    Greatest radio call ever!!!

      The greatest call by a sportscaster ever! Just makes me smile to hear it again, and I remember seeing the game 39 years ago.

        Most ridiculous non calls i've not once but twice the Raiders throw the ball forward and the refs don't see it. Funny how the Raiders fans never mention this or the 76 play off game vs the Pats when they a crying about the Tuck rule call on them

          The referee was behind, so he couldn't see and had to rule it a fumble. The quarterback did admit to it being voluntary in 2001 or so, but we can't exactly do anything about it fifty years after the fact

        Lol you don't see Chargers fans whining about this play like the Las Vegas Raiders fans do about the Tuck Rule game smh

        • billny33

          That's because this was regular season. And if I'm not mistaken, very early in the season too. The Tuck Rule game very possibly denied the Raiders a spot in the Super Bowl or a championship. I don't blame Raiders fans for being that pissed off not one bit.

          Why didn't Dave Casper show any emotion when he scored?

          • Greg Presley
            Greg Presley  9 months back

            ...Because Casper knew that Kenny Stabler "CHEATED", and he felt shame for contributing to a false win. If you have a soul, you wouldn't be happy either.

            Well he was probably also nicknamed "The Ghost" because of Casper the Friendly Ghost, but I see your point.

          • BravesAvsFan
            BravesAvsFan  3 years back

            That's probably one of the reasons why Dave Casper was nicknamed "The Ghost," lol! And yes, it certainly did work for him, as he's in the Hall of Fame. Also, personally, I'm not sure I would celebrate on a play like this, either, considering how weird and flukey it really was. I would probably be looking around asking myself if this really happened.

          • billny33
            billny33  3 years back

            Wow. I can't fathom...

            Not even taking into consideration the celebration culture of modern sports. But if, according to Herm Edwards, "you play to win the game" and winning doesn't make you excited, then what are you playing for?

            I mean I guess it worked for him, one of the all time great Raiders. I could just never relate to someone who wouldn't go nuts if he scored the winning touchdown on a weird flukey fumble recovery with no time left.

          • Guillermo Sanchez
            Guillermo Sanchez  3 years back

            Because that's the way he is. He scored a touchdown in Superbowl XI and the winning touchdowns in several playoff games and never showed any emotion.

        • Brandon Bate
          Brandon Bate  4 years back

          Great commentary. This wouldn't stand if it happened in a game now though. At least I don't think it would

          • BravesAvsFan
            BravesAvsFan  3 years back

            Yes, this play is the reason for the rule change and wouldn't be legal these days. And the way you describe the rule, I'm not sure if you're wrong or not, therefore, I won't correct you.

          • billny33
            billny33  3 years back

            If I recall, the rule is that (gotta love how complicated NFL rules can get) even in the last 2 mins of a half, the ball can be recovered by another offensive player but it would be moved back to the spot it was fumbled if it had been fumbled forwards. And it can't be advanced once it's recovered. Otherwise, any such fumble would be too easy for the defense to recover if other players knew they weren't even allowed to pounce on it. Correct me if I'm wrong about any of this.

            But yeah, the Stabler/Biletnikoff/Casper connection as shown here would not be legal and I believe it's because of this play that they introduced the rule.

          • BravesAvsFan
            BravesAvsFan  3 years back

            You're right, it wouldn't stand now. After that season ended, the NFL changed the rule so that on fourth down or within the last 2 minutes of a half, whenever a fumble occurs by the offense, it can only be recovered by either the player who fumbled or a defender.

          Did you see how the kickers use to wind up and kick filed goals. Looks like a toe punt to me.

          • BravesAvsFan
            BravesAvsFan  3 years back

            Back in the old days, the straight-ahead style of kicking was the norm. The soccer-style kick that you see nowadays was introduced by one player during the sixties, but took some time to catch on. Now, everybody kicks soccer-style it seems.

          This would either be an incomplete pass or the ball would be downed where the initial fumble was in todays game (most likely called incomplete

                            that's not how he meant it. when raiders had madden they were actually very good. but it's okay at least raiders have sb rings. could be worse. I could be a panther, eagle, or charger fan with 0 sbs.. I couldn't imagine that kind of drought.
