The leagues had to merge because from a bidding of players standpoint, the AFL had deeper pockets and with full backing from the Werblin-influenced NBC network, frankly would have blown the NFL out of the water, which is why Hunt was so gracious and shrewd by letting the NFL feel like they won the war by allowing Pete Rozelle to stay commissioner ... Lets face it, true player free agency wasnt about to keep going on when a merger could squash it.
