We have the right to choose -- could have been a financial reason as it was too costly for the little exposure to general public--you always have sidliners who try to call the play when they have no input on it as they are just spectators---not illegal to refuse service to those who don't comply with the guidlines as "No shirt or shoes, no service" Whatever happened to the rule "We reserve the right to refuse service to any one" It is captalism and not democracy with affirmative action that has now been disallowed by most corporations.
