50th year AFL confusion....

I tried to post before but it didn't take so I'll try again. My understanding was any time 2 original AFL teams faced off, that they'd wear their 1960 duds, but that does not seem to be the case. I don't understand why they don't do that. Very disappointing, as is the NFL anyway anymore.

Also, while this is the 50th season for the 8 original AFL teams, the Dallas Cowboys also began in the "old" NFL in 1960. Why do they have nothing on their uniforms, etc. to commemorate their golden anniversary? And no I don't count the new stadium as what they would use to commemorate it either. Just wondering why. I remember the Cowboys had a "25" on their uniforms w/a star back in 1984, so I wonder why nothing for their 50th year.

Because Jerry was told he could either celebrate the Jerrydome or the 50th. Not both.

/Just guessing.

Paragraph 1: Your understanding was incorrect. The NFL announced that there would be 16 Legacy Games (including the HOF Game). Only eleven Legacy Games will be match-ups between the eight original AFL teams.

Paragraph 2: While their 50th season is this year, like the AFL teams, they could celebrate their 50th Anniversary in 2010, which is different
