carolina both praise the NCAA’s decision, but others describe it as a double-standard. CNN’s Martin Savidge joining us now with both sides of the debate. Martin, the NCAA’s move is a huge financial head for the Tar Heel State.

Oh, yeah, absolutely. I mean, and then you add that to the NBA pulling out the All-Star game and other financial impacts. Some suggest it’s tens of millions, others say the total impact of HB2 negatively dollarize is up to1$00 million for this State of North Carolina. But the NCAA says: “Look, it’s not about money. It’s not about cleansing sports. It’s not even about championships. This is about fairness.” Let me read you their statement: “We believe in providing a safe and respectful environment at our events and are committed to providing the best experience possible for college athletes, fans and everyone talking part into our championships.” Well, it didn’t take long for the GOP of North Carolina, their State’s spokesperson to fire back and it was a blistering attack. Here is what Kanu Miller says: “I wish the NCAA was this concerned about the women who were raped at Baylor. Perhaps the NCAA should stop with their political peacocking and instead focus their energies on making sure our nation’s collegiate athletes are safe…” This is an issue that is very close to the heart of many in North Carolina. I’m talking about collegiate basketball here. It used to be said that there are only two things in North Carolina that aren’t political -- basketball and barbecue. Now it seems that is just barbecue.

And right, we’ve seen what happens after today. But Martin, this is playing out in this battleground State in the upcoming elections. What will the political fallout be?

Yeah, well, that is a serious question on a number of funs. You know, let’s talk about Cooper-McCrory race. Pat McCrory there is in a very tight race as he runs for reelection. And he’s taken HB2, House Bill 2 which was once called in North Carolina as sort of the centerpiece -- the focal point of his campaign. He put out the statement later today in which he said…and let me read…he was talking about the fact that this is going to be decided in federal court, and he is urging all sides to wait before they take any rash decisions, but of course the NCAA already acted. He says: “Sadly, the NCAA, a multi-billion dollar tax-exempt monopoly, failed to show this respect at the expense of our student athletes and hard-working men and women.” It could be a Cooper-McCrory race decided by this, but then maybe even a precedential risk where North Carolina is a key swing state here. And already we’ve heard from Hillary Clinton on this matter. She waded in the Tweet saying: “The NCAA is right to pull tournament games from North Carolina because of the anti-LGBT HB2 law. Discrimination has no place in America.” We have not heard from Donald Trump on this. But, you know, these are the kind of passionate issues that will bring people out to the voting booth. So the impact politically could be very big.

All right, Martin Savidge, thank you so much.
