Immaculate Reception - New Footage!
Catch and End of Game including Referee's Controversial Phone Call

WOW!!! Newly discovered footage of the end of the Immaculate Reception game Franco's miraculous catch and the frenzied aftermath, including referee Fred Swearingen's controversial phone call to NFL Senior Official Art McNally.

It's noteworthy that the announcers who witnessed the play first-hand don't even question that 1) the ball hit Tatum, and 2) Franco caught the ball. These realities are obvious in this broadcast, and other recently discovered footage such as the wide angle "All 22" game film (which the Raiders kept hidden for nearly 50 years) also confirm it.

Thanks to Retro Maven for making this incredible clip available!
