    If they included the commercials, it might be worth it [​IMG]

    These aren't really anything new--just more of the Super Bowl highlights and NFL collections (50 Greatest Quarterbacks, NFL's 100 Greatest Moments, etc.) that have come out in the past. Look at what NFL Films and USA Home Video released during their time together as an example of what to expect. WHV is just a new partner for NFL Films after USA folded.

    Directly from the press release:

    I usually don't question the NFL in their judgement because they obviously have the best business sense of the 4 major sports, but why don't they release Super Bowls in their entirety on video or DVD? Seems like a no brainer to me. As a Bronco fan, I would love the 98 and 99 games in full!

    Maybe they will release full games this time, now that they are teamed with Warner.

    Can someone please check with the weather service and double-check the temp in hell? There's a non-snapper DVD case with a Warner Bros shield on it!

    The only SB DVDs I want are the entire game. I would love to see the Steel Curtain in their glory.

    Heh, I wonder if they'll use some of ABC's HD footage.....

    But yes, I will not buy any "best ofs" or "highlights" package....

    I want the live play-by-play for the entire game....

    Or at least what they offer on ESPN Classic for college games...(sometimes they skip ahead in the action, but you see it from the main camera angles with the TV announcing team...just as if you saw it live on TV....

    I have no interest in football, but yes, complete game is a must. Why they're releasing these "highlight" videos is beyond me. I myself am a hockey fan, and have the Stanley Cup-winning games taped from 1994 on. Complete games, some of which went into multiple overtimes! These would be awesome multi-disc sets. No need for stupid extras - just the complete game, from the first whilste to the last - okay, perhaps maybe the pre- and post-game. Is there a reason they won't release complete games? Does ESPN have a home video department?

    I'm skeptical. I'd be very surprised if it was anything beyond the short NFL Films recap of the superbowl. The Super Bowl XXXVII dvd streets on 2/11, so I don't expect much. Just a DVD version of the VHS tape they release every year.

    The NFL's longstanding policy is that it presents "live entertainment," which is why it so jealously guards rebroadcasts or video releases of entire games. Its philosophy is that games then are more special -- kind of like old closed-circuit boxing telecasts, or something like that. The release above says "action from every series," which does not equal the entire game or every play.
    It appears very much that the NFL is loosening its policy somewhat. I just ordered and received a DVD the Patriots are offering on their official website that has *almost* every play from each of their three playoff games last year (including the Super Bowl) titled "3 Games to Glory":

    It was produced by NFL Films and has its footage of the plays start to finish (cutting mostly immediately to the next play) accompanied by audio of the radio broadcast. Each game is 30 minutes.
    Very nice disc for Patriots fans, and worth checking out for all football fans because they had two great postseason games last year. (I ordered it because I thought the snow bowl was one of the coolest games ever). $19.95.

    Reviving a dead thread here. I just watched this DVD after renting it from Netflix. The main feature is the usual NFL Films 60min doc. But in the special features section there is an option for TV Broadcast. This is basically an edited full version of the game. I don't know who the guys are announcing it though. 99.99% of the plays are there (a kickoff or two here and there were edited out) and save for a few replays of major plays, it goes from the end of a play to the start of the next (but is done very smoothly and the announcing seems to have been done for this version as it flows smooth and no obvious cuts). While it is not the national tv broadcast, it is a very big step up. The game runs for about 1 hour and 10 minutes.

    Please say that the footage of all the little dances they sometimes did after a big play are still in there. Those were a hoot! [​IMG]

    If they actually release a DVD with the complete game then I would buy. I have no interest in a highlight video, no interest.
