    @BrentZwerneman: Bud Adams has passed away in Houston, a source has told me.


    Do with that what you will.

    I would dance a jig but I'm still in mourning over the loss of OA "Bum" Phillips.

    Ironic that he just commented on Bum's passing.

    This would NORMALLY be when I would blindly agree with the illustrious Texan Bill, but I will take NO "joy" in the passing away of a human being even if it is someone whom I reviled; however, now that he's gone I will gladly raise a toast to the Tennessee Titans if they EVER win a Superbowl knowing that he'll never get his grubby fingers on the greatest trophy in sports. :trophy:

    The only sadness I feel is Bum didn't have the opportunity to outlive the old goat.

    Yes, weird how they died within 3 days of one another. Bud Adams fired Bum Phillips and yrs later moved the franchise to TN. Not exactly well liked here in Houston.

    I will still say RIP.

    I'm going to need a grave site location and a roll of toilet paper.

    Maybe a plate of enchiladas and some Schlitz beer the afternoon before I go pay my "respects"

    I almost felt sorry for the guy. He made a massive mistake by moving a historical team with a loyal fan base. Then, after doing so, the city he left - Houston - built a massive, state-of-the-art stadium, which is what he wanted.

    Then, the city of Houston's economy boomed, and the city became one of the wealthiest in the country, which meant that the NFL expansion team that came here eventually capitalized on all that wealth, and become one of the richest franchises in all of sports. Meanwhile, his team is in a small NFL market.

    Bud was a human being, and no way could those things not eat at him. Especially since he continued to live in Houston.

    And, it's not that he moved the team; it's that he did with with such venom: and took the name, continued to use the colors, insisted that no other team could use the Oiler name, etc.

    I'm not originally from Houston, so I have no dog in this fight; but, I kinda feel bad for Oiler fans in a way.

    But, oh well. Without Bud, I wouldn't have my Texans. So there's that.

    Edited to add: my condolences to the family.

    Chronic is reporting it now. I think it might actually have happened.

    It feels like a great weight has been lifted from the world. It's really over and I'm going to take a lot of satisfaction in knowing he's no longer stealing oxygen from this world.
