    HBO special: Rebels of Oakland

    I'm really dying here after 4, 4, 5 and 2 wins in the last four seasons. I need to watch the Raiders win again. Like the rest of you I'm full of hope for the 2007 season, but that's still over six months away. So I'm going to order a few DVDs: NFL Films Oakland Raiders Complete History and NFL Films Oakland Raiders Super Bowl Collection. I grew up with a non-sports watching family, so I didn't get into football until I went to college. Being at Cal, I had to choose between the wine & cheese Niners and the renegade Raiders. Easy choice. I happened to get in at a good time, two years after Chuckie was hired. But now after 15 wins in the last four years, I figured this would be a good time to learn all about the Raiders' glory years, and some knowledge about the A's wouldn't hurt.

    My question is this: does anyone know where I can buy the HBO special called Rebels of Oakland: The A's, the Raiders, the '70s? I've looked everywhere online and found lots of information and clips, but no purchasing information.

    Also, how do I do a search on this forum? I can't find the search button...

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Also, another question... are there any other DVDs I should look at? I thought about Silver & Black Forever: The Story of the 2002 Oakland Raiders, but I watched every play of every game religiously that season, so it's still crystal clear in my memory. My favorite play, hands down, was Rod Woodson's interception returned for a TD AT Denver that turned the whole season around after their four game losing streak.

    Another one is Raiders: Team for All Decades it was made after the 1990 season i think you can only get it on VHS but it is great, also has the highlights from ghost to the post and sea of hands from greatest games volumes 1 and 2

    The Complete History is excellent! Also, Raider Nation is a DVD filmed during the entire 2002 season and is all about the fans.
