New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman asked the National Football League, which has headquarters in New York, to issue a public statement and league-wide policy that any form of discrimination or harassment on the basis of sexual orientation by teams against recruits or players “constitutes a violation of state, local and, in some cases, contractual law, and will not be tolerated.”
