The System (Paperback)
Veteran journalists Madden & Rappaport deliver a thrilling account of pro football full of 1980s American nostalgia. It's every armchair quarterback's dream to call the plays of their favorite team -- fantasy football come to life But are the games as fair as they seem? Does the best team really win, or is there someone or something pulling the strings?
It's the 1980s and pro football has a stranglehold on the sports world. No league is more popular or powerful. But when two ordinary guys wind up running a failing team, they challenge the status quo with a new game plan. Is there any way they'll succeed? The odds are stacked against them, especially when they go up against The System.
