You need to learn your history before posting nonsense.

For instance, did you know that the NFL was planning an expansion team in Houston in 1960?

Bud Adams prevented it from happening by pulling strings to keep Rice Stadium from being used by the NFL.

So the NFL put a team in Dallas instead.

Read the history of the Oilers to educate yourself.

Here are some good places to start:

Oiler Blues: The Story of Pro Football's Most Frustrating Team

Loser Takes All: Bud Adams, Bad Football, & Big Business

The Little League That Could: A History of the American Football League

I have fond memories of the Oilers, and no doubt a small part of me wishes Bud never took them from us.

But he did and nothing is going to change it.

So the Houston Oilers lives on in our collective memories, hearts, and a display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. That display, of course, belongs to the Tennessee Titans.

"Cause yesterday don't mean ****
What's over is over and nothing between
Yesterday don't mean ****
Because tomorrow's the day you have to face"

Please read A Six-Gun Salute: An Illustrated History of the Houston Colt .45s and come back here and tell me that again.
