Going Long: The Wild 10-year Saga of the Renegade American Football League in the Words of Those who Lived it
The first oral history of the AFL--straight from the men who made it happen Flavored with wild (and often ribald) anecdotes, inside stories, interviews, and never-before-told material, Going Long brings the incredible story of the maverick American Football League to life through the words of the players, coaches, owners, and others who lived it. Hearkening back to a simpler time for sports, this unique oral history reveals the origins of the modern game we know today, and how it all began with a fight-to-the-death for professional football supremacy. This story of the AFL is filled with legendary names such as Bob Griese, Joe Namath, Lamar Hunt, Jack Kemp, Bart Starr and more. From the contentious formation of the league, to paychecks bouncing as often as footballs, to improbable Super Bowl victories, Going Long presents the colorful and sometimes bizarre tale of eight teams and a league that refused to die.
