The glory days of the Oakland A's and Raiders
30 December 2005 | by sportsmedia25See all my reviews

When HBO always touts itself by saying, "It's not TV, it's HBO" they deserve an award when it comes to their sports documentaries. Narrated by the golden tones of Liev Schrieber, this hour long tribute to Oakland's football and baseball teams of the 1970's is not to be missed. From a sports journalist who currently covers both teams on a daily basis, the current squads are nowhere near the mystique that the A's had nor the swagger the Raiders did. Back in the day, the Raiders were tough, mean, and GOOD. Now they're just mean... As far as the A's, they've returned to their winning ways since 1999 but the green and gold's glory days will always be the 1970's when they won three World Series. Although the feat has since been accomplished by the New York Yankees, the A's did it primarily through their farm system and didn't have to employ a rent-a-player strategy like the Yankees.
