Troubled Teens: THE FIX – Circus Maximus: The NFL & The End of Civilization

Dr. Mayer analyzes the recent scandals in the National Football League and comments on how this effects our teens and children who participate in sport. Mayer also adds his insight into the Richie Incognito tragedy and points out the similarities between Incognito’s actions and those of s sexual predator. Was Incognito sexually attracted to the player he abused? Mayer also points out how steroid abuse distorts one’s sexuality and Mayer hypothesizes that this drug use may be at the core of Incognito’s behavior. Dr. Mayer quotes both a New York Times article on this tragedy and an article from the Chicago Sun Times.
