"Yes, these games are taken from the original network broadcasts. However, they have been chopped or shortened to the point of irritation. The makers of this DVD could not even wait for certain sentences out of the broadcasters mouths to be finished before they fade out to the next segments. Many replays are gone and there is no pre-game coverage. The thing that disappointed and actually shocked me the most though was on the Super Bowl disc. Just over 5 seconds after the game ends, the DVD ends!!! After the most memorable finish in Super Bowl history, there is absolutely no coverage of post game or celebration of ANY kind!!! Why??? Most people who are interested in purchasing this collection are probably Rams fans. Did they think we would be bored by watching the COMPLETE broadcast? If you already have a decent copy of these games recorded from television, do yourself a favor and hold on to those instead of buying this. If you are a casual fan, I suppose it's better than nothing."

"FYI - These games are not complete. The Super Bowl game has 13 plays edited out of it, including nearly all of a Rams scoring drive in the second quarter. The fades to and from commercials are the most abrupt I've seen yet. They don't even let the announcer finish a sentence. Also, the disc ends with the most exciting final play of a Super Bowl, and they cut it off immediately after the official rules Dyson down. A couple of different replay angles sure would have been nice. Oh yeah, one other thing - the aspect ratio is listed in the product detail as being 1.66:1. It isn't. It's actually 1.33:1."
Relive the excitement!!

"Great compilation of the unforgetable 1999 season that was the Rams rise to glory. These 3 games are from the playoff drive including the Super Bowl. Warner to Bruce to start the game against Minnesota, Warner to Proehl for the win against the Bucs, alet's not forget Mike Jones' game saving tackle to preserve the win in against the Titans. Great gift for the Rams fan in your family!!"
Rams Bob & Weave to the Super Bowl!

"I bought these DVDs as a native St. Louisan and Rams fan, and have enjoyed them tremendously. Just watching the first quarter of the Divisional Playoff game against the Vikings was reason enough to put a smile on my face. Watching Warner, Faulk, & Bruce steamroll through the Vikings defense like they're not even there is loads of fun and makes you nostalgic for the glory days of the Greatest Show on Earth (or Turf, as Warren Sapp would later call it).
I do agree with some of the other comments about the abrupt transitions following scoring drives; it's quite odd to not let Pat Summerall even finish his sentences before fading to black. Something else was even more bizarre, though. The DVD package comes with a sticker on the front stating that this commemorates the Rams run to "Super Bowl XXXV". What the fudge?! Every Rams fan knows Super Bowl XXXIV was the one that ended with Mike Jones' tackle. SB XXXV didn't even feature the Rams, it was Ravens over Giants, for Pete's sake! Stuff like this gives the impression of a slapped-together product hastily assembled in an Indonesian sweatshop by malnourished orphans and put out for a quick buck.
Still, it's definitely worth the money for me to see these classic games again and relive the exhilaration of the Super Bowl THIRTY-FOUR run. Loved it! Go Rams!"
