    wasn't the original deal a 28 year lease at LP field?? that being said we've got at least 20 more years to watch the team before they move to Franklin or Murphreesboro

    Great theories.

    Until we get either a baseball or NBA team, Davidson county won't be able to afford losing the Titans.

    Tennesseeans are passionate about football. That's why Bud brought the team here.

    I don't think thats the reason Bud brought the team here.
    He brought them here because prior to 1997, Tennessee as a state had no professional sports teams worth speaking off, and Bud knew that there were 6 million tennesseans tired of rooting for college teams or other out of state NFL teams.
    Wow.. what a huge market!

    Plus he was being pissed off by houston officials who were acting like they didn't give a rat's *** whether the team stayed or left since both the city and state were saturated with many other professional teams and Bud was getting the deaf ear.

    Sure, we're passionate about football but thats not the reason Bud gave us the Titans.

    There is a 15 year buyout option in the original agreement.

    If BA pays off the stadium mortgage he can leave at the 15 year mark. Expect metro to pay for some serious upgrades at that time cause the cost of leaving would be minimal to BA.

    By having a pro football team here, many businesses are attracted to being in Nashville. It makes us look more "civilized". It's doubtful we would ever let the Titans leave due to the economics of it all.
