About this title


The owner of the San Diego Chargers takes readers inside pro football, into the locker rooms, owner's meetings and front offices to reveal all the joys, crises, frustrations, fun, and feuds of the business of sports

From Library Journal:

At last, a book about pro football from the owner's point of view. This one was worth the wait. A lifelong football fan, Klein bought the San Diego Chargers in 1966 "to have fun" but the most fun he had was when he sold the team 18 years later. Starting as a used-car salesman during the Depression, he made his money in the corporate world and planned to run the Chargers like any other business. That was his first mistake. Nothing escapes his rapier wit: head coaches, agents, lawsuits, players, the college draft, and the drug problem. But it is his fellow owners, especially archenemy Al Davis, who are thoroughly lambasted in this compulsively readable, nonstop account that will have readers chuckling aloud. This belongs in every sports collection. Jo DeLapo, Queens Borough P.L., New York
