Unnecessary Roughness 2017

Our “Unnecessary Roughness” event at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC on May 10th, 2017 featured New York Times Bestselling Author Malcolm Gladwell alongside Pro Football Hall of Famer Warren Sapp. Singer Amy Vachal set the stage before The Motley Fool Co-Founder and CEO, Tom Gardner hosted our panel discussion on the future of youth tackle football. Our expert guests Dr. Robert Cantu, Dr. Ann McKee, and Dr. Chris Nowinski focused on the current state of research into concussions and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) and how this research should inform decisions regarding youth tackle football. Former University of Michigan football player Julian Swearengin also joined our guests to share his perspective as the founder of Manhattan’s only public youth tackle football program.
