And no, Earl Campbell doesn't belong to the Titans. The NFL might say that for HoF purposes. But Earl played in Houston. We love him, he loves us. That's the real history.

So, no big deal, but big deal because EARL!!!!!!! Has nothing to do with Bud.

I'm not flaming you, but this is just basic history. And respect.
But all his records belong to the Titans, ergo he belongs to the Titans...Is this just some fascination that Houston fans have?

Never was an Oiler fan, lived too far north to catch any of the Oilers games, unless they were giving up a 35-3 lead on NBC,(sorry, had to get that one in!) so I never understood the logic behind this. Yes he played for the city, but the team left, and took all his records with it...right?
