|I went to the Steelers Store on Saturday, and I picked up the new DVD set they were advertising associated with the Steelers. The DVD is Pittsburgh Steelers: Five Greatest Games. The 5-DVD set was the 5 Super Bowl victories of the Steelers in their original broadcast form. Each DVD contained one of the Super Bowl victory games in their entirety with the original boradcasteras, etc.
It was only priced at $20.00. This should have raised some red flags.
I was watching it today and the games are rather atrocious in their quality. These are not bootlegs. The Steelers Stores would not put out bootleg stuff, because they are sanctioned by the NFL. The DVD set is a property of NFL Films.
I have some questions:
Couldn't they have cleaned these films up a little?
I expected maybe bad quality from 1975-1976, but in the late 80's, you would think that the quality would have been better.
Why wouldn't the NFL want clean copies to go out for distribution? I have seen older stuff put out by the NFL that looks better than these games.
Any insights on this? Has anybody purchased such a set for other teams?
