This to me is real football. They started getting rid of real football in the mid-late 80's. Nowadays if you touch a guy you get flagged 15. Back then you could bite, clothesline etc, and rarely was anything called.

I noticed the Clotheline. Anyone remember Charles Martin and his hit list? But I think every sport has gotten softer. I remember back in the 8O;s we use to play basketball in NYC and we seldom heard foul. The motto then was no blood, no foul. Today I see kids calling foul on everything.

**** Night Train Lane was a master at clothesline and head tackles

Now that you've watched Super Bowl I, get your hands on the Bob McGinn book about each super bowl. He has a lot of great interviews in there with the coaches and players that give you a better flavor for how the game played out.

If Clay Mathews had connected on this hit......... Wilson leaves on a stretcher, and we win the championship game... He shanked the hit, and almost broke him...

I loved it and i want more...

If you haven't seen Super Bowl I before perhaps you haven't seen the Ice Bowl - if you can get the entire game on youtube, or elsewhere, I recommend it.

I watched half of Super Bowl one with my Dad and brothers. I got so excited about football that my friends and I went out to play football at halftime and never came back in for the rest of the game. (Those were the days when kids actually went outside to play. ;))
