    I don't know. Am I back in Jr. High and did I miss the memo that this is opposite day or something.


    Isn't there a difference between being visionary and having visions?

    It is probably something like Hollywoods walk of fame, where you have to pay to get one (or someone does)

    That sounds like a Bud Adams franchise. :sarcasm: The only award that franchise should get is for Jeff Fisher's leadership.

    What a phoney award......

    Ahh yes to the good ethics of Pac Man Jones the Strip Clubin/drug dealer and Albert Haynesworth the head stomper, what great role models in the sports world......

    Right on.

    Ya know the only reason he got this award is not because of anything he has done in the last 20 years but because he was one of the original owners in the AFL So in other words it is relagated to the status of the Nobel Peace prize, a bunch of political BS made worthless becayse of not going with the true meaning of what was said to be the true meaning of the award.

    I was thinking the same thing when I read this, Spec.

    The guy's a true asshat, literally. The thing on his head resembles the fur off a Water Buffalo's ass.

    Dud did establish new standards for holding a city hostage, playing one against the other to spend tens of millions on stadium renovations, only to sellout to the highest bidder in the end. I remember a time when HONOR was about loyalty (as in the city of Houston and it's fans), honesty (nothing in Bud's history to reference being honest, as he's been swine from day one), and integrity (*cough*).

    They are giving it to the The Rug because his massive coronary might erupt any moment now and they want to give an original AFL owner props before he passes, IMO. It is PC garbage at it's finest.
