I normally don't like throwback uniforms, but I kinda like those. It's a bit of an FU to the Titans and Bud Adams, so I wouldn't mind seeing it in preseason.

I agree completely.

If we have to connect to any old Houston football team, I say we pick the other one:



Talk about pissing off Bud and Goodell!!

If our season tanks, I'm blaming the bad karma angering the football gods on this thread! You don't eff with it, and this is a bold faced pimp slap to that cosmic energy. We are playing with a Ouija board owned by the devil with this talk.

Do you really want to invite the 35-3 karma into our wonderful franchise? Do you really need a reminder of the power of that karma??

Count me in th Hell No crowd.

Look, put the Oilers in a box, put the box in the attic, cherish the great and irreplacable memories forever as I'm sure I will. Then root, root, root for the home team.

Hate that color. Hate, hate, hate.
I am just a little before your time, but relatively close to you in age, and I have to agree. I loved the LYB teams and coaches, but I hated the baby blue jerseys.

As for a throwback uniform even hinting to a Bud Adams team, no way Jose.

This thread is funny, stupid and intriguing all at the same time!! I love it!!

#Buck Fud!! Go Houston Texans (WFL version / Shreveport Steamers), Houston Gamblers and of course the current version of the Houston Texans!!

Powder Blue, errrrr Columbia Blue and Buck Fud can go to hell.
*Disclaimer*
This statement does not include all of the wonderful people and players that played under that terrible Karma that was Buck Fud's organization. Much love for them!

IF they went with this design, but in the real Texans colors I could deal with it.

The 1974 Houston Texans.

this makes the most sense, its actually been done before too. a current pro team with a very young franchise history, wearing throwback uniforms of a team it has no ties to other than being in the same city.

it was done in the NBA when the Memphis Grizzlies wore the throwback uniforms of the ABA's Memphis Tams. coincidentally they shared the same color combination as the old WFL Texans..



its seems like a smart move, it would shed some light on the cities past. doubt many people know about the WFL Texans, or even the Gamblers..

I would rather do like showtime said.. lock that stuff in a box in the attic



that is it..
if I recall Bud and the NFL locked all history of the Oilers with Bud

leave it with that.
(unlike what cleveland got)
don't get me wrong I loved the Oilers but they died once the Texans got a team (yeah I still followed the Titans when they first moved)

once the Texans came along.. that was it for me on the Titans

If you like this you need to have your mancard revoked, you fan card revoked and you should move to the outhouse next to Bud Adams

Absolutely horrible

I don't think the Texans could even use those colors. Isn't that a trademarked color scheme by Bud Adams?

Ok, here's what you do. Throw together a mockup of that same uniform wearing our real colors.

Aternate uniforms are fine with me. The red Texans jersey with white pants is probably my favorite Texans uniforms.

However fake throwbacks for newer teams with no real throwbacks is a bad idea. The Rays are doing that this season and not good.

Agreed. An "alternate uniform" is fine. The Texans even have an alternate logo that's very much like an updated version of the old WFL Houston Texans logo but it's an alternate, not a throwback.

Lets face it folks, we got nothing to throwback to. No big deal, we got our alternate uniform (Battle Red) and as long as we're beating asses in that it's all good.

For that reason alone Bob McNair would never consider something with the old Oilers colors. He has his own identity and no personal issue with Bud Adams.
