The Asterisk: A Fan's Grievance On Cheating And Rule Manipulation In The NFL

· Asterisk Press

About this ebook

The NFL's affirmative action to protect less athletic and immobile quarterbacks over decades has resulted in a ripple effect of change to every defensive position on the field. Dominant athletes have had to conform to greater subjective on-field enforcement or face massive fines.

The Asterisk uses comparison analysis, player statistics, and first-hand sources to give compelling insight on the more than two decades' worth of cheating and rule manipulation that precipitated a spillover of success for the New England Patriots in today's NFL.

The Asterisk is a fact-based analysis that highlights the unscrupulous factors elevating the Patriots to so-called G.O.A.T. status: 

- The manipulation of rules to protect less athletic quarterbacks in the NFL for decades

- Massive cheating by the Patriots over the better part of a decade and the eventual cover-up 

- Rules that are biased against more mobile quarterbacks who are endangered on the field 

The Author takes the reader on a riveting journey through the history of the NFL, revealing stunning truths about the nefarious factors that propelled the Patriots to dominance in the League.
