Outstanding sports documentary
14 October 2013 | by (los ángeles) – See all my reviews

Broadway Joe changed the game...he did it his way, and his way was exciting...one interesting part of this doc is how Shea stadium was filled up just to see this phenom, and the women started coming to games.... more importantly, the great footage from the NFL/AFL games shows the pounding he took...all quarterbacks took a pounding but Joe Willie had a target on his back...and certain defensive players admit they wanted to be the one that took him out...kind of muddles up a bit in regards to his involvement with his bar, batchelors 3, but pretty much gives adequate coverage to his acting career, including Hollywood and Broadway, not to mention all the commercials....Joe Willie was one of the first to do endorsements....one of the first to have an agent negotiate a superstar salary....and one of the first to wear long hair...and one of the first to wear white cleats...doesn't sound like such a big deal today, but he paved the way for a lot of athletes...most importantly he delivered on Super Bowl 3, and the doc truly shows how Namath figured the colts out...he guaranteed it....had the colts won, the AFL teams may have folded, as even tho they had merged with the NFL, a lot of sportswriters referred to them as second rate football teams and resented the upstart league..Joe took the pounding for the entire AFL in that respect...
