[quote=Blazing Arrow;1150048]I know this is hard for you to comprehend but they are the same team.[/QUOTE

Technicaly ,yes they are the same team. However the Houston Oilers History happened in the City of Houston and with Houstonians being 99% of the fan base. The players that played in Houston and not Tennessee, technicaly are HOUSTON football players. Those that played in both well they belong to both. Ask Carl Mauck if he is a Houston Oiler or Tennessee Titan? We see it as if it happened here it stays here. Hell Y'all went to the super bowl. How many of us try to stake claim to that? Not many I bet.

You just can't help but show your ignorance as to what went down when Bud started with his BS can you?

I can't wait until the same happens in Tennessee, and it will.

I know, they are in the same city, oh wait no, they moved.

They have the same name, oh no wait, they changed that too.

At least they have the same colors, oh wait no, they changed those too.

Saying the Titans are the same as the Oilers is like a man going and having a sex change and still calling herself a man. Admit it, the TITans are sporting around town wearing a push-up and needing estrogen pills to keep there voice high.

But hey, if they want to reminisce about the days when they were real men and played in front of fans from there own city that actually cared about them then, hey, who am I to judge?

I like to rehash my better days too.

You were called out on a technicality. No grass roots campaign was going to keep the Oilers history,etc in Houston. The Ravens were never even going to happen unless Cleveland was awarded a new team immediately after. We were post Browns, Jags, and Panthers and and we were lucky to even get a team back in the end. The timing and variables were different. Thank You Bob McNair!!

Here are quotes from back in the day:
http://www.angelfire.com/tn/OILERSfo...ESSEEnews.html
Quote:
"I want fans to be able to compare Eddie George to Earl Campbell and ask who is the greatest runner in the team's history," said the NFL commissioner. "I want fans to compare Steve McNair with George Blanda and Warren Moon, to compare Tennessee's Bruce Matthews with the Oilers' Mike Munchak."
Quote:
Adams conceded the decision to change the name was an emotional one. His grandfather and father preceded him in the oil business. But once made, the emphasis returned to the future of the football team and the Tennessee franchise.
You just know deep down inside Dud knows he effed up. His heart is here, his family and his history are intertwined with the Oil business and the Houston Oilers, he is now stuck in Tenn with a 2nd rate stadium while Houston is back in the NFL in "his" town with a gem of a stadium, his legacy in his own town is burned to the ground, and its going to stay that way. I guarantee if he could push a button to fix it all.... he would.

Bud the stuck dud Adams.

Just ask Earl. He will tell you himself that he is not and has nothing to do with the Tennessee Titans. Has said so many times.

Last call of someone trying to make excuses for his former team. It is always how the Titans will move and how Bud Adams will screw over the city. Just because you think it happened to you does not mean it will happen again. That is a false analogy.

You don't know your history, I'm done with you. I've seen it explained a good 10 times to you and you still don't get it. You must be awfully obsessed with us to come here as often as you do. How embarrassing for you.

Guys... guys... the beauty of it all is that the Titans fans will always have to deal with this kind of stuff. Its what happens to hand me downs. We got to enjoy one franchise from the very beginnings, no strings attached... and now a brand spanking new one AGAIN... no strings attached. Start our own history from scratch. No matter how you slice it, its sloppy seconds for them. I bet that is a drag.

Explained from a certain point of view. As an Oilers/Titans fan do not agree with the explanation. Which I have explained a good 10 times. Nothing embarrasing about it.

Not sure why y'all are even giving Blazing Sparrow the satisfaction of an argument. Earl himself doesn't consider himself a Titan, nor does he have anything to do with the Tacks. He does have a relationship with the Texans, as do almost all of the old Oilers.

That pretty well settles it, to be honest. The ICOU can think whatever the hell they want, but the people most directly involved in the debate pretty much dictated the answer without any of our input.

Exactly. Why even continue this stupid conversation? The history will always remain with the city and the fans that watched the history happened regardless of what the history books say. I guess when we are all dead and gone and our grandchildren or great-grandchildren read about the team, then sure they will know of the Tennessee Oilers. But by then, will it even matter? Because I strongly believe by that point we will have a team known as the Houston Texans, and that team will have something the Houston Oilers never had: a Super Bowl ring!
