"I've been attracted to the smiling pirate image (he is smiling?) of the Silver & Black ever since I was a little kid. I love EVERYTHING here: *especially* the '70s, '80s & L.A Raiders...
*Mentioned on these discs- (usually very briefly)*: early '60s players; Jim Otto; quarterback Tom Flores; Clem Daniels; Art Powell; miserable beginnings; Al Davis' vision of excellence; dramatic turnaround 1-13 to 10-4; AFL-NFL merger; coach John Rauch; Gene Upshaw; Willie Brown; Daryle "Mad Bomber" Lamonica; Warren Wells; Fred Biletnikoff; Super Bowl II loss to Green Bay; infamous "Heidi Game" vs Jets in '68; coach John Madden's incredible 10+year career; George Blanda's miracle season; great games & plays in the '70s; Pittsburgh & "Immaculate Reception"; Miami & "Sea of Hands"; tackle Art Shell; Cliff Branch; Kenny "The Snake" Stabler; Super Bowl XI victory over Minnesota; Dave Casper; in-depth playoff game coverage against Colts in '77 "Ghost to the Post"; infamous Denver non-fumble; San Diego & "Holy Roller"; coach Tom Flores; Lester Hayes' 13 interceptions in '80; Jim Plunkett leads 1st-ever WildCard team to Super Bowl; Super Bowl XV victory over Philidelphia; banning of Stick 'em; Super Bowl XVIII victory over Washington; Tiger Woods= Raiders fan; '80s L.A. Raiders; Howie Long's 8 Pro-Bowls; Mike Haynes= hall-of-fame corner; Marcus Allen's *many* accomplishments; Bo Jackson- 2 sport Pro-Bowl/All-Star athlete; Art Shell- 1st black headcoach of modern era; Willie Gault & James Jett speedsters; Tim Brown; Ronnie Lott; Eric Dickerson; '90s drought; coach John Gruden & team resurgence; Rich Gannon; Rod Woodson; Jerry Rice; 5 Super Bowls/ 3 victories in 4 different decades; Raider Nation; Raiderettes; and more!

"I am in no way a Raiders fan (go Ravens!), but this is an excellent DVD! Disc number one has a nice history covering the first forty some years of Raiders football. The features are worth a look too (with many classic games [Heidi, Holly Roller, Immaculate Reception, "Sea of Hands"]). My favorite disc is disc number two. It contains a wonderfully put together sixty some minute long feature on the 1977 AFC Divisional playoff between the Oakland Raiders and the Baltimore Colts. This double-OT classic (which is mostly overlooked) took place on December 24, 1977 in Baltimore's Memorial Stadium. A surprising amount of attention is cast on the Colts rather than the Raiders! I say this because the Raiders ended up winning on a seventy-sixth minute TD pass to Dave Casper (hence the Ghost to the Post). NFL Films, like always, did a fantastic job with this piece considering that they had to find a complete game WCBM radio broadcast (WHICH IS NOT EASY TO DO!) and sync it with game footage. Chuck Thompson and Vince Bagli call a wonderfull game coupled with present day interviews of the players and coaches who were a part of it. This very classy representation of the mostly ignored BALTIMORE COLTS does the game some well deserved justice. Maybe some of you Indianapolis fans will be able to see the genesis of your CHOKING ways in the playoffs.

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!"

"This is a Raider Fan's "Must Have" DVD! From the history to the memorable moments, it's all here. For the younger Raider Fans, this also shows the history of the Raiders and you'll see why Raider Fans are notorious for being the most loyal. As a 30+ year fan, it brought back many memories for me and to have it on DVD and not wait for it on ESPN Classics or NFL Network is a real treat. I definitely loved the "Old School" Raiders where crying was not allowed the rules allowed football to be played the way is was meant to be...."Man to Man"."

""and upside down, and laugh till they've conquered and won..." John Facenda's line epitomizes the Oakland Raider DVD collection. Recalling many famous moments in team history, I was most intrigued by their exhibitions of resilency, as they lost so many AFL/AFC Championships before actually winning one in 1976 (Steelers were shorthanded in that game, but it wouldn't have mattered.). My only comlaint is that I wish the second DVD was the 1974 Divisional playoff game versus the Miami Dolphins, the general public opinion of their greatest game. Still, it was fun reviewing all the raider greats from Art Powell to Tim Brown. AL DAVIS is an incredible man!!!

A must view!!!"
