Default A thread to ponder....................

Many of you dont know this but much like you I was an Oilers fan since 1960. Where we are different I kept my allegiance to the Titans and moved from Houston to Nashville in 1999 to stay with the team................a guy on a titans website posted this paragraph and my son called me to read it...............it reflects precisely how I felt when the oilers left houston.............I am wondering if you guys could share how it affected you...............some oiler fans on our site have also posted and it really felt nostalgic to go back to those luv ya blue days and thinking back to all those great days in the dome................

I used to follow the oilers too. Started with LuvyaBlue. Putting the signs on the front lawn, running snowbirds with PA Plates off the road, the whole nine yards.

Dallas hater, not sure why. I guess because it was too easy to root for the favorite. In my youth I saw my young friends who were Dallas fans as frontrunners/bandwagonners whatever. So I loved the Oilers and Earl Campbell. Then it evolved to Warren Moon and his years here. Bottomline is Bud sucked balls as an owner and never won a damn thing. So I can't get too jacked about the good old days.

What King said^^^ but I will add that I stayed an Oiler's fan up through when they were a lame duck team. I stayed a fan until the day they packed the trucks and hit I-10. Once that happened, I actually gave up on the NFL, because I sure as hell wasn't going to become a cowgurls fan.

Default Re: A thread to ponder....................

i will tell you this too..............because of the manner in which these teams are linked there are many fans even in TN who wish the best for the Texans every week except two...............I know I am one................And believe it or not I still read the chronicle everyday and follow the Texans extremely closely................I actually got some jollies at your two wins over the Jags so at times I feel like I am double dipping a bit..............

Was a fan of the Oilers since '69 when I really started to understand what football was. There were alot of more disappointments than good times, but could you imagine if we would have had Pastorini, Campbell,Brazille, Bingham, Childress,Burroughs, K. Houston, Coleman, Givens, Jeffries, Mc Dowell, Dishman all in their prime at the same time. Hmmmmmmmmmm nice thoughts.

well I was retired and I doubt you find a bigger sports fan than me. I live Oiler Titan football. While I never agreed with everything Bud did I think Houston politics did him wrong too. But there was no way I was bailing on a young McNair and EG. Too many bad yrs with Oilers would never let that happen. 1999 was like Nirvana for a man like me. Most fun I ever had in my life.

Dont forget some other greats, Munchak, Matthews, Harvey Salem, Whiteshoes Johnson, Bethea, and more.

Who was that DE that we traded for from GB that did pretty good too? Wasn't his first name Sean something?

Sean Jones was a Beast, Remember Don Hardeman on SP, don't think anyone to this day hit or hits people that hard. I remember being at a HOU-PITT game and the returner for Pitt got to the outside at about the 30 and then POW, like he hit a brickwall, needless to say he didn't get up to quick.

LOL! I'm not sure I'd call it loyalty.

I thought all those periods looked familiar. Welcome back Bonger. What happened to VYs ankle? Any news?

Thumbs down Re: A thread to ponder....................

Bud wasn't ever going to give up the name or colors, so it's a moot point.

I was angry for 5 years without football, but if anything it made me more of a fan of the game.
Has increased my passion for the sport and taught me to support the team the football gods have bestowed upon us.
I can live with the down years and bad moves.. ever team has to go thru it.
Some just go thru it longer, but it makes it sweeter...

How has it turned out for Oiler/Titan fans?
One yard short!

one yard short was still the best yr of football ever..............that run through the playoffs...............was AMAZING......................any Oiler fan would have just cried over the Music City Miracle payback to the Bills..................nothing ever tasted sweeter to an old dog than that.............and beating Jughead with Edge at home was beautiful................and the pounding the Jags for a third time at their house after they dismantled the fins the week before 62-7 was orgasmic.

Some others but more obscure:
Bo Eason.... Jeff McDonald(?)..... The bo-legged corner that was here when the Titans left? Mike Barber....

Just when we, meaning the Oilers were getting on track, they started that other league and ruined the dang draft for many teams. They took big time players like Jim Kelly and Hershel Walker. Wasnt that the USFL or something league? Man, talking about a stroll down memory lane...

We even had a Heismen trophy running back at one time...

Yeah Mike Rozier from Nebraska, was a pretty good talent. Used to go to Gamblers games and watch Kelly, That guy was awesome. IIRC we had Sanders too that went on to be an outstanding reciever for the skins
