The NFL chamionship was the true championship of pro football.

    That's why the AFL champions don't compare to SBs either. Your not very bright are you? I can hate on the USFL for not merging cause guess where most of the players from those leagues go? The NFL.

    Doug Flutie, Mourice Carthon, Hershel Walker and Bart Oates. And that was just the Generals. Lets not forget Steve Young and Jim Kelly.

    My head is spinning from all your knowledge.

A dark place for dark souls......and I'm afraid for you.
    Wrong again. Every champion in every league matters if its to that league alone. But when compared to others( like old ones to SBs) then the clearly greater league means more. The NFL was not greater than the AFL just cause you think it had better talent.

    Yes, they eventally went to the NFL, and many are HOFers. So, during the years that they were in the USFL they were legitimate NFL talent, which weakened the NFL during those years. Just because they didn't merge doesn't mean a thing.... what about a legitimate SB champion in those years?

    Zim...I realized a few minutes ago that this guy is that poster with all the different screen names.
    He's basically a Morehead stalker named Dark Saint and ElidaManing,
    I forgot that this was his other handle.
    We've been duped by a moron. I'm man enough to admit it.

    In other words, we are wasting our time.

    Your not talking about. You're talking about them permanently being in the USFL. The AFL wasn't like that. People didn't move onto the NFL after being in the AFL like they do with the USFL. They stayed in the AFL. The AFL was bigger than any of the minor leagues now. There wasn't 1 universal pro football league. If anything there was 2. Both of which were bigger than the USFL.
