Of course I hate the Titans for obvious reasons (bailing on their fans). However even if this team were still the Houston Oilers as a fan I would have some real concern about their lack of class. We all know about the dirty stuff, their thug players, and the classless comments from players like Butterworth and Finegan.

But man, stomping on that Terrible Towel was just totally classless by that "USC thug" Lendale White. It was also a dumbass move because they are probably going to have to play the Steelers again.

Hopefully someone will take them out in the playoffs and stomp on a possum to rub it in.

He played terribly because he had a Titan in his face the entire game. We completely dominated the Steelers O-line.

Please show this 'whole game' you were talking about. Not until the end did White pull one of those towels out and do what he did. We were underdogs in our own stadium with a better record. The main reason I did not like the move was it gives fuel to the Steelers if we play them in the AFC Championship game.

I agree taunting the steelers is not the best approach. I have taken flack for it on my board. Johnson needs to calm himself down; he almost lost the ball of that play and this was not the first time. I have seen a lot worst in the form of celebration from every team and we had to many steeler fans at the game waving those flags. I like that celebration but it need to come after the TD was a for sure not while he was running into the endzone.

I am alusive you would never be able to spot me until it was too late. Some people have pride in there team and think it is part of them because they follow and pay. Fans can make or break a team at home so I would say even in the smallest way we can make a difference and that is all it takes to be part of the team.

The Steelers have a wide fan base and often bring this on themselves. From Titans fans at the game, it was reported many of those Steelers fans were bringing much attention to themselves pre-game talking about how badly the Steelers would beat the Titans and harrassing many Titans fans. So it is understandable why the towel was stomped after the Titans soundly beat the Steelers. And I enjoyed it, remembering being at many of the Oilers-Steelers games in Houston, where Steelers fans were sometimes 30% plus, with those Steelers fans acting arrogantly as visiting fans. And also for us loyal Oilers fans, it was really nice seeing this done against our old and real rival, the Steelers and securing the #1 seed in the process.

This post makes no damn sense......what happened on the field had absolutely nothing to do with the way fans acted in the stands. Titan players have no clue what's going on in the stands. The team just acted like punks, they need to take a page out of the Colts' playbook and learn how to win with class. If I was a Titan fan the last team I would want to face in the playoffs would be the Steelers.......it's just stupid to try to rub a team's nose in poo when you might face that same team in the playoffs.

Actually, besides maybe Denver because of an overall weak defense, the Steelers would be the lighter of the play-offs team match-ups for the Titans to face.

The Titans match up very well against the Steelers. The Steelers have a bad offensive line, especially the interior line. The strength of the Titans is the interior of their defensive line. So the Titans strength is amplified and the Steelers weakness is made worse. Then you throw in a mistake-prone quarterback in Roselisberger and it should be preferred match-up for the Titans.

The teams that worry me are the Jets (Favre is great at getting the ball away quickly), Ravens (very sound defense) and Colts (both teams know each other very well and are both are good teams, so any game is a coin-flip chance for both.)




it's just stupid to try to rub a team's nose in poo when you might face that same team in the playoffs.

If Titans and Steelers meet it is in the AFC Championship game. Does a team need motivation at that point? If so, it likely would not get there. Also, only rabid Steelers fans are making a big deal out of a towel. With the way most players switch teams etc. and therefore looking at being a player as professional career more than as a fan of a team, I would not doubt if many Steelers players are making fun about how crazy their fans are acting about this situation.

But lets say for a minute that the Steelers players are extra motivated. That could play out as a disadvantage. A problem you have in big games (long rivalries, college bowl games, NFL play-offs, Monday Night NFL games) is that younger, less experienced players get too hyped for the game then with so much adrenaline running, they spend themselves in the first few series then hit a wall the rest of the game. Veteran players and coaches are always trying to calm younger players down so this does not happen because if it happens to a lot of players on your team, then you are at a disadvantage after that “high” wears off in the first few series of the game.

So to say that a team with his imprint stamped all over it is classless is saying that he sanctioned that & i don't believe that at all. Just call it what it is; a dumb move by chessburger eddie & whomever that was with him b/c it provides the Steelers with bulletin board material if they wind up meeting again in the playoffs.

Back to topic:

Although Collins was the primary reason the Titans lost to the Texans ( threw very late to very open receivers on crucial downs, four or more times) overall this year, Collins has been much more effective. For example, Roethlisberger has been pretty mistake prone this year; Collins has been pretty solid in that regard. Both of these teams have extremely strong defenses, so both are viewing the QB role as more as a caretaker for both teams, so Roethlisberger has definitely playing his role poorly, whereas Collins is playing that role solid. With that approach I somewhat disagree and I still would like to see Young, thinking it would open up Chris Johnson even more, because defenses would be more porous up front having to contain Young on the sides, but Collins is playing the caretaker role well and if the Titans defense remains dominate, Collins is more than capable of getting it done. I am just worried about pressure on him but with Chris Johnson’s big play ability, defenses can not be too overly aggressive because one missed tackle or player out of position and he can score from anywhere and if a defense can not get QB pressure with its front four, which is hard against the Titans offensive line, Collins might not face too much pressure.

The Titans are a joke? How would Texans fans/players feel if 15,000 Steeler fans stormed into Reliant and waved those stupid dish rags? Chanted "Here we go Steelers" incessantly all game?

Are you an old Oiler fan like me? I sure as hell remember those trips up to Three Rivers that ruined some damn good seasons. The Titans just showed something I can live with - being pissed and sick of the lack of respect they've gotten all season. After the Texans' game, we were accused of peaking too early, being done without Big Al, etc. etc. First it was a weak schedule. There was always a reason for the Titans to be glossed over as overrated in many folks' eyes and this was the team telling all of their doubters to go shove it. The latest flavor of the month/week got their asses handed to them, and that was without Haynesworth and KVB. I'm just fine playing that crappy offensive line again.

IMO the Titans will have a tougher game in the Divisional against the Ravens/Colts/AFC East Champ.

As for class, guess you don't remember Steeler fans rubbing it in our faces after Gary Anderson's game winning FG in OT, or Hines Ward blindsighting Keith Rivers, or the bounty on Carson Palmer. Screw them. I'm glad the towel got stomped on. I'm sick of the love in that team gets and gladly welcome a rematch.

Sure, Steelers fans are obnoxious as Red Sawx fans, and I can understand the urge to rub it in their faces when they invade your home stadium and make a lot of noise. However, professional football players have to be bigger than that. You cannot act in such a way that the fans feel insulted, even if they're obnoxious fans of the opposing team.

Classless indeed.

They changed cities, not colors. They are still the Oilers and stuff like that is what I miss most about them.

We had the House of Pain for goodness sakes. We took pride in hurting the other team and knocking out there players. We smiled when we got boo'd. One of my most cherished memories is watching one of our guys dragging Mike Tomzack 10 yards down field by his face mask in an attempt to rip it off.

Was that when Michael Barrow, in his rookie year and in the middle of the 11 game winning streak, tackled Tomzank, who was running at the sidelines, and Barrow got a bear hug on him and then punched Tomzank repeatedly in the face as they both went into the sidelines?

I thought it was great when the Titans were stomping on that flag. It's football for god sakes, and those teams shouldn't like each other when they are competing for home field advantage and know that their is a good chance that they will face each other in the post season. They played a great game and beat the hell out of the Steelers, and showed them no mercy. That is how a dominant team's attitude should be. I wish that that kind of grit would rub off on the Texans.

I hope these two teams match up again in the playoffs, because it should be a great game again. I just hope the Steelers take the next one and I think they will. They both have a similar game plan and formula for winning, but in the post season I'll have more confidence in Ben than I will in Collins.

You really need to stop acting like they are the same team, because they are not. Like Vinny said, same franchise, different team. It isn't the same and the Oilers died.

However, any true Oiler should remember the rivalry that existed with the Steelers. I know that I do. I remember going to Oilers and Steelers games all of the time and I truly hated them. I hated Rod Woodson more than anyone could imagine, because he was an Oiler killer. I remember those heated Oiler Steeler games even before Cowher was over there. Those games meant a lot back then, and I'll never forget when I cheered on Michael Barrow as he was beating the hell out of Bubby Brister who was the QB of the Steelers at the time. That was EPIC! The Steelers used to always seem to get the best of us when it counted though. Woodson always seemed to have a big hand in that.

Was that when Michael Barrow, in his rookie year and in the middle of the 11 game winning streak, tackled Tomzank, who was running at the sidelines, and Barrow got a bear hug on him and then punched Tomzank repeatedly in the face as they both went into the sidelines?

That 1993 team was my favorite.

No. It was 1995. Marcus Robertson if I remember correctly. It was the next to last game between the Houston Oilers and Steelers at Three Rivers.

I remember going to the last home game between the two and there were so many cars with "Tomzack must die" written on the windows.

The Texan fans are night and day different from Oiler fans. Oiler fans knew how to get to our seats on time and be loud and have attitude during the entire game. Now its just about tailgating and staying classy and who is wearing what on what day.

It used to be simple. Columbia Blue was home and White was away. Now everything has to have a theme and different pant combos.

It's not like he was garbage when he was in philly; he was productive when he was healthy.......emphasis on healthy as he missed lots of time when he was an eagle. Besides, statistically he's doing nothing special since he came back, he just fits the titans scheme better.

My post from earlier will show that I had him pegged as a "system" guy as he benefited from KVB and Al. Watching your own team you would know that Jacob Ford is a better DE then Kearse is. He got hurt when he played with the Eagles and never came back in shape to play. The reason he has an "reemergence" is that teams have to double team KVB or Al.

By the way, Michael Griffin has been my favorite defensive player since he was drafted. I was ticked when the Titans drafted him and he had to go over there. I still root for him individually though.

Yesterday, those picks of his helped me TREMENDOUSLY!! That decision of his to take that INT to the house got me the extra 6 points I needed to win my Fantasy Football SB! I won an extra $750 for winning that. Griffin is the freaking man.

Sorry, we aren't as used to losing as you are. We have a little more pride in our own house.

The fans were pissed because of all of the cocky Steelers. The players were pissed because we were a two point dog in our own house! That's legit. Also, we weren't being cocky until the very end of the game, and at that point, we'd earned it. In a game of the top two conference seeds to determine home field advantage, with a domination like that, this team has earned some pride.

Worried about bulletin board material? They aren't worried about that. Can you imagine how many more sacks we'd get with all of our d-line starters in there? I'm much less worried about the Steelers in the playoffs than about several of the other teams.

If the Steelers are going to twirl their towels in the faces of the other NFL teams, especially on the road, then they need to accept it that the towels will be mocked/messed with when they lose. If they honestly think that their towels are some sort of revered symbol that can't be messed with, that's a little silly.

As for this thread, it's a sad sign of Texans fans wanting to get their sad performance from yesterday off their minds. Yet another season without a winning record. I admired the fight that you put up against us last week, but don't start feeling good about yourselves until you actually break .500.

Here's the facts: Houstonians didn't speak with one loud voice. There were many citizens who weren't happy with the fact that he'd held the city hostage in 1987 only to do it AGAIN less than ten years later, but there just as many who were adamant about the team not leaving.

Seriously, you need to get your facts straight Bipolar....

Over the next three decades, Adams would venture to tap his hometown taxpayers twice more. In 1987, he requested $67 million-worth of stadium upgrades to the Astrodome—including new artificial turf, 10,000 more seats, and 65 new luxury boxes. Adams needed negotiating leverage, so he drew the most formidable weapon in any business executive’s arsenal: he threatened to move his team—in this case to Jacksonville, Florida. Adams got what he wanted from Houston officials through a property-tax hike and a doubling of the hotel tax.

The NFL’s “best” stadium—as Adams referred to the upgraded Astrodome—did not stay that way for very long. In 1993, Adams began tossing around the idea of a brand new dome. His proposed $235-million Ninth Wonder of the World would come with the latest in stadium accouterments, including more of the ever-critical luxury box suites. Those boxes generate big dollars that do not have to be shared with other teams under the NFL’s revenue-sharing plan. They are in fact a huge catalyst for the push in recent years for new stadiums, ballparks, and arenas by many professional teams.

Adams’s plan also called for all the seats from floor to ceiling to be reconfigured to fit not just football, but also hockey, basketball, convention, and concert floor plans. (It’s amazing the ideas one can come up with when spending somebody else’s money.) Although Adams offered to put up $75 million for this new dome, taxpayers would still be called on to sacrifice $160 million more.

As things generally go in the corporate welfare story, this is the place where politicians usually cave in to team owners. However, then-mayor Bob Lanier (no relation to the former NBA star) reacted rather coolly to the Oilers’ demands.

There was nothing to fight over. Slug Adams had ALL the rights to keep the name, colors, and records, as he was the SOLE owner of the franchise from the beginning. There was never an opportunity to negotiate the rights with him and there was never a chance that he would be honorable about the whole deal.

And he didn't creep away with it. He negotiated a deal with Nashville while suing the city of Houston, the county, and Astrodome USA to prevent them from interfering with his negotiations. Slug had no desire to work with the Houston Rodeo or anyone else. He wanted the city and county to give him a stadium that he could control 100%. The sooner that fat piece of human waste passes on to meet his daddy Lucifer, the better, IMO.

Comparing them to the Browns is apples and oranges.

Not sure how you judge D's but I personally judge them on points allowed. As of yesterday Pittsburg no longer holds that being routed and all. If Pitt plays like they did yesterday I doubt they make it past there first game.




Oh I am sure the Titans are so scared of the Steelers. :rolleyes: Please it is the same scum bag team it has always been. It is not like the steelers do not have a reputation for bs retribution stuff. How quick Oiler fans forget the past.



If the Steelers mark one of our player you can bet Haysworth will smear Rothels-Goon so deep in the mud he will be asking what car he ran his bike into this time. And if Ward wants to go over the middle Bulluck will have a little something special for him as well. What goes around comes around and everyone knows the steelers are a bunch of cheap shot whiney bastards.

Hatesworth? Wow. You guys figured out some way of getting that 500 pound bag of pig feces to walk again! Good for you! I thought the karma he got from one of his own team mates knocking a guy (via cheap shot) into the knee that surprisingly doesn't buckle from supporting that massive Buddah belly would have made him grow a big mustache, put on a flannel shirt and write a numbered list of everything he's ever done wrong. "I'm just trying to be a better person. My name is Haysworth." The Steelers had an off game and in the play offs are a different organization as their five superbowls will attest. The Steelers give BETTER than they get. BTW Hines Ward is more than capable of taking out Miss Finnegan like a bad tooth. We all know what the Trojans do in the play offs the entertainment is seeing how they'll F it up this year.

Pretty tough talk from a guy whose team lost their ONLY Superbowl by 12 inches.

You're right man. Your Trojans...excuse me Titans are invincible. It's not like Lindale White plays offense and has to charge INTO defensive units as part of his job or anything. No wait he does. Well it's not like it's likely they'll face the Steelers in an AFC Championship game and Pittsburgh has the best Defense in the NFL...oh wait they do. Well it's not like the Steelers take the whole "Terrible Towel" thing seriously or that defenses attempt to extract brutal revenge of muff-huggas for doing stupid shiznit...oh wait they do. What were we talking about again. Ah yes...your team will never face the Steelers again. In fact the entire organization will cease to exist and be replaced by small fuzzy bunny rabbits, one of which Bud Adams can use as a toupeé at some point to replace the one he's currently wearing which he obviously got at Howard Cossell's yard sale.
If your Trojans make it past the Steelers they'll limp out. The Steelers will show up and turn that game into a hit parade and when they lose I want you to remember Mr. White stomping on that towel.


Pittsburg has the best defense in the NFL? Well, after yesterday, they don't in terms of points per game, the Titans do. We also have a better giveaway/takeaway ratio. What are the two most important things for a defense? If you said points allowed and turnovers, you'd be right! It's not like we already beat the Steelers... oh wait, we just did. Well, it's not like we beat them significantly, or anything... well, we did more than double their score, and won the turnover battle 4-0. Hmmm... Well, the Steelers will be better next time, and the Titans won't... well, except the Titans will get their two best defensive players back...

Yeah, I'm not scared of the Steelers in the playoffs. They have to come back in our house, and we'll paste them again. We're 7-1 all time against the Steelers in our house. Meanwhile, you Texans' fans can enjoy the couch, as usual.

Don't you choke by being the favored team and then losing? We held LT in check the entire game and beat the Chargers up but lost. We beat the spread. I fail to see that as a choke. I know as a Texans fan it is hard to comprehend but you only get that one game to win or lose when it is the playoffs. You do not have another 15 to piss away to teams like the Raiders.

[QUOTE=imatexan;1082912]

Sorry, we aren't as used to losing as you are. We have a little more pride in our own house.

The fans were pissed because of all of the cocky Steelers. The players were pissed because we were a two point dog in our own house! That's legit. Also, we weren't being cocky until the very end of the game, and at that point, we'd earned it. In a game of the top two conference seeds to determine home field advantage, with a domination like that, this team has earned some pride.

Worried about bulletin board material? They aren't worried about that. Can you imagine how many more sacks we'd get with all of our d-line starters in there? I'm much less worried about the Steelers in the playoffs than about several of the other teams.

If the Steelers are going to twirl their towels in the faces of the other NFL teams, especially on the road, then they need to accept it that the towels will be mocked/messed with when they lose. If they honestly think that their towels are some sort of revered symbol that can't be messed with, that's a little silly.

As for this thread, it's a sad sign of Texans fans wanting to get their sad performance from yesterday off their minds. Yet another season without a winning record. I admired the fight that you put up against us last week, but don't start feeling good about yourselves until you actually break .500.

Stupid Titans fans as always, has nothing to do with losing.
You want to talk about pride show me a state that has more of it?
I wasnt talking about bulliten material, I guess most titans fans are just a little slow and cant figure things out. I was talking about the titans players stomping on the towel is going to motivate The Steelers/thier fans.

I am probably a Steelers fan after the Texans, but am not emotionally or fiscally invested in them. Sportsmanship to me is how you conduct yourself on the field of play. Personally, I can't wait for the moment where we squash Lendale on the field and step on Bud Adams rug after a playoff clinching victory against the Fitans. Until then, our nice guys still entertain less than half of the season, surprise us about a quarter of the season and the management jacks our ticket prices up.

On another note, I am very happy the Bears won this evening, which means the Texans are playing in a meaningful game on Sunday. I trust they will play to the level of their opponent as they have done most of the year. So we got that going for us. I will be there like I always am and then off to Robert Earl Keen that evening. The Texans better not mess up our anniversay that weekend or I will be extremely put out. :texflag:

Ok, I have gone through a lot of this thread, as painful as it was.

As a longtime poster here, lemme ask you something.

Am I now 'classless?' As someone that has rooted for the Oilers/Titans since I was 6 years old and Earl Campbell's calf was bigger than me, I find it sad that Titans' fans are lumped in as classless, or better yet, marrying their cousins, lacking teeth etc. I've seen a ton of commentary here and elsewhere that sure as fkn hell lacks class.

Dread, wow, bringing up the one yard short? Got nothing else in your arsenal so go for 'ol faithful? Take my word on this - that play has nothing on the 2 hours of hell I sat through at Rich stadium when Don Beebe and Frank Reich ripped my heart out and I had to deal with Western NY's finest, meaning true inbreds.

Hey Bill, do we need to go tour small towns in Texas and find plenty of evidence that Texas has the same inbred/dental hygine problems as Tennessee?

Don't I sound ridiculous making those comments? I sure think so - it's the type of crap I would expect on the Jerry Springer show. Enough of the petty and tiresome banter between Titans/Texans fans. Grow up and talk football. All of us.

Bud Adams may be a putz and robbed you (and me) of the Oilers, but over a decade and change later, some of this needs to cease. It really does grow old.

Ok, I have gone through a lot of this thread, as painful as it was.

As a longtime poster here, lemme ask you something.

Am I now 'classless?' As someone that has rooted for the Oilers/Titans since I was 6 years old and Earl Campbell's calf was bigger than me, I find it sad that Titans' fans are lumped in as classless, .....

I've been to many NFL and College football stadiums across the great USA and I have come to one conclusion. All football fans are exactly the same. Every team has classless fans, every team has great fans. Its part of football.

Its Bud folks. We truly hate Bud and the idea of him enjoying success is unacceptable and wrong. When he is dead and beginning his new life in Hell, you will see us ease up.

We Love all Football Fans, even the ones rooting for the Titans.

This is one of the funniest posts I've ever read. How can you make fun of a team for losing a very close Superbowl game when your lousy ass team has never made the playoffs? I don't understand that. It's like a virgin making fun of a guy who hooked up with a decent looking girl.

- Oh yea well the girl you slept with wasn't THAT hot!
- OK virgin.
- So you gonna try and hook up with ANOTHER girl who isn't THAT hot?
- I dunno, maybe I will virgin.
- Well I may be a virgin but at least I didn't sleep with a girl who wasn't THAT hot.
- Yea, you've never slept with a girl period. If you could you would take my sloppy seconds in a heartbeat.
- No. I'll get a SUPER HOT girl next year.
- Where have I heard that before?

Quite simply, the dumbest post ever...

First off, many of us have had two teams. The HOUSTON Oilers and the Texans. True that the Texans have yet to make the playoffs in only 7 seasons. Oh boy!! Whoooopdie....

As far as making fun of Tennessee falling one yard short in the Super Bowl, let's just say we see it as fitting for a scumbag owner. Call it karma. So close, yet so far for Rug Head and his "second rate operation".

Stupid Titans fans as always, has nothing to do with losing.
You want to talk about pride show me a state that has more of it?
I wasnt talking about bulliten material, I guess most titans fans are just a little slow and cant figure things out. I was talking about the titans players stomping on the towel is going to motivate The Steelers/thier fans.
Nothing sad about a thread pointing out the truth of a classless organization.

Ha! You don't even understand the meaning of the term "bulletin board material"! Hahahaha! Stupid Texans!

It's a reference to providing the other team with something they can put up on their bulletin board (not an online board, but a push pin board for announcements) and look at all week before a rematch. WE DON'T CARE ABOUT THAT! What, the Steelers weren't motivated by the shot at the #1 seed? They wouldn't be already playing at their best in the AFC Championship Game? We can beat them either way. We'll have KVB and Haynesworth back, and Ben won't get a freaking pass off all day. We don't fear the Steelers, they come into our house, they're going to get stomped on.

My post was partially just one big loud sigh, part 'enough already.' I know the vile towards Bud, and I have a lot of the same hatred. He robbed me of the Houston Oilers, by far my first and biggest love. That said, I made the decision to move on, and root for the team, even with the toupeed wart owning the sucker. I guess I woulda thought having the Texans now for several years would have eased that hatred, but I have seen over the last few years that it won't end. Kinda like Browns fans that still want to see Modell burn in hell, even with their beloved Browns back.

The HOUSTON Oilers are not the Texans. I'm fine with you having pride in the Oilers, many of us have pride in them too. But comparing the Titans to the Texans, it's no contest. 6 playoff trips, 5 playoff wins, an AFC Championship, a Superbowl appearance, oh, and three division titles. All of those are things that the Texans haven't even come close to.

Thank you Captain Obvious. The Oilers are not the Texans. Brilliant. Did you deduce that all by yourself?

Like I said, I've had two teams. The current team is just growing out of it's infancy and getting better. The Oilers passed away in 1996. Columbia Blue turned to powder blue and John Runyan is the last Oiler in the league.

Last, you're right. There is no comparison between the Tits and Texans. The Titans organization (Dud Adams) took 33 years to make it to the Super Bowl. The Texans have existed for 7.

Bud isn't the Titans. You can't have it both ways, and support the oilers, but bash the Titans for the oilers history. I'll take it either way.

In the first ten years of the Titans' history, we accomplished all of the above. You are statistically incapable of matching them in the next three years, even if we don't add to them, which it looks like we will.

I'm pretty sure I remember you from our board, and sorry for the comparison, but it's always going to happen.

For what it's worth, I'm not actually an Oiler fan. I'm a nashville native who starter following the team when it left Houston. The Titans are my team, not the Oilers. I'll accept some bashing for the history if I have to, but if I have to accept it, then you people can't claim to be Oilers fans.

Just for the record, I didn't say the Titans fans were classless (actually the ones I have met are too darn nice). At least the ones outside of Texas that is. I don't know where that got lost in this thread.

The entire point of my initial post was the team is classless, or at least certain players. Like I said in an earlier post I wouldn't have thought twice if I saw a fan in the stands stomping on a Terrible Towel. However seeing players doing some kind of ceremonial dance on it on the sidelines was ridiculous. I know they haven't ever won anything before however they can at least act like it.

Of course there have been other actions on and off the field by certain players that make me draw this conclusion also. Butterworth's stomping on a players head, his comments about injuring opposing team's QBs, Finnegan's dirty hits, etc.

The love of the stinking dish rag always escaped me. Yeah White and Scaife were childish....but I kinda understand it. 12-2 and a 3 point underdog at home? All the talking heads extoling the virtues of the Steeler D and barely uttering a word about the Titans...

The level of disrespect the team has gotten all year has given them a huge chip on their shoulder. 10-0 start? Fluke and an easy schedule. Jets win? Told you so, they're overrated. Texans win? Peaked too early, the run for Collins is over. Other teams always considered a bigger championship threat, and even yesterday, I watched ESPN's talking heads still refuse to give the Titans that 'favorite' mantle, appointing the Colts and Steelers as co-faves. (saying PIT would not lose twice to TEN, even though the Titans have owned the Steelers at LP and will have Al and KVB back next time) So I guess that the players, the ones that read the newspaper or watch ESPN, were ready to let out their emotions after they punked the Steelers. WTF does the team have to do? I guess we both know the answer. Win the whole frigging thing.

In a sense, I'm glad the media has refused to give the Titans much respect. They keep that ammo for the playoffs and maintain the chip on their shoulder you saw at the end of Sunday's game.

I can have it anyway I want it. The Houston Oilers existed from 1960 to 1996. I supported the Oilers players who played their hearts out for this city, i.e. Earl, Dante, Elvin, Dr. Doom etc. I can bash the Titans for the reason stated; Dud "the Bad Rug" Adams.

It's not as simple as saying the first 10 years of the Titan's history. If I remember correctly (and I do) players like Bruce, Steve McNair, Eddie George, Blaine Bishop, and coach Jeff Fisher were all Houston Oilers, therefore many of those pieces were already in place prior to the move.

Titans were not an expansion franchise so your argument is null and void. Titans just moved and changed their name, they already had a roster w/ some proven players when they left Houston, Including future HOF'ers that were drafted originally as HOUSTON Oilers.

Your argument would be the same to say the Ravens won it all when they were only 4 years into the league when everyone knows they were the old browns all along.

Name/Location changing and expansion teams are not the same. Give the Texans a Roster like the Titans had in 1997 and they would not have gone 4-12 their first year.

Now if you said all along you were referring to the years 1960-1970, then i agree, Texans will not be able to accomplish as much as your team did in its first 10 years (4 AFL championship appearances 2 wins).

I think if you go back and revisit this boards threads about the Titan's season, you will see more positive posts than "fluke" comments. Comments such as dominating "D" or dominating run game. Of course that gets lost when Titans fans come here and talk trash about the Texans and/or Oilers (with a few notable exceptions and you know who those few are).

As far as the Titans being an underdog they did just come off a loss to the Texans where Collins looked terrible so that is somewhat understandable. However that being said the Steelers despite winning had not been looking too good themselves. Romo gifted them a win 2 weeks before and I don't think they looked too impressive versus Baltimore and they could have easily lost that game also. Offensively the Steelers are just not that good. IMO, the best the Steelers have looked all year was the game against the Giants. They lost but they looked impressive in that loss. I thought they would be better following that game.

Sure the Towel is a dish rag, however I would have thought the same if it were a Steelers hat, pom pom, jersey, whatever.

Imagine if during the Luv Ya Blue era if Steelers players would have been on the sidelines dancing on an Oilers pom pom or one of those Luv Ya Blue signs. You wouldn't have thought of that as being a classless act showing no sportsmanship? The city of Houston would have been outraged.

When did Fisher whine about Finnegan? IIRC, Fisher was pissed at him bigtime and called out his fouls as a major issue they lost the Texans' game.

I woulda been much more pissed by the loss than the luv ya blue pom pom getting desecrated. If I had to choose between the Renfro play or a pom-pom, it's an easy choice, as a fan or a player. And BTW, as someone that spent a few games at Three Rivers, trust me, they ain't that classy.

Finnegan was selected to his first Pro Bowl this week and is known for his aggressive play, but Titans coach Jeff Fisher defended his cornerback saying that both calls were questionable.

Finnegan fined $25,000 for hit on Schaub (http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=56995)

As I mentioned in that thread, I would think that the Co-Chair of the NFL competition committee would hold his players to a higher standard. Guess I would be wrong in that assumption. But it doesn't matter, Fisher could give a rat's ass if I respect him less or not.

Touche on this one. I thought the spear on Daniels was just flat out stupid. I can actually understand the hit on the QB, lord knows players are taught to blitz and hit the QB, but Finny had time to think and still human missiled himself into a tackled Daniels. To me that was the dumbass play that deserved a fine. The NFL just chooses to always fine QB hits.

And yes, Fisher has shown from the get go this season that this is his ship, and he can give a flying rat's ass what the outside world thinks. The us vs. them mentality he has going for his club sure has worked thus far.

Ha, why don't you just go ahead and call me a "whippersnapper" and tell me how things were in your day? My point is simply that if you're going to claim Oiler's history as former "die hards," it's pretty contradictory to then bash the Oilers. Sure makes you great fans.

Fans hating on other fans is always an interesting phenomenon to me. Claims that others aren't real fans, especially when the person making the claim has little or no personal knowledge of the person that they're making the claim against. It really is a fantastic accomplishment that you're old, and that you've been following professional sports in your city for a long time. I'm very impressed. I grew up in a city without an NFL team. I was thrilled to get the team, and have been an avid follower ever since. As to Houstonians being the real "seed sowers" of the franchise, that's wonderful, but maybe if Houstonians had been a little better supporters they could have kept their own team. Bud found a city with people who wanted an NFL team enough to financially support it. You can call us suckers all you want, but it won't change the fact that because we paid for it, we have the Titans, while you're stuck with the Texans.

We don't really bash the Oilers as much as we bash Dud. I have yet to see one post bashing Earl, Dr. Doom, Elvin, etc.. The closest I've seen anyone bash an Oiler player was Moon and that was a criticism of his inability to win in big games - not a bash.

We don't really bash the Oilers as much as we bash Dud. I have yet to see one post bashing Earl, Dr. Doom, Elvin, etc.. The closest I've seen anyone bash an Oiler player was Moon and that was a criticism of his inability to win in big games - not a bash.

Man has this one been done to death. A rich guy/gal got a better deal after the current city refused to play ball. Nothing Al Davis, Georgia Frontiere, Art Modell, Jim Irsay, Ralph Wilson, Bud et al haven't all done, or will do again, assuming they're alive to try. Hell Leon Hess/Woody Johnson still shares a stadium and will share the next one with the Giants to save $$ and he's a billionaire beyond my wildest dreams. I'm still convinced if you asked a Browns' fan who was more evil, Modell or Hitler, that they would want to ponder the question before answering, and that the vote would be close.

Edit, I might be wrong on the Jets sharing a new stadium?

Y'all have a 13-2 team with homefield advantage throughout the playoffs, yet you troll a Texans forum with unbridled arrogance.

You do realize that the players play the game and YOU WATCH, yeah?

Perhaps there is something inherently inferior about being from Tennessee that causes someone to try to fill the void within themselves by trolling other teams' boards.

Interestingly enough, the better Titans fans in this forum don't actually reside in Tennessee. Perhaps they avoided the tainted water supply that seems to infect individuals to possess such small brains? With that in mind, it should be no wonder why Slug Adams moved his team, and it has nothing to do with the support he got for decades from Houston fans.

You guys are still believing that crap? Do the people on this board sound like people who didn't support their team? I assume if it makes you feel better when you go to sleep at night go ahead. At least Houston got it's own team and didn't have to steal one away from other fans. Sure, the fans have to wait longer for success rather than being handed a team that was already built, however it should be worth it in the long run.

Exactly, and your point proves it has nothing to do with the fans, just politics. Bud was a horrible politician and that is why he got stuck having to move into a smaller, less desirable market. If Bud would haved "played ball" a little more intelligently he would have gotten his stadium and been able to stay where he wanted.

The man obviously still longs for Texas if his draftday decisions are any indication.

Great, thanks for asking. I have many fond memories watching Houston's three pro sports teams (and our semi-pro Phi Slama Jama bunch) during my childhood and teen years. I could also tell you many great stories about the awesomeness of living in Austin since 1989, but you'd just be jealous and might consider moving here. I'm not even forty yet so taking a swing at my age is damn funny. My point is the same point Texan Bill has made here: you have no legitimate claim to the Houston Oilers. Being a lifelong fan of a team is about identity. You can rightly claim a stake to the identity of the Tennessee Titans from 1999-present, but you have no basis for making any statements about OUR OILERS. They were ours, not yours. We wore the derrick and the Columbia blue, we waved those pom poms in the Dome, we welcomed the team back from the devastating losses in Pittsburgh, we screamed our lungs out for Earl Campbell, we winced every time Dan Pastorini took a hit on those broken ribs, we suffered through the Hugh Campbell years and the Buffalo Debacle and the Joe Montana playoff game....you did none of this. You have no right to this history, let alone any authority to tell us otherwise.

Exactly. I'm not the type of sports fan who jumps from team to team or just decides to be a fan of a team for some arbitrary reason. I guess I'm a traditionalist in this regard--your team is decided for you by geography or by blood.

If Houston acquired an NFL castoff, I would not be a fan of that team because I would not buy into lie of stealing another city's sports identity.

I'm confident many Titans fans in Tennessee feel the same way deep down even if they won't say it aloud. They know they stole an identity and a legacy that is not rightfully theirs.

Agreed.

Although as I have stated before I do believe that most titans fans show very little class from what I have encountered(ie. on message board,at games,in general). I hate the titans for things like the dirty hits on Texans players,doing stupid things like stomping on the terrible towel(Steelers were my team growing up, sorry Oilers fans),the Titans fans who invade reliant taunting me when I am watching my team at my teams HOME stadium.

Honestly I think Bud is a jerk but I almost want to do what Joe Texan said to him and thank him for clearing the path for us to have the Texans.

I know that not all titans fans are classeless, there are titans posters on here that show great class. Then there are those who dont, which I know earlier in the thread someone commented on how all NFL fans have the good and bad fans but I cant completely agree with this, some are worse like the titans,cowboys fans.

So many things to respond to, but I'll start with this one. I will apologize for showing up here suddenly and starting right out with the smack talk. To fill you in on the rest of the story, I'm a long time member of the Titans board with many of your regular titans fan visitors who have encouraged me to sign up. I'm not trying to be a troll, and I plan to be around for a while. Unlike many of the others, though, I actually live in Nashville. I'm well aware that I don't play in the games, but let's be honest, all of us who are serious enough fans to be on these boards posting feel some sense of identity with the team. I don't think I'm any farther over that line than most of us. As for being on this board while my team is moving on to bigger and better things... well, as I kind of explained above, my fellow board members who are regulars here have been encouraging me for a while, and I tried to join early in the season when an email problem prevented me from confirming registration. But I'm here, I'm trying not to be too much of a troll, and I'm here to stay. I've put up with Overalls, Silver Oak, and several others over on our board, so I'd appreciate your patience with me.

That being said, back to the discussion...

To Texan Bill, my issue isn't with you bashing individual Oiler players, it's with you saying that you always were die hard Oiler fans, and then turning around and bashing Titans fans for the Oilers' lack of a superbowl. I'll take the smack for the history, but not from people claiming to be fans of that history. As I've said, I'm a Titans fan, I don't try to claim the Oilers' history, though I recognize that others do, as well as Texans fans wanting to claim it to a certain extent. Anyone who followed the team during those years has a right to claim the history, no matter where they live and no matter who they currently support.

Also, to TB and Mailman, I'm perfectly familiar with the concepts behind corporate wellfare. I understand that the fans on this board certainly aren't the ones that let the Oilers leave, but face it, a lot of people in your city didn't step up.

An NFL franchise is a precious things, and a lot of cities that don't have them want them. The notion that we "stole" the team without earning it is ridiculous. We ponied up for the premium boxes and club level seating, and as a club level ticket holder, I'm currently paying the price to keep an NFL team. The fact that Houstonians turned around and ponied up the money AFTER letting the Oilers walk is even sillier.

I understand your anger at Bud, that's fine. But don't take it out on Titans' fans. We're the ones who wanted a franchise badly enough to take it from you. If another city tries to woo the Titans, we're not losing them, we're willing to throw the money after them.

Quite simply, the dumbest post ever...

First off, many of us have had two teams. The HOUSTON Oilers and the Texans. True that the Texans have yet to make the playoffs in only 7 seasons. Oh boy!! Whoooopdie....

As far as making fun of Tennessee falling one yard short in the Super Bowl, let's just say we see it as fitting for a scumbag owner. Call it karma. So close, yet so far for Rug Head and his "second rate operation".

OK well the Houston Oilers aren't your team anymore the Texans are so we will continue to mock the fact that you have yet to make the playoffs. And if you want karma how about the fact that your city turned on the team and your new team cant win more than 8 games in a season?

Future generations of Fitans fans will only know about the legacy of Hulk Hogan. I would imagine that if you asked a Fitan who Peter O'Toole was, they would take a swing at you. I kindly refer you to the exhibit A - Tennessee in the year 2040 - although similarities do appear today, please believe me this is the future, yes it has electrolytes Scro.

*Sigh*

Since you Texan fans can't seem to grasp my simple analogy I'll just explain myself.

Peter O'Toole is an excellent actor who has never won an Oscar yet he's come close often. The Titans are like Peter O'Toole.

Hulk Hogan is a horrible actor who has never even come close to an Oscar because his movies suck. The Texans are Hulk Hogan.

Honestly, it's not that hard.

I stil think if Lanier wasn't mayor though that the Oilers would still be in Houston.

Ultimately Reliant cost more than a new stadium for the Oilers would have.

I loved the towel stomping.It was criminal when the league split up the central.The Steelers/Oilers rivalry was one of the fiercest in football.Anything goes against the Steelers.

I don't buy that in an AFC championship rematch the Steelers would be any harder to beat because of it.The same tape will be watched & the same changes will be made.

If it happens,the outcome will have little to do with the towel stomping no matter how the media spins it.

If this was the Texans ruining the Steelers day & Houston players do the same the majority of fans would be into it just as much as we are.No point worrying about another game when you can revel in the positives of this one.

Just to make clear, 56% to a projected 70% of Harris County taxpayers voted against any proposition that included a plan that included taxpayer money given the fact that we were still paying for the renovations that had just taken place 5 years earlier.

Reliant stadium was a different animal. The majority of tax money used comes from hotel and car rentals tax increases. Also included in the deal was a new exhibition hall along with renovations to the Astro Arena and the grounds surrounding the complex. The lease is shared with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which occupies the building for more dates than the Texans. Bud wanted the lease outright.

BTW, the taxpayers of Harris County were paying for the 1987 renovations long after Dud left town.

Perhaps I was a bit harsh during this festive holiday season.....but on second thought, naaaaaah, not at all.

When perp comes in here - a thread titled "Titans are a classless team" at that - and starts running virgin smack...do I really need to elaborate?

Is the irony lost here?

And let's clear something up here that seems to be a bit of misconception on the part of certain Titans fans (obviously excluding those of you that followed the Oilers and became Titans fans).

This is the difference between shared memories and franchise records.

We are Houston football fans - the key word here being HOUSTON - and we have a shared past full of memories that we lived and breathed. Our bond with the old Houston Oilers players and the moments shared between us are MEMORIES. These are memories that forged relationships, for many of us grew up during the era of Luv Ya Blue watching our parents go crazy with the football spirit and it is something that is the foundation for our love of football. When we get to meet and greet those old players - who are annually honored by the Houston Texans - there is a shared affection. Their face lights up as much as ours does at meeting them, and the glimmer in the eyes from everyone says it all.

These memories are not something that your fat piece of crap owner can ever take away, and they are something that we Houston fans refuse to allow you carpetbaggers to tarnish!

Most Titans fans have absolutely no memories of that past. All they have is franchise records, which are nothing more than stats on paper/screen. They do not convey the message of the experiences. Sure, they can purchase a Luv Ya Blue t-shirt at the Titans online store, but what does that mean to them? A pithy slogan? Some archaic saying that Slug Adams is trying to dry-hump all the way to the bank? Tennessee fans did not experience the reality of it. All they get is the leftovers from that period. Even some of the Oiler greats do not acknowledge Tennessee or the Titans as a team that they relate to, regardless of 'franchise records' or business continuity within a franchise.

So you want to come into OUR forum and disrespect those memories? We can make fun of your franchise records all we want. We experienced them firsthand. But don't be so small-minded as to confuse memories with records. They are two completely different subjects, and one you can have and the other you will never have. Can you figure out which is which?

The difference Eddy is that I went over to gotitans during the week the Texans played the titans for some friendly smack talk but what I was greeted with was people telling me to basically kill myself. I have also posted in other sections of the board other than smack.I even got a PM from a gotitans user apologizing for your behavior.I plan every now and then to go back to gotitans when it is dealing with the Texans or Steelers because thier are a few good posters on the board, but from what you have shown me you are not one of them.

However I will admit that your posts can be entertaining in a smack talk way but after a while it was just too much.

I appreciate that you and Texxan came over man.

Before TT merged a while back we had a great smack forum going.It was never bitter & all parties were able to laugh at themselves.

Since the merge it's been tough to come over here & actually have a laugh.I wanted nothing more to come over here a post a thread laughing at your Oakland loss but I would have been greeted with relentless hostility & been neg repped to death.

I got into visiting smack forums because I had a lot of laughs.It doesn't seem to be that way any more.GoTitans smack forum is great either & rivals get flamed by younger members which isn't great.

I'll try to make an effort to stick around this off season & pay more attention to the Texans happenings.As you said on GoTitans,we're part of the Fan2Fan alliance & are supposed to welcome rival fans.

I think some people on both boards forget that the smack forum is actually for taking the piss out of each other & meant to be fun.
