Praise for “The Cleveland Rams”

Winner of the 2016 Nelson Ross Award from the Professional Football Researchers Association for “outstanding achievement in pro football research and historiography.”

“It is a wonderful story rich in little nuggets of intrigue and drama (with) a little bit of comedy mixed in there, I think frankly mostly forgotten by fans of the current Rams franchise. Jim has recounted in great detail a very interesting and fun-to-read book that chronicles some of the interesting stories and times of the team that got its start as the seventh- or eighth-longest-running consecutive franchise in the NFL, in Cleveland.” Tim Hanlon, Good Seats Still Available Podcast

“This belongs on the shelf of any NFL history buff. It’s just incredibly well written, vivid, dramatic. It’s just pitch perfect, and I really can’t recommend this book enough.” — Joshua Neuman, The Greatest Show on Grass Los Angeles Rams Podcast

“If you are into NFL history, this one will give you more information than you thought possible on the Cleveland Rams. I am not sure I’ve seen a better-researched football book.” — John Turney, Pro Football Journal

“This is a well researched and well written account of the Rams years in Cleveland and beyond. It will be interesting for both the casual reader and the sport historian.” — Russ Crawford, Sport in American History

“Throughout the narrative, Sulecki integrates a number of social issues, including race relations, corporate power, and the deep importance of football to many fans.” — ProtoView

“The first book to examine the history of the Cleveland Rams and the context surrounding the team’s move to Los Angeles. Research is thorough. Recommended for both Cleveland and Rams fans alike.” Mind’s Eye Press

“One of the finest sports books I have read. Have been a Rams fan for 45 years and I am so glad I read this book. Could not put it down.”
“Five stars: Great read!”
“An excellent book documenting the Rams and the early years of the NFL.”
