FORA.tv, the leading online destination for video programs from the world’s best conferences and events, will broadcast the latest Intelligence Squared U.S. (IQ2US) debate, "Should College Football Be Banned?” Corruption and a growing concern for head injury have put college football in the spotlight. Are football programs’ millions in profits exploitation? Or are they still a celebration of amateur sport? Does football’s inherent danger and violence have any place in institutions of higher learning? Or does it provide young men with educational opportunities they would not otherwise have?
The debate will be streamed live next Tuesday, May 8th at 6:45 pm EST at http://fora.tv/live/intelligencesquared_us/college_football. Following the live event, FORA.tv will offer the debate as a free on-demand program, and the full video and highlights will be available to share and embed.
In support of the motion are Malcolm Gladwell, The New Yorker staff writer and author, The Tipping Point, and Buzz Bissinger, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author, Friday Night Lights. Arguing against the motion are Tim Green, former NFL defensive end and football broadcaster, and Jason Whitlock, FOXSports.com national columnist.
The moderator will be John Donvan, correspondent for ABC News. In a career that spans more than two decades for ABC News, Donvan previously served as the Chief White House Correspondent, along with postings in Moscow, London, Jerusalem and Amman.
