1.0 out of 5 stars Not Complete Broadcasts January 24, 2009
Verified Purchase
I just finished watching the Super Bowl XI game and it is very disappointing. The video is fine (Curt Gowdy & Don Meredith) and the fades to and from commercials are much better than previous releases, but the NFL still refuses to put out complete games. This particular game has roughly 14 plays missing from it (I lost count).

One of the trickiest edits they put in was with 5:40 left in the game, the Vikings brought in their backup QB, Bob Lee. They showed Lee throwing a pass, then cut to the sidelines, then they showed Lee throwing another pass. The problem is that the second pass came with less than 2 minutes remaining in the game. They cut out about 3.5 minutes of game time in between the two passes, which included an entire series by the Raiders. Obviously, they tried to make this unnoticeable. Give me a break!

If Major League Baseball can release full games that take up over 2 hours, why can't the NFL? The SB XI game is scrunched down and amazingly lasts an even 2 hours.

3.0 out of 5 stars This Review Should Prepare You For What You Get January 14, 2009
Verified Purchase
The complete Super Bowl broadcasts are on these DVDs. Here's what you should know:

Super Bowl XI (Rating: 2 stars) All of these Super Bowls were saved on tape, not film. The quality is poor. The picture is very faded and a bit blurry. However, if you adjust the brightness/contrast and color level on your TV you can get a semi-decent image. This is acceptable for Raider fans who do not have their own VHS copy. One major flaw...near the end of the first half the Vikings are driving towards the end zone and the next thing you know, the Raiders have the ball. Was there a punt, fumble, interception? I don't know as that part is missing from this DVD.

Super Bowl XV (Rating: 3 stars) The quality varies. About 80% of the time the quality is very good, however for an unknown reason about 20% of the time the image quality drops considerably. This is annoying but for Raider fans, you can live with it if, again, you do not have your own copy.

Super Bowl XVIII (Rating: 4 stars) The quality is very good and the game is almost totally complete. This was just like watching it when it was orginally broadcast.

3.0 out of 5 stars Little Commitment to Excellence.... March 10, 2009
By JEP
Verified Purchase
While it's nice for Raider fans to get a release in this series, it's a little underwhelming. All that is released are the 3 Super Bowl wins, the highlights of which were already included in the "Super Bowl Champions" dvd series release.

The video quality of the games with the Eagles and Redskins is generally very good, but the copy of Super Bowl XI against the Vikings is not much better than the copy that has widely circulated among game traders for a long time.

As other reviewers have pointed out, there are a large number of great games involving the Raiders that could have easily filled a 10 disc release like the ones done for the Packers and Cowboys. Even conceding that it is unlikely that full game broadcasts are still available in commercial quality from the 1960's era team with Lamonica, there are plenty of games from the 1970's and later that should be available.

First and foremost is the legendary "Sea of Hands" playoff win over Miami in 1974. The NFL recently added that game to their 90 minute "Greatest Games" series and made much fanfare in the intro to the show about how they had finally located the long missing tape of the game. It thus seems odd that they would not include it in this set that was released around the same time. (However, from a close viewing of the new show, it appears that what they really found was only the NFL Films sideline coverage of the game, as there seems to be an inordinate number of sideline shot's in the new show, and little if any additional game film beyond the old half hour highlight show often shown).

Iam glad nfl is finally releasing these games, I just wish the raiders had more games on this box set like, The holly roller game, the sea of hands game, Bo vs bosworth game, the afc championship game 2002, Ghost to the post game, or the 1976 afc championship game were they finally beat there hated rival at the time the pittsburgh steelers to go on to super bowl 11.

The transfer is of a good enough quality to not lose itself on big screens. Great gift for any Raiders fan, especially given the last couple of years we've had.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pretty good release (albeit not flawless) July 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a release of the "3 Greatest Games" of the Oakland Raiders (who later became the L.A. Raiders, and are now once again the Oakland Raiders). The "3 Greatest Games" of this release are the 3 big Super Bowl wins that the Raiders have had in their history: #11 against Minnesota in 1977, #15 against Philadelphia in 1981, and #18 against Washington in 1984 (the last one as the L.A. Raiders).

In the first one, #11 against Minnesota (1/9/77 from NBC; played in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena), the Raiders won 32-14. Kenny Stabler was the QB. Fred Biletnikoff made 4 key receptions to become MVP. Curt Gowdy and Don Meredith were the announcers. The NBC logo here was a red and blue trapezoidal N which made its debut at the beginning of 1976 in the Orange Bowl of that year.

In the second one, #15 against Philly (1/25/81, also from NBC, and played in the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans), the Raiders won 27-10. The quarterback for Oakland was Jim Plunkett, and he earned MVP honors by throwing for 3 touchdowns, the foremost of which was an 80-yd. pass to Kenny King on a third-down play near the end of the first quarter. Cliff Branch accounted for the other two, and both on opening drives: one to open the game, the other in the second half. Rod Martin contributed mightily on defense as well with 3 interceptions. Dick Enberg and Merlin Olsen were the commentators here, and this would be one of several that they would do for NBC (which also included #17 [Miami/Washington in 1983, from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena], and #20 [Chicago/New England, 1/26/86, another one from the Superdome]). Another thing you might not have known is that nos. 15, 17, and 20 were done under NBC's Proud N insignia (N with 11-feathered peacock).
