why do they pre-set the times for the Conf. champ. games? If Seattle hosts, that’s a Noon local time start. And nothing like a 6:30 start in Boston in January….

It rotates by year. So in the even years (this year), the AFC hosts the late game, while the NC hosts the early game.
I agree with you though they shouldn’t preset the times, they should have the better game be at 5 PT, and the not-as-good game at 1:30 PT. You should be able to have the primetime starts because the following day is MLK Jr Day, so there is no work/school.
