the rant smiley was meant as a joke really. I was hoping that was obvious, but I guess not.

I think you take me to seriously and that is why we bump heads. No hard feelings take my post more light hearted and they will not get to you as much.

Assuming that no fan of the Titans was an Oiler fan. That is a huge assumption that is not correct. I know at least two people that posted in this thread alone that that does not apply too.

You can attempt to run your rather meaningless smack all you want to, but it is quite pointless. We don't live in the past, but we don't forget it, either.

Here you are - a Titans fan - on a Texans board running smack about a five year old franchise, while being completely ignorant of your own team's historical failures and players. And you want to lecture us on 'sad and pathetic'? You're a case study on the subject, skippy.
Pathetic? I never used that word. What I did say was "sad" was abandoning your childhood team and memories. Then to take it to the point of pulling out games that broke your heart at the time just as much as mine. Seems kind of Benedict Arnold to me.

Pointing out problems with the Titans is one thing but bringing in Oilers history, a team you have admitted to being a die hard of is sad. It is even worst if you can not see the reason why, jimbo.

Dang, I can remember Earl rushing for 199 yards (on MNF against Miami) almost 30 years ago, but I remember it as clearly as the Titans falling 1 yard short....

I dont think some people realize that you were an Oiler fan before the move - and that you have no ties to Tennessee because you are from the left coast... With that said, the "move" had no bearing on your fandom...

Sorry, the hatred for Bud will always keep people on one side of the fence or the other. In most cases we claim the players. Especially the players who refuse to acknowledge the Titans because they were "Houston Oilers". We stick Bud with all the fun records, because afterall he owns them: Buffalo, Denver etc... They are no longer the black cloud (named Bud) over Houston...

Back to Topic......
Titans will have a horrible season and VY misses 5 games with injury....

nah young wont miss any games with injury, although he'll probably wish he had.

I think Young's madden curse was the FO he had this off-season. the curse is finding more and more ways to affect players

Exactly, so in a way I get the best of both worlds. My team I have been loayal too for 20+ years is still the same team to me. Yeah we have different uni or what not but I also remember getting harassed in school about oil derricks and TN. Now they change there name and the next group comes in to make a new comment.

I understand the hate for the OWNER but the team? The players do not make the choices. To hate a team because of one person is pretty bad. I mean if that were the case would there be any Raider fans? (one could only hope).

OK so you have been loyal to the same team for 20 years, would you not want the owner to show the same loyalty? I thought that was the point, to be loyal to the team and they loyal to you. I do not see any Colts fans continuing to love them after they moved or the Ram or the cardinals in football. The fans got screwed and will hate the team for it for all time.

Why, it has happened in all sports. Don't the players represent the team? So as the player is, so is the team. When fans show there displeasure for how players act and the team does something about players who act certain ways, that means the fans are ok by those actions so those actions represent the fans.

Though I would want the loyalty I did not purchase the team. The team was purchased to make money. If the franchise does not make money then it needs to move. I think if you were put in a situation where someone said move the team and you will make millions more then you do now you would make the move. Maybe not but before the situation is staring you right in the face I have a feeling you would answer that question with your heart not logic. People who have the money that Adams has do not get rich by letting there heart get in the way.

I didn't know the Cards had fans but I will take your word on it. The Rams fan base was soft anyways coming out of LA. Show up in the 2nd leave in the early 4th to beat traffic.

While people do hate a player for what ever reason the owner is another story. Does not play, does not make the on field decisions durning game time.

oh yeah, that No. 1 Loser ring. Must keep you warm at night. It'll go good with those back-to-back AFL Championship trophies.

The fact is that your franchise has the same number of NFL Championships as mine...except yours has been in existence for over 40 years, while mine a mere 5.

You might not need my pity, but you have it anyway because you deserve it.

Now I've already given you props earlier in this thread as the exception to the rule. So don't be so delusional to believe that the overwhelming majority of Titans fans - you know, those that live in Tennessee - were Oilers fans.

So you've got three examples in this thread, but compared to the tens of thousands in Tennessee, I do believe you are in the minority of Titans fans that were fans of the Houston Oilers. (In case your public education has failed you, "minority" means "less than".)

O.K., I'm going to type really slow in order for your comprehension:

The Houston Oilers no longer exist, they're gone, history.

My mention of Oilers history was a direct response to one of your fans:

This is a position that most Titans fans have, and if anything you should find sad, it's bandwagon fans that refuse to acknowledge their team's past.

Go ahead, defend his statement. It just makes it all that much sadder.

See above reply, and feel free to ask questions for clarification if any of the words are too big.

I was a diehard fan, but how can you be a fan of something that no longer exists? The Tennessee Titans are not the Houston Oilers. It's a pretty black and white reality that you do not seem to be able to grasp.

And speaking of Benedict Arnold; Who was it, exactly, that moved the team, changed the name and colors, and denies history while clinging to record books?

Let me know when Titans retro jerseys sport an oil derrick. Until then, your attempt to belittle our memories is in vain. We remember something that most Titans fans are clueless about. We celebrate players and the Houston Oilers every year. We embrace our past. A past, I should add, that has never included the Tennesee Titans.

I suppose a Titans fan trolling a Texans forum would know low brow when he sees it, so I guess you got me there. I defer to the expert in the field.

Default Re: I was thinking about what it means to be a Titans

heh, on a side note, thanks to UTVinceYoung for the negative rep in a smack thread.

You do realize two things, right?

1. We're just having fun, and I like all NFL fans (sports is superficial entertainment that we can't get too emotional about), and...

2. UTVinceYoung has absolutely no rep power, so it is quite meaningless. If I were one to seek vengeance, I'd return the favor. But I'm not like that, and will refrain from giving you -27 rep points.

My apologies if your feelings were hurt in a soft emotional state. It's all in good fun, right Blazing Arrow?

But I shall wear the neg rep from Titans fan with honor!

Houston Oilers history belongs to the Tennessee Titans and their fans. Sorry but it's true. The only thing that changed for the Oilers was the name of the team but The Tennessee Titans are the old Houston Oilers. Sorry. Thanks for the history.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Houston_Oilers


During the 1998 season, Adams announced that in response to fan requests, he was changing the Oilers' name to coincide with the opening of their new stadium and to better connect with Nashville. He also declared that the renamed team would retain the Oilers' heritage (including team records) and that there would be a Hall of Fame honoring the greatest players from both eras. Unlike four years earlier, when Art Modell was forced to leave the Cleveland Browns' name and heritage behind when he moved his organization to Baltimore, NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue raised no objection when Adams declared that he would retain the rights to the Oilers name--effectively foreclosing Houston from reclaiming it for an expansion team.

You do know that anyone can change the info on wikiepedia so quoting something like that and putting it as gossible even if it is right only makes you look like someone who would watch a movie to do a book report on. Nice, I bet your teachers are so very proud of you.

There is no delusion I see it all of the time on the Titans boards, but I am also not naive enough to assume that every person who is a football fan is 30+ .

So you've got three examples in this thread, but compared to the tens of thousands in Tennessee, I do believe you are in the minority of Titans fans that were fans of the Houston Oilers. (In case your public education has failed you, "minority" means "less than".)
Funny, I used 2 examples. The number that proceeds 2. I went to a private high school (ranked#1 in the nation, had a national championship my senior year, and currently has two NFL starts A Toomer, and DJ Williams.). I have two degrees from the #5 rank public University in the nation and a pretty plush job at a winery. If you must know.

See I am able to ID low brow comments because they always seem to goto some level that attacks the poster and does not attack the post. It is also the signs of someone who has nothing else to say so in there head they have to make up things that make them feel better about themselves inside.

O.K., I'm going to type really slow in order for your comprehension:
Oh here is another. I am good at this game.

The Houston Oilers no longer exist, they're gone, history.
Yes, Titan history.

My mention of Oilers history was a direct response to one of your fans:

This is a position that most Titans fans have, and if anything you should find sad, it's bandwagon fans that refuse to acknowledge their team's past.

Go ahead, defend his statement. It just makes it all that much sadder.
I do not defend other posts. They were not my words. I do think it is sad that people do not take the time to recognize the history, but again I am not one of those people. As a former Oilers fan it was low class of you to rip on events that happened to a team that you followed. I have been trying to think of the word that best describes that and all I come up with is turncoat or two-faced. It is the same as when Barlow last season came out against the 9ers saying what a crappy team they were not more then a week after he was traded.

See above reply, and feel free to ask questions for clarification if any of the words are too big.
OH OH, another.

I was a diehard fan, but how can you be a fan of something that no longer exists? The Tennessee Titans are not the Houston Oilers. It's a pretty black and white reality that you do not seem to be able to grasp.
Are the SF Giants the same team as the NY Giants? Are the LA Dodgers the same team as the Brooklyn Dodgers? Time heals wounds and when your generation passes I bet there will be a allot more people willing to accept the organizations entire history. Titans fans and the NFL seem to be able to make the correlation, it just seems that football fans in Houston can not make that leap.

So you weren't even around for Luv Ya Blue. hmmmpf...figures.
Before my time. I was a 9er fan as a young child because they were what was on. Moon and the shoot got me hooked on the Oilers/Titans. I have been a fan since.

I suppose a Titans fan trolling a Texans forum would know low brow when he sees it, so I guess you got me there. I defer to the expert in the field.
I was able to ID several instances in this post of low brow comments. I guess I am the expert. Keep it to the team and do not attack the poster. People who knew me from the original TT know that I keep it to football and refrain from the low class stuff unless I am trying to make a point of how asinine it sounds.

You do realize two things, right?

1. We're just having fun, and I like all NFL fans (sports is superficial entertainment that we can't get too emotional about), and...

2. UTVinceYoung has absolutely no rep power, so it is quite meaningless. If I were one to seek vengeance, I'd return the favor. But I'm not like that, and will refrain from giving you -27 rep points.

My apologies if your feelings were hurt in a soft emotional state. It's all in good fun, right Blazing Arrow?

But I shall wear the neg rep from Titans fan with honor!
My only neg rep so far is from someone calling me a troll. Yeah ok if you want to call me that but you know there are allot worst trolls so be happy with you current population.

Feeling hurt. That is comedy. I wish the "Smack Off" thread was still on here. It was like 20 pages of all types of smack.

BTW-the vote ended in my favor on a rival board.

If making baseless accusations about my intelligence and schooling is all you got ...... suggestion
