It doesn't look like the Texans will be needing it anytime soon either.

The whole giving yourself a nickname thing is childish and embarrassing. Just like Kobe calling himself Black Mamba. It seems like it's a topic of discussion for some fans like it's a big deal... a player makes a big play and he needs a nickname. I don't get it.

The Dome was called "The House of Pain" for a while because of the whoopings the defense put on people, not because some fans thought it up. If you called Reliant the House of Pain it would be for an altogether different reason.

Stop trying to force the issue. When they actually perform the nickname that you cherish so highly will come... but I hope not.

I think this was was brought up before in a previous thread. That said, I love the song from RATM and I like it whenever they play it after the "D" makes a play.

However, NO, I do not like it as a nickname. Nor do I like letterman's jackets.

NOR, DO I LIKE LOSING!!!

I still support Damage Inc. as the defensive nickname. And you can easily change it to Damaged Inc. to reflect the current state of the Texans D.

No need for rainbows, unicorns or any other gay paraphenalia.

Bulls on Parade grows on you but it is still sort of eh.

I honestly won't mind it going away if only to get something closer in step to intimidating or referencing something more inspirational then just a old song that isn't even a legit crossover classic. I mean given the fact that Houston was once home to Robert "Dr. Doom" Brazile and the Astrodome was once known as "House of Pain" we can do something better then that.

It's too late to vote but the nickname is a good one IMO.

How about "Bull**** on the Field" instead.

I went along with the name, but I thought that it was a kinda silly name. Never cared for the song either!

I never got the whole Texans-bulls thing.

They should have simply gotten a normal nickname (and not recycled the name of the Dallas AFL team).

And the logo looks like a mask from the orgy in Eyes Wide Shut.

Well...they kind of nicknamed themselves...that's kind of weak.

But I don't have any issue with the name itself. Not worried about it not sounding tough enough. Who are you trying to intimidate with a nickname?

I don't think they have Bears in Chicago at all, & I know they don't have blue lions in Detroit or Jaguars with blue-green tongues in Florida.

Bulls & Texas go together. The uniforms are representative of the Texas flag. The name itself is awfully pedestrian, but I couldn't care less if some other team used it decades ago.

Not an accident that especially in football, the vast majority of nicknames are predator animals or peoples that perceived as warriors/strongly independent.

Oh well, hopefully the Texans will beat the Massachusites this weekend.

I thought the Toros was a better name. It ties the logo and obvious regional name together.

But whatever, a name is a name. People thought the Patriots name was goofy until they became a dynasty. Winning championships is ultimately what makes the name and logo iconic.

And when a team gets to that point, any nicknames are bestowed by sportswriters and immortalized by NFL Films. That is the precedent set by the football gods. The Texans tried to shortcut it, and look where it got them.
