3.0 out of 5 stars bad choice of games in Raider history Dec 21 2009
By Brian Maitland TOP 500 REVIEWER
Why do Americans like to hype things up so much? Yes, the Super Bowl is the NFL's title game but that alone does not make it great. As a lapsed Raiders fan (sorry, having Kim Jong Il's evil twin still in power and his Commitment to Excrement through the '00s has turned me against them), the three greatest games in Raiders history are as follows:
--1974's "Sea of Hands" divisional playoff game vs. the two-time defending champs, the Miami Dolphins
--1976's AFC championship when the Raiders finally got over the hump and beat also the two-time defending champion Pittsburgh Steelers
--1977 "Ghost to the Post" divisional playoff game vs. the Baltimore Colts that went back and forth as QBs Ken Stabler and Bert Jones put on a clinic for the ages
or substitute with any Chiefs vs. Raiders battle in any era.

This DVD caliming these are the three greatest Raider games is a joke. Just buy the box set that has the three Raider Super Bowl win highlight films as it also has league highlights for the year in that set.

Forget this as these Uber Bore wins are not great games at all. They are all blowouts. Great wins for us Raider fans but boring as heck to rewatch.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Complete Broadcasts Jan. 24 2009
By Wilcy Moore - Published on Amazon.com
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 Jan. 14 2009
By Notelexxsenob - Published on Amazon.com

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 - Published on Amazon.com

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).

In addition to the games mentioned by other reviewers, the following games would also have been worth considering for inclusion: 1973 playoff rout of Pittsburgh (the Immaculate Reception Revenge game); 1974 MNF win over Dallas (the Blanda QB game); 1976 MNF rout of Cincy that showed they had no fear of meeting Pittsburgh again (which John Madden has called his proudest moment); 1976 playoff win over Pat's (sorry NE fans, but the roughing call was correct; he hit Stabler in the head); the 1980 "Mistake by the Lake" playoff win over CLE; the 1982 MNF comeback win against SD; and the 2002 AFC Championship win.

One other note - If you have personal recordings of these games that include pre and/or post games shows that you want to keep, hang on to those recordings. The NFL did not include any pre or post game materials in these releases.

All in all, it's nice to get these discs, but a lot more could have been done with this release.

I liked it. 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.
