Sean Pamphilon's documentary The United States of Football examines the brutality of America's most popular sport. The movie spotlights the prevalence and severity of brain injuries suffered by those who have played football at various levels. The infamous "bountygate" fines and suspensions levied against the New Orleans Saints were triggered in part by information that came to light from the research done for this film.
