Default Re: BlazingArrow, BipolarTheTitan, Bulluck53, etc. Where are you guys?

Winning and losing rarely has anything to do with a franchise relocating. If it did the Oilers would have moved years before they did and teams like the Lions would have moved a few times over.

It's always more to do with politics and greedy owners. The fans are the ones that get screwed.

Relocation is horrible for the league. It waters down tradition and it's hard to take these relocation franchises too seriously. Teams like the Packers, Bears, Giants, Steelers, etc have rich tradition. You relocate them and that is out the window. The Indianapolis Colts threw their storied tradition out the window when they left Baltimore, the same with Rams, Browns, etc.

Of course any tradition the Oilers had built up is gone now, however they had a lot of baggage that followed them to their new city like the underachieving, post season choking etc. Moving didn't change any of that. They move and change their name to the Titans, change the logo, uniform, etc. However it ends up being like putting candied sprinkles on a piece of crap and calling it a brownie. Many of the fans fall for it because now it looks like a tasty new brownie in a brand new wrapper. However it's still just the same old crap as you fans got a good mouthfull taste of last Sunday.
