    Difference.....Ravens WILLINGLY left the Browns name and history in Cleveland. Charlotte wanted the Hornets name back because the expansion team owner named them the after himself (Bobcats). When he sold to Jordan, the Hornets name became available because NO wanted to change their name to something local. The Hornets were relocated because of BAD attendance. Jordan wanted to change the name because the Bobcats were WORSE in performance and the Hornets did have SOME history there. NONE of those applies to the Oilers.

    As for Superstars, Larry Johnson and Alonzo Morning are nothing to get excited about for Hornets' history.

    Only so many colors a team can chose. Red as primary and Yellow were out, Orange as a primary and blue were out. A primary Blue was really the only choice...but it couldn't be the same as the Oilers/Titans (Columbia). People seem to forget that people HATED Columbia Blue. For MANY years people wanted the Oilers to change for a darker blue or red as a the primary color. Again, nostalgia clouds memories.

    I LOVED the Oilers - let it remain in the past, we are developing the same love for the Texans.

    I honestly would not mind using the Oiler name and colors for a retro game. Other than that I'm happy with the Texans.

    Ok, you're right and I'm wrong about my subjective opinion.

    Your opinion. You liked Columbia blue. I liked it too. Fine. However, there were MANY who disagreed with you and me.

    I think I was unclear..........the only reason I think he'd be smiling is because Houstonian's want something he took away from us with no intention of ever giving back. In other words, even in death, he's making people here miserable. I say don't give him the satisfaction. F him......and the Oiler name.

    This thread reads like a bunch of angry old men. Babies born the year that the Oilers left Houston are of drinking age. Most people born from 1990 on (now 28 years old) have zero clue about the Oilers and don't care. Quit living in the past.

    Loved the Oilers. Losing bastards.

    But yeah that ship has sailed. But I do miss them and wish they had never left.

    That ship has not only sailed - it's resting alongside the Titanic (where it belongs). Don't miss the team nor the asshole who owned it.

    Um...they were not successful. Record speaks for itself. They have been more successful in Possum Holler (Nashville). They went to the Superbowl, had more division titles...better records.

    If you want to root for the Oilers, go watch Pearland High School at "the Rig". Different Colors and Logo, but you get to root for a team with the Oilers name.....lol.

    Texans is a terrible name for a professional team. So non creative. Sounds like Pop Warner.
