on your BTW that was your choice to stay loyal to your location, I am not from Houston and have no tie to the state, so I have no vested interest in the state or city. So I kept routing for the team I had grown up following.
The point remains the same... if there were an AFL or wherever and the Texans started there before it merged into the NFL... THEN I would use those records,etc. But they didnt... SO I DIDNT. We are talking about the NFL. It wasnt convenient for me...it was an even comparison... its simply convenient FOR YOU.
And yes... it was my choice. In no way shape or form was I going to let Bud double dip with his new Tenn fans and me still here in Houston after he took our team away. Just no way. I can def. see if you have zero ties to this town how you would follow them wherever. But this is my town... and the Texans are my team. Im not sure where you live... but it sounds like your town doesnt have a team.
