Default Rename the Texans

There has been some talk of renaming the Astros which is dumb in my opinion. If any team needs to be renamed its the Texans. I have always been a fan of the team and I like the colors and the logo, but the name is bland. They could keep the logo and name the team the Toros or the bulls. Maybe the Hurricanes or the Roughnecks.

In the grand scheme of things it really doesn't matter. Just a thought.

The Stallions sounded too much like the Colts to me.

I was in favor of something that identifies with the city. Houston is noted, world-wide, for two things, Energy and AeroSpace. That's why every other Houston team has a name related to one of those two things.

Dynamo, Oilers -- energy
Aeros, Rockets, Comets, Astros -- AeroSpace

I kinda liked the Roughnecks since it was energy related and those guys are pretty tough to do what they do.

And there's just waaay too many potential Montrose-related jokes in that "Drillers" name.

from an outsiders perspective i think the texans is great. for non-americans like my self there are a few stereo types that come out and one of them is that the state of texas is football mad. also that texas is not southern or midwest its TEXAS.
i really like the texans. even though I'm not a "texan" I'm definitely a

Default Re: Rename the Texans

I liked the Apollos. But honestly, the name Texans has grown on me. I was skeptical at first, I honestly thought they would change the name after a season, but now I can't imagine any other name. I love the Texans.


Also, Jim Crane would be run out on a rail if he re names the Astros. For a long time, The Astros were the heart and soul of this city! Just because we change leauges doesn't mean we change names too!!! I know that everyone still loves the Astros, and that wonderful feeling that we felt in 2005 at Minute Maid, or even the feeling we felt a couple of weeks ago at Reliant, will be back and strong soon in Minute Maid.

Was there a contest I was unaware of? Did Hook'em come into some SB 2013 tickets that he's auctioning off for the worst thread of the week? Seriously first trade schaub/MW for Manning... now rename the team? Roughnecks? Yeah because I want to be sentenced to the "rednecks" for the rest of my life?

Come on guys, man up and stop saying stupid @%@%.
