Minneapolis was a big market?

Miami was a big market?

Pittsburgh was a big market?

Just asking because teams from these cities were in the playoffs and Super Bowl quite often in the late '60s and early '70s. In fact a team from New York appeared in only one of the first 20 Super Bowls, and that was the Jets in Super Bowl III.

A team from Los Angeles appeared in just two of the first 20 Super Bowls and a team from Chicago in just one.

The Giants and Jets were down right awful in many of those years, yet the NFL grew and grew. How did they manage that without championship teams in "big markets"?

I think folks that live in these areas have an over developed sense of self-importance and entitlement.
