Recommended for: Ian

This book made me respect the game both more and less. More, because I admire a code which says you stick up for the men on your team, defending them, even when they're wrong. And less, because I have very strong feelings about cheating, and holding plays back and doctoring calls etc. to get certain outcomes, that don't have the heart of good sportsmanship at their base.

And it made me yearn for a time when players and teams were a unit....and money was less the object, than was making a living doing something you loved.
