"We regulate any stealin' of his property...and we're damn good at it, but you can't be any geek off the street. Ya gotta be handy with the steel if ya know what I mean to earn your keep."


"REGULATORS!....MOUNT UP!"

It was a clear black night, a clear white moon, Warren G was on the streets, tryin' to consume....

Just hit the east side of the LBC, on a mission tryin' find Mr. Warren G, seen a car full of girls ain't no need to tweak, all you skirts know what's up with two-one-three.

So I hooks a left, on Two One and Lewis, some brothers shooting' dice so i said "Let's do this," I hopped out my ride, and said "What's up?" Some brothers pulled some gats so I said, "I"m stuck."

That was my favorite song back in the day. I even follow Warren G on Facebook. LOL. I'm a dork.

This is a very good point. The defense does not NEED an official name. What the defense needs is for each fan to determine what they feel about the defense - how they perceive them in their hearts and minds - thus, naming them accordingly on a personal level.

This makes for true fan participation on a quantum level: What the city needs for a stronger symbiotic relationship between the players and fans.

For Conner Barwin, "Bulls on Parade" gets him groovin'. Cool.

For some, it will be "Damage Inc.". Badass!

And these names can fluxuate, because on rare occasions the defense is collectively known as "The Kareem Jacksons."

As for me, I prefer to call the defense "The Anti-Life Equation."

Whatever gets us through the night is always right.

I think the reason so many hate the idea of Bulls On Parade is because they aren't thinking outside the box with the term "parade" and what it means. Let me demonstrate...

pa·rade/pəˈrād/
Noun:
A public procession, esp. one celebrating a special day or event and including marching bands and floats.

Verb:
Walk or march in public in a formal procession or in an ostentatious or attention-seeking way.

So you take it as a verb, instead of a noun, and now you have exactly what this defense did all year. They were on a march, or a mission if you will, to publicly show their vulgar or pretentious display(ostentatious) way of stomping a mud hole in you and walking it dry each and every play. That is what this defense did each and every week, for the most part, especially in the playoffs. They were Bulls on Parade....

Some of yall are comparing it to Gay Pride, which I think there is some tendencies that need to be addressed, or some Macy's Thanksgiving Parade (the Noun portion) but if you dig deeper into the meaning, it fits this defense...

It's not Bulls in a Parade, It's Bulls on Parade, or Bull's on march, a mission, a quest, to absolutely dominate you....

at least that's what I got out of it...

Because all good nicknames should need a 4 paragraph explanation that includes a vocabulary lesson to explain why they are in fact not bad nicknames.

Perhaps future editions of the T-shirt should print your post on the back to sway those who just don't seem to be warming up to it.

Seriously. The Ravens have consistently been one of the best defenses for the past decade.

They did not gloss themselves before they did anything. NFL Films did not gloss them, sportswriters and fans did not gloss them, they just consistently come out and kick ass.

I think the reason so many hate the idea of Bulls On Parade is because they aren't thinking outside the box with the term "parade" and what it means. Let me demonstrate...

pa·rade/pəˈrād/
Noun:
A public procession, esp. one celebrating a special day or event and including marching bands and floats.

Verb:
Walk or march in public in a formal procession or in an ostentatious or attention-seeking way.

So you take it as a verb, instead of a noun, and now you have exactly what this defense did all year. They were on a march, or a mission if you will, to publicly show their vulgar or pretentious display(ostentatious) way of stomping a mud hole in you and walking it dry each and every play. That is what this defense did each and every week, for the most part, especially in the playoffs. They were Bulls on Parade....

Some of yall are comparing it to Gay Pride, which I think there is some tendencies that need to be addressed, or some Macy's Thanksgiving Parade (the Noun portion) but if you dig deeper into the meaning, it fits this defense...

It's not Bulls in a Parade, It's Bulls on Parade, or Bull's on march, a mission, a quest, to absolutely dominate you....

at least that's what I got out of it...

Gee thanks...lol. I was wondering what that word meant.

Thing is, until your post I never even thought of the Gay Pride thing. Chalk up yet another reason it's a bad, dorky name no matter how you cut it. Sometimes an idea is just bad.

Listen to this.

You see what I'm saying?

Let a name come to the team. It'll happen and if it doesn't we are one of many great defenses that didn't have a nickname and I can live with that just fine. Certainly much easier than having the one being shoved down our throats now.

"Bulls on Parade" sounds like "Gay Studs Doin' Their Thang!"

Yuck.

Bulls on parade
1. "Bulls on parade!" - North American metaphor slang, Usually used to notify those around you that police officers/soldiers are present and/or taking action nearby, and that it may be time to defend yourself against them.

"Bulls on Parade" is also a song by the band RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, which features on the Album "Vietnow". The band often uses this song as an opener as it is very exiting and contains powerful anti government rhetoric.

"oh **** watch out man, they're coming... YO! BULLS ON PARADE!"

RATM: "Arms warehouses fill as quick as the cells,
Rally round the family with a pocket full of shells,
...BULLS ON PARADE!"

Bull Queer
1. A man who enjoys having sex with other men, but only without their consent. The more their prey wiggles and attempts escape the happier the bull queer, due to this their prey are sometimes known as 'wigglers'.

Often found in prisions, army bases and public schools.

I bent over to pick up my soap and the next thing i knew i was being arse raped by a bull queer.

If I wasn't laughing so hard at this post, I'd neg rep you. But, it was funny as hell.

However, since you're a guy, don't EVER call me that again or I'll petition to have your man card taken away.

The fans who pay their damned salaries, that's who!! I guess we should rename Relaint stadium the Blue Oyster Bar.

You do have the option of not going.

Should they run draft picks by you too? I mean you are paying "their damned salaries".

My suggestion would be Damage Inc. and if someone can provide a high res shot of the defensive players as a group, or that shot of them in the locker room, I will mock up a nice wall paper With Damage Inc.

This sounds like a real NFL defense name. While I like the Bulls on Parade song it does not really have anything to do with what they do beside having the word bull in the name.

The fact that the term refers to police I think Bulls on Parade could mean any show of force, not just police so it works on that level, but if you have never heard the song (and nationally how many have?) it does sound kind of gay. Think of someone like Richard Simmons saying it "Bulls on Parade" and that will help you visualize what some fans mean when they say it sounds gay.

Damage Inc. is short, and on point. I can imagine seeing signs hanging in home games and away games or hearing the announcers calling them Damage Inc. I mean did you hear Dierdorf say "Bulls on Parade"? Sounded pretty gay coming out of his mouth for sure.

EDIT: I forgot to mention this is a song from Metallica and while not for everyone, the lyrics are pretty kewl in my view albeit a bit harsh in a few places so I doubt it would get any airtime at the stadium, but if you are interested ...

How about we played the Ravens in the "Divisional Round" and lost because we had a rookie QB, but worst, a 5 year PRO (that would be Jacoby Jones) that craps the bed "AND" we paid him 10 mill... Yates "crapped the bed", but then again, why wouldn't he???


Aweaome!!! :ok:

Nice job bro... the songs pace really fits well with the pace of that pass rush. I really think this name should be chosen by the fans and embraced. It's a rockin' name for this D! Rep to you...

First thing I've read concerning a nickname that made the slightest bit of sense.

DeMeco Ryans is the undisputed beginning of the defense and has been since he was a rookie. He's the closest thing to Andre Johnson in terms of sheer authority that they have on that side of the ball.

Especially Blaine Gabbart....Damage Inc. just seems to fit these guys. They go to work and bring the pain with them. I really love the sack on Big Ben by MW where he had work a bit ti get him down. That really highlighted MW's abilities to me. He was relentless on that sack.
Besides, Damage, Inc. is at least tough sounding. I would rather be punched in the junk than utter bulls on parade for any reason.

So how about we just use that in our discussions then? Let's tweet that to them, include it in all our tweets and messages, yell it in the crowd, etc?

Band names change, why can't nicknames?

Good idea, and maybe if enough people tweet all of the players they might adopt it. Probably going to be tough to overcome what they seem to have already picked, but who knows.

If you like Damage Inc and would like to see the D adopt it as their official nickname, please tweet the players, coaches, FO Staff and anyone else that has anything to do with the Texans.

Anyone got a really nice high resolution shot of the Defense they would like to contribute to the effort?

Wish I did. Though even the bloody shot of Cushing speaks it well enough, lol.
