Naming conventions[edit]

  • For dates pertaining to the regular season and playoffs held prior to the AFL-NFL Merger, the year should be in which the majority of the season was held.
  • For articles pertaining to specific events or games, whenever a team name is used, it should be the team name at the time of the event, but link to the current team page (unless there are pages for the team in earlier forms).


See the following sub pages for information on article structures. If you would like to comment on the recommended format for an article type, please do so on the talk page for that article type's subpage.

General strategy and discussion forums[edit]


The terms "NFL player" and "American Football League player" are not mutually exclusive. Some men played oly in the NFL, some played only in the American Football League, and some played in both, or even both plus other leagues. For example, {{Infobox NFL player}} omits or incorrectly lists information on NFL players who also played in the American Football League. Rather than having "American Football League only" or "NFL only" templates, the following should be used:

these allow information to be entered for any professional football player. SugnuSicilianu 18:37, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
