An insider's view of the drama, intrigue, and machinations that gave birth to the modern-day NFL.
Some historical topics seem to be of perennial interest. The American Football League (AFL) had a major impact on the expansion of professional football in the 1960s. Although this expansion has been much covered, Felser offers a fresh perspective. Beat man for the Buffalo Bills from the start in 1960, he witnessed the struggles and triumphs of the insurgent league. While his book is ostensibly about the AFL-NFL merger, he supplies a great deal of informed background on the AFL in a delightful account that underscores how the competition between the two leagues created a better game by the end of the Sixties. For all libraries.
