It's weird, what "unofficially retired" or "in effect" means--

May 25, 2023 01:26PM
It was not issued "making it retired" but then Von Miller wanted it -- it was "unofficially" retired
but they can do whatever needs to be done to make it official now, send paperwork to the league?
Nothing, just say it's retured? Not sure these even is a process.

NBC Sports
"The Rams have several retired numbers. Elroy Hirsch’s No. 40 is not among them.

Still, the number hasn’t been issued in decades. Linebacker Von Miller, who wore No. 40 at Texas A&M, has gotten the blessing of Hirsch’s family to wear the unofficially retired number.

Officially, the Rams have retired eight numbers: 7 (Bob Waterfield), 28 (Marshall Faulk), 29 (Eric Dickerson), 74 (Merlin Olen), 75 (Deacon Jones), 78 (Jackie Slater), 80 (Isaac Bruce), and 85 (Jack Youngblood).

Von Miller now gets his chance to wear 40, with blessing from the family of former Rams legend Elroy “Crazy Legs” Hirsch. The Hall of Famer ..."

but old media guide says this---which is what they mean by unofficial, not issued---
