"Richmond's book is a treasure trove of uproarious anecdotes skillfully woven into a seasonal chronicle spiced with sharp player profiles...This rollicking read reminds us that football is a game that's meant to be played hard--and to be fun."--Library Journal "I always thought the Raiders were bad, but I never realized how bad -- and how good - until I read Peter Richmond's smart, funny, rowdy tale."--Robert Lipsyte, former NEW YORK TIMES columnist and author of CENTER FIELD "Once upon a time, there lived a band of larger-than-life misfits who lorded over the NFL. Dirtbags! Castoffs! Has-beens! Deviants! You name 'em, John Madden's Raiders had 'em. And, thanks to Richmond's tireless reporting and vibrant prose, so does Badasses."--Jeff Pearlman, New York Times bestselling author of Boys Will Be Boys: The Glory Days and Party Nights of the Dallas Cowboys Dynasty No NFL team ever strutted any better on the dark side than the Oakland Raiders of the 1970s. In Badasses, Peter Richmond chronicles the treacheries, debauchery, and yes, the winning, with appropriate literary gusto. Lock the doors, close the windows, send the kids tobed before reading. --Leigh Montville, author of Ted Williams: The Biography of an American Hero" I always thought the Raiders were bad, but I never realized how bad -- and how good - until I read Peter Richmond s smart, funny, rowdy tale. --Robert Lipsyte, former NEW YORK TIMES columnist and author of CENTER FIELD" Once upon a time, there lived a band of larger-than-life misfits who lorded over the NFL.
