Default Stadium Nickname

WWWAAAAAYYYYYYY back when the Oilers were in town the Astrodome was known as "The House Of Pain." I was just a kid then and am not too sure when the dome got branded with that name (I think it was during the Jerry Glanville era). I was just curiouse if any of you had a good nickname for reliant stadium. I know we havent defined ourselves as a team just yet but I figure this is as good a topic to toss around as any other during this neverending offseason.

Linebacker Robert Lyles is credited with that one. I'm fairly sure it was during the 1987 season. And yes, that was during the rise of Glanville. Eugene Seale and Lyles used to walk around the field in army fatigues and helmets before games. That's about the same time when Chuck Noll went after Glanville on the field following a game in the Dome for alleged headhunting. It was definintely a circus but at least football here was fun again after all those post LYB losing seasons.

Toro might take issue with Slaughterhouse.

I kinda agree with Drift on that one why not call it the Bull Pen

we also could go retro and call it the House of Pain but the defense is gonna really have to live up to that one and and make the opposeing team pay

I also like THE DUNGEON ooooooh it kinda sends chills up your spine

How about The Fort? Sounds inspiring and kind of heroic i guess. Even though Reliant Stadium is bigger than any fort I've seen but it's the symbol and imagery that's important with a nickname.

I'm with Nawzer, I like "The Fort."

You use your defense to hold the fort and then use your offense to destroy those that you are defending the fort against...


Simple yet effective

I think the nick name should inflict fear with it's name like LSU's stadium is called Death Valley

If you want fear you can call it Fort Doom or The Reliant Fortress.

i think a nick name should just come on its own, not just thought up one day.

Rest assured it will just come on its own. These are just the lazy never ending days of the offseason.

If anything it has to do with Texas, Houston and football, or something that opens and closes. I like the RELIANT GIANT.

The big Trap or Big Trap Door.

The BIG CASE

And I always liked Tower of Power. But many disagree due to the old Band Tower of Power.
