El Paso, Texas — Psychologist at the University of Athens in Greece has developed a new theory to explain why the NFL’s most popular team has endured such a long and tumultuous relationship with the media and fans.
The new theory proposes that the NFL is not really a sport, but a cult of personality that requires constant exposure and constant reinforcement, which is why it has become so polarizing and polarizing players have become celebrities.
In his new book, The Football Players Brain, psychologist and sports psychologist Atallah El-Bakri argues that players are in constant fear of being branded as a “puppet” by their teammates, coaches and fans, and the media as well.
El-Bachri, a research fellow at the Department of Psychology at the university, says that football players are so consumed with the idea of being a puppet, they don’t have time to think about their own personal lives and relationships.
El-Barakri says players also don’t think of their own health and well-being as important to their team and fans because they are “so focused on being on the field.”
“This is the football team that is supposed to be their role model, they’re supposed to have this role model role, they have this responsibility,” he said.
“It’s a huge disconnect from their real lives, their real relationships, and it’s a lot of work for them.”
El-Baakri’s theory proposes the NFL has created a cult around itself.
He says players are often the only people who can talk to each other and their coaches, and they are so immersed in the game that they forget about their personal lives.
The concept of a cult, El-Baekri says, was invented by the American psychologist Joseph Campbell in his 1960s book The Hero With a Thousand Faces, in which he explained that a person’s self-image is the only real quality a person possesses, and if they are not in tune with themselves they can’t make it in life.
El Baakri is a researcher at the department of psychology at the College of Athens and the co-founder of the football brain project, which seeks to understand how players and coaches bond.
The team, which El-Baracsi and other psychologists will present to the NFL owners meeting this week, is led by former NFL star Ray Lewis and former Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith.
The researchers are also studying the relationship between players and the NFL itself.
In their new book The Football Player Brain, El Baakris, along with fellow psychologist Dr. Efraim Karpat, argue that the “cult of personality” is a myth and that the players are actually “a group of highly individualized, self-determined, emotionally resilient individuals.”
He said the idea that the team is just a collection of disconnected individuals with no real relationship with one another is “ridiculous.”
“You don’t need a football team to be a cult.
You don’t even need a cult to be like this,” he explained.
“You just need a group of individuals who are all the same, who all have their own emotional, social and psychological needs.”
“What makes a football fan different than a player is the feeling of connectedness, the feeling that the entire world has a role in his life, that he’s part of something bigger than himself, and that his role in this world is to be in service to the greater good of the team.”
El Baekris and the other researchers will also present their work at the NFL Owners meetings in Phoenix, Arizona, on Wednesday.
A number of NFL players are set to attend the meetings, including Hall of Fame wide receiver Reggie Wayne, former Raiders quarterback John Elway and Hall of Famer Reggie Wayne Jr.
The study is part of El-baakris research project on how the brain processes emotion, the human tendency to judge others based on perceived attributes and the human brain’s need for reward.
“What is it about the football player that gives him the ability to feel so connected to the football field?,” El Baikris said.
“That is a lot like the human body.
You have a very specific brain, and what we’ve found is that the whole human body is wired to connect to a particular source of information.
The football player, his brain is wired in such a way that he can connect to that information and make it feel like he’s in a relationship with it.””
He can be emotionally invested in the sport.
It’s not about the numbers.
It doesn’t have to be about money.
It just has to be emotional,” he added.
El baakris is currently studying the human emotional system and how it processes emotion and how players respond to it.
He is also a researcher with the Human Emotionality Lab at Harvard Medical School, which has been conducting research on the emotional system of human beings since the 1950s.
