Yes, it was a bad thing...at the time. You wouldn't be sittin' here with that attitude if we didn't have our Texans now...

Bud? Yeah, goodbye and good riddance...

But he could have left us the team.

Man...those were the days...Rivalry? PITTSBURGH...gives me chills just thinkin about it!

But, alas, we have a new team and new teams to conquer...

We'll have an actual rival when we get to the playoffs...

Until then...sure, we can have fun spankin' the Jags, whippin' the girls, and flushin' the tampons...err...titans...

But if someone has to ask, the answer should be as obvious as Mr. Pitts jumpin offsides!

Bud had no obligation to "Leave" the Oilers in Houston. He owns them. He took the risk and started them, bought them so he owns them. If you remember he (Bud) was offering to build a stadium downtown. It was mayor Lanier (with support from Drayton). That forced Bud to shop for a new city because the dome was "good enough" for pro sports.

You're right...he was under no obligation to leave the team.

He could have, however, done a better job of working with the city...

But, alas, we get off topic... ;-)

have to agree with what you're saying, but the Titans have the x - factor, x - houston, they will always be the #1 rival for the texans, and I hope we kick their @sses every year , twice a year from this date forward, amen

I wish we could've some how got the Steelers and the Bills in our division along with the titans. This city hates both those teams. Irony of this post is that I just realized we play them in weeks 1 & 2 this season.

I know that you guys had a thread on your biggest rival and they mostly varied between Dallas and the AFC Sout teams...let's do it the right way...

My boredom is so very sad...is it time for football yet?

Dallas
Jacksonville
The dolts
The Tacks

Jacksonville should be the kittens.

On a personal level, I hate Buffalo for the great comeback. On an everyday fan level, the Jags. DelRio was so confident earlier. It was sweet knocking the kittens out of playoff contention in their house.

This is a new year. I hope the Texans are ready for revenge for last year.

Yeah, but your playoff contention wouldn't have weighed on the Bronco's game had you at least taken one from us.

I would have to say Indy. I didn't hate any teams in the NFL till the Texans came along and started playing the Colts. They just give us fits and for a Texans fan it's very frustrating!!

Well yeah, you win one of your other losses and it makes that difference but you had two opoortunities to take one from us and didn't. That's what makes losing to us (twice) more significant.

I never post over here(respect thing) but this post was so absurd that I had to post.
One, you will never sweep this division. There's simply too much talent in all four franchises for that to happen. As much as we like to rib each other, if you're honest, you have to give credit to all four teams for being among the best in the NFL.(note I said among)
First off, you'd have to get thru the Colts to do that and it won't happen. Paymeaton may choke once but only the Pats have succeeded in keeping him at bay.
Then you have a pretty damn tough Texans team that has really come a long way. Again, you may beat them in Jacksonville, but I doubt it in Houston.
THEN, you have that curse when playing against us in AllTitans............face it BCH, we own ya in Jacksonville.
As for rivalries......no one in our league is our true rival .........yet. The Colts might be getting close though. The distinction of Titan rival goes to the ratbirds without a doubt. Much like we knocked you out of the running, they knocked us out and it's been a battle ever since. I don't even know that we hate the Rams as bad as those pesky ratbirds!
Here's to an injury-free season for all of us(and may it hurry the heck up!).............Peace!
