More trivia:

If Jack Murphy ("Qualcomm") Stadium in San Diego is demolished, it will be the seventh time that a stadium has been demolished after hosting one or more Super Bowls.

Try to guess before Googling.

My initial reaction was nobody but i guess they played 4 super bowls before the merger.

So the answer is the Jets and the Chiefs. Both won the AFL and Super Bowls before the merger and neither have been back to a Super Bowl ever since.

Yep...

But no one ever correctly answered who has won an NFL title but never won a Super Bowl.

So are you talking just during the Super Bowl era? I looked up both of my first two thoughts and they both won NFL titles and neither has won the Super Bowl. If the question was only regarding those four years, the Minnesota Vikings won the 'NFL' but lost Super Bowl 4, and have never won a Super Bowl since then. They also never won a championship before the Super Bowl era, so its kinda semantics to say they've won a NFL title but not a Super Bowl, as they essentially won the NFC title.

RE: Trivia
They may have essentially won the NFC title but the reality is they are credited with an NFL title yet not a Super Bowl title. It is not semantics because they were different leagues back then (the NFL was clearly superior) and for a trivia question, it left a fun little loophole.

RE: Trivia
I meant semantics more based on the starting date, most people would assume pre-Super Bowl era if counting NFL titles without winning a Super Bowl. The Eagles won the NFL in 1960, just a couple years before the Super Bowl started, and have never won a Super Bowl.

I do agree it is an interesting bit of trivia though.
