Interference: How Organized Crime Influences Professional Football

'“[Moldea] wrote perhaps the most important sports book in the history of the language. He painted the true and terrifying picture of a business whose movers and shakers seem to have more connections to gambling and the mob than to touchdowns and Super Bowls. . . . Moldea even exonerated some of the game’s more dubious characters, spending as much time debunking alleged crookedness as he did documenting the real thing.” —Keith Olbermann“Interference shreds the sanctimonious NFL facade and exposes the league’s hierarchy for what it really is—a bunch of wheeler-dealers who are in bed with the very associations they publicly denounce. Fascinating reading.” —The Gold Sheet“Mob contacts within the NFL appear to be as subtle and profitable as insider trading on Wall Street. . . . Learning about this ‘infiltration’ by Mafia players makes Moldea’s book quite a page-turner.” —San Francisco Chronicle“This book, which details the influence of gambling and the link to organized crime in the NFL, is credible for one particular reason: It indicts the owners of the league more than the players and exposes the NFL for the gambling machine that it is.” —Rocky Mountain News“Interference is like a hard-nosed fullback . . . packed with names, dates, and places, hitting the holes until the defense—one’s incredulity—gives way. The weight of evidence is overwhelming.” —Los Angeles Times'
