The League: How Five Rivals Created the NFL and Launched a Sports Empire I saw this book reviewed in the Wall Street Journal just before Christmas, and bought it for my youngest son, who s a football fan but not fanatic He and I both read it it s really about the business and formation of the league, and not so much about the sport or teams Very well written and informative, and thought provoking, as well Amazing how 5 men could create such a juggernaut The Epic Tale Of The Five Owners Who Shepherded The NFL Through Its Tumultuous Early Decades And Built The Most Popular Sport In AmericaThe National Football League Is A Towering, Distinctly American Colossus Spewing Out Billion In Annual Revenue But It Was Not Always A Success In The League, John Eisenberg Focuses On The Pioneering Sportsmen Who Kept The League Alive In The S, S, And S,when Its Challenges Were Many And Its Survival Was Not Guaranteed At The Time, College Football, Baseball, Boxing, And Horseracing Dominated America S Sports Scene Art Rooney, George Halas, Tim Mara, George Preston Marshall, And Bert Bell Believed In Pro Football When Few Others Did And Ultimately Succeeded Only Because At Critical Junctures Each Sacrificed The Short Term Success Of His Team For The Longer Term Good Of The LeagueAt Once A History Of A Sport And A Remarkable Story Of Business Ingenuity, The League Is An Essential Read For Any Fan Of Our True National Pastime John Eisenberg does a great job of telling the early history of the NFL through the story of five of the founding members It was an enjoyable read Gives you great insight into how the NFL has evolved into a multi billion dollar business But as Eisenberg shows us the 5 Rivals did not have an easy time getting the NFL kicked off Mr Eisenberg, job well done. This is the third book by Eisenberg that I ve read regarding NFL history and this is easily the best one The way he weaved the story of the founding and survival of the NFL through the perspective of these five men was very entertaining I had been looking forward to this book for months and not only did it meet my expectations, it exceeded them I highly recommend this book if you re a fan of sports history. I really enjoyed this story by Eisenberg knowing he is a great writer from local sports gigs It really does tell with amazing insight the story of the fledgling league that barely survived and how the owners helped and supported each other, where they came from, their sordid pasts etc Its full of so much insight that I never had a clue about in the early days of the NFL I recommend it to any avid NFL fan
