NFL can’t afford to fumble now
Boston Globe - 09/22/2014
Dan Lebowitz has watched with dismay as the lords of pro football have tied themselves up in knots over their inept handling of domestic violence cases involving their players.
America’s favorite sport has turned into a nightmare, the action on the field overshadowed in recent weeks by terrible behavior off of it. Many observers have called for the firing of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell over his handling of allegations of violence by players against women in their lives.
Lebowitz runs the Center for the Study of Sport in Society at Northeastern University. The title of the program doesn’t really convey all that it does. One of its major activities is counseling teams and sports leagues on how to deal with social issues that overlap with sports.
