Illustration for article titled Titans Owner Bud Adams Didnt Seem To Know He Lost $8 Million In A Team/Coach Divorce

Right after the Tennessee Titans confirmed, via one-sentence press release, that it had parted ways with coach Jeff Fisher after 16 seasons, the news seemed to surprise Bud Adams. When a reporter from The Tennessean called, he said ...

"Where did you hear that? I better check on that. I can't talk about it now. I have to talk to my people there. I haven't talked to them today. I really can't talk about it now because I don't know what's been said. I want to see what is going on.''


If he wasn't just playing coy with the local beat writer, he found out he was $8 million lighter minutes later.

The loss of a notable stash and a decent 142-120 tenure didn't much matter to Tennesseean reader "pinkslipfisher":

Yaaaaahoooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and Yiiiipppeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm about to wet myself with glee - it's about d@mn time.
