Since its creation in 1869, football has been a major part of American society. Americans love the intensity and display of sportsmanship on and off the field. Every Sunday almost every television in America is tuned to CBS, NBC or FOX anticipating the opening kickoff for their favorite team. The National Football League, popularly known as just the NFL, is the largest professional American football league in the world. It hosts a total of 32 teams, each representing a state in the U.S. Some states are lucky enough to have more than one team representing different cities. Football season usually gets started around early August with all 32 teams playing at least four exhibition games. These pre-season games are good for introducing rookie
Football is probably the toughest sport out there and can cause life threatening brain disease such as C.T.E otherwise known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy. Not only can a football player get this disease, but also a concussion and injuries. With many people playing football for either high school, college, or even the N.F.L there can be serious consequences to playing this sport. Football is rough, but I wouldn’t be against teens playing this sport during their high school years.
Death was in the air at the home of “The Hurricanes”. The confetti was beginning to settle on the spray painted fields, and so was our laughter as we started to realize the magnitude of the situation. Carlos might be dead. But that couldn’t be, the hit didn’t seem that hard considering the newly designed helmets UM received. They were suppose to be patented to the new NFL guidelines, so that means visors, padding, concussion-indicating mouthguards, the whole package. And no NFL player has ever died on the field...or that I can think of. With all those improvements, why didn’t Carlos get up? Why did he have to be pulled out in a stretcher with an AED attached to his chest? Why didn’t Carlos live to play another game?
And you can only imagine the things that have happened since then. Recently, Jay Gruden was named 29th head coach in redskins history and the team is still on its way to glory. The redskins debut as a football team was september 16th, 1937. And since then, people have gone to love and hate the redskins for various reasons, whether it be that the redskins had beaten another team or that they won the super bowl. Either way, the redskins have impacted the NFL if you like it or not.
John Kass and Kevin Grier and Tyler Cowen are influential people that have the same opinion that football will end in the future. While they share many of the same key concepts but they have different attitudes of how the sport will end.

Teams like the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, New York Giants and Washington Redskins are considered charter members, because of their early inception into the professional sports league.

The term sport is highly complex and often tough for people to define. Concepts that are associated with sport can be equally hard to understand. One such concept is deviance among athletes. Coakley states that “Deviance occurs when a person’s ideas, traits, or actions are perceived by others to fall outside the normal range of acceptance in a society” (Coakley, 2015, p.108). These normal ranges of acceptance are created by societal norms. There are two kinds of norms; “formal, which are explicitly written rules or laws and informal, which are unwritten customs and traditions of how a person should think and act in society” (Coakley, 2015, p.108). In order to be able to examine deviance, one must first define the norms in their area of interest. For the purposes of this paper, the area of interest is football. Football is a social world in which the prevalence of deviance is high. There are many levels of football, and this paper focuses on High School football players.

The multi-billion dollar industry that is the National Football League (NFL), is on the losing side of the constant Tug-of-War between self-interest and mutuality of interest. For decades, the NFL’s only concern was ensuring high revenue and return of profit with little social responsibility. Due to social media and viral videos, however, social responsibility has become a focal point in mass media. Roger Goodell, the Commissioner of the NFL, knows this all too well. His undefined authorities overseeing the NFL, particularly pertaining to player “conduct issues”, currently have him under fire. Recently dubbed “The Enforcer” in 2012 by Time Magazine, Roger Goodell has been praised for his

Well it’s finally here, week 1 of the NFL season. Giants are traveling down to Arlington Texas to face off with division rivals, the Dallas Cowboys. A lot of story lines coming into this game we can look at here.
There is no question that everything people do in their lives involves physics. This is true from the way we communicate to the way that we fight wars. In some cases the influence of the laws of physics on our world are extremely apparent, such as in sports. Basketball, hockey, baseball and even cricket involve physics. From the most basic motions players perform in the game, to different plays designed by coaches, physics touches it all. These appearances of physics in the games that we play are sometimes so subtle we don’t even notice them. In other cases however, the impact of physics can be heard across the stadium as Jerome “The Bus” Bettis barrels his way into the endzone. The influences of physics on
