Super Bowl IV

Super Bowl IV, the fourth and final AFL–NFL World Championship Game in professional American football, was played on January 11, 1970, at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana. The American Football League champion Kansas City Chiefs defeated the National Football League champion Minnesota Vikings by the score of 23–7; this victory by the AFL squared the Super Bowl series with the NFL at two games apiece as the two leagues merged into one after the game. Despite the AFL's New York Jets winning the previous season's Super Bowl, many sports writers and fans thought it was a fluke and continued to believe that the NFL was still superior to the AFL, thus expected the Vikings to defeat the Chiefs. Minnesota posted a 12–2 record in 1969 defeated the Los Angeles Rams 23–20 for the Western Conference title, the Cleveland Browns 27–7 in the NFL Championship Game; the Chiefs, who appeared in the first Super Bowl, finished the regular season at 11–3. Under wet conditions, the Chiefs defense dominated Super Bowl IV by limiting the Minnesota offense to only 67 rushing yards, forcing three interceptions, recovering two fumbles.

Kansas City's Len Dawson became the fourth consecutive winning quarterback to be named Super Bowl MVP. He completed 12 of 17 passes with one interception. Dawson recorded three rushing attempts for 11 yards. Super Bowl IV is notable for NFL Films miking up the Chiefs' Hank Stram during the game, the first time that a head coach had worn a microphone during a Super Bowl; the game was awarded to New Orleans on March 19, 1969, at the owners meetings held in Palm Springs, California. The Minnesota Vikings, led by head coach Bud Grant, entered the game with an NFL best 12–2 regular season record, leading the older league in total points scored and fewest points allowed, they had scored 50 or greater points in three different games. They lost their first and last games of the season, but in between had 12 straight victories, the longest single-season winning streak in 35 years, their defense, considered the most intimidating in the NFL, was anchored by a defensive line nicknamed the "Purple People Eaters", consisting of defensive tackles Gary Larsen and Alan Page, defensive ends Carl Eller and Jim Marshall.

The secondary was led by defensive backs Bobby Bryant, Earsell Mackbee, Paul Krause. On offense, quarterback Joe Kapp was known for his superb leadership and his running ability, both throwing on the run and running for extra yards, and when Kapp did take off and run, instead of sliding when he was about to be tackled like most quarterbacks, he lowered his shoulder and went right at the tackler. This style of play earned him the nickname "Indestructible". In the NFL Championship Game against the Cleveland Browns, he collided with linebacker Jim Houston while running for a first down, Houston had to be helped off the field after the play ended. Kapp was known for being an unselfish leader: when he was voted the Vikings Most Valuable Player, he turned the award down and said that every player on the team was valuable: "There is no one most valuable Viking. There are 40 most valuable Vikings."Running back Dave Osborn was the team's top rusher with 643 yards and seven touchdowns. He caught 22 passes for 236 yards and another touchdown.

In the passing game, Pro Bowl wide receiver Gene Washington averaged 21.1 yards per catch by recording 821 yards and nine touchdowns from 39 receptions. Wide receiver John Henderson caught 34 passes for 5 touchdowns; the Vikings' offensive line was anchored by Pro Bowlers Grady Mick Tingelhoff. By winning the 1969 NFL Championship, the Vikings became the last possessors of the Ed Thorp Memorial Trophy. Meanwhile, it seemed that the Chiefs, led by head coach Hank Stram, quarterback Len Dawson, were jinxed throughout the year. In the second game of the regular season, Dawson suffered a knee injury that kept him from playing the next six games. In the following week, second string quarterback Jacky Lee went down for the season with a broken ankle in a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. However, third string quarterback Mike Livingston engineered five wins of the next six starts, with Dawson coming off the bench in the second half of the sixth to clinch the win; the Chiefs managed to finish in second place behind the Oakland Raiders in the AFL's Western Division, after suffering a tough 10–6 loss to Oakland in the final game of the regular season.

After that game, many sports writers and fans criticized the team and Dawson for the poor play calling. After a 34–16 road win over the New York Jets on November 16, the Chiefs clinched a playoff spot at 9–1 with four games remaining. Wanting to set itself up more like the NFL right before the merger, the AFL expanded its 1969 playoffs to four teams, with the second place teams from each division traveling to play the first place teams from the other division; as a result of the new playoff format, many critics thought the Chiefs entered the playoffs through a "back-door" as the runner-up in the Western division. However, Dawson silenced the critics and led Kansas City to a strong finish with two road wins in the playoffs, defeating the defending champion Jets 13–6, the Raiders (who had beaten them 41–6 in the previ

Fernleigh, Cleveland

Fernleigh is a heritage-listed cottage at 73 Shore Street East, City of Redland, Australia. It was built c. 1860s. It was added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 11 March 1994. Fernleigh, consisting of a timber cottage and adjoining timber kitchen house, is located on Shore Street East in the area around the Cleveland Point where much of the early development of Cleveland took place. Fernleigh was permanently occupied from the early-mid 1880s by William Taylor, following his retirement from his business in Brisbane; the first land sale took place in Cleveland in 1851, was considered a great success, being described as "... The competition for the Cleveland lots was spirited...the result shows considerable confidence". At the time of the sale, Ipswich was still a strong contender for the capital of Queensland and there was strong rivalry between Cleveland and Brisbane, as to which would become the port to serve the north; the allotments on which Fernleigh stands, lots 14-16 of section 11, were acquired in the 1851 land sale by Jeremiah Scanlan, Robert Cribb and William Augustine Duncan respectively.

The three men were involved in the development of the Moreton Bay settlement: Scanlan as a Brisbane hotel proprietor. As records do not identify whether it was lot 15 or lot 16 on which Fernleigh was built, it is unclear whether it was Cribb or Duncan, responsible for the erection of Fernleigh, it is however, evident that each of these men had an interest in the development of Cleveland and followed the debate regarding the future role of the township. During the early 1850s, Cribb bought much land at both Brisbane and Cleveland land sales not wanting to "miss out" when the decision between Brisbane and Cleveland was made. Duncan was a strong advocate of settlement at Cleveland, expressing the opinion that "... Brisbane can never be aught but a country village..." and that "...the Government should not hesitate to open a Township at Cleveland Point...". Locally, it is held that Fernleigh was built during the 1860s as a holiday house for William Taylor, who had arrived in Brisbane in 1849 on Chaseley, one of emigrant ships organised by the Rev Dr John Dunmore Lang.

It is possible however, that references to Taylor at Cleveland during this period derive from his purchase of land, in the vicinity of Fernleigh, in the 1851 land sale. By the late 1850s, Brisbane was recognised as the main port for Queensland. Cleveland remained isolated, developing into one of two fashionable Brisbane holiday resorts, the other being Sandgate to the north of Brisbane; the Taylor family's first recorded connection with Fernleigh is in 1879, when Taylor's daughters, Ellen and Elizabeth acquired lots 14-15. In 1879, Taylor purchased the Cleveland State School building for £9, it is understood that he moved this building to Fernleigh where it became the kitchen house. Prior to being used as a schoolhouse, the building was a cottage/shop in Cleveland, on land owned by the Hon Arthur Macalister, it was acquired by the Board of Education in 1868 for use as the first Cleveland State School which opened in April of that year. Taylor acquired lot 16 in 1882 at the same time he retired from his business.

Taylor moved to Fernleigh, where he lived until his death in December 1895. The title to lot 16 passed to Taylor's daughters, Fernleigh remained in the Taylor family until the 1960s; the house was proposed to be converted into flats during the 1970s/early 1980s. Fernleigh was acquired by the present owners in 1987. Fernleigh, fronting Shore Street East to the northwest and bounded by GJ Walker Park to the east and south, is a single-storeyed timber residence with a detached kitchen house overlooking Moreton Bay and Stradbroke Island to the east; the residence has a corrugated iron gable roof, in which an attic space has been enclosed in recent years, with a large dormer window to both the northwest and southeast.
