Yo. You Live in Houston, Not Tennessee.

The Arizona Cardinals have gotten kind of tired of having their stadium invaded by Dallas Cowboy fans whenever the two teams play – not that I can blame them because the only thing worse than a Cowboy fan is a New York Yankee fan. Their solution is simple: if Cowboy fan wants to buy a ticket for the Cowboys/Cardinals game in Phoenix on October 12, then Cowboy fan has to buy a ticket to the preseason game against the New Orleans Saints on August 7.

I would like to see the Houston Texans adopt a similar type policy. And I wanted enacted toward people wearing Tennessee Titans jerseys. I don’t care if it’s a game where the Titans are playing in Houston, or if it’s just somebody wearing an Eddie George jersey for any game. I think the Texans should still sell these people tickets, but once they try to walk into the stadium, I think IDs should be checked, and if the wearer of the jersey doesn’t have a Tennessee license, then the person is to not be allowed entry nor is refunded his money.

The number of Titans fans in Houston has always bugged me. I know, the Titans used to be the Oilers, but Bud Adams was a prick and moved the team, and as such, they no longer deserve our support. Only people as stupid as Oiler fans would keep cheering for the Titans. Do you think anybody in Cleveland goes around wearing Baltimore Ravens gear? That person would probably have his ass kicked. And I doubt seriously the people of Baltimore were cheering for the Colts to win the Super Bowl a couple of years ago.

The Oilers didn’t want anything to do with you, so you should want nothing to do with them. And Vince Young being on the Titans still doesn’t excuse the wearing of the jersey. Wear a damn UT jersey or something. Just stop wearing the Titans gear.

I’m serious, Texans. Are you listening? If any non-Tennessee-living Titan fan tries to get into Reliant Stadium, please kick their Bud Adams loving ass out of the stadium. – John Royal
