This article addresses the problem of violence in sports and assesses the inability of the traditional legal mechanisms of tort and criminal law to control this violence. The authors also examine the major schemes to stem sports violence that have been considered by Congress. Finally, the authors propose the control of violent behavior through legislatively mandated rule reforms enforced by a Federal Professional Sports Violence Commission.
