Changes in the sports postseason over the years

The big event last week was the NFL’s Super Bowl. The hype and attention almost make this a national holiday. Even if you are not a football fan it is difficult to enter any conversation that does not refer to the Super Bowl. I remember having big get together parties to watch the game. I started thinking how championships have changed over the years and how the number of teams keeps increasing. The other part of a championship game is it seems there is only one game. When the NFL had two teams play for a championship there was a championship game followed by a consolation game played by the losing teams. This was before there was an NFL and AFL Super Bowl that Vince Lombardi made his famous “Winning is Everything,” comment and referred to that consolation game. What ever happened to athletic contests that played for 3rd and 4th place? The big change came when the AFL League was formed and became popular enough to challenge the prestigious NFL teams. Green Bay played in the first NFL-AFL championship game and the comment from Lombardi was that the upstart AFL teams were not as good as some lesser NFL teams. And until Joe Namath and the Jets came along and beat the Baltimore Colts for the championship it held true. Now it is an even match up for the most part.
