And thankfully, Bob McNair does not want anything from that franchise to taint his team.
It's time for old Oilers fans to accept that the 'Houston Oilers' is now nothing more than a footnote in NFL history and fading memories for some football fans in Houston.
A co-worker is a massive Titans fan. When we first started talking about sports, I asked him what his team was. He said, "The hometown team. The TITANS."
I said, "Oh, you're from Nashville, huh. I was there once. Cool town."
He said, "No, man. I'm from Houston."
It took me a minute to digest what he said, but, I eventually said, "The Titans are not Houston's team, though."
He then went on and on about the Oilers, and I then told him that the Oilers no longer exist. He looked at me like I had three heads.
In the four years I've worked with him, I've tried to explain to him that the Oilers are no longer around, and that the Titans are based in Nashville, but, he doesn't seem to "get it."
Houston-based Titans fans are sad. They blame the residents of Houston for the Oilers' departure, and still think the Oilers will eventually return from the dead. Newsflash: they aren't.
