I am a big fan of NFL Films. The footage that they shot in the 1960s has allowed younger fans, like myself, to get a real feel not only for AFL games, but also for the personalities that made the league a success. This film follows my two favorite AFL coaches, Sid Gillman and Hank Stram. These two men were not only innovators in the professional game, but also the longest-standing and most successful of AFL coaches. It can be argued that these two coaches did as much as anyone to help ensure the AFL’s ultimate survival. Enjoy!
