The Legend of Snake, Foo, Dr. Death, and John Madden's Oakland Raiders

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A book that explores the enduring legends of Snake, Foo, Dr. Death, and John Madden’s Oakland Raiders, Badasses is the definitive biography of arguably the last team to play old-fashioned tough-guy football. Peter Richmond, co-author of the New York Times bestseller The Glory Game, offers a fascinating look at the 1970s Oakland Raiders, led by colorful greats from another era: Ken Stabler, Willie Brown, Gene Upshaw, Jim Otto, Art Shell, head coach John Madden, and owner Al Davis. In the bestselling vein of Boys Will Be Boys, Badasses chronicles the bar-room exploits, practice-field pranks, and Super Bowl glories of the team’s many misfits, cast-offs, psychos, and geniuses of the game.

From a time when the Silver and Black Ruled Football

Raider Fan Guy lives and dies by a creed. Followers of the lessor 31 teams don't get it. Their teams play football, may even win a Super Bowl here and there. Yet Dallas, the Steelers, New England and the team from Across the Bay are respected and never feared. This is the chronicling of The Team at the epicenter of the greatest moments in the history of the sport.

Either The Raiders won, or teams, with the help of the officials, managed to out score Oakland. Badasses follows The Best of The Best Raider Teams of All Time. The Teams that laid the foundation of jealousy and hatred that oozes throughout the NFL.

This is a most own book for people who remember the voice of Bill King or Curt Gowdy describe the action, that forged the heroes and legends, that defined an era of dominance.
