Incoming Attorney General Jeff Sessions should oppose the campaign by the National Collegiate Athletic Association to impose gender-fluid transgender laws on the states’ citizens, says sportscaster Craig James.
“I certainly hope the Attorney General — when he takes office — lets them know that everything is on the table, [such as items] that would benefit the student athletes and the general public as well,” James told Breitbart News, when asked about the NCAA’s transgender push.
The renewed campaign for the transgender ideology by the university chiefs who run the NCAA more than justifies a broad review by the federal government of the NCAA’s cartel-like practices, said James, a former NFL players and sportscaster. That review should include the NCAA’s practice of paying millions of dollars to coaches while providing only low-cost educational subsidies to the hard-working athletes who generate the revenue for the universities’ sports teams, he said.
Once Sessions is confirmed at AG, “I’m sure he would like to take a look [because] the student athletes really need a voice at the table,” James said. “Maybe this [NCAA transgender threat] will be for the good of college athletes,” he added.
“Why is the NCAA in the business of …. forcing politics on other people?” he asked.
The sex and gender issue is back in the news because the NCAA is set to boycott North Carolina for several years unless the legislature eliminates its compromise HB-2 law.
The HB-2 law says the legislature has the authority to set rules for how adults change their legal sex and their birth certificates. The law also says adults can change their documents, but only after undergoing medical procedures.
