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.
His team, he can do what ever he wants with it and Houston fans will still cheer them on. I kinda hope it happens because Drayton McClain left such a bad taste in my mouth the way he ran that team into the ground on purpose. I say screw it, New owner, new league, new name, new identity....

As for a name or re-name Houston Synergy....

or the Houston Metros like Metroplex...

I would disagree. Texans brings in the whole state which is a good marketing plow. True, that includes the Dallas area (technically ), but I don't think that is what his motivation was. JMO.

IF that theory of mine is true, however, it's ironic he would name the team something to get all Texans to feel like it is their team then turn around and not lift a finger to market them at all throughout central and south Texas.

I also prefer(red) Apollos.

Texans is too cheesy, gimmicky for me. But, that's who we are.

Also would have preferred the Green/Yellow unis that were floated.

Let's play musical mascots. We can make the Rockets the name of the baseball team, Astros to football, and Texans to basketball just to piss off the Spurs and Mavs. The Dynamo?? We'll call them the Houston 1836 or maybe the '36'ers.

Man, it's gonna be a long offseason. But I'll play along.

I'm probably one of the few who liked Wildcatters when the final names for the team came out. I just thought it sounded cool. I wasn't a fan of Texans at the time but have grown to like it.

I love the Texans name, our uniforms and our helmets. I think they're awesome!!

I'm glad how it turned out. I still wish we could have named them the Oilers though...

Default Re: Rename the Texans

I guess it's just personal taste, but I really like the name Houston Texans. Flows off the tongue well, and hell...I'm a proud Texans, so I've got no qualms there.

I actually hated every other name floated. I would honestly be embarassed to say I am a fan of the Stallions. There's plenty of horse mascots out there (Broncos, Colts). Apollos made sense, but for some reason never really sat well with me. It just doesn't flow right, in my opinion (too similar to Astros, maybe)


To me, the Texans are the perfect choice, and it embodies who we are. Does it seem lazy? Sure. But, honestly, I think it takes a lot of brass in the world of marketing to choose a name like this, knowing you would get that lable. Quite frankly, Texas is the only state you could do this with, and they took full advantage of it.

I liked the Gamblers, their unis, colors and logo.

Probably could have reached a deal.

Maybe could have signed their old QB instead of drafting DC. Probably would have turned out better.

Guess the powers that be wouldn't like the name Gamblers in the NFL.

Isn't a Wildcatter a dude who runs around and parties all the time?

The name goes back to the original name of the Cowboys, before they moved to KC. it actually has history, although I don't care to be associated with Dallas in any way.
I'm a TEXAN and damn proud of it!

I was chatting online with a guy from Australia recently. He asked me if I was an Aussie. I replied, "No, I'm a Texan" without even thinking about it. Afterward, it occurred to me that I didn't say American, though I am certainly that.

Anyway, that ought to answer the thread question for me.

I would be in favor of changing it to The Oilers, but that's about it. Oilers just fits so well, it's really a shame Houston lost the name in the move.
