Agree with pretty much all of this with one addition, marketing of the NFL and tv exposure skyrocketed in the mid to late 90s. Probably one of the most brilliant strategies that I've seen in a long time.

I'll go a step further too. As much parity as there is the NHL, that which is in the NFL is even more abundant. Teams struggling to make the playoffs in the NFL don't suprise me at all when they come close to going on deep post season runs. The league is more balanced as a whole in the NFL.
