well ofcourse they were planning it before the Jets won. Jets drafted Namath in 1965. The NFL was losing college prospects left and right. The Jets beating the Colts was the final nail basically because the Packers had won the 2 previous championship games so the NFL still had a hand up at that time. Then the Jets just slammed the nail in and football fans were already turning towards the AFL because it was more exciting to watch and they had some big names playing. So if you feel it ain`t "remotely true", feel that way. I see it differently.
