Gear of The Week

After a game like this recent one, you can be forgiven for seeking solace in memories of past glories. Thus, I am selecting Stadium Stories: Oakland Raidersas my Gear of The Week.

This small 200-page book artfully recaps the legendary games and players that comprise the lore of the Oakland Raiders. It is written by Tom LaMarre, who was a Raiders beat writer for the Oakland Tribune during the 1970s. The general lack of historic Raiders literature makes this book all the more essential. It costs just $9.95—a perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite Raiders fan (including yourself).

Quaketown ... If I were to read one of Tatums books which would you recommend?

1. They call me Assasin
2. They still call me Assasin
3. Final confessions of NFL Assasin

If I recall correctly, "Final Confessions" is simply the first two books reprinted in a single volume, with some extra parting thoughts. So you can't go wrong with that edition. Of the two orginal books, "They Call Me Assassin" was my preference.

Has anybody read, "Don't worry, it is just a bruise?" It was the basis of the movie "Any Given Sunday."

I read "You're Okay, It's Just a Bruise" a while ago. As I recall, it's some pretty boy former Raiders team physician trying to expose the flexible ethics of NFL medicine (while absolving himself of complicity, of course). To his credit, I think he was ahead of the curve on sounding the alarm about steroids, and it includes some amusing anecdotes.

It was good for what it was. Wayne Huezengua (sp?) did try to come off like he was above it all. But it is still something I would read today.

There were some good stories in that. I actually respected Jim Plunkett and felt he came out of that book pretty good.

NFL Adam, I'm glad that you haven't yet acted on your threat to stop reading Raider Take - it means we still have time to win you over to the Silver and Black (plus, we'd miss your commentary).
