Overview

A look into the growing threats to the popularity of the NFL and what the league can do to avoid collapse The National Football League, despite its massive success and unprecedented earning power, is at its most pivotal moment since the AFL–NFL merger four decades ago. With public awareness of the issues plaguing the NFL—from domestic violence, drug use, and health of the players to oversaturation—there is a possibility that football as we know it could vanish in the very near future. In Two Minute Warning, author Mike Freeman, who has covered the league for more than a decade, looks at all the factors that could cause the league, as we know it, to collapse in on itself. Freeman has interviewed top NFL athletes, coaches, and executives as well as economists and scientists to paint this complete portrait of the league today—and lay out the steps it can take to move into the future.

It’s been a rough year for the NFL. From public awareness of multiple domestic violence cases, to the health and longevity of current and former players, to drug use within the league, the NFL is at its most pivotal moment.  Is it possible that the league could collapse in on itself despite its success and unprecedented earning power, and if so, what can they do to stay afloat?

 

Bleacher Report football columnist Mike Freeman has answered these questions and more in Two Minute Warning: How Concussions, Crime, and Controversy Could Kill the NFL (And What the League Can Do to Survive) (Triumph Books, October 2015). Sure, the NFL has seen its fair share of scandals and publicity nightmares since its inception, but now the public has become more aware of the issues surrounding the league. Highlights of the book include:

 

  • A look at the worst year in NFL history and how the week of September 8, 2014 was the catalyst
  • Mike Freeman’s discussion with Roger Goodell in December 2014
  • Interviews with top NFL players, coaches, executives, economists and scientists
  • Mike Freeman looks ahead to 2039 and imagines what the world would be like without football
