According to Mitch Abrams, author of Anger Management in Sport, lack of anger management can sometimes hurt sport performance. This was recently demonstrated when NFL player, Ndamukong Suh, was ejected after stomping on an opposing player.
"Suh needs anger management as much as many athletes need anger management because it is a mental skill in sports that doesn’t get much attention. When there is a transgression on the field or off it, athletes get sent to anger management as if it is punishment. If you rev your guys up and they go over the line, it isn’t as simple as the athlete has an anger problem," Dr. Abrams said.
