  • DF1Young America's Foundation alumnus, Dan Flynn, has recently released a new book, The War on Football: Saving America's Game, where Dan defends America's most popular sport.

    "From concussion doctors pushing "science" that benefits their hidden business interests to lawyers clamoring for billion-dollar settlements in scam litigation, America's game has become so big that everybody wants a cut. And those chasing the dollars show themselves more than willing to trash a great sport in hot pursuit of a buck.

    Everything they say about football is wrong. Football players don't commit suicide at elevated levels, die younger than their peers, or suffer disproportionately from heart disease. In fact, professional players live longer, healthier lives than American men in general.

    More than that, football is America's most popular sport. It brings us together. It is, and has been, a rite of passage for millions of American boys."

    Football1Daniel J. Flynn is also the author of Blue Collar Intellectuals: When the Enlightened and the Everyman Elevated America; A Conservative History of the American Left; Intellectual Morons: How Ideology Makes Smart People Fall for Stupid Ideas; and Why the Left Hates America.

    Flynn writes a column for and regularly contributes to His articles have appeared in The Boston Globe, The American Enterprise, The Washington Times, and National Review Online, among other publications.

    August 15, 2013, the Los Angeles Times published Flynn's OP-ED, " The Truth About Football." Much like in Flynn's new book, he describes how football has evolved over time and continues to be a fun safe sport.
