Imo I don't think the name is "Gay". I also don't think it fits as a name for our Defense.
You know, when one has to explain what the name means to people, it is probably not a good name for our defense.

I recognized the bull from a bronze sculpture on Wall Street:



I do not recognize the artistic version as a RATM cover, but perhaps a bootleg or singles version for the song?

Just a little bit, yes.

I'm sure we can be all, "No, you guys are using it all wrong. The name refers to the socialistic Rage against the Machine song with the same title."

& they'll be, "Oh, thank you for pointing that out. Let me find something else more appropriate to make fun of."

Hell no, you'll see pictures of Brian Cushing, Brooks Reed, & Antonio Smith wearing Tutu's for years to come.

It's ridiculous.

If they want to adopt that as their theme song.... great, I'll jam along when I hear it at Reliant, I'll think about them when I hear it on the radio, I'll make it my freak'n ringtone for Mario Williams.

But I'm not calling the Texans' defense Bulls on Parade.
Do you really think people didn't make fun of 5 guys dressed up as football players on a set with fake gravestones and machine fog calling themselves the doomsday D? I can make fun of anything. Doomsday D? More like GAYsday!!! Steel curtain? More like GAY curtain!!! People can and will make fun of everything. I just think it's funny that so many people are in search of an identity when nothing will ever meet the mystic standard they come up with from some old posters or something.

I'm not pro-nickname btw. That song just jams.

I say keep the song, but don't stress or worry about a nickname. Like all good nicknames, it's best if it's given to you by someone else. Unfortunately with Barwin championing this nickname, it's likely to stick regardless of the naysayers.

Love the song... I mean "Rally around the family with a pocket full of shells." How cooler can it get.

And I saw Rage in 1993 at Lolapalooza. They were no ones back then and they put on a great show.

I like the song too. If they want that to be their theme song, that's cool. If that's the song they want playing as they come out of the tunnel, that's cool.

But I don't think the name works for a football team. Especially not one that is moving away from the "soft" image.

So out of curiosity why does the Rep system even matter. Does one lose a body part or something if you get so many negative reps?

If one recieves so many postive reps do we get a car at the end of the year?

Just wondering why they matter.

They play the riff from Disturbed's "Sickness".... that would be a cool nickname.

& I still love that "Black Betty" riff.... maybe we can call the defense Black Betty. It sounds tougher than Bulls on Parade.

Oh GAWD! I hate that Black Betty song with the heat of a thousand suns. I'd rather stick hot ice picks in my ears than listen to that dreck. And more hardcore than Rage? Hardly.

But that's just my personal opinion, of course.

I like the opening guitar riff. That's the only part they play in the stadium.

I didn't say the song was more "hardcore" than RATM.

I said the song title "Black Betty" sounds tougher than the song title "Bulls on Parade"

And that right there neatly summarizes the problem with this suggested nickname. As soon as you have to start explaining what it means you're done. That's it, thank you for the suggestion. Keep up the good work and I'm sure you'll come up with something eventually.

Doomsday Defense. Everyone clear on the meaning of "Doomsday"? Steel Curtain? Monsters, Midway, Orange, Crush..... Everyone notice how they tend to trend toward the simple/descriptive?

I got my student loans paid off when I crossed 10,000 by some obscure government agency Obama created. Of course when I got negative rep twice in a month I was investigated by the FBI and put on a no-fly list.
