Sympathies for the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint families in Texas are now reverberating beyond the courtroom and into the arena.

Some Utah supporters of the FLDS families are calling for the cancellation of the next two playoff games between the Utah Jazz and the Houston Rockets.

Salt Lake City attorney Bob Breeze is calling for a protest rally tomorrow night and Saturday outside the EnergySolutions Arena. He says this is the perfect opportunity to get nationwide media coverage on the civil rights violations being committed in Texas.

Breeze is asking local FLDS supporters to show up at the hotel rooms of the Rockets' players. "We're working on a plan to have a number of the polygamist women go and have a meeting with the team players," he said.

He says he will provide the paint to make your own protest signs.
