    I can't seem to find the Packers/Vikings catches (Bradford and Freeman) in '99 and '00. Do any of you know if they have it?

    I think a lot of videos got removed off of youtube because of copyright problems. they "didnt have permission" to "republish" the stuff I think.

    YouTube doesn't have the rights to broadcast copyright material. They were able to get 'away with it' before they were bought by a mainstream company that makes massive profits. Before Google bought them out, YouTube was not a money maker, they made enough to pay those working on the project an the cost of the servers.

    NFL wants NO ONE to make money off their product. I can't much blame them. If you look on lesser known sites that are similar to YouTube you will find more NFL videos there because they do not make monetary profit on it and are not 'big' enough for the NFL to notice them.

    I have some of mine there too then I mistakenly told trom about the site. d'oh!

    The key is to name them weird and hot link them on a different website. Otherwise it'll get the NFL's attention if/when the site becomes large.
