I liked the Friedman/Greenberg book - it was well done.

Sorry to hear about the Pollard bio. That's crazy! I looked up my Amazon order and I paid $17.44 in 2018. Keep an eye on Abe Books and eBay too. I sent a member my Dutch Clark bio recently because that one can be hard to find too and I'd already read it. But the Pollard one I actually use as a reference.


What I like about the Friedman book is it really goes over all the teams and the great players that they had. It gives you a pretty good picture of
the early years of the NFL. It's not just all about Benny. After reading this I'm surprised it took so long for him to get in the HOF.

It doesn’t get much better than David Marraniss’s bio of Vince Lombardi, “When Pride Still Mattered”.
