They showed footage from the 1974 Steelers @ Raiders AFCCG. Simply amazing how many cheap shots the Raiders took at Swanny. I really can't believe they got away with all that.

players were cheap back then. once they became milllionaires the league started thinking of them as something of value......

I know, but they intentionally targeted Swanny in that game. If you get the chance to see it you'll know what I mean.

In the piece Swanny himself said he was told they were planning on coming after him like that and he said he was totally unprepared for it.

I have all these on video and the first time I saw it I thought the same thing D!! Unbelievable how much the game has changed over the last 30 years!!! That stuff would never go on today! Although the Pats* have been pretty cheap over the last few years!
