"Don't let the 3 stars fool you. This DVD set is going to be a valuable part of my library.
The reason for the middling rating is that a few of the films on these DVDs didn't interest me because they didn't contain vintage NFL action, which is what I love about these releases.
One was about what some players from the late-1960s, early-1970s did in the off-season, and two were about a minor-league football team.
However, "Eyeball to Eyeball," "More Than a Game," "Big Game America," "The Old, the Bold, and the Young," and "Lombardi" are all going to be rewatched many times over the coming months and are highly recommended for old-school football fans.
IT'S UP ... IT'S GOOD !!

"As has been stated by this reviewer before, if you're looking for a negative review, about anything produced by NFL Films, from me, you are going to be looking for a long time. I am biased.
This 3-disc set is classic NFL footage. There are highlights from the 60s&70s, spiked with episodes of the "Lost Treasures" series. As opposed to Volumes 1-3 of this series, Volumes 4-6 do not feature "commentary" options, where you play a program and listen to Steve Sabol, of NFL Films, spin stories about what you are looking at. You know, I kind of miss that.
Anyway ... this three-volume set includes the incredible "Autumn Ritual" video from the 1980s. That alone makes the buy worthwhile.
