The National Football League has become a platform for conflict, reports New York Times journalist Mark Leibovich (writing before COVID-19 and its impact on professional sports). The biggest continuing issue is the debate about a connection between concussions and brain disease. Controversy also arose as some players protested incidents of police racism by kneeling – instead of standing – during the pregame national anthem. Despite waves of negative publicity, wealthy NFL teams owners continue to prosper under the leadership of Commissioner Roger Goodell. Since the owners hired him in 2006, most teams have doubled in value.
