Football wise, the 1960s was a time when the game was blessed with true characters and outstanding players. It was the era of Best, Law and Charlton, the mercurial Jimmy Greaves and Sir Alf Ramsey’s victorious England. As Match of the Day moved into the 1970’s, the show’s viewing figures reflected the high profile of the nation’s favourite sport. A record audience of over 20 million people watched the 1970 FA Cup final between Chelsea and Leeds, and by 1972-73 figures for Match of the Day were averaging 12 million, making it an essential part of the weekend’s TV viewing. With Jimmy Hill at the helm from 1973, the players of the 1970s such as Keegan, Hudson, Currie, Bowles and of course Best, were full of flair and a new type of professionalism. Dominated by Liverpool, whose phenomenal roll-call of honours was truly awe-inspiring, the 1980s was the decade of Bryan Robson, Dalglish, Hoddle, Lineker and Rush. Football remained compulsive viewing as millions watched Kendall’s Everton take their first League title for fifteen years and Wimbledon memorably beat Liverpool in the 1988 FA Cup Final. Match of the Day: 60s, 70s, 80s on DVD is a must-own memento of the greatest games and the most thrilling footballing legends - with skills, personalities and hair-cuts to remember forever.
Barcelona and Real Madrid: two of the most powerful and popular clubs in world football, and one of the world's most bitter sporting rivalries. Going far beyond the boundaries of just sport alone, this is a rivalry at the heart of Spanish life, taking in politics and culture and splitting a country in two. El Clasico gets to the heart of that rivalry, investigating the intrigue, the larger-than-life characters, the key flashpoints and their consequences. From civil war bloodshed to 40 years of fascism and links with General Franco, the clubs' shared history is the stuff of a Robert Harris novel and includes: murdered presidents from both clubs, player kidnappings, acts of hooliganism - and that's before you start thinking of the volatile football matches themselves. The book contains numerous interviews with key figures such as Lus Figo and Hristo Stoichkov (two of the main hate figures from both clubs), Joan Laporta (Barcelona's most successful president and, having entered politics, Catalonian separatism's poster boy) and various ex-players, ex-managers, agents, referees, hooligans, editors, historians, sociologists, filmmakers, novelists, photographers, TV presenters and celebrity fans. The two clubs are packed with international superstar players - including the world's two best players in Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo - and 10 of the starting 11 players from Spain's 2010 World Cup final victory play with either Barcelona or Real Madrid. This is a story with resonance around the sporting world, with many instantly recognisable figuresto an international audience such as Jose Mourinho. But it is also a tale of a country divided by a bitter rivalry. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Caroline Shaffer. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/009547/bk_adbl_009547_sample.mp3.

A veteran hockey writer takes on hockey culture and the NHL, addressing the game's most controversial issue. Whether it's on-ice fist fights or head shots into the glass, hockey has become a nightly news spectacle with players pummeling and bashing each other across the ice like drunken gladiators. And while the NHL may actually condone on-ice violence as a ticket draw, diehard hockey fan and expert Adam Proteau argues against hockey's transformation into a thuggish blood sport. In Fighting the Good Fight, Proteau sheds light on the many perspectives of those in and around the game, with interviews of current and former NHL stars, coaches, general managers, and league executives, as well as medical experts. One of the most well-known media figures on the hockey scene today, famous for his funny, feisty observations as a writer for the Toronto Star and The Hockey News and commentator on CBC radio and TV, Adam Proteau is also one of the few mainstream media voices who is vehemently anti-fighting in hockey. Not only is his book a plea to the game's gatekeepers to finally clamp down on the runaway violence that permeates the sport even at its highest level, he offers realistic suggestions on ways to finally clean the game up.Includes interviews with medical experts on head injuries and concussions, as well as with other members of the mediaThe author not only wages an attack on the value of fighting in hockey, but also on the establishment hockey culture Covering the most polarizing issue in hockey today, Fighting the Good Fight gives hockey fans and sports lovers everywhere a reason to stamp their feet and whistle at a rare display of eloquence and common sense. 1.

Essay from the year 2015 in the subject Sport - Sport Sociology, grade: A 98.0, Winthrop University, course: CRTW 201-H, language: English, abstract: The National Football League is one of the most famous organizations in the country. It is home to some of the most brilliant athletic legacies to call their own. College football stars dream of hearing their name announced on Monday night in front of thousands of screaming fans. Regular people, sports fans or not, know of, or have heard of, some of the football superstars that have reached stardom since playing in the NFL.The NFL has turned football into a more glamorous sport. The players and coaches have multi-million dollar contracts and live enchanting lifestyles, being the envy of every wide-eyed, football-loving fan. The players serve as spokes-men and role models for young students who turn out to be their biggest fans, aspiring to be just like them one day. Yet, these football greats are still normal people. They are just like us, they have families, drive to work, and even make mistakes.The difference between the NFL player's mistake and a mistake that an average person makes is that their mistake is broadcasted all over every great TV network, whereas our mistake is seen maybe by a handful of people. There have been numerous cases that have gone public with large mistakes made by NFL players. The fans of the players associated with the mistake were able to devise their own opinion, however, when the NFL stands behind one player accused for murder, the fans are more apt to stand behind him as well, forgetting all about their morals and justice.

Every year a new champion is crowned in the world of professional basketball. But few seasons feature a champion that has countless ups and downs, key coaching and player changes, dominating defensive play, and one player who is criticized heavily early in the season that later becomes a hero, making one of the greatest plays in team history. Detroit experienced all these things during the 2003-2004 season and along with it, won the team's third ever championship. David Lawless was there, like he always is every year, following this team at the arena; on TV; even occasionally on the road. It's quite clear that he has The Fever. In The Fever, Lawless chronicles what it's like to be a fan of a team that plays such an exciting style and ends up winning the game's ultimate prize. True fans of the team and true fans of the sport itself, will relate to his use of first names, always, when describing the players and the exclamations of emotion that come out during the middle of a big playoff game. Each game is discussed in the same language and expressions that fans use. They're all here: each and every game analyzed like a coach would, but described with the passion of a true fan.
