why does it feel like the lombardi trophy is so much more valuable than other championship trophies? only the stanley cup feels remotely as prestigious for some reason

I don't really watch Gridiron football that much but I like that trophy more than the others. It's simple and too the point. As much as I love hockey I fucking hate the way that giant piece of shit looks. OP is still right though. The only two that really matter are stanlee and lombardi

It's one where there is only one ever made and the champ only gets to hold it as long as they are champ. Often the champs are engraved into the trophy like the Stanley Cup. It is the only one ever it is perpetual. It's like the one ring. It rules them all and is owned by none.

Objectively, and I'm not even a hockey fan:

Stanley Cup

You can say WC has a greater audience, that the Super Bowl is the most important American championship, say whatever, but the fact is that there is no other TROPHY that comes close to the Cup.

caring about that fucking dogshit ugly trophy

pic related is a proper trophy, The Scottish Football Association Cup. Commissioned and first awarded in 1874 , the same trophy has been competed for and won every year for 144 years(minus the war years), won by 25 different teams. From the early founders and pioneers of the sport Association Football like Queen's Park, to successful clubs of the 19th century who are now out of business like Renton, Vale of Leven and Third Lanark, right through to modern day giants like Celtic and Rangers; the same trophy has been awarded to every winner since 1874.

It is the oldest silverware in football, and one of the top 10 oldest in the entire sporting world.

Americans don't know FUCKING SHIT about history or tradition

American sports trophies have prestige since they are the ONLY high honor a team can earn in their respective sports.

Povertyball has multiple champions and trophies a team can win which completely waters down the prestige of their award trophies.

money.

the best Scottish teams were as good as the best English teams right up until the early 90s. then globalization and our small population caught up with us. tv money flooded into the big European leagues, and the small countries couldn't compete with them anymore.

Scottish league was a top 5 league right through the 60s, 70s, 80s. Celtic were the first club in the UK to win the Champions League. Aberdeen under Sir Alex beat Real Madrid to win the Cup Winners Cup in the 80s. Rangers won European trophies. Dundee, Dundee Utd, Rangers and Celtic all reached the semis of the Champions League

in those days clubs money was generated pretty much 100% just from the fans buying tickets. nowadays its all from TV money and sponsorship. And Scotland's money from that is an absolute drop in the ocean compared to England, and the
rest of Europe.

here's a video of Dunde United being cheated out of Champions League final by Roma in 1984

So it's the oldest thing to have "league" in its name (despite not being a league because it has a playoff format)?

But it's neither the oldest playoff format to award a championship

Nor it's the oldest league, as in a group of clubs coming together to play a championship every year

Nor it's the oldest league format championship

There's virtually no definition under which it's the oldest league

So your definition of league is "a bunch of teams coming together every year to play for a championship", which is the standard definition in dictionaries, which makes The Football Association the oldest league in the world regardless of it not being called a league, gotcha

I think the stanley cup is looked at with such prestige because it is not only the most difficult to get (you have to win 16 games against 4 different teams, and play a possible 28), but the history and stories attached to it are incredible. Also, when you touch the cup you know that some of the greatest to ever play the game have touched that same cup. Not using the same trophy year after year is lame af. You get your one summer with the cup, and then you have to pass it onto the next team, or fight to get it back.

because the whole thing that started this was some brit making the tired claim that Americans have no history or tradition, when that isnt the case, especially regarding sports compared to others. Someone pointed out that the oldest continually running sports league in the world was American to illustrate what a shit statement that was, and yuros and sudacas changed the subject about autistically arguing about what a league constitutes and who's was around by a few years more 150 years ago, which completely missed the point of what the person was trying to point out refuting the claim "Americans have no tradition or understanding of history"
