Bengals' 50th Anniversary Plans Include Logo, Honoring Former Players
The Bengals yesterday rolled out plans for their 50th anniversary, including a commemorative logo and plans to honor the team's history. Another portion of the celebration is the selection of the Bengals First 50, which will recognize the top 50 retired Bengals players as voted on by the fans and media (Bengals). The move to honor former players is a "break from a long-standing stance" for the club. No "formal team Hall of Fame or ring of honor will be created, but the players will be recognized during halftime of each regular-season home game." A "dozen former players and former assistant coach Jim Anderson were in attendance" at Paul Brown Stadium yesterday to formally announce the plans (CINCINNATI.com, 4/20).
