Hey guys, after watching last night's, "Patriots Path To Perfection", (WHICH WAS AWESOME!!!) it got me to wondering. . . After watching it twice, and having it TiVo'd so my friends and I can watch it again before the game today, I began wondering how they pulled it off. Those NFL Films are absolute masterpieces and not easy to put together; the score (music) alone was amazing. But what really got me thinking was the film - it wasn't just film from NFLN cameras; it was the film from all the networks that covered Patriots games this year. I'm assuming that the NFL has rights to any film shot of all NFL games, and that usually they gather this film at the end of the season and begin making their NFL Film documentaries when the season ends. What I'm wondering is if any of you have knowledge of this process? of how they make these films? of what the agreements are between the networks regarding rights to the film? And in particular, consider this: In week 17, NFLN had exclusive rights to the Patriots/Giants game. Obviously, as it got closer, and the stakes were as high as they got, lawsuits threatening, congressmen clamoring, etc., the NFLN then extended the broadcast to every network shy of the Food Network. What was the behind the scenes of this move? What did NFLN gain from this? Is it possible that by sharing the broadcast, NFLN was able to obtain the other networks' footage and that allowed them to produce the Path To Perfection documentary? Please enlighten! And GO PATS!!!
