THE REAL BUD BOWL IS GOING TO BE IN NASHVILLE
Published January 19, 1996
Oilers Owner Bud Adams gave a brief update Thursday at the NFL owners meetings on his plans to move his team to Nashville. Following the update, most NFL owners said Adams "easily will be able to get" approval to move, according to the HOUSTON CHRONICLE. At the advice of Oilers officials, Adams had no comment. But Raiders Owner Al Davis noted, "My sense is that the consensus is in favor of Bud. Houston is doing nothing to block the move, and Bud is part of the old guard that tends to take care of itself." Houston Mayor Bob Lanier has said if the Oilers leave and the NFL doesn't give Houston another team, the city may challenge the NFL as a monopoly (John Williams, HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 1/19).
