Welcome to pro football in the '70s, the decade that made the NFL the supreme national sport with the advent of Monday Night Football and some truly exciting games. Author Kevin Cook takes us inside the era of immense steroid and amphetamine use, permissive drug and alcohol abuse, poor pay, and devastating brutality on and off the field. It was all part of the game. Told with great panache, a large dose of testosterone, an ear for pitch-black comedy and packed with shocking anecdotes, The Last Headbangers will leave you dizzy but thankfully concussion-free.
