Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Flores, former coach of both the Oakland Raiders and the Seattle Seahawks and currently working as a media commentator for the Raiders, never seems to have a bad word to say about anyone. This book recounts stories of the players and teams that he encountered during his career with the Raiders, as both a player and a coach. While Flores's recollections are a reminder of the many names that some fans may have forgotten, his always positive spin begs the question, Didn't any negative things happen? Were all the players dedicated to the team and one another? The answer is, of course, no. For example, Warren Wells, a great Raider wide receiver of the late 1960s and early 1970s, is never even mentioned (could it be his prison record?), while a detailed discussion of Billy Cannon just happens to omit the time he was incarcerated for forgery. There is a market for "cheerleading" books such as this, but they shouldn't be seen as a complete history. Recommended only for dedicated Raiders fans and perhaps public and school libraries in the Bay Area.-William O. Scheeren, Hempfield Area H.S., Greensburg, PA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
