a wild one (answered)

Postby latraffic » Thu Oct 26, 2006 1:02 pm

Since I hate answering multi-part questions, I think I'll seek revenge by asking one:

1. The NFL was the first league to ever use the wild-card format. What year did it initiate it?

2. The media began referring to the qualifying teams as "wild cards" but it was officially called what in the beginning? (Two possible answers)


At least I didn't make you do any math! :-B
Thank God for Football Season.

1. The NFL was the first league to ever use the wild-card format. What year did it initiate it?

1970 when the league realinged into two conferences of three divisions each.

2. The media began referring to the qualifying teams as "wild cards" but it was officially called what in the beginning? (Two possible answers)

"Best Second-Place Team" (or sometimes simply as the "Fourth Qualifier")
