    So Adams started casting a wayward eye around the country, looking for another [url=http://www.buyusacigarettes.com]Newport cigarettes,newport box 100s menthol cigarettes[/url] home, and lo and behold, then-Nashville mayor Phil Bredesen rolled out the red carpet. He spearheaded a May 1996 referendum where Nashville residents, visions of Super Bowls dancing in their heads, voted to bear the brunt of funding for a proposed stadium via property tax increases. At the same time, NFL owners approved Adams’ move to the Volunteer State by a 23-6 margin, with one abstention – the bare minimum needed for the go-ahead.
    Adams played cagey with Oilers fans, the media, and his own players – members of that last Houston Oilers team were getting their updates from the newspaper, if at all – and that led to the awkwardness of three consecutive lame-duck seasons. Houston played its final game in December 1996 before a crowd of barely 15,000.
    “It was handled so poorly,” Hall of Fame offensive lineman Bruce Matthews said. “If anything – I think about the Rams and Chargers – we set an example in how you don’t want to move a franchise. It was a wreck.”

    Plus, there was a problem at the other end of the pipeline. Nashville wouldn’t have its stadium [url=http://www.buyusacigarettes.com]Newport 100's soft pack cigarettes - Cheap Cigarettes Online Sale Shop[/url] ready until the 1998 season. That meant the Oilers would have to find a place to play for two years. Adams initially assumed the team could play in Vanderbilt’s 41,000-seat Dudley Field, but that had a few problems: first, there were none of the skyboxes for that sweet, sweet corporate revenue, and second, the stadium couldn’t sell alcohol, being an NCAA site. (The University of Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium had a tough-to-fill capacity of 102,000; Adams was spooked by the thought of large swaths of empty seats, which turned out to be more than a touch ironic.) Combined, both college stadiums were a no-go.
