Keyshaun Johnson was the pioneer of the teens for receivers because there were no 80's left in New York at the time due to current players and retired numbers.


Actually, there was some numbers available. Keyshawn was granted an exception though, and he had to pay fines to be able to use the number.

But, I'm sure there is a decent enough reason for the structure.


As far as I know, a big part of the reasoning is for eligible receivers and stuff like that. Rather than remembering if a player is eligible to be downfield or not, based on where he was originally lined up, the officials can just look at the numbers.

NCAA has some of the same rules too, ineligible receivers on offense have to wear numbers 50-79, and there's a couple other rules too. Because roster sizes are bigger and oft times have a lot of players at one position in comparison to others, they can't have specific rules for all players based on positions, otherwise those numbers would fill up fast.

He paid a fine? Is it really worth it? Confused

When you're making millions a year, sending some money to charities isn't a big deal. He probably would have sent that money to a charity anyway.

Re-reading this thread the degree to which ipwn looks like a prophet is scary.
