If you miss football “the way it used to be” on TV, you’re in luck.
The NFL channel on YouTube has been releasing full games every week as of late, as aired by the original broadcasters, with commercials taken out. Some of these games go back as early as Super Bowl VI, which took place in January of 1972 on the CBS network.
If you have the means to download YouTube material onto your hard drive (for example, the Video Download Helper that you can use with the Firefox browser), it’s a great way to build a library of classic NFL action.
Who knows if the NFL will ever be great again, to coin a phrase heard so often in 2016. But these games show the legendary players and teams at their best.
