NFL Films & The Raiders


"With the recent loss of NFL Films Founder and President, I wanted to reflect back on their own reflection of The Raiders!

Starting with John Facenda narration of 'The Autumn Wind', NFL Films in most ways glorified The Raiders and gave Al Davis the attention he most certainly deserved. NFL Film last point was "A Football Life" - Al Davis which was thrown together in the light of the death of our fearless leader. Lest to say, it was done well although did not offer anything new and was basically a miss-mash of old comments and a few new ones from the Raider NFL Films regulars.

Never-th-less NFL Films was uncommon in the day, started because the Filmmaker's thought they needed to expand the horizon of the game that the TV Networks could not do on the field and put Film cameras with sound in places the Audience could never imagine in a game. They did, presented their Films each week on different Networks and became wildly successful.

Their mini-Doc Format with narration and testimonials along with game footage was unheard of. NFL Films put you into the game like never before and attributed to the NFL becoming America's #1 followed Sport. The Sabels will long be remembered throughout time as the fore-father's and on the fore-front of Behind the Scenes videos that we all see now day to day on Sports highlight News. They changed the face of the league giving you the understanding of the game like never before.

Lately they have a agreement with The NFL Network so we can watch their Specials and archival Programming there. But for me, its how they treated The Raiders! With respect!

"When everyone else ran away, it was the NFL Film's camera's that really caught what it was and should be today to be a Raider!"

Let our Autumn Wind be a everlasting Season of Excellence and long live NFL Films!
