Honor or Retirement?

In light of another Jersey Retirement tonight, would you support 'honoring' Player's jersey as oppose to Retiring the Number from Circulation?

I'd do retirements for KEY guys..

However, they should honour guys who bleed the bleu, blanc, et rouge for numerous years.

Retirement for those truly great players, only they should have their numbers up in the rafters. Honouring numbers, and allowing them to remain in circulation, makes it too easy to justify raising the numbers of undeserving players whose accomplishments don't merit their number going to the rafters, no matter how much of a fan favorite they may have been.

You can honour players in other ways, the ring of Hall of Famers, for example, or have stuff around the concourse. The rafters should be reserved for the true greats.
