Nice idea but you probably should list the teams individually, so for the NFL take the teams with 8, 7, 6, 6, 5, 5, 5, and 5 appearances, for the World Series take the teams with 40, 18, 17, 17 and 14 appearances, etc. Right now your quiz contains 12 of the 32 NFL teams, which is a huge proportion of the league, especially when you consider that the most recent expansion teams can easily be discounted.
Dec 8th, 2009 at 04:54 GMT
Agree with the point above. Also, you should probably accept A's or As for the Athletics. Much like Knickerbockers, nobody uses the full nickname anymore.
Dec 8th, 2009 at 06:31 GMT
Along the same lines, putting 'Sixers' for 76ers would be appreciated - they're one in the same.

There were finals in the NFL before the Super Bowl.

Got all 20!!! haha niccceeee quiz bro

could lop off a minute or two, especially given the high percentages answered. might be tricky to edit the nfl section to include nfl championships, because then you'll also have to include afl championships, and then some picky people'll whine about you not including things like the aafl (niners and browns fans especially...), so you're better off sticking with the super bowl only.

Listing the teams individually would be a great improvement.

Surprised to see the Chicago Bulls not on here.

I get very sick of pre-Super Bowl NFL championships not being included in these quizzes. And I don't think you necessarily need to include the AFL or AAFC, any more than you need to include the WHA or ABA.
Dec 8th, 2009 at 17:22 GMT
@MrBRW - while I agree it should be accepted, that's a bad example. I for one usually say Athletics and I'm not the only one. NOBODY says Knickerbockers, even in news articles or on the team website; many people still say Athletics.
Dec 8th, 2009 at 17:31 GMT
Agree with the pre-Super Bowl argument. I dont understand why those championships are not included. There is no valid reason to exclude them.
Dec 8th, 2009 at 18:57 GMT
Not really any surprises for the NHL teams, is there?
Dec 8th, 2009 at 19:53 GMT
Disagree with accepting "A's". "Athletics" is the more common name and by accepting "A's", guessing any word beginning with As- (like Astros) will accidentally give you that answer.
Dec 8th, 2009 at 20:37 GMT
Agreed with the listing things individually comment. It kind of takes the fund out of it to have to only guess one out of three or four teams.

Yankees have won 27 world series and 40 american league pennants
Dec 8th, 2009 at 20:58 GMT
@elgato10x If you included the pre-super bowl championships, you have to deal with the various leagues pre-merger. The quiz clearly states at the top "Super Bowl" so there shouldn't be confusion. I agree with the suggestions above. The teams should be listed individually.
Dec 8th, 2009 at 21:08 GMT
The reason i did not list the individual teams was because if i did it would create a very skewed number of teams in certain areas for each sport. After looking at the list of teams, it would be very difficult to include for example 8-10 individual teams for each sport. If I gave each team its own line the quiz would look really weird.
Dec 8th, 2009 at 22:20 GMT
You need to accept "sixers" for 76ers.
Dec 9th, 2009 at 00:32 GMT
@lotsoffolks - The quizmaker specifies Super Bowls. I often rail against quizzes where someone says "titles by state, city, etc" but exclude Super Bowls. However, it is specified in this instance. Notice he also says "World Series." Before the World Series, the NL champion was the de facto baseball champion, and noone is holding a rally to included those.

its funny that hockey was the only one l got all the answers right, and that is the sport l have the least knowledge of.. great quiz!
Dec 9th, 2009 at 02:51 GMT
individual listing would make this good quiz a great quiz
Dec 9th, 2009 at 03:52 GMT
accept habs for montreal canadiens
Dec 11th, 2009 at 00:22 GMT
Why is there such a huge dropoff after the A's?
Dec 11th, 2009 at 03:16 GMT
Because prior to expansion, baseball was generally dominated by a few teams. Baseball was more competitive in the 80's and 90's than any other time in history, but newer teams haven't been around as long to rack up as many appearances.
Dec 15th, 2009 at 02:36 GMT
The Super Bowl is NOT the equivalent of the NBA Finals, World Series, or Stanley Cup finals. THOSE include all the recognized championships of their respective leagues. If you have not one one of those series, you have not won a title in the NBA, MLB, or NHL. This is not the case in the NFL. This quiz is in error.
Dec 15th, 2009 at 02:39 GMT
Mfel, why would you have to do that? There has been one continuous entity called the National Football League. This league awarded many championships prior to the Super Bowl (also, the Super Bowl happened a couple times pre-merger, which further messes up your point). The NFL still recognizes all pre-SB championships. The league itself considers them equal to post-SB championships. What about this is so difficult to understand?
Dec 15th, 2009 at 02:42 GMT
Also, btroup, your point is invalid, because MLB itself only recognizes World Series championships as being actual championships - winning the AL or NL is winning 'the pennant', and that's it, and that's what the league itself has said for almost a century now. It's not the same as the NFL case at all. The leagues rule on their own championships and what counts as what.
