Full Version: I need help with missing games for the site!

Howdy, folks. 

I need help with games for the site. We've FINALLY pretty much caught up with reloading all of our old games. I'm still missing quite a bit, though. In particular, I'd like to complete the 2007 season. 

"Crash" has agreed to convert and provide that season, but he moved back to Pittsburgh a while back and all of his games are still on mothballs. He does a really good job converting them, so it's worth waiting for. But if someone else has top-notch quality versions of those 2007 games (or ANY missing games), we would truly appreciate the help. 

We've had many great contributors over the last few years. 27 different people have stepped up to provide missing or upgraded games. It's VERY much appreciated!

We have a few games from 2009 and 2010 that we haven't posted yet. This is due to sub-standard quality. In this day and age, we should be able to find high quality versions of these games. Unfortunately, video contributions to the site have really slowed down lately and a lot of what pops up on YouTube is poor quality. Better than nothing perhaps, but past experience tells me that if we post a poor-quality version of a video, it reduces the likelihood of someone providing a high quality version.

Anyway... we need help. If you can contribute, we (and Steeler fans everywhere) would appreciate it!  Thumbsup
Love to help, but you got all of what I had.
At this stage, I'm looking to build the games from 2007 and 2009-2016. I already have all of 2017, thanks to Crash.

Of course, I'll continue to search for missing classic games and upgrades. But now, I want to catalog the last 10 years.
Tim there was a game a few years ago at Heinz field that was played in an absolute downpour. There was a punt that hit the field nose down and stuck in the turf in that position. Do you happen to know which game that was? I think the steeers won by a field goal. Thanks

Is that the game Spencer destroyed his knee?

Not sure.

Getting ready to start adding more games as I get them. I spent the last few quarantined evenings revamping the site game menu in preparation for 2011-2018. Also, finally split out the combined seasons ('81-'82, '83-'84, etc., etc.) since we have a lot more of those games now and added stats, schedules and rosters to them. 

Hopefully, we'll get some momentum with high quality game contributions from the last decade soon.  Pi_clover Thumbsup
I am interested in the Steelers-Browns game -season ended - 1983. The Steelers lost.
Tim, I have a large collection in the garage but they're still in VHS format, are you looking for games that have already been converted to digital media or will you take the VHS copies?

I can convert VHS, EC. Thumbsup Most of the videos on the site were converted from my old VHS tapes.
Ok, ill work on getting a list of them for you.
These things are my babies and letting them go will really hurt but what I do know is that you've got yourself the best Steeler fan-site that I've ever seen and your game catalog is second to none, I'd love to contribute to it.
I'll get back to you with that list man.

Thanks, EC! Very much appreciated!  Thumbsup
