    Conference championship events for this year, some other states face potential
    challenges in the organizations fight for discrimination-free environments.The
    NCAA this week took the unprecedented step of pulling seven championship events
    from the state over its objection to a law that can allow discrimination against
    LGBT people. Two days later, the ACC did the same thing -- relocating all 10 of
    its neutral-site championships from the state the conference has called home
    since its founding in 1953.At issue in North Carolina is the law known as HB2,
    which excludes gender identity and sexual orientation from statewide
    antidiscrimination protections. It also requires transgender people to use
    restrooms in schools and state government buildings that correspond to the
    gender on their birth certificate.When the NCAA announced its antidiscrimination
    policy last spring, it said it was tracking the actions of legislatures in
    several states but did not identify them. A questionnaire event organizers must
    complete during the bidding process asks them to identify any laws that might
    lead to discrimination.In announcing the moves, the NCAA pointed out that North
    Carolinas situation was unique in that it has the only statewide transgender
    bathroom law in the nation. Plus, five states and several cities dont allow
    public employees and representatives of public institutions to travel there
    because of HB2.Here are four states that might eventually wind up on the NCAAs
    radar:----TEXASRepublican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has suggested the state will take
    up school bathroom access in 2017, and the state is leading an 11-state lawsuit
    that accuses the federal government of turning schools into a massive social
    experiment. Voters last November overturned a Houston ordinance that extended
    nondiscrimination protections to gay and transgender people. Opponents used a
    campaign featuring the slogan, No Men in Womens Bathrooms. San Antonio is
    scheduled to host the 2018 Final Four and Dallas is hosting first- and
    second-round games in 2018. Dallas will host the Womens Final Four next
    spring.----GEORGIAThough Republican Gov. Nathan Deal in March vetoed a religious
    freedom bill that critics say would have limited LGBT peoples rights, some
    conservatives have vowed to revive the measure -- known as HB757 -- in 2017. The
    NFL has said the bill, if passed, could jeopardize Atlantas bid for future Super
    Bowls. The NCAA mens basketball South Regional semifinals and final is set for
    Atlanta in 2018, while the Division I mens and womens tennis championships are
    scheduled for Athens in 2017.----TENNESSEEOfficials at Memphis have said any
    decision about the 2017 South Regional semifinals and finals -- which theyre
    scheduled to host -- rests with the NCAA after the state passed a law that
    allows therapists to decline to see patients based on religious values and
    personal principles. That led to a lawsuit in June filed by gay rights
    activists, who claim it targets LGBT people. It also led the American Counseling
    Association to cancel its planned conference in Nashville -- which also is
    scheduled to host opening-weekend games in the 2018 mens basketball
    tournament.----MISSISSIPPIThe state hasnt hosted any predetermined NCAA
    championship events since 2001 because the Confederate battle flag appears on
    the state flag. Appealing a judges ruling against a law that was supposed to
    take effect July 1 likely wont do the Magnolia State any favors in the sports
    organizations eyes. The religious objection law signed by Republican Gov. Phil
    Bryant remains blocked after a federal judge ruled it unconstitutional, with
    U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves in his ruling calling it the states attempt
    to put LGBT people back in their place. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
    last month refused to unblock the law.---(This version removes an incorrect
    reference to state Sen. Josh McKoon sponsoring the Georgia bill.)

    . This should be celebrated because it will not
    always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs
    these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to
    continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team
    in the middle of their season.

    defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. was kicked out of practice Thursday following a
    skirmish with Tampa Bay Buccaneers guard Ali Marpet.Coaches told Fowler to leave
