Question?[edit]

Who coached oakland?—Preceding unsigned comment added by 136.142.145.108 (talkcontribs) John Rauch


Correction? The article says "Super Bowl II was the second AFL-NFL World Championship Game in professional American football, later to be known as the Super Bowl." However, the article at http://www.packersnews.com/includes/newspaper/assets/pdfs/2008/HistoryPage010167.pdf indicates that the Green Bay Press-Gazette (or its predecessor paper) called Super Bowl 1 the Super Bowl two weeks before it was played.

I'd heard this often enough before that I had always accepted it as true until running across this article at the Press-Gazette. Apparently the game was known as the Super Bowl from the getgo.

I'm kind of hammered now so I won't edit the article, but it should be fixed.

The game was unofficially known as the Super Bowl right from the beginning - ads for NBC, especially, started using the "Super Sunday" phrase with the first game. But it wasn't OFFICIALLY called such - the programs, tickets and press releases called it the "World Championship Game," in large part because Pete Rozelle thought it sounded silly to say "Super Bowl." But it was clear the public supported the name and the league gave in. DrBear (talk) 16:52, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
