They didn't. I stayed until the end of Thursdays draft. But a lot of people just left at that point, not because anything was shut down.

Thanks

We left early because we thought with everybody leaving the Texans were shutting the party down.

My mistake.

The mistake Bud made is that he asked for a new stadium first. If Bud would've let Alexander ask 1st the Oilerswould still be in Houston and the Rockets would've moved some other place. IMHO

I cant stand Bud but from a business perspective I didn't blame him for leaving.

Bud greased the skids for the low quality product the Texans have put on the field. Going without NFL football for a while has let McNair make a fortune with no retribution in regards to the product that McNair has put on the field.

Bud was run out of town due to the embarrasing Buffalo/K.C. playoff games. IMHO

McNair will get a free pass for 20 yrs or more because of the Oilers leaving town. McNair shouldn't get this pass IMHO. He should be judged by the product that he puts on the field. Like every other NFL owner.
Revisionist history. Fact, Pud Adams was offered a new stadium in the 11th hour by then Mayor Bob Lanier.

Fact, in 1987 (after the $67mill worth of renovations) Bud declared the Dome the best stadium in the NFL.

Fact, Bud wouldn't give up $ 700,000.000. for anything...

Fact, Pud never paid anything other than rent for the 30 years in the Astrodome. It was handed to him.

Fact. Pud never paid a dime for the new Stadium in Nashville. In fact, the city of Nashville paid Pud Adams $28 million for "relocating costs".

Did not know about Lanier's 11th hr deal.

Bud made the Tacks pay through the nose to get a NFL team. The Tack politicians were willing to do the deal. Houston's elected officials weren't willing to do a new deal for Bud until it was too late it appears.

Mayor Lanier's objection at first was that he was worried about "Joe Six-pack" footing the bill.

Fact, it was McNair that ponied up. In fact he ponied up to the tune of $ 700,000,000.00. Fact, the tax burden is placed on hotel guests, and rent-a-car customers. How often do you stay in hotel? How often do you rent a car???

*sigh*
Still owe over $30 million, right? Mother ****in ***hole! Where's the *** **** cussing thread when you ****in need it! ****!

Also stupid cheerleader auditions took up too much time, when the actual draft was taking place. They could have chosen a spot to perform that was further away from the viewing crowd.
Were yall in the VIP? because in the VIP they just played for a while and then left.
