In Vegas, they called him the Jammer. The kind of guy who got things done. But when Jack Molloy inherited half of the NFL's New York Hawks, he had to take a crash course in steroids, gambling, crooked quarterbacks, idiot sportswriters, control-freak coaches, and philandering announcers. He had to huddle up with characters like Tire Iron Timmons, an ordained minister of WHUP, and Mo Jiggy, rap star turned agent. And, as an instant celebrity, he had to steel himself for a season in tabloid hell...

Welcome to the wonderful world of professional football.
