Olbermann points out that the NFL was quick to take action when Arizona sought to enact a similar law before Super Bowl XLIX, with the state's governor subsequently choosing to veto the legislation.

The host also points out that the NCAA, which is headquartered in Indianapolis, should also look to move its offices if the state does not clarify or outright repeal the law, which many have argued will open the door for discrimination against gays and possibly many other groups.
