Some fat piece of shit on Rome is Burning has a strange take on history. Admittedly, it's on Rome is Burning, so you can pretty much expect 1.) The guy to be a fat piece of shit and 2.) whatever he says will be mind-bogglingly wrong.
"I think that the Jets winning in Super Bowl III is a bigger upset than the Giants over the Patriots, because the Jets' were bigger underdogs...."
So far so good...
"and their win pretty much CAUSED the merger." (His emphasis, not mine.)
Kind of odd since the AFL-NFL merger was announced in 1966, and Super Bowl III was played in 1969.
