Identify the thesis statement in the following paragraph, excerpted from an editorial on the NFL and player safety: "The National Football League is the most popular professional sports league in America, with tens of millions of viewers each Sunday during the regular season and the playoffs. Recently the NFL has come under a significant degree of criticism for what some perceive as being its habit of turning a blind eye towards the health of current and former players. In the coming years, it will be critically important for the NFL commissioner and owners to address the issue of player health and safety head on to avoid heavy regulations and censure from the United States government."
The thesis statement in this paragraph is the last sentence: "In the coming years, it will be critically important for the NFL commissioner and owners to address the issue of player health and safety head on to avoid heavy regulations and censure from the United States government." The first sentence in this paragraph describes facts about the NFL, and does not contain any opinion statement that could be considered to be a thesis statement. The second sentence in this paragraph describes more subjective facts about the NFL, but still does not reflect any particular opinion or thesis on the part of the author. The last sentence, however, presents the author's viewpoint (or thesis) with regards to the NFL's response to player safety, and sets the stage for further discussion and analysis.
