About this Item

From dust jacket: 'The Gladiators' is a documentary on professional football as it is played in the 1970s. It focuses on the men who play football, a special breed that for six months of every year lives with daily pain and, once a week, stakes its pride and reputation in a 60-minute confrontation. The Chapters: "Its the Men Who Play the Game" - Tex Maule contrasts the old with the new in his opening statement. "The First Season" is football's most difficult. James Terzian's text and Ken Heyman's photographic essay depict the Dallas Cowboy's training camp. "A Long Way Back to the Bench" analyzes the vital positions - offensive linemen, defensive linemen, linebacker, secondary, wide receiver, tight end, running back and quarterback. The players themselves discuss their responsibilities, physical and psychological. "The Third Team" - Senior referee Norm Schacter discusses the burdensome responsibilities, the oddities and the humor that surround a NFL official. "Football at 1/500" combines the talents of the games best photographers to capture football's most evocative moments. "The Better Way" - An interpretative study of the effects of modern technology on professional football. "Thresholds" - The players open up as they debate the one subject heretofore kept to themselves - pain and injury, and how to deal with it. "The New Breed" is about those men who have invested their concern and insight in the world outside football. In all, eight writers, a dozen photographers and over a hundred players have contributed to make 'The Gladiators' the most exciting and penetrating football book ever published.' Many color photographs. First Edition ?Inventory #27-001859-3697. Bookseller Inventory # 001859
