    The NFL network is broadcasting the first super bowl tonight at 7:00 central. No original tapes existed so they had to use video from many sources to put the complete game back together. Should be fun. SPOILER: The Packers win. :D

    I want to see the commercials, some of which are now illegal.

    I would too....but I'm guessing they will be replaced by today's advertisers.....

    My Packers ARWL already picked this one up....Can't wait.

    Spoiler alert....Max McGee was hungover the day of the game, but got put in anyway and had a hell of a game!! :)

    Little known fact, the first Superbowl was the game between the Jets and Colts. The two previous games were officially called the AFL-NFL Championship game, but later were referred to as Superbowl I & II

    And they will be using the radio play by play call of Jim Simpson who passed away earlier this week.

    A disappointing presentation. The studio talk over is very annoying. The announcer cannot be heard for most of the "coverage".

    The BRIEF player/coach interviews inserted in the game are good ... but the constant chatter from the "professional viewers" talking over the game coverage could be omitted completely.

    Yes, a HUGE disappointment. You can't hear most of the play-by-play because of the studio clowns talking over it. Unfortunately, that is typical of NFL network and a reason I avoid their highlight shows (and other programming, for that matter). I used to watch their "Gameday" show, but it's just too annoying. Three or 4 guys laughing, cutting up, singing, and talking over the highlight segments, like they think think people tuned in to listen to them. It's amateur hour and I won't waste my time watching it.

    Not sure why they wouldnt pony up the cash to pay the guy with the good copy of the game. Its NFL history.

    If there is a "good copy" available then the NFL should pay a "recovery fee" to obtain it. But in 1967 very few people would have been in a position to make ANY copy of the game.

    There are many shows and episodes that are simply gone because someone considered the tape to be more valuable than the content.


    As for this production ... it is practically a waste of DVR space. If NFL Films releases the video and audio that the studio guys were talking over it will be worth watching. And if they want to interject participant interviews BETWEEN plays that could work. But the babble over the historic footage and audio ruined the presentation.

    NFL Films should be praised for piecing together the game ... but it is faint praise from a studio team that did not give the work the respect that it deserved. LISTENING and WATCHING the historic content.

    Can we have the DVD track "without commentary"?

    I read online a day or two ago that there was a guy with a good copy but that he wanted like 1 million bucks and they were only offering like $10K.

    A million bucks is about one to one and a half weeks pay to Roger Goodell. I think it was a fair asking price.

    As long as it would be broadcast quality that is a fair recovery fee. The potential seller can't do anything else with it anyways. They might as well reward them for having the foresight not to delete the copy.

    The existing tape in question is not even complete as there are key plays from the 3rd quarter that are missing.

    I think I read that as well. I'd rather have 75-85% of the first Super Bowl in good quality with the right broadcasters than 100% of the game not as it was seen.

    They could have used the sources used for this week's presentation to fill in the gaps.
