Later in the book is a chapter on the cowboy's "family secrets" and Bayless reports all sorts of unfounded rumors and half-truths about many Cowboys. At one point Bayless claims he knew all about the "real" Michael Irvin but choose not to report on it because what he was doing wasn't "breaking the law, and certainly hasn't affected his performance". Well Skip why are you reporting it now? Hmmmmmmmmm? Buying drugs, (which Irvin later pleaded no contest to) isn't illegal?
I will give Bayless credit for giving Barry Switzer more respect as a football coach than probably anyone else.Read more ›
A Dallas fan will find it fascinating to learn about the myriad of interwoven relationships, some sweet and smalltown, others downright adulterous, that make up the infrastructure of "America's Team".
If you didn't like Barry Switzer as a coach then you may not even like him as a human after reading this tell-all. After all this amazing team has accomplished in the nineties, the one most remarkable feat may be the survival of the Jerry Jones-Barry Switzer era however short it was.
One final note; If you come away from reading this book with any shread of respect for Larry Lacewell I suspect you may be a regular viewer of the Jerry Springer show. Get this and read it.
