    I think the real confusion is that most anniversaries are based on specific dates, not time periods. I think most organizations treat a time period based anniversary as a past tense thing .. as in "We've played X seasons/years!" .. rather than a "this season is our Xth season."

    I can see the argument for both sides, but it really is subjective when it comes to time period based anniversaries.

    I don't disagree in the least. Which is why I think/thought the venomous, unwavering threads and posts on this a couple of years back were so childish.

    Besides, I was right! ;)

    I don't know why anyone would actually care. It's such a trivial thing to be upset about. Especially when the quality of play on the field is so bad.

    This only reminded me of losing to them in their first game.

    Yes, they got it wrong too.

    2002 = 1
    2003 = 2
    2004 = 3
    2005 = 4
    2006 = 5
    2007 = 6
    2008 =7
    2009 =8
    2010 = 9
    2011 = 10
    2012 = 11

    Tex Schramm got it right in 1984.

    Are they celebrating their 10th year, or 10th anniversary? Two very different things.

    I married my wife in 1990. I thought I just celebrated my 22nd anniversary with her but I guess it was really the 21st. I am confused.....

    This is very simple. If you are celebrating the Nth season, then your formula is CurrentYear - StartingYear + 1. If you are instead celebrating an anniversary, it is just CurrentYear - StartingYear.

    If you are celebrating playing 10 season, your anniversary is the final game of the 10th season. Not the first game of your 10th season.

    Now, you can say we *are* playing in our 10th season, but you still haven't played 10 full seasons until you complete the 10th season.

    When you get married, you celebrate your 1st anniversary after your first year, not the day you got married. You celebrate your 10th anniversary once you begin your 11th year of marriage. That is, if you were married on January 1st, 2000. You celebrate your 10th anniversary January 1st, 2010 which also happens to be the beginning of your 11th year being married.

    Football seasons start at 1. Marriages start at 0. We played in 1960. That was 1. You married in 1990 (so did I). That was year 0, 1991 was year 1.

    This discussion is just as hilarious as it was two years ago. Or was it three seasons ago?

    It doesn't bother me that anyone thinks it was nothing. To me, it was a big thing, and I am never going to be all right with that patch. Not even the day I fertilize daisies.

    I think the Texas Rangers got it right for specifically putting the word "Anniversary" on the patch...that takes care of the confusion. If they started in 1972, 2012 IS their 40th anniversary (41st season).

    Think of it like a birthday.

    So was this my 25th or 26th birthday?? I should sue insurance companies since I was 25 when I was 24. Premiums should have dropped a year earlier.

    So after the first game they season is completed or do they have to complete the season for the season is completed?

    If your going to celebrate 50 seasons of football I thinks it pretty safe to assume you have to play 50 SEASONS OF FOOTBALL. Not 49 seasons and 1 game.

    Once the season starts that is the first season. We are now in our 53rd season, not our 52nd. 2010 was our 51st, not our 50th. Our 50th annivesary was January 28, 2010, but the season was our 51st.

    1984, honored by Tex Scgramm was our Silver Anniversary.

    1984 + 25 years = 2009, not 2010. We waited 26 years to add a Golden Anniversary because Jerry was more interested in celebrating a new stadium in 2009. That irks me. I don't know why others are cool with it.

    But to each his own I guess.

    No. On your 25th birthday you begin your 26th year.
