    Ive been reading A LOT in the media claiming that Bud is a "meddling owner", drawing comparisons to Jerry Jones and Al Davis, but over the last 15 years I really haven't seen it. Other than forcing the team to draft McNair out of little Alcorn State over Kerry Collins out of Penn (who Fisher wanted) and VY over Matt Lineart (who is now a 3rd string QB for THE TEXANS :ha:) he has relatively been quiet compared to owners in more major markets.

    He asked that VY be put in once the season was going down hill in 06 and 09, but save for the QB situation he hasnt said much at all. There are plenty of times where he would have been more than validated in speaking out (the entire 2003 draft, Peter Sirmon, LaMont Thompson, all the terrible corners we drafted, how terrible we draft after the 3rd round for the last decade, inability to draft a decent WR save before Britt, Randy Moss NOT SEEING THE FIELD AT ALL).

    Can anyone give any examples of how he has meddled other than when we were drafting a highly paid QB with a top pick in McNair and VY? :irked:

    The media is simply a couple of guys who own a sports station. That's this "media" that we talk about. They don't always represent the opinion of the public and they're not always right. They barely even know the names of the players on our team and now all of a sudden they're experts of the Titans?

    We all know how credible America's "media" is right now. And I don't care what station you watch.

    Too involved? A meddler? H3!! I would say that the big knock on Bud is that he isn't involved enough. You would think that Fisher owns this team.

    I wouldn't call Bud senile. He's the reason we had a shot at playoffs in '06 and in '09. He saved us from Fisher.

    Let's hope he saves us from Fisher for good this time.

    We really have no idea how often Bud Adams is in Jeff Fisher's ear. Think about it... Jeff Fisher is relatively quiet when it comes to in house affairs. We see other coaches for the Raiders, Cowboys, and Redskins vent to the media and we see Davis, Jones and Snyder expose themselves to the media. Bud Adams may be a thorn in Jeff's side for all we know. Jeff isn't about to let on about it. Just think about it.

    thanx for the links... but as i figured they're all about one or two situations and dont really paint a good picture of how he's "meddling"

    bipolar: my thing is, its not up to fisher when and if we hear about bud being " in his ear"... its not like fisher called a conference and told everyone what bud said or did, yet we still know all about it. i would imagine they have other conversations but if he was meddling we'd hear about it just has we have in both the VY scenerios...
