OILERS MOVE: CLEVELAND MAKES NOISE WHILE HOUSTON IS SILENT
Published January 18, 1996
While NFL owners are dealing with numerous faxes and calls from angry Browns fans, many said they have not heard anything similar from Houston. As a result, according to the HOUSTON CHRONICLE, it is likely the Oilers will be allowed to leave. Giants Co-Owner Robert Tisch: "The attitude is that the city of Houston doesn't seem overwhelmed that they [the Oilers] will not be there. Their mayor hasn't stood up. It is up to Houston to solve their problem" (John Williams, HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 1/18).
