.After its inception in 1920, the NFL fended off several rival leagues before the AFL began play in 1960. The intense competitive war for players and fans led to serious merger talks between the two leagues in 1966. According to NFL Films President Steve Sabol, then NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle wanted to call the game "The Big One".[6] During the discussions to iron out the details, one of the AFL's founders and Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt had jokingly referred to the proposed inter league championship as the "Super Bowl". [7] Lamar Hunt, who died in December 2006, coined the term Super Bowl in the late 1960s after watching his kids play with a Super Ball, the bouncy creation of iconic toy manufacturer Wham-O. The small, round ball is now on display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.^ The Super Bowl was created as part of the merger agreement between the National Football League (NFL) and its rival, the American Football League (AFL).

The name was consistent with postseason college football games which had long been known as "bowl games." Hunt only meant his suggested name to be a stopgap until a better one could be found; nevertheless, the name "Super Bowl" became permanent. Contrary to popular belief and NFL promotion, however, there was no Super Bowl prior to what is now called "Super Bowl IV". Tickets for the games played in 1967, 1968, and 1969 were printed with "World Championship Game"[8]
.After the NFL's Green Bay Packers convincingly won the first two Super Bowls, some team owners feared for the future of the merger.^ Pre-Super Bowl NFL champions .

NFL trademark issues

.The NFL is vigilant on stopping what it says is unauthorized commercial use of its trademarked terms "NFL," "Super Bowl," or "Super Sunday"; as a result, many events and promotions tied to the game but not sanctioned by the NFL are forced to refer to it with colloquialisms such as "The Big Game," or other generic descriptions.^ Commercials Super Bowl History Starting out as the AFL-NFL Championship game and growing into the Super Bowl we know as the leagues merged to form the National Football League, otherwise known as the NFL.

.The NFL claims that the use of the phrase "Super Bowl" implies an NFL affiliation, and on this basis the league asserts broad rights to restrict how the game may be shown publicly; for example, the league says Super Bowl showings are prohibited in churches or at other events that "promote a message"; and venues that do not regularly show sporting events cannot show the Super Bowl on any television screen larger than 55 inches.^ Sports Book Ratings for the 2009 Super Bowl .

[34] Some critics say the NFL is exaggerating its ownership rights by stating that "any use is prohibited", as this contradicts the broad doctrine of fair use in the United States.[34]
In 2008, legislation was proposed by Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) "to provide an exemption from exclusive rights in copyright for certain nonprofit organizations to display live football games, and "for other purposes."[35]
In 2006, the NFL made an attempt to trademark "The Big Game" as well. .However, it withdrew the application in 2007 due to growing commercial opposition to the move, mostly from fans of both Stanford and Cal who compete in The Big Game which concludes their Pac-10 season.^ Despite a budget of $12.49, the commercial rivals others aired during the big game.
