Unruly Fans a Problem?

Americans take their sports seriously, and their passion - or obsessiveness - can spill over the line. Sometimes way over the line.  At the Bengals-Steelers playoff game, six fans were arrested for assaults, including three involving young men attacking women.

It extends all the way down to high school and youth leagues, where administrators have had to take extreme measures in some cases to protect players and the public.

Pro takes preps to Concussion movie

Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown took football players from a Pennsylvania high school last week to see the movie ‘Concussion,’ an act he said was to educate young athletes about the perils of the sport.

USA Today reported that Brown took the entire Clairton High School football team to watch the film. ‘Concussion,’ starring Will Smith, is about Dr. Bennet Omalu, who discovered the degenerative brain disease CTE and its occurrence in athletes exposed to repeated head trauma.
