Abstract: For the past few years the NFL has been making headlines relating to their player’s criminal behavior. The media consistently shows incidents of NFL players committing various crimes, ranging from minor public disturbances to serious violent incidences. This research looks at NFL arrests over a span of 14 years in order to examine what types of crimes NFL players tend to commit and what factors can predict these types of crime. The data used for the current research was collected using several databases that contain information on NFL player arrests, as well as other Internet sources to collect additional player and incident information. Results and implications for future research will be discussed.

Abstract: They are bigger, faster, stronger and taller; they generate millions of dollars on the collegiate and professional level; they are heroes of many and many people aspire to be like them at an early age. However in the media they've been portrayed as over-aggressive, gangsters, uneducated and womanizers; this is the black athlete. This study will negate the negative stereotypes that society is placing upon black athletes within the National Football League (NFL). From Michael Vick, Adam Jones, Ray Rice, and Plaxico Burress all of these black athletes have been stereotyped under one of the categories presented above. Focusing on the sport of football, in which the majority of blacks are thought to only play, will be a key point in showing arrests rates concerning blacks in the NFL. Debunking the identity of these athletes concerning sports and crimes will be the focus of the research and how it can affect the psyche of a black athlete. Some may think the media has a tendency to over-exaggerate and over-analyze incidents when it comes to the arrest of black athletes, the fact that this is happening and it seems to constantly happen to NFL athletes shall be researched and dispelled.

Abstract: This paper investigates the interview stage of the National Football League’s (NFL) drafting process, and more specifically, the relationship between the NFL scouts and Black NFL prospects in order to better understand the ways in which the colonial project operates in sports. This theoretical examination uses the psychoanalysis of Frantz Fanon to show how language and articulation, off the field “intelligence,” and criminal characteristics of Black players influence their draft evaluations. An Afrocentric methodology is used to place Blacks at the center of the analysis and position Black liberation as the research goal. This research finds that the NFL functions as a White-supremacist institution that rewards Black men who have culturally destructive characteristics, and that the interview stage of the NFL drafting process contains stereotypes and motives that are consistent with the operations of colonization.

Abstract: The National Football League recently experienced a spate of bad publicity over domestic violence incidents involving its players, while awareness of intimate partner violence has reached new highs. The National Network to End Domestic Violence estimates an average of 3 women are killed by a current or former intimate partner every day. In response, NFL players said, “NO MORE” in a public service announcement during a Thursday Night Football game to speak out against domestic violence and sexual assault.
This study seeks to explain whether or not the NFL is enforcing disciplinary standards on players, looking at past domestic violence incidents to determine the policy’s effectiveness.

Abstract: On Friday, September 22, 2017, President Trump described any National Football League player who protested during the national anthem as a “son of a bitch” deserving to be fired. In response, during the following NFL games’ performance of the national anthem, entire teams linked arms, knelt, or stayed in the locker room. This paper will use these events to explore the nature of the NFL’s brand and its ability to appropriate notions of patriotism, race, and activism. As a part of the military-industrial-media-entertainment network, the NFL has branded itself as simultaneously being an apolitical space and being politically unified in favor of American militarism. The commitment to these values is strong enough to hijack activist pregame actions associated with raising awareness of racist policing and social injustice, and turn them into messages consistent with the league’s brand.
