Default Question about the Titans/Texans relationship

Hey guys, Texans fan from the UK here - very keen to find out new information about the team.

Quick question - how do the Houston residents feel about the Titans? Do they have any ambivalence towards them, or do they see them as the team that destroyed the Oilers?

Thanks guys!

I don't know about anyone else, but I rooted hard for the Titans (while being bitter as hell) when they first left Houston and we had no team, all the way up to their Superbowl run. Why? Because they had players I loved to watch, like McNair and Bruce Matthews and wanted to see them succeed, it wasn't their fault they played for a greedy (fill-it-in)... My interest tailed off (I had always been a Broncos fan...) as the team did, so admittedly, it was more of a fair weather thing, jeryseys was alright too. But to answer your question, yeah, I have to hate them as long as they stand in the Texans way, but during seasons like this past one, I want them to win games against some teams (partly so they wouldn't have a high draft order). I just hope I don't end up liking any of their new players...

Ambivalence should never under any circumstance be mentioned in the same sentence as the..that team. The one that was stolen from us and shoved a championship in our face from an ungodly place. They will be crushed and spat on at the bottom of the division. May god have mercy on their souls, because as a Texans fan I have none.

Bud The Dud is an unwelcome citezen of Houston now, He never walks down a dark alley and hides while in town. I ripped up my check and gave up my 50 yard line tickets when they announced they were moving. Bud is a cuss word in Houston.

Nothing against Jeff Fisher or Steve McNair or any of the Titans staff or players, but the long and short of it, from a former Oiler fan's perspective, is that the Titan's could lose every single game and I would never feel sorry for them.

Why?

Bud Adams. He is Satan's spawn and has contributed nothing to the common good of humanity. He is a spoiled rich brat who will only know failure because of his short-sighted and selfish nature...

Any questions?

If the Texans draft Vince Young, I will remain a fan.

If the Titans get Vince, the Oilers are my favorite team . . . again.

The he sounds alike lot Tom Benson.

Trust me, I'm also a Saints fan as well and we are going through the same ordeal right now.

Thank god Commissioner Taglibue (spelling) is fully aware and understands this situation and helping us out as much as he can.

What happened to my homestate and what was and is happening to my homestate team, I could never wish upon anyone.

I didn't live in Houston when the Oiler played so I have a different opinion on it.

I like the Titans. I don't know much about Bud Adams, but I like the players and I like the coach (except, of course, when they play the Texans). They aren't my 2nd favorite team in the NFL, by I don't have any animosity towards them. They don't really feel like a rival to me. The Jaguars are a bigger rival to the Texans than the Titans are, IMO. So I feel no ill will towards them. I just want the Texans to kick their ***** whenever we play them.

Wow. Alot of strong feelings towards Bud. From what I remember, Bud wanted a new stadium built in Houston of which he was going to fott part of the bill, but couldn't get an agreement or something of that nature w/ the city. I dunno. I know blamed Bob Lanier for the team leaving though.

Bud Adams, greedy? Perhaps. But until Jeff Fisher, Steve McNair, and I really hope this is not something that ends up happening Vince Young are not there anymore I'll root for them.

Now when they play the Texans, IT'S ALL ABOUT THE TEXANS!!!!
