The United States Of Football is a heartbreaking story assembled over three years by the Emmy and Peabody-winning filmmaker who rocked the sports world and made public the infamous Bountygate tapes. But that was only a piece of a bigger scandal. Sean Pamphilon investigates the dirty secret too-long-kept from players – an increasing incidence of brain damage, dementia, and slow death from repetitive head trauma. This documentary digs into the lives of fallen heroes, as once-vigorous men with everything to live for lose their minds, their functions and their lives. This is an in-depth examination of the football coaching ranks from pee wee through to the pros that asks, “Who is coaching your kids?”
