Is 4 SB titles more impressive than 13 WC titles to the general public?

    I have been holding this question in all week (very superstitious person). Do you think the 4th Super Bowl title is more impressive to the non-Packer fan out there, or does the 13 World Championship titles still hold more of an impact.

    Honestly, I think the 4th SB title means more to non-Packer fans. 12 and now 13 are often looked at as, yeah but..it was before the merger, there were less teams, it was generations ago, and it wasn't called teh sUpER BOwL.

    Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of the 13 time World Champion Green Bay Packers (so fun to type, you should try it), but I think I have a point. Feel free to correct away.

    To young people the SB means more, but to older people and educated people who enjoy NFL history the 13 means more. imo

    Since 13>4 I would think the 13 will sound awesome to anyone.

    Of course the non-Packers fans will argue about how 9 of them don't matter. But that's they're problem.
    The NFL recognizes all the champ. wins and that's all that really matters.

    I'm 18 but keep pointing out that while the Steelers have the most Superbowl wins, the Packers have the most championship wins overall in NFL history.

    From an outsiders perspective, I look at it two ways. For the modern state of a franchise I look at Super Bowls (Saints were founded the first Super Bowl, I know a bit hommerish but anyway) and I include the 13 championships when I look at the whole history of the Packers. Shows domminance throught te history of the team.
    Just my 2 cents

    that list is a crock of ****. Its worth less because there were less teams? do team get penalized for not winning anything when it was easy? **** like that pisses me off. Steelers fans just trying to make excuses.

    If you accept that the NFL represents excellence in professional football, then you accept that every NFL Championship is equally important, regardless of the year it is won. Why the league allows talk about the "Super Bowl" era is beyond me. It's a totally artificial, ignorant take on the NFL and its history.

    After we've won our 16th Championship it will be a moot point I guess.

    The Definitive Championship List - CBSSports.com

    This list and the analysis behind it makes as much sense as saying Revolutionary War veterans are less important than Gulf War veterans because of the "quality of competition". Absolutely ridiculous.

    I have a friend who is a Cowboys fan and he always uses "Five Super Bowls..." and "Our stadium is worth more than your franchise" etc. I like the NFL Championships, but I do not use them. I think if we go by Super Bowls, then we should use it. We NOW HAVE FOUR, so lets just use that and keep motivated to get to #7 in the new RODGERS ERA!

    Why not just say the Packers got one super bowl in the millennium era because there are 32 teams now. Packers got all 13 Championships through their history, a great accomplishment for an organization. What I hate is that Steelers are one of the older teams in the league and if they would of won one Championship back then the whole SB argument would be null and void.

    You know, we have 13 now but slamming the guys who played real football in the old days to elevate the modern players is sort of like saying the guys who fought in Vietnam were better than the WWII combat Vets.

    WWII doesn't count because Alaska and Hawaii were not states yet, and it was pre-merger. :snack:
