Adams has already complained that the Oilers' new 11-acre training site, built as part of his deal for reduced stadium rent, in the Nashville suburb of Bellevue is too small and will have to be replaced (presumably at the taxpayers' expense). He couldn't have picked a better way to renew the greedy-owner sentiment that arose during last year's citywide referendum on the new stadium.
Most of the Oilers have come to accept, if not embrace, the Music City. Donnalley has bought a house in Nashville, Del Greco likes the town, and cornerback Anthony Dorsett has found a gig on the side, hosting a radio show every Tuesday night during the season at Planet Hollywood.
But if the Oilers run off three more wins in a row, though, if George piles up a few more 200-yard games, they might not have to be Nashville's club or Memphis's loaner at all. They might truly be Tennessee's team.
