Pretty Good DVD, But Not Exactly What I Expected

"When the description said "audio commentary," I took that to mean that maybe you could switch between the AFC and NFC radio broadcasts. I've bought NFL DVDs where you can do that. And maybe even have a third audio track for the TV broadcast. But, the AFC and NFC radio broadcasts are on ONE audio channel with no John Madden and Al Michaels around. So, don't throw away that your VHS recording of the Super Bowl just yet.On the positive side, you DO get virtually EVERY play of the Super Bowl (I think they might have skipped some punts which didn't affect the game, which is good). So, the whole game is edited to a little under an HOUR. Also, the NFL Films version of the whole Tampa Bay season also clocks in just under an hour.Also, as a "student" of football, I also liked the pre and post-game shows which broke down plays and explained what happened. Ron Jaworski and Merrill Hoge are good at doing their homework.There's also a couple of other documentaries about media day and international broadcasts of the Super Bowl.Not a spectacular sports DVD (I'm not sure if it exists yet) but a pretty good one (if you're not a Raiders fan)."
Description is Wrong

"I love the DVD as a Bucs fan but several aspects of the Editorial Review are wrong:"The 2003 release will contain an unprecedented 3 full hours of Super Bowl coverage including every series from the game as originally broadcast"-- Not true. Several "meaningless" series have been edited out of the game, the Raiders last possession of the first half is gone for example. I belive one entire Bucs series is gone as well. Also not true the "as broadcast bit". While some series are missng entire plays have been excised at various points- punt and kick returns are often gone for example. Also, you get the football [in fast forward] view of the game with all the huddling up parts gone. This isn't bad unless you wanted to hear more of the audio from the broadcast teams when they do analysis in between plays."See every series of the game as broadcast on national TV, with AFC and NFC radio broadcast overlay" Also wrong. In addition to not being as broadcast, only the Bucs radio track is on the disk. I really wanted to hear the Raiders announcers crying over their defeat but won't get that joy. In sum, many of the features that I wnated to get aren't on this disk but, if you are a Bucs fan, it is well worth having to relive the glory of the game, albeit chopped up."
For the casual fan as well as the fanatic

"If you're a Buc fan, this DVD's for you. The Voice of the Bucs, Gene Deckeroff, you'll hear throughout. Especially those of us out of the area that couldn't get Gene's broadcast and had to either listen to the TV announcers or the ESPN ones on the radio who all but ruled out Tampa. Just about the entire Super Bowl game is on this and highlights of every game played this season. Funny how quickly it goes when plays are done right after each other not waiting for the clock, delays or any commercials. It's the most complete DVD of an NFL team I've seen so far. There has to be somewhere that actually has game from long ago. If ESPN Classic can play the college games in full, where are the NFL ones?"
A Must for Bucs Fans

"Great DVD! Yes they did cut down the broadcast, but I taped that. It was great to hear Deckerhoff's version of the game. I also thought the mix from Tampa Radio to Oakland radio was a neat touch. The highlights portion of the DVD starts at the real beginning..the Bucs loss to Philadelphia the year before in the playoffs. All the games are highlighted and the DVD has expanded highlights and a lot of good sideline conversations in the playoffs. Remember that this is a BUCS DVD, not an NFL season review DVD. It's all Bucs and it's all great!"
