Can't see him getting fired. I expect a resignation or reassignment.

Should he be fired, I hope it is McNair and not Smith doing it. Smith needs to go as well.

I dont know how much the minority owners paid but I am assuming around 100 mil. 300+200+100 mil = 600 mil if my math is correct. This means BoB paid out of his pocket 100 mil. You can figure out the % BoB is making on his $$$$ with little to no risk.



I dont think you understand how the numbers came together for the deal. I do not believe that Reliant nor Harris county purchased ownership of the Texans. Also I am sure in a 700MM dollar deal Mcnair had to put up more than 100million to obtain enough ownership rights to become the majority owner. Chuck Watson orginally owned 15% Im sure he didnt put up 105million of his own money to only have 15% ownership when 100 million got Bob that majority


also since you have a hard time with facts or math Bob doesnt own 100% currently so the Forbes estimate of 1.4 billion cant be used to calculate his return.

McNair obviously trolls these forums and was overwhelmingly persuaded to can kubes based on the ratio of yes vs no

Crazy to see the numbers. 95 to 31 at this point believing that McNair would keep Kubiak, and then he does the completely unexpected and fired him during a season.

Maybe McNair will continue to challenge the status quo and think bold about the future. This team has talent, and there is no reason to believe that we have to endure another 4-5 year rebuild.

I think you're reading that wrong.

It was 95 to 31 thinking he would FIRE him, not keep him.
