The NFL chamionship was the true championship of pro football.

The NFL of old wasn't the strongest of the leagues because no matter what it was still one league. The NFL of now is the strongest because it has multiple leagues( doesn't matter what leagues they are or what talent they had). Unless the WFL at one point merged with another league, the NFL now is the one that matters when compared to the old leagues.
    Were the Stanley Cups of the late 70's and 80's illegitimate since they did merge with the NHL?
    I think the Islanders might be disappointed.

    Was the USFL composed of multiple relevant leagues that merged. No. Therefore it doesn't compare.

    Thank you, Morehead, I mean the USFL and mis-named it the WFL.
    Of course I should have known the WFL didn't count, because it was in Europe.
    He still hasn't answered whether or not the SB champs were truly champs during those USFL days.

    The Stanley cup was always the Stanley cup. The championship for pro football has always changed.

    Neither did the AFL teams compare for their first 7 years, but you discount that. You CANNOT discount the USFL simply because they didn't merge. They had doazens of legitimate NFL quality players. Merging or not merging is often a function of the money involved and the strength of fan following to confirm legitimacy.

    Hey dumbass. Way to show me you can't read. I don't recall the USFL ever merging with other relevant leagues?

    Lets review your position.

    A championship is only relevant when......

    There is not a competing league being played at the same time........ with the following conditions......

    1. It exists
    2. It ultimately was merged into league in question
    3. That league was...(give me a moment).....formed from multiple other leagues that were legitimate.

    I think you are going down a road that leads to a very dark place. A dark place for dark souls......and I'm afraid for you.
