nfl.com is now referenced; info not found there is marked {{Citation needed|date=October 2009}}, so I've removed the {{Unreferenced|date=September 2008}} tag. YBG (talk) 08:17, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

Years or seasons[edit]

Is the new column the years played or the seasons played? That is, 1981-1985 could mean 4 seasons ending with the superbowl in 1985 or 5 seasons with or without post-season appearance in 1986. I suspect it means the latter, in which case it would be better to change to column title. But to completely disambiguate the matter, it might be good to add the total number of seasons, either in the same column "5 (1981-85)" or in separate columns "Seasons|Years played with team" or "Seasons played with team|Total". A combined column would require care (e.g., using {{nts}}) to make sorting work correctly. Separate columns would enable sorting either by total years played or by the first year played.

Can somebody create the nomination page for me? Reason: I recently added citations and added pictures, and now think that it is worthy of being a featured list. --71.126.8.99 (talk) 23:09, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
