The retiring of numbers should be an extremely rare event, but it's been cheapened to an accolade for any decent player that's played more than 5 years for a team. At that rate, players in a couple of generations will not have any numbers to wear. Might as well break out the 3 digit numbers, fractionals, and mathematical constants.
This is sports. They're not awarding medals of honor or Purple Hearts here
