In a groundbreaking move, Texans owner Bob McNair will return to the City of Houston and its taxpayers all profits made from the operation of his football team over the past seven years.

This is an unprecedented and absolutely stunning development, but with the embarrassment and ridicule the city has endured thanks to the Texans it's the least McNair could do.

Remember the words of Chuck Watson, McNair's former partner in trying to bring an NFL and/or an NHL team here?

"Maybe we're better off spending our money on the performing arts or the needy," Watson said when he dissolved the partnership.

McNair could have just given rebates to season ticket holders and others who have bought individual tickets to oh-so-many Texans' debacles, but because all of the citizens whether they care about the NFL or not contributed to pay for his little toy, he has decided to give back to us all.

"I didn't get in this business to make money; I got in to win a championship," McNair told the Chronicle's John McClain. "I want our players to feel the same way."

This is awsome, way to go Mr. McNair.

I guess this proves that that he is not in it to make a profit.

If you think that is awesome just read more and you will find much more awesomeness...

One random Houstonian, preferably one who can't play a lick of football, will be put on the payroll and given $40 million over the next five years just because. (People named David Carr are not eligible for this prize.)
To enhance the Game Day experience, every ticket holder (if he or she so desires) will be given a personal cheerleader for the day.
More moves to ensure the ledger hits zero to come.

I really hope a Dallas or Tennessee fan doesn't wind up with the $40 million.

Wow, way to go McNair.

I wonder if more teams will take a similiar approach.

I know the article is joke but did McNair actually say the above somewhere or was that made up too? That would be an awesome quote if it were real, especially with morons like Dunta Robinson on the team.

Haha I'm intrigued yet confused.

Also, the two pre-season games will be free!?
This is going to be interesting.

Haha I'm intrigued yet confused.

It started with the idea of 70,000 cheerleaders in the stands, then each one was cheering for the fan, and it went downhill from there.

Mind, meet gutter. LOL

I don't know what sadder here... the fact that some members actually seem to be excited and believe this, or the fact that the title alone was enough to convince me 100% it was a joke :(

That's about as awesomeness as awesomeness gets!!!

They get a personal visit from Flaming Sparrow since he's in tune with the girly stuff.
