NASHVILLE -- Titans owner Bud Adams, who helped found the American Football League an
NASHVILLE -- Titans owner Bud Adams, who helped found the American Football League and whose battles for players helped lead to the merger with the NFL, has died. Jabari Parker Jersey . He was 90. The team announced Monday that Adams had died, saying he "passed away peacefully from natural causes." The son of a prominent oil executive, Adams built his own energy fortune and founded the Houston Oilers. He moved the team to Tennessee in 1997 when he couldnt get the new stadium he wanted in Houston. The franchise, renamed the Titans, in 2000 reached the Super Bowl that Adams had spent more than three decades pursuing. Coach Mike Munchak said Adams was willing to spend money to help his team win, remembering how he ordered the Titans to chase free agent Peyton Manning in March 2012. The Titans also spent more than $100 million this off-season on players, and Munchak said their challenge now will be winning the Super Bowl in his memory -- the one item missing from Adams legacy. "Thatll be our challenge going forward," Munchak said. Funeral plans have yet to be announced. Munchak said the Titans will decide later how to remember their founder. Adams 409 wins were the most of any current NFL owner. He notched his 400th career win in the 2011 season finale when his Titans defeated the team that replaced his Oilers in Houston, the Texans. His franchise made 21 playoff appearances in 53 seasons, eighth among NFL teams since 1960. "I consider Bud one of the founders of the game of professional football because of his role in helping to create the American Football League," Dallas owner Jerry Jones said in a statement. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell called Adams a pioneer and innovator. "As a founding owner of the American Football League that began play in 1960, Bud saw the potential of pro football and brought the game to new cities and new heights of popularity, first in Houston and then in Nashville," Goodell said in a statement. Kenneth Stanley Adams Jr. was born in Bartlesville, Okla., to the future chief executive of Phillips Petroleum Co., K.S. "Boots" Adams. Adams joined Dallas oilman Lamar Hunt on Aug. 3, 1959, when they announced the AFL would begin competing with the NFL at a news conference in Adams office. Adams founded one of the new leagues charter franchises. The NFL retaliated by placing the Cowboys in Dallas and tried to get into Houston, but Adams held the lease to the one available stadium. "I wanted to be the only pro team," Adams said in a 2002 interview with The Associated Press. He won a major battle with the NFL in June 1960, shortly before the AFLs debut, when a judge ruled Louisiana State Heisman Trophy winner Billy Cannon -- who signed with the Oilers underneath the goalposts after the Sugar Bowl that year -- was their property despite having later signed with the NFLs Los Angeles Rams. "It was a big step for us," Adams said. The Oilers won the first two AFL titles and reached the championship game four times during the 1960s. In 1968, the Oilers became the first indoor football team when they moved into the 3-year-old Astrodome. Meanwhile, Adams quietly became one of the nations wealthiest oilmen as his ADA Oil Co. evolved into the publicly traded Adams Resources & Energy Inc., a Fortune 500 company based in Houston. His business interests included farming and ranching in Texas and California, cattle feeding, real estate and automobile sales. He also was a major collector of western art and Indian artifacts and maintained a private gallery at his corporate headquarters. "He was very passionate about his football team," Rams coach Jeff Fisher said of his former boss on 104.5 The Zone WGFX-FM. Adams convinced Tampa Bay owner Hugh Culverhouse to trade him the rights to Heisman Trophy-winning running back Earl Campbell in 1978. The Campbell-led teams reached two straight AFC title games, only to lose to eventual Super Bowl winner Pittsburgh each time. The Oilers flamed out of the playoffs early in 1980 and Adams fired popular coach Bum Phillips, a move that permanently alienated him from many fans of the teams "Luv Ya Blue" era. Phillips died Friday, also at the age of 90. Adams complained about the Astrodome in 1987 and toured the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville scouting a possible move before getting the 10,000 extra seats he wanted in Houston. The Oilers had their longest run of success in the late 1980s and early 1990s after signing Warren Moon in 1984. They became best known for blowing a record 32-point lead in a playoff game at Buffalo on Jan. 3, 1993 -- Adams 70th birthday. Adams began railing about the aging Astrodome shortly afterward. When he moved his team, Adams continued to live and work in Houston. Renamed the Titans, his franchise reached its lone Super Bowl after the 1999 season only to lose to the Rams 23-16 when Kevin Dyson was tackled at the St. Louis 1-yard line as time expired. The Titans made a second AFC championship game after the 2002 season as part of six playoff berths, the last in 2008. His wife Nancy died in 2009. He is survived by daughters Susie Smith and Amy Strunk, and seven grandchildren. Another son, Kenneth Stanley Adams III, died in 1987 at age 29. Jabari Parker Bucks Jersey .

ATLANTA -- Tiger Woods and Henrik Stenson, the top two seeds in the FedEx Cup, could not have been more different in the opening round of the Tour Championship. Stenson hardly missed a shot on the front nine. He had such control over his game that six of his first seven iron shots were 10 feet or closer to the hole. He converted five of them for birdies, added a 5-iron from 223 yards to 4 feet for one last birdie on the par-3 18th, and wound up with a 6-under 64 and a one-shot lead at East Lake. Tiger Woods was the model of frustration. He missed a short birdie putt on the opening hole that set the tone for a most unusual day. When it was over, Woods failed to make a birdie for only the seventh time in his PGA Tour career -- three of them at East Lake. Woods opened with a 73, nine shots behind. "Its a nice feeling to hit those kind of shots playing with the worlds best player," Stenson said. "Normally, its him who does it to everyone else, but it was kind of nice to throw a couple at him. We know he didnt have the best of days, and hes going to fight hard to try to come back into the tournament. Its still a long way to go, but its always nice to perform the way I did when youre playing with the worlds best player." Woods walked off the course without speaking to reporters. Perhaps he could learn from Stenson how to cope with a frustrating day on the golf course. Or maybe not. "I dont think Im the right person," Stenson said. What made Stensons round so remarkable was that just three days ago, his emotions were boiling. Angry at the way he was playing -- and the fact he had to be at Conway Farms north of Chicago for a Monday finish brought on by rain -- that he smashed his driver into the ground so hard that the head snapped out. Then, he took out his frustrations by damaging his locker. And that was just one tournament after winning the Deutsche Bank Championship. "I really knew I had to be in a good frame of mind coming out there if I wanted to play good golf this week," he said. "As some of you noticed, I wasnt that on Monday when I finished up in Chicago. So it was a good turnaround mentally. I stayed very level-headed -- kept the head on, both myself and drivers, and played a great round of golf." More than feeling better about his attitude, Stenson was helped by feeling no pain in his left wrist. He suspects he slept it on wrong last weekend, and it reached a point where it hurt to hold a toothbrush. Rashad Vaughn Bucks Jersey. He played only nine holes of practice -- the front nine -- on Tuesday and iced his wrist and took anti-inflammatories. It seemed to have worked. The biggest change was his attitude. Stenson is known for public displays of frustrations -- remember that poor tee marker at Carnoustie in 2007? -- but this was peculiar because he had just won the Deutsche Bank Championship in his previous tournament. That capped off an amazing summer that began with four straight tournaments in the top 3, including two majors and a World Golf Championship. He said he apologized to the club and told the locker room attendants to keep in contact, presumably so he can pay for the repairs. Why so much anger so soon? "I can tell you dont have much experience with Swedes, do you?" Stenson said, handling it with his dry humour. "No, Ill tell you Ive always been a bit of a hot-head, and I just havent been able to get any rest. I was looking forward to that Monday back home and lying on the couch -- the kids in school and me just doing nothing, and I ended up playing golf again on that Monday. I was just tired, and I pushed myself over the edge there. "Thats not the best place to be and not the best frame of mind to play good golf," he said. "Im really delighted with the change I made to today." Stenson had a one-shot lead over Masters champion Adam Scott, who deals with his frustrations internally. He was irritated by missing the green three times with a wedge, thus wasting good birdie chances, and missing a 6-foot birdie putt on the par-5 ninth to stay 1-over at the turn. Two shots into the 10th changed everything. Scott made six birdies in seven holes for a 29 on the back nine and a 65. Stenson, the No. 2 seed and the hottest player in golf over the last three months, and Scott (No. 3) only have to win the Tour Championship to capture the FedEx Cup and the $10 million prize. Even more is at stake for Scott, who would be a strong candidate for PGA Tour player of the year if he were to win this week. That would give him three wins, compared with five wins for Woods, though Scott would have a major and the FedEx Cup. "There havent been too many guys who have been in the position the last 12 years to even warrant thinking about it," Scott said. "So its an opportunity that might not come along too often. Im going to be working hard to try and make my case for it."
