DVD Box Sets
« on: December 15, 2007, 11:32:32 PM »
Anyone know where I could get old all ireland finals such as those featured on TG4 as a box set.  I think I remember seeing on for the 80's in Golden Discs once but couldnt find any, anywhere when I was looking today

I think the GAA should take a leaf out of the NFL (American football) manual and start producing their own archive footage. Wouldn't it be great in 30-40 years time for people to be able to look back on the time their county won it's first AI and get a real feeling for the game, the day and even the general mood of the county/country at the time. I have the Meath/Dublin trilogy and the Mayo/Dublin semi final on DVD but they basically just show the games, and as great as they were I think that adding additional coverage of what the day was like, the build up to the game, interviews afterwards etc. could allow people to wallow in the whole occasion many years afterwards. After all if that's not your thing you can simply skip onto the match, but I'm sure there would be many a lad who'd slip on the DVD after a few too many over Christmas and could relive the whole day again.
