The alphabetical thing is kind of annoying, but I understand why you had to do it.
Dec 21st, 2009 at 13:19 GMT
I liked it. It would be a touch harder if you reduced the time.
Dec 21st, 2009 at 13:42 GMT
Aaaaah, this brings back memories. Of how geographically inaccurate the NFL used to be! Like the Cardinals being considered East, while the Falcons, Panthers and Saints are somehow West. Also, the Jaguars and Bucs being considered Central even though they both reside on the East Coast. Good times.

The alphabetical nature is certainly unfortunate, but yeah I can't really think of another way to make this quiz using the Sporcle interface. Basically though, once you get a point of reference in a division it isn't a big deal. A quiz worth making even with the restraints.

the title is misleading, should be can you name the NFL teams based on their alignment prior to 2002

Fun quiz kudos

I typed San Francisco in the "St Louis" slot and it lit up St Louis. Might wanna fix that
Dec 21st, 2009 at 17:22 GMT
@DanielRu: The reason I did that was because if you consider St Louis as Saint Louis, the alphabetical order of St Louis and San Francisco changes, so I thought the only reasonable thing to do was to accept both answers in either slot. Sorry about the alphabetical order. I too agree it is annoying, but it was the best way I could think of to prevent just guessing every team. How's the time? Too much or just right?
Dec 21st, 2009 at 18:44 GMT
For St Louis/San Francisco-pick one or the other. Also, change the clue to read alphabetical order by team name, not by city/state (not all teams have a city or state listed--such as Tampa Bay)

i never knew how geographically inept the NFL used to be. good quiz
Dec 21st, 2009 at 21:14 GMT
great quiz! things brings back memories when the niners used to run the nfc west!
Dec 22nd, 2009 at 01:30 GMT
the nfc west had 3 teams east of the mississippi and 4 east of the rockies
Dec 22nd, 2009 at 01:32 GMT
the NFL is still pretty geographically challenged. Dallas isn't east of anything.
Dec 22nd, 2009 at 03:20 GMT
@bwood - you're wrong. He did it correctly.
Dec 22nd, 2009 at 03:58 GMT
quiz is solid, i think the time should be cut down a bit, but good quiz
Dec 22nd, 2009 at 04:36 GMT
Thank god for the Houston Texans, straightened everybody out lol. I always thought the Colts should have been the ones to stay in the East and the Dolphins go to the South, Indiana isn't really South to me. Imagine Colts and Pats twice a year this decade??
Dec 22nd, 2009 at 04:57 GMT
Colts and Pats would have certainly been nice, but I am also glad the Miami-NYJ rivalry was maintained. Neither had finished below .500 since 1996. Of course, if the NFL had known what they know now, they would have ditched it in a second for Colts-Pats.
Dec 22nd, 2009 at 15:10 GMT
vince: since at the time of the alignment the NFC East was the power conference they didn't what to mess with it - geography be damned (nobody cared about the cards)
Jul 25th, 2010 at 23:47 GMT
While a Colts-Pats divisional rivalry would have been awesome, I'm more than fine with the three playoff matchups and the many regular season classics. Keeping them in the same division puts some of that history at risk.
