I'd appreciate it if you could crop your gigantic picture. Wrecks havoc and can't read posts correctly. I basically stopped reading everyone's posts after yours because of the picture.

Default Re: Just curious:How big of an oiler fan were you?

was a huge fan growing up. My memories of the Oilers started at the tail end of the Luv Ya Blue era so all the solid stuff came from the crap years 81-87.

I lived and died, ate and breathed, Oiler football. My book reports in English class where about the Oilers needs for the Off season and what position needed to be upgraded.

I would get into arguments and even fights discussing the Oilers.

I got into a heated argument with one of my teachers during the 93 season after we started 1-3. I was reading the sports page in class and my teacher was talking about how horrible the Oilers where. The sports section that day had the Oilers up coming schedule and after looking over it I told him that the Oilers would not lose another game. I conceded that maybe they lose to the 9er's but I felt there momentum would carry them through that game even though it was the 9er's home game we would still win. We bet lunch, he still owes me.

I cried after every playoff loss.

I have the same set of drinking glasses that whiskeyrbl has.

I have and still play the 45 with the Oilers theme song.

I still hate Cleveland, Pitts, Cinci, Chuck Knoll, Bill Billijoke, Sam Wyche, Bill Cower, Marty Shotmydinger, and the Icky shuffle.

I would take the Houston Oilers over the Texans any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

If I became president I would order all landfill in the United States, make a deal with Mexico and Canada to receive there landfill, and dump it all in the state of Tennessee.

Default Re: Just curious:How big of an oiler fan were you?

I never did much "gear" when I was younger but I was a big fan...I actually followed the franchise to Memphis and went to games at the Toilet er, Liberty Bowl, then moved to Nashville and went to games at the stadium formerly known as Adelphia Stadium. Yeah...I know. I've gotten a hard time over this but hey, I was a big time Oiler fan, had the means and my wife couldn't have children and didn't have much of a central family to keep me in Houston...whatchagonnado? It was a great time in my life fwiw.

I saw Jack Pardee's 70's era Walter Peyton Bears get crushed as 15th round draft pick Billy "white shoes" Johnson returned a 3 kicks for a TD. I marveled at Ken Anderson and his precision passing game when the Bengals came to town. I was at the Astrodome when the team returned from Pittsburgh....Much of my love for football stems from those games I got to see live in the early to mid 70's when the Oilers were really not a good team...but I got to see the rise to respectability.

Back 'in the day' local Houston kids would get on the School bus and see more Cowboy jackets than Oiler Jackets since the Oilers were only on TV for road games....the team would never beat the 72 hour blackout rule although the games would routinely sell out with our historically strong game day walk up ticket demand. I think a large part of that was because back in the 70's Houston was a relocation town for the dying rust belt. Back then the only real "gear" was the jackets you could buy in the Sears catalogue. At school you saw Cowboy jackets everywhere and every now and then you would see a silver, grey and blue Oilers jacket. I think that was largely due to all the blackouts combined with the Superbowls the Cowboys were enjoying back in the day.

My all time favorite player ever on defense was Dr Doom - Robert Brazille. He was a 7 time pro bowler who should be in the HOF. Curly Culp and Robert Brazille were the two best defensive players I've ever seen play live probably. There was no way one man could block Culp...he was just an impossible bear on the inside although he was considered undersized. The Oilers defense completely turned around when Sid Gillman traded John Matusak for Curly Culp and went to new defensive coodinator Bum Phillips newfangled 3-4. At the mid-point the team lost most of the games the season we traded for Culp but once Culp was in the middle the team went on to win most of their remaining games late in the year to finish up at .500. The Bum Phillips era was kicked off and the rest is history.

Earl was easily the best offensive skill player I've ever seen live.

My uncle worked in the video dept. for the Oilers from '72 to '85 and got tapes of all the games. After he left, he went ahead and taped the later ones until they left. I've got the '77 season tapes right now.

As far as merchandise, I wasn't much of a buyer, but my dad and grandparents were. He's got my ol' Moon jersey from when I was 8 (needless to say it doesn't fit).

I was a huge Oiler fan.

My Mom knew Billy "White Shoes", and I got to meet Earl, Robert Brazil, and that whole team.

I can only hope I will be as big a Texan fan as I was an Oiler.

not that there is anything wrong with that, you know....(seinfeld reference for those out of the loop)

I can see the obvious pain. It's like the pain folks had in their heart when Carr supporters finally realized that Carr and a back up QB on your roster meant that you had two back up quarterbacks....and a cap hit that makes your eyes water from the fumes.
