    My goodness I own so much crap - we are talking like 10-15 jerseys, shirts, jacket, wind breaker, mugs, car flags, flip flop, magnets, posters, hand signed stuff (which I had to pay premium for b/c i've never been to a game or anything like that), money clip, plaques, signs, figures, cards, car dice and actually so much more I just cant remember anymore....

    also notice the plural nature of most of the things listed, I went Titan crazy every time i'd go to the States....

    I stopped buying Titans stuff so long ago though.

    Recently I bought the Game Pass (Follow your Team) for $109 and I've been rewarded with a 1-4 start...

    Till I can buy something that says SuperBowl Champions, I'm done financially supporting the team.

    I really like Game Pass and no matter what I love watching my team, so I might keep getting that, but yeah nothing else. But I doubt that any of that goes to the Titans tbh...

    Don't underestimate people, you have no idea what potential buyer may turn up and decide to move the Titans. I'm not saying it's bound to happen, just that it is possible.

    You're right. How can you be so right about this, and defend our O-Line at the same time?

    Titan flip flops huh? I'm trying to think what my weirdest Titans thing is......

    I think it would have to be a giant stainless steal grilling spatula.

    Every year I have the same routine, buy the sideline gear, buy a jersey and fly out to Tennessee to catch a game and visit the family. This year I bought the sideline gear and scheduled a trip out there to catch a game, however I've been struggling with if I really want to go this year. Kinda hard to invest all that money into a team that doesn't seem to care. I went to the San Diego game this year and that was bad enough. I kinda like JCs idea of going and becoming one of the boo birds if this crapfest continues though. We shall see. And of course my yearly subscription to Sunday Ticket.

    Yes you have. How can you say that? You just got done posting that we can be successful with the way they are playing just a few minutes ago!

    Last time I was out there my wife bought a plush T-Rac and had him sign it. That's my strangest Titans possession.

    The only reason there were stadium upgrades is because this is the first year we haven't sold out. Having season tix was never a question in my mind even during the rebuilding. There was always some sign that better things were to come. But now I don't even have faith that Dumb and Dumber can figure out how to staff a winning team- be it players, coaches, staff etc.

    The organizatio blew it with the way they handled the Munchak hire. Don't anybody tell me that the timing wasn't a planned move to hand it off to Munchak. His staff selections were limited, but he hasn't shown ANY sign that he holds staff accountable for results.

    We blew the past few drafts IMO. Particularly with our 2nd/3rd round picks. Too many projects- too many failures. We have blown FA for years IMO.

    This franchise is 3-5 years away from fielding a decent product even if there is a complete overhaul at the END of this year. As painful as it is to say it, I just can't spend any more money to give the tickets away to friends, employees when I don't even enjoy going to the games any more. I used to not mind being raped by the outrageous expense because it was such an exhilarating high to think about upcoming games, new players, tailgating etc. The couple of years it has become like getting gut-punched each week. We can't beat the Patriots EVER. We can't beat the Steelers- HARDLY EVER, chargers etc.

    Bud you greedy *******- you don't another nickel from me.
