Today the team is now rebuilding. The Raiders will climb again to greatness- it'll be exciting to see a new era begin!
There are also brief segments on both discs detailing: John Madden, Lanzio, the hated imaculate Reception against the Steelers, the Holy Roller vs. SD, the Heidi game against New York, the Raiderettes (a 16 minute program from a TV show back when the Raiders played in LA), Freddy Bilitnikoff, etc.
The Secound disc was my favorite. It has about 50+ minutes of almost the entire game of "Ghost to the Post" 1977 AFC Playoff battle between our Raiders and the then Baltimore Colts. You see all the old footage from the game, the TV announcers calling it, players from the game recolecting their experiences, and the NFL films narrator. I've seen this game on the DVD 2 times in the last 24 hours it's this good. The game is brilliantly explained as the last great day for Baltimore Colt fans and how they had a swift decline in the short years after before moving to Indy.
The secound disc has two AL Davis retrospectives on equality and his reclaimation projects.
If you guessed that I'm from Baltimore... (ringy dingy dingy!)
NFL Films is amazing. Ed Sabol is the ultimate pioneer. This is the ultimate buy!
