Great Documentary On Football

This is one of the finest documentaries on the sport of football. It shows how the American Football League got its start and how the competition with the older and more established National Football League and eventually force the merger which made the N.F.L. what it is today. You also look at the events surrounding the first four Super Bowl games and how it evolved into one of the greatest annual sporting events in history. Another thing that made this documentary great was the fact that it showed how the A.F.L. was took the lead in drafting players from the historical black universities such as Grambling and Southern. This is definitely one great documentary.
