I wonder why people don't seem to remark on the resemblance between the Niners and Chiefs' logos...

Lamar Hunt was "inspired" by the 49ers logo. The Chiefs have certainly made enough adjustments since then (red helmets and white pants for one), but yeah, I get what you're saying.

Part 2 of the Kansas City-San Francisco sports invitational: Giants beat Royals in the 2014 WS. Now we get the Chiefs & Niners in the SB.

This will be one of those Super Bowls where I don't mind whoever wins. I think this is Kansas City's year, which honestly should've been last year, but this time it seems like they can rebound from any deficit they find themselves in. Either way, should be an entertaining matchup.

Given that I hate the Chargers now, I can forgive the 49ers for Super Bowl XXIX so I've got no dog in this fight. Thankfully we avoided a Green Bay/New England Super Bowl, because no one wants that.

I wouldn't really mind the 49ers tying the Steelers and Patriots at 6 therein laying claim to the crown of Most Legitimate Super Bowls Wins, but I'll be pulling for the Chiefs in this one.

For those interested, Vegas Insider's full story.

 

Excerpt:

Quote

There’s a strong possibility that the attractive Super Bowl 54 matchup between the Chiefs and 49ers could break the Nevada Super Bowl handle record of $158.6 million set in 2018 when the Eagles beat the Patriots.

 

The Chiefs are -115 to -120 on the money-line and that’s not going to attract too much action either way as a +150 does for those bettors that simply bet the underdog to win outright each Super Bowl.

The good news for the books is that they don’t have a tough number to babysit for two weeks like a solid 3 or 7. It could run up to -3, but it looks like a number that will attract two-way action and have no need to cross the most important number in the NFL.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook was the first Nevada bet shop to open the Super Bowl number (-1, 51.5) when the 49ers were up 20-0 over the Packers in the second quarter.

SuperBook VP Jay Kornegay said after nearly three hours of having their numbers posted the Chiefs (-1) had 71 percent of the tickets written and their first big bet was $110,000 on the game over 52.5 which pushed them to 53.5.


The only time a Super Bowl closed pick ‘em was in 2015 when the Patriots beat the Seahawks and the last time a Super Bowl closed -1 was in 1982 when the 49ers (-1) beat the Bengals. It’s a pair of unique numbers for the Super Bowl.

Sportsbooks had a terrible Championship Sunday. Favorites won on the Money Line, covered and the Over was hit on both games.

Regardless of who is playing, Liv Tyler better be in attendance.

 I wouldn’t exactly call them dominate. They got bailed out a lot (especially against the lions). 
 

And just like with McCarthy, they choke in the NFC championship. This is the 3rd time it’s happened with them in the past 6 years.
New coach, same result. 


You conveniently left out the part where the Packers had losing records both years since they last played in the NFC Championship, and had become such a dysfunctional dumpster fire that they finished last year with an interim coach. 

Any fan who wouldn't be satisfied with returning to that level with a rookie coach in what was supposed to be a rebuilding year is a lot more entitled than us Packers fans get accused of being.

While the Steelers had Steroids, and the Patriots had video, the 49ers worked in a no Salary Cap era, Jerry Rice put adhesive on his gloves, and Bill Walsh stole Paul Brown's playbook, but used an old school labeler to put "West Coast Offense" on the 3-ring binders.

I'm assuming FOX will go out of their way to not mention anything about Tyreke Hill - whether strangling his pregnant GF or breaking his kid's arm and threatening his mom.

 

I totally get being a fan of the laundry, regardless of who is in it, but in this case, if you are a Chiefs fan and clap or cheer for him whenever he makes a play, you should take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself when exactly you decided you have no moral conscience and values.

No, the Andy Reid and the "redemption" story arch they might use, second only to Patrick Mahomes II and how he exemplifies "America" in being biracial.

 

Hill, McCoy, and especially Frank Clark will likely be mentioned in the first two hours of their 5+ hour pregame show, if at all in-between the Red Carpet and Gronk being Gronk.

Don't forget Frank Clark.

Steroids were neither illegal or against NFL rules during the Steelers 70's run and steroids had been in pro football since the early 60's when the Chargers started handing out Dianabol with other teams following suit, Alex Karras mentions in his biography that the Lions trainers told them they were just vitamins. Serious weightlifting in pro football really didn't start until the mid-70's with some teams having their own programs, some teams like the Steelers had players lifting in their own free time and some teams discouraged weightlifting for various reasons. The 70's Steelers who messed with steroids were the O-Line who were all ripped but smaller weight wise than most lineman of the time, they were mainly a trapping team so they weren't looking to overpower the D-Line. The famed Steel Curtain D-Line never really lifting weights and did most of their training doing farm work and whatnot during the offseason.

 

Also the NFL didn't have a steroid testing policy until 1989 after the 49ers had won three of their five Super Bowls.

Leagues shouldn't have to make rules to ban things that are already banned by local or national laws.  Should the NFL make a rule that any player that shoots up the opposing team with an AR15 is subject to a 4-game suspension?  If steroids were illegal back in those days (and I don't know for sure if they were), then they were breaking rules even if NFL didn't explicitly state it.
