Blurb: 
Tim Green is proof that all football players aren"t meat-headed Neanderthals. Green, an ex-player who has made his mark as a commentator on National Public Radio and the Fox Network, and as a best-selling novelist, shows both his love of the game and his insights into its problems in this collection of some 70 essays on his experience in the National Football League. From the physical brutality of the sport -- he suffered 12 concussions as a player -- to the use of performance enhancing drugs, to the sport"s connections with the mob, Green writes clearly and evenly about the dilemmas and deals that most professional football fans know nothing about -- the dark side to America"s favorite pastime.
