    Good thing this DVD was released before this miserable season. And too bad this season is now a permanent part of Chiefs history.

    The DVD is nice to have IMO. My few minor gripes would be as others have mentioned. They didn't touch on good players who played during bad seasons (Art Still, Gary Barbaro, Deron Cherry, Lloyd Burress, etc.). They didn't cover some of the disappointing playoff loses during the Marty years (I know it would hurt to see them again - but it is part of the history).

    They made some strange editorial choices in order to move things along faster. For example, during the section where they discuss Trent Green's season ending injury VS. the Bengals. They cut to a soundbite of Herm's where he discusses the need to move forward. At the same time they intercut a shot of Herm clapping on the sideline among the injury footage. The clapping was clearly from a different point in the game. The more representative way of doing this would have been to deal with the injury and then cut to the press conference where Herm made his statements. But that would add to the running time, which I guess they were trying to avoid.

    All in all it's nice to have, though far from complete as many important Chiefs players & units (the defense during the 90's for example) weren't discussed as much as I would have liked.

    Unfortunately, it is probably the closest to complete we will ever see.

    Can sometimes find them individually too but not sure always if the sites are as reputable as ones like Amazon.

    Here's a description from one of them (I cite this just to highlight and note what is said about Len Dawson!)

    Super Bowl 4 / IV Full Length Game on DVD - Pre-Game, Half-Time, Post-Game Included
    Kansas City 23 - Minnesota 7
    Tulane Stadium
    New Orleans, Louisiana
    January 11, 1970
    Attendance: 80,562
    MVP: Len Dawson, QB, Kansas City
    The AFL squared the Super Bowl at two games apiece with the NFL,building a 16-0 halftime lead behind Len Dawson's superb quarterbacking and a powerful defense.
    Dawson, the fourth consecutive quarterback to be chosen the Super Bowl's top player, called an almost flawless game, completing 12 of 17 passes and hitting Otis Taylor on a 46-yard play for the final Chiefs touchdown.
    The Kansas City defense limited Minnesota's strong rushing game to 67 yards and had three interceptions and two fumble recoveries.
    The crowd of 80,562 set a Super Bowl record, as did the gross receipts of $3,817,872.69.

    $15 isn't bad. I bet it is all black and white though.

    Yep that's where I got that from. Sounds like an okay title for a website. I did once purchase Dallas and Pittsburgh Super Bowl 10 on dvd for $20 from Ebay. I'd love to have both KC super Bowls but in color, like you say. Gotta see the RED beat the PURPLE!

    Also, I love Hank Stram, but some of the Toup's he was wearing in those interviews were hilarious.
