Good content bad resolutionThe content is absolutely great. Nice story telling technique you will enjoy. Starts off with the Stars of Football and not really a chronological evolution of football. I kind of like this because I could relate to all the big names. As I watched the other episodes I warmed up to the other lesser known charachters.
