    The Premise: What if the NFL and AFL continued to host 'Super Bowls' between one another but had NEVER merged in 1970-ish?

  • #2
    Would they be able to trade players? Would they participate in the same draft? would they have the same free agency?

          Al Davis would still be the commissioner of the AFL, the Raiders would have 15+ Super Bowl trophies, Ryan Leaf would be padding his resume on the way to a Hall of Fame career in the middle of a perfect season and Peyton Manning would be a Wal-Mart greeter.

          Oldie but a goodie.

            TRADES: Between NFL and AFL teams? No. Seeing as how these are competing leagues, there's no way they'd voluntarily do that.

            DRAFT: The drafting proces would go much as it did in the 60's; both league would have their own drafts, then their respective teams would most likely try to outbid the other for the picks they selected. For exhample, a player picked #1 overall in both the NFL and AFL could choose which contract to sign.

            FREE AGENCY: Odds are, the fierce competition for Blue Chip athletes would force an earlier birth of Free Agency in a bid to dry up the other's well. In fact, I would wager the AFL would've been the first to embrace this move as a means to fight the NFL into the 70's or even 80's.

                    The Browns would be in the NFL instead of the AFC. :O
