    Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes V (Do Not Post Current Politics Here)

    Spoilerdog is an early internet meme currently on display in the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Made by an unknown American artist, the series of at least 17 image macros were created and stored on a laptop PC in either the late 2010’s or early 2020’s before the hardware was discarded into a...

    AHC: U.S. football “Superbowl” never really takes off.

    The AFL was a reaction against the NFL not wanting to expand. Guys like Lamar Hunt and Ralph Wilson wanted majority stakes in NFL teams but couldn't find selling teams and the NFL itself wasn't willing to grant them expansion teams, so they created their own league that would compete against the...

    AHC: U.S. football “Superbowl” never really takes off.

    Saying "taking off" implies that the first Super Bowl occurs, but then fails for some reason. This is unavoidable by the time the Super Bowl was established, the AFL-NFL merger was already in place by 1966 and the best teams of each leagues were roughly equal in strength by this time, and the...

    I mean, judging from how Marino played against the 85 Bears OTL, they might have a better chance than they would against the 49ers.

    The Steelers have always been at the very least a decent team since the merger. They've never gone more than 4 years between playoff wins and have only finished with less than 6 wins once since 1970. There's a reason that Chuck Noll lasted into the 90's. Honestly you probably don't have very...

    Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes V (Do Not Post Current Politics Here)

    Somebody in another thread wanted a wikipedia infobox of current Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz as an NFL player, so I might as well post it here too. Matthew Louis Gaetz II is a former professional american football tight end in the National Football League (NFL) who played for...

    Depends on what you mean by "success". A young Leinart as QB might still not be as good as a veteran Kurt Warner, and they might not have reached the Super Bowl as a result. Even if Leinart ends up being Eli or Philip Rivers level, I don't know if the Cardinals can push past the NFC Championship...

    I have way, way too many projects on the docket that I'll never finish.

    This is my "Barry Sanders on the Packers" take. The rational is that he's able to play longer since Brett Favre takes a bit off the load, and the Packers are really fucking good as a result. Looking back on it (Geez I made this five years ago) the personal numbers are probably too high but whatever.

    The fact that these players were known to be considering the AFL hurt their draft stock, so it's very likely that without the AFL the players would go higher than they did in the NFL Draft OTL. Another thing to consider is that the success of the Lions may not allow them to draft the same...

    Canton is an interesting choice to try and make the Packers model work. The Bulldogs were sold and moved to Cleveland in 1924, but the popularity wasn't there and the team folded a couple years later, and while Canton got another team, it failed to escape the league culling teams in 1927. I...

    Sports What Ifs.

    The Packers ownership model developed from a pretty unique circumstance. Green Bay joined what would now be called the NFL in 1921, and formed an immediate rivalry with the Bears (then called the Staleys). Despite being new, the Packers were among the best teams in the league and held a pretty...

    If LT is taking Swilling's spot in the Dome Patrol then they might be better for a longer stretch of time, but by the time we see the prime of Boomer and the other three linebackers, Swilling is arguably better than a declining Taylor. Still that period from 1986-89 they might be the best team...
