Sex-Trafficking Scandals

One major controversy surrounding the Super Bowl is the longheld idea that it marks one of the biggest sex-trafficking events in the US. For years stories have come out about prostitution cases, and although the NFL has denied and brushed off scandals, law enforcement officials report a spike in trafficking each year ahead of the big game. A 2011 report on the issue concludes that there's more rumor than truth to the controversy, but with so much coverage on the topic, sex trafficking remains linked to the Super Bowl.
