“What do Ray Rice, the Redskins, Don Sterling, Jonathan Martin, Michael Sam, and the Needham Girls Soccer Team Have in Common? Changing Attitudes in Sports Culture”
Professor Alfred Yen and Garin Veris ’98 (former New England Patriot and NFL Player) will discuss how each of these tells a story about the extent to which certain values from outside world exist (or don’t exist) within the microcosm of sports. Questions to be asked: Can the world of sports still create its own agenda? Should there be change and, if so, how should those changes be adopted legally, socially, and commercially?
