This documentary is excellent! It tells the story of the Oakland Athletics & Oakland Raiders of the 1970s. There are many good interviews with former players, coaches, sports writers, and celebrities.
The 1970s was a great time in Oakland. The A's won three straight World Championships in 1972, 1973, and 1974. The team might have even won more titles during the latter part of the decade but unfortunately their owner Charles O. Finley had cash register for a heart!:-(
The segment on the Raiders is equally compelling to see. The Raiders lost 3 straight AFC title games before finally beating the Steelers in 1976. They went on to easily beat the Vikings in the Super Bowl. Both of these sports teams very much epitomized the tough and independent spirit of the city of Oakland in the 1970s!
All in all this is a very good sports documentary to see!
