Starless: Steve Massey talks about the 1947 Steelers in this exclusive interview

Christina Rivers and Brian Roach sit down with Steve Massey, author of "Starless: The 1947 Pittsburgh Steelers" in an exclusive interview. Steve discusses topics in his book, including the strained relationship between "Jock" Sutherland and "Bullet" Bill Dudley and the no-name gridiron brawlers who gelled to make the Steelers' first championship run in franchise history and how tragedy led to Pittsburgh enduring another 25 years before making another playoff appearance.

Steve and Christina discuss training camp at Camden Springs (PA), Sutherland's coaching idealogy, "Big Bertha", the infamous "puke-a-cola", and the 1947 team.

Steve and Brian talk about similarities between the modern Steelers' issues with "stars" versus coaches and Dudley versus Sutherland. Steve also weighs in on Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell.
