USA TODAY – This season’s ACC championship game for football is moving to Orlando, the conference announced Thursday.
Camping World Stadium, the site of the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl and the Russell Athletic Bowl, will host the game on Dec. 3.
The league was looking for a site after earlier this month announcing it would move its neutral site championships out of North Carolina for the 2016-17 season in response to the state’s controversial House Bill 2.
The law prevents cities and counties from passing protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity. And public schools must require bathrooms or locker rooms be designated for use only by people based on their biological sex.
The ACC followed the lead of the NCAA, which said it would relocate its championships for 2016-17. The NBA moved its the All-Star game in Charlotte for the same reasons in July.
If I’m a major business owner in the State of North Carolina I fucking hate Gov. Pat McCrory. It doesn’t even matter what your political views are, here are just some of the events and major business deals that North Carolina has now lost due to House Bill 2: NBA All Star Game, March Madness, concerts like Bruce Springsteen, new facilities for Deutsche Bank and PayPal costing a combined 650 new jobs, and a Lionsgate production shoot. Think about how much income is being lost for the state. It’s NUTS. Not just that, but four states have even banned publicly funded employee travel to North Carolina. And now the ACC Championship Game is taking off for Orlando. We’re talking millions and millions of dollars being taken out of both small and big businesses. One study by the Center for American Progress said the state could potentially lose up to $567.5 million in economic impact. The amount of money this guy has cost the state and major companies because he can’t handle a tranny using a bathroom with the gender they identify with is just absolutely ridiculous.
P.S. I mostly hate him because now I’m going to have to buy a plane ticket to Orlando when Clemson clinches the Atlantic division championship.
