More About Just Win, Baby by Murray Olderman
 
 
 
Overview
Revealing how an obscure young assistant coach, in less than a decade, progressed to become a head coach, general manager, league commissioner, and controlling partner of the Oakland Raiders franchise, this biography pays tribute to the late Al Davis. Contrary to Davis s notoriously quirky and reclusive reputation, this account is based on the inside scoop he personally gave the author, lending his full cooperation to relate the account of his life and career. With a treasure trove of previously untold anecdotes, personal reminiscences, and highlights of Davis s leadership of the Raiders as professional football became America s premier spectator sport, this chronicle details the major impact this maverick owner had not only on professional football but also on America s sports scene as a whole. The subject s influence on the merger of the American and National Football Leagues into the greater NFL is also reviewed as is his election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame."
