    Best football book I have read As with his previous book about the cowboys he manages to convey the emotions of the people involved.Trump comes across as a destructive egotist so was obviously preparing himself for the presidency I used to own the 1 league which was good but this is much betterI just wish the world had john Bassett and not Trump as president.

    One of the best book I ve read.From the way it s written from a fans point of view to all the effort it took to obtain the content in the book has to be admired.The way it allows the reader to immerse themselves into the book, hours in vanish in seconds.The level of appreciation Jeff Pearlman had in the subject matter showed in how it was written.I d recommend this book to every fan of American football and everyone who likes to read It s a book I could read again and again, still getting the same level of enjoyment.

    We all know Trump likes to hold a grudge and is very vindictive His ongoing war on the NFL was clearly motivated by the demise of the USFL and the damages of 1 awarded to Trump in his antitrust suit against the NFL A very interesting story.
