NFL replaces Falcons with Crimson Tide, grants every Alabaman's wish

Mike Costa

Chattanooga newspaper puts Alabama in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

As Chattanooga television reporter Mike Costa tweeted this morning, the Chattanooga Times Free Press printed that Alabama, and not Atlanta, is facing San Francisco in Sunday's NFC Championship Game:

In accidentally putting the Crimson Tide in the NFC Championship, the Times Free Press managed to anger fans of both Atlanta and Alabama. Falcons fans are understandably angry at being compared to a college team on the eve of the franchise's first NFC Championship appearance since 2005, especially given the disrespect shown to their team by Vegas oddsmakers and the gambling public.

Alabama fans, on the other hand, are irate that the Times Free Press listed the Crimson Tide as 6-11 in the playoffs and 0-1 in the Super Bowl. Alabama has long claimed 23 Super Bowl wins, including the 1925, 1926, 1930, 1934, and 1941 Super Bowls. Those championships have long been disputed by other authorities, primarily because the Super Bowl was not played until 1967.
