Can the NFL change its culture?


When college football star and National Football League prospect Michael Sam announced that he was gay, questions arose as to how he might be accepted in a professional football locker room. A new investigation into serious bullying and harassment within the Miami Dolphins organization raised issues about leadership, accountability and personal responsibility within the league. Is it time for a culture change in the NFL? We explore the possibilities with our guests ANDREW BRANDT, director of the Jeffrey S. Moorad Center for the Study of Sports Law at Villanova University and the NFL business analyst for ESPN, and MIKE SIELSKI, sports columnist for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
