The jerseys worn the last year before the team moved to Dallas, and especially the logo, remained largely the same.

While there isn't a need or an obligation that franchises should have to pay 'homage' to their history, should they be considerate and keep things largely the same, there is a much better chance that fans from that region will still follow the team, having a distant sense of loyalty.
Yup. And once you go away from it, you can't go back. We're at a nice balance where we have old fans in one hand, new ones in the other. Why mess with that?
