Dean Alberto Godenzi from the Boston College School of Social Work proposed a suggestion for how the National Football League (NFL) can take an "unequivocal stance on domestic violence" in an op-ed for the Boston Globe.
Godenzi suggests that the league should ask team captains to read a statement against domestic violence and sexual abuse prior to the kickoff of games. It's an idea Godenzi borrows from the playbook of soccer's major governing body, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), who launched an anti-racism campaign in response to repeated acts of intolerance from players, fans, and management.
