    Imo Ray Elgaard deserves the honour

    No more retiring numbers. Put the honoured players up around the stadium and that's more than enough.

          Retire 5 a year. Move to hexadecimal.

          Onward with escaping the hopeless fantasy of an artificial freedom and darkened picket fences the disillusioned front of friendly foes

                  I agree with Elgaard about how Ridgway's retired number seems strange and sort of stands out compared to the others.

                    3down must be searching for headlines, or clicks.
                    Fact is Johnny Quinn wore 81 before Geroy did here.

                      81 and 80 are not retired, and won't be. You could argue that they both deserve it, but moving away from number retirements probably makes the most sense.

                      We already had to reuse eligible receiver numbers the year we had like 18 broken fibulas. Taking two more out of circulation permanently, followed by potentially more, would eventually be a problem.

                        They are pulling this from an interview at least a couple of weeks old. Can't remember if I heard it on Greenzone or on the Rider Rumblings podcast

                          Exactly, I think the numbers of great players should be considered lucky and if we are talking about superstitions, should be great. I'd love to see another GC winning #4 or #5, or heck #23 quarterback as an example.

                            So do I. Elgaard mentions that he and some other players figure Ridgway had it in his contract that his number would be retired. Makes about as much sense as anything since he was not deserving of that ultimate team honor in my opinion.
