Audible Editor Reviews

Fans will agree that few can compete with Tom Flores for inside knowledge about the Oakland Raiders. First a quarterback for the team, then coach, and now a broadcaster, Flores has a wealth of stories about the team, which has tended to attract colorful eccentrics that would have trouble fitting in elsewhere. Gary Littman's upbeat performance embodies the iconoclasm and quirky charm of these players. Listeners will enjoy stories about characters like Ted Hendricks - whose pranks included riding a horse onto the field while holding a lance - delivered with a dose of good humor and "Can you believe that?" attitude by Littman.

Publisher's Summary

It’s almost impossible to talk about Oakland football without bringing up the name of the consummate Raider, Tom Flores. Legendary for both his skills on the field and his coaching guidance from the sideline, Flores has been an integral part of the Raiders organization since its inception in 1960. Now Flores shares the greatest stories and anecdotes from his time with the team in Tales from the Oakland Raiders Sideline. Flores relives the heart-stopping thrills and adrenaline-surging passion of Super Bowl XV and Super Bowl XVIII, and provides behind-the-scenes humor from greats such as former coach and owner Al Davis and coach Eddie Erdelatz. Flores also shares tales of other Raiders greats such as Billy Cannon, Jim Otto, John Matuszak, Bo Jackson, and more. Without a doubt this is a must-have for any Raiders fan.

    "Disappointing"

    I've been a die-hard raider fan since the 1970's. So it was with a great deal of excitement and anticipation that I got and listened to this audiobook. After doing so though, I have to say that I'm disappointed. Firstly, I was really hoping for a bunch of first-hand anecdotes about the players, teams, and organization. Unfortunately, so much of the stuff in there is superficial at best. When Flores talks about the players, he often says little more than that they were great, or fast, or strong, or whatever, and little else. Second, quite a bit of the beginning of the book is "wasted" talking about the Kansas City Chiefs of all things. Apparently Flores coached there or played there or whatever, and I simply don't care about that. Thirdly, the reader of the book was SO inappropriate. He has a really young, cocky type of voice, which was SO out of context when reading the words of the "old ball coach". The reader sounded very robotic at times as well.

    There were a few nice little stories and interesting tidbits in this book, but you have to wade through so much boring, trivial, superficial type of stuff to get there. And they REALLY needed to get Flores to read this as apposed to some kid.
