ESPN proved yet again several years ago that their audience will watch long-form storytelling, even if the focus isn’t exactly on sports, as long as the story is told in A+ fashion. Their 30 For 30 series has been nothing short of fantastic, and monumental for the network as a whole. OJ: Made In America won the network its first Oscar this past year; the film was roughly 8 hours long.

The only parameters for an amazing ESPN 30 For 30? There must be an amazing story to tell that hasn’t yet been told in great detail. And the story being told must have originally occurred during the ESPN era (1979 -).

Below are just eight sports documentaries I feel should be made asap.
