    Sure he does. He was a part of THIS franchise wasn't he?

    I don't care that he was at the game. I get it. He lives in Houston, and probably feels detached from the Titans since the move and name change, but the fact remains that he was a part of this franchise, and has nothing to do with the Texans.

    If he wants to be a Texans fan, then thats cool though. I don't really care for the guy that much anyway. He was a great player though.

    I get all of that, though I would expect him to have some ties to Bud, Munchak, Matthews, etc...

    I was shocked that the Texans were honoring him. We need to 1) become kickass and 2) wear Oilers throwbacks every time we play the Texans.

    I was more taken aback by his physical condition. This truly is a brutal game we play.

    We should have just let Texas become north Mexico.

    The man is from Texas. Played at Texas in college and Houston as a pro. it shouldn't surprise anyone that he's a Texans fan.

    he came too Nashville for some lame arsed ceremony.

    The vast majority of Tennessee based Titan fans could not care less about the Oilers history and Campbell made it clean he wasnt comming back.

    It is what it is .
