Customer Review

on 4 September 2011
This is a shocking story of the power and total control one man dictated with such extremeties in order to succeed. The disturbing facts of day to day training practises pushing young men to the limit with such disregard to health. The bullying and violence on the training ground subjected to these boys makes it sickening to comprehend. Addition to the often disturbing storyline is the 'parties' some of the players were enticed in to going to, for cash bribes, good food and booze, and to meet Rock Hudson, the fact all this going down in and around 1962 and in Kentucky?

Charlie Bradshaw, the coach, wanted to create a 'super team' for his dream of 'Total Football'. This book shows the sickening conditions these young players had to endure. You dont have to be an American football fan to find this compulsive reading. The author, Shannon Ragland, has written this with a sympathetic ear to those that were on the receiving end of such torture. I congratulate him on writing this and hope nothing like this has hit the training ground since or ever will. Surprised Hollywood has not made a film of it?
