Yes. Bud not getting what he wanted > warm fuzzies over multiple championships. The man had no soul. Bud only got warm fuzzies about Bud.
Agree. The Oilers were Bud's team. Only for Bud and no one else's.

We got a lot to thank for to Phillips family. Unlike Bud, they care about Houston.

Go Texans!!!

Hard to say.
I don't think it had anything to do with the lack of championships. I think it had more to do with the fact that Bud wanted a new stadium and the mayor Bob Lanier said, not just no but hell no. Meanwhile, the Nashville mayor made Bud a very tempting offer - $144 mil towards a new stadium plus another $70 Mil in guaranteed ticket sales. And, at the time, the Houston fanbase (and the press) was pissed at Bud for breaking up a team that had just finished 12-4 and had made the playoffs for like 5 yrs straight. Also a lot of fans were still pissed that he ran Bum out of town - although consecutive playoff appearances helped take some of the edge off that anger.

Maybe if we had a championship under Bum he wouldn't have been fired and maybe allowed to step down. Maybe if we got one or two trophies during the Run & Shoot era, Bud wouldn't have shipped Moon off to Minnesota... Maybe if someone sane had been the owner...

Who knows.
