I mistakenly thought my update text said "bum Philips passed away" and was kind of like, yeah...I know? I got this update a few days ago,

It all makes sense now of course, I need to read more carefully. Weren't they both 90, too? Because that would also explain my confusion.

"bum philips has passed away at age 90"

"Bud Adams has pased away at age 90"

Mindless rambling aside, RIP Bud.

Bud Adams was an original AFL owner in 1960 with Lamar Hunt. His Oilers team played in the first two championship games with George Blanda at QB.

It's sad to hear that another original AFL owner and "Foolish Club" member has passed.

This has been a terrible week for the Titans. First Phillips and now Adams. Two great parts of our team history both will be missed.


Do Titans fans really associate with Bum Phillips? Do they embrace Oiler's history as their own despite the geographic relocation?

The ones that adopted them when they came to Nashville don't, for the most part. The ones that are holdovers from the Oilers era do.

I'm not happy he's dead, but a good portion of my disdain for the Titans dies with him. Now it's just "healthy rivalry with a side of respect" disdain. I would have preferred him just sell the team or something. Condolences to those Titan fans that cared about the guy.
