    easy now cowboy. that's conjecture. i've heard adams tell his side of it on all-access. he settled for houstons offer. he went out and looked at jacksonville, sure, but his intentions were to leave the team in houston, which he did for another ten years. jacksonville offered him the moon and stars. houston didn't give him what he wanted at that time, so he settled, kinda like staying in a bad marriage. bud adams loves texas and houston. that's why he lives there to this day. he moved the team to this area because he had a feel for what tennesseeans are made of. He worked out of this area at an earlier time in his life. he felt good about moving his team here. that's what you don't get man. ultimately, it's his team, and if he wants to move it for it's own good that's up to him.

    Seriously that deserves a 10% flag.

    Can anyone else hear that? The last ounce or respect I had for The Goat floating away.

    haha, I apologize if you were an oiler fan. They weren't a very popular squad, especially for bandwagon jumping 10-11 year olds like I was.

    He moved the team there for the money and still lives in Houston. I truely hope he has a very, very long life and continues to run the team HIS way. I also wish Y'all could get him to get out of Texas. He is dragging the states rep. down. He is even quoted as saying he wishes he still had the team here. Thankfully Y'all are stuck with him now.

    Seriously Adams is dragging the states rep down? That is the guy you chose to pick out of the plethora of others you could have chosen?

    Before you go throwing words around like a team that “sucks” maybe you should take a look at the Texans history and winning percentage. Yeah this is not baseball and that is not good.

    And what happened to our friendly Bizarro Overalls?

    You know the one when asked:

    you replied with:

    Your ways frighten and confuse me but one thing I do know, is Houston fans let down Mr. Adams and the Oilers and it cost them a soon to be super bowl appearance and the worship of a bottom feeding team.

    classic exapmle of what a bull crap article this is

    dude, adams called bredesen up on the phone and introduced himself as bud adams, owner of the Houston Oilers. bredesen thought it was a crank call. he hung up on him. true story. it may have been a desperation move on adams' part but it's not like bredeson had any idea that adams was looking at tennessee when adams made first contact. that's where it's at. this article is just mostly opinion. It's so skewed it tetters on bogus.

    i'd like to see where this "quote" of yours is published saying that adams wishes he never moved or whatever. smells like hooey. he may wish that he could have worked something out and that houston would have built him that great big new monument to pro football ya'll have there in houston. that's all fine and good. it's just so sad and pathetic that you had to run the guy out on a rail and make his team play in some craker shanty.

    it took adams leaving for houston to open their eyes. you left the guy little choice. you (houstonians) refused to buy his tickets because you didn't want to watch his team play in a p.o.s. stadium and the public was too cheap, greedy, or hard up to finace a modern one.

    if the texans were "winners", would you even care?
    does this trouble you so because they suck balls?
