And not just from concussions, but from sub-concussions that happen frequently in practice and play. Steve Almond is a man standing up to the NFL and to us. Author of Against Football: One Fan’s Reluctant Manifesto, Steve is a 40-year fan who is telling the story and turning off football because of the culture of violence, racism, greed and misogyny that football feeds and lives off. Steve gives us the facts. But we have the power to act. Tackle Football. Turn It Off! And pass the word.
