Pro Football Players in the News : Two Sides of the Story

Pro Football Players in the News : Two Sides of the Story

by Brian C. Peterson, Kate O'Hara

Hardcover(Library Binding)



"Pro football player arrested on assault charge"… "All-pro quarterback named man of the year by community group." Headlines like the first are all-too-common, but what about the second? Are misbehaving players the tiny minority or the norm? Or has society become less accepting of "boys being boys"? And are the hundreds of players who do not get in trouble being treated fairly? How the NFL interacts with society-and how the NFL treats lawbreakers-is a huge issue. A longtime football writer takes a broad look at the issue and tries to answer some of those questions. Professional football is the most popular and successful sports league in American history. This series doesn't focus only on star players and big games, though. Instead, it takes a broader, deeper look at the sport off the field. The insider experience of the authors reveals the secrets that make the NFL No. 1. Just because you know what team won the Super Bowl doesn't mean you know All About Professional Football
