Abstract:

"There is no failure like televised failure. It is the most public failure. The most humbling failure. So it was odd when the two men who had assembled the biggest bomb in television history began high-fiving on the sidelines of the XFL's final game." "But not everyone was celebrating, Dick Butkus bristled, Jesse Ventura just wanted it all to end. And the general public couldn't wait to watch something completely different."

"Brett Forrest's Long Bomb is the unofficial inside story of what really happened in the XFL, the renegade football league dreamed up by NBC and the World Wrestling Federation. Forrest reported on the XFL from its first training camp to its championship game, and he takes us inside the limousines and locker rooms and onto the field to deliver the dope that NBC's all-access camera only promised. Along the way, Long Bomb seamlessly interweaves the story lines that arose from the doomed enterprise."--Jacket.
