HEY HOUSTON, THIS BUD MAY BE WITH YOU FOR ANOTHER YEAR
Published March 13, 1996
Oilers Owner Bud Adams is optimistic that the team would generate a "good turnout" at the Astrodome if it is forced to stay in Houston for another year. According to this morning's HOUSTON CHRONICLE, with Adams' move to Nashville currently in limbo because of a May referendum in TN and Houston Mayor Bob Lanier's request that the NFL guarantee another the city team before allowing the Oilers to leave, the chances of a lame-duck Oiler season are growing. John Williams reports club officials are banking on the popularity of second-year QB Steve McNair, an attractive schedule and the possibility of a playoff berth to attract fans (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 3/13).
