30 For 30 "Believeland" Review - AVClub

AVClub: Way back in October of 2009, the second episode of 30 For 30, “The Band That Wouldn’t Die” (directed by Barry Levinson!) told the story of the fan-led Baltimore Colts marching band, and how they kept the spirit of football alive in the city after the team moved to Indianapolis. The episode established one of 30 For 30’s recurring themes, about how sports history’s “losers” sometimes have just as much spirit and personality as the perennial champs. But Levinson’s documentary also noted—if only in passing—the capriciousness and illogic of fans. The Colts faithful felt betrayed when Indy stole their team. So they stole Cleveland’s.

The story is too old to be commented.
