Time: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
United States
Location: uptown campus

The city of New Orleans has been a major player in the NFL this year. Between the bounty scandal and being host city to the Super Bowl XLVII, New Orleans has held the attention of national audiences. To join the conversation and launch Super Bowl week, Hillel at Tulane University is hosting the second installment of The Big Issue debate series. The Big Issue: The Future of Football will tackle questions regarding injuries within the league, the New Orleans bounty scandal, and other topics surrounding the current NFL landscape. An array of the game’s most knowledgeable sources will present in this exciting forum. According to Rabbi Yonah Schiller, Executive Director of Tulane Hillel, “We are excited The Big Issue is continuing with another compelling issue for the city of New Orleans. With a panel of nationaI experts, we expect this will be a lively, informative and fun discussion. Our goal with The Big Issue series, and this event in particular, is to give voice to and express various perspectives. I’m looking forward to it.” Moderator Gabe Feldman says, “I’m thrilled that the New Orleans and Tulane communities will get this unique opportunity to participate in a dialog with some of the leading voices in the NFL.” The goal of this forum is not only to educate viewers about current affairs, but it is also to blur the lines that often separate presenter from audience and to continue to promote the constructive analysis of an ever-changing national landscape.
