while reading the cnnsi.com article, it informed me that it will bring football back to Texas' largest city. I had no idea Houston was. Is this in population (I assume) or in land area? I thought Dallas was bigger, after all, it has teams for all four major sports (stars, cowboys, mavericks, rangers) and Houston has two teams (soon to be three, right now the Rockets and the Astros). So is Houston largest in Pop or land area? and why does dallas have twice the sports team in a sports crazed state?

The what?

What an incredibly STUPID name for a sports team! Who thought of that s***? ...the owner's six year-old daughter? ...No, I bet it was probably the same people who came up with the new Delta livery.

Kewl. I can just see the trend developing. Why, just the other day, I heard Joe Steinbrenner announce he's changing the name of the New York Yankees to the (surprise)... NEW YORK NEW YORKERS!

Give me a freakin' break!

there are almost 16 million people in the LA metro area and they don't have a team. This is an absolute crime!

That's what LA gets for stealing San Diego's basketball team a few decades ago!! How well the Clippers have been doing lately, though, should be a punishment in itself. 

I don't think it would be good for LA to have a sports team because that plays outside because all of the players would get sick from the smog (LA was just renamed the smoggiest city in the nation)

ehh, seven_fifty7, you are immature, AND do some research. In the early days of football, there were the Dallas Texans, a beloved team in Texas. Well, they were moved to KC and named the chiefs. Just like the Cleveland Browns (I am surprised you dont go on and on about what a "brown" is) who lost their team several years ago, only to have it back now. The Houston Texan story is the same thing, only it took longer, and Houston needed a team, not Dallas.

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

Doesn't Los Angeles have:

LA Dodgers
LA Kings
LA Lakers

I know you lost the Rams...but that just leaves you shy of one of the four sport franchises right?

According to what was said above, Houston only had NBA, and MLB franchises...so now who deserves it more?

Sammy

P.S. I would've preferred Houston get an NHL team instead

The Texans logo is way cool.


I like the name, although I thought the 'Stallions' would have been cool (one of the other choices).

The NFL already has plenty of horse mascots though (Broncos, Colts).

BTW, 'Stallions' was going to be St. Louis' name if they got an expansion team back in '93. The team went to Jacksonville instead.



An unexamined life isn't worth living.

The name IS stupid! I don't give a @#$%& if the "early days of football" had the "Texarkana Texans!" It's stupid, stupid, stupid!

And as for DeltaRNOdc10 (or whatever the hell you call yourself), *I* need to do some research??? ...Aren't YOU the one who thought "Dallas is way bigger than Houston?" I thought every geography idiot from the 4th grade knew that Houston is #4 sizewise in the nation. What the hell does *size* of a city have to do with having a pro sports team anyway?

And as for the Cleveland Browns, I bet that team's name derived from the color of horse manure. -Of which stinks just like the city of Cleveland itself. Sounds logical to me.

NEW YORK ROX, BABY!!!!

The Houston Longhorns should be more like it. What's with the Logo?

I would have preferred the Houston Toros (Bad News Bears), they already have the "toro" on the helmet, or the Houston Apollos (Comets, Rockets, Astros...).

Houston will also be getting a Hockey team very soon, don't know the name though.

TO CLEAR THINGS UP:

1. Houston is bigger than Dallas. It's the 4th largest city in the nation (NYC, LA, Chicago, Houston).

The logo and colors look nice, but the name sucks. The Apollos sounds too much like the Titan, the Stallions sounds too much like the Broncos.

yes, Trvlr is right. AND I didnt display ignorance when I admitted I didnt know a Houston was bigger than Dallas. Yet you displayed outright ignorance, in your feeble knowledge of football (MOST 4TH GRADERS KNOW!!!) you blasted an organization and two teams (texans and browns) of which you know NOTHING about. I am not the one who was ignorant, and I didnt respond like a fourth grader either.

Good logo, dumb name. Also, Houston is not going to get an NHL team. NHL has overexpansion as it is, and have you seen the sheet of ice the Aeros play on? It is almost concrete. If the NHL thinks Reunion is bad because of humidity, Houston will be 10 times as worse.
Also the Cleveland Browns got their name from the last name of one of the original owners.
Why i think the name Houston Wildcatters would have been more appropriate as that is a true texas term, also it would be an orginal name; but the Bull logo does look neat.

I wouldnt have liked Apollos much, I like Stallions, though. I wonder what division they will play in. Probably AFC West, if they dont reallign the whole league. AFC Central, where the Oilers were, has 6 teams, the most for any division in the NFL. Every other team has 5 except for the AFC West which has the Broncos, Raiders, Chargers and Seahawks. So my bet is the AFC West.

Actually, the NFL wants to rearrange the league so the Texans will play in a conference with the Steelers (old Oilers-Steelers rivlary), and the Titans, along with a few others.

yep, as I said, they will probably be in the AFC West if the league doesnt reallign the divisions which means rearranging the teams into divisions and conferences with favorable matchups.

My apologies go all out to the residents of Cleveland for my above derogatory remarks about that town. I actually think Cleveland is a decent place.

The nasty SKYTEAM guy and the little DeltaRNO-L1011 character started ganging up on me for no reason. I felt had no choice but to defend myself against such unwarrranted abuse.

I think I'll take the 'better man' approach and just ignore such hostilities from now on.

can you read? you are not much of an aviation enthusiast if you cant tell the difference between an md-80, a DC-10, and an L1011. This is sad..... We didnt start 'ganging up' on you. You blasted the Texans, and then the Browns, we simply defended the teams. If you call someone pulling out a gun on a burglar for self defense "Ganging up" on him, then you need help.

DeltaRNOmd-11:

Little one, I pretty much can tell the difference between any commercial airliner, I'm sure better than you. The only "differences" I can't tell is whether you're a simple jackass, or tempermental numbskull. It probably doesn't matter, because you're clearly both.

I can't believe I even wasted my keystrokes responding to your juvenile diatribes. In my opinion, I think you need to be deleted from the club because you apparently cannot control your emotions.

You'll no longer get a response from me again, as I have already mistakenly stooped down to your level one time too many.

Grow up.
