Houston Texans Brought to You by Adult Video?

The NFL has decided to allow teams to have sponsorship messages or logos on their practice jerseys. This apparently is in an effort to increase advertising revenue for the teams. Sounds like an interesting idea. What local Houston business wouldn't like that idea? But an adult video company? reported that Zero Tolerance Entertainment, which makes and markets adult videos, claims that it has approached the Houston Texans regarding the availability of marketing space.

Last week, the Texans acknowledged that they are seeking to take advantage of the new rule that allows NFL teams to allow corporate logos and/or messages to infiltrate the official team practice jerseys.

In a press release circulated by Scott Stein, the company's director of marketing, Zero Tolerance claimed that an offer involving "several zeros" was made to the Texans.

"Every team in the league starts the season by saying, that they'll have Zero Tolerance for losing," the press release states. "While our offer may not be taken seriously, there is some undeniable synergy between the NFL and the name of our company."

This brings so many odd thoughts to my mind. I wonder what logo would be on the jersey? Would the advertise the latest porn flick? Would they feature the latest "star"? I am sure this is not the only offer the team is considering, right Mr. McNair? Then again, what do I know? It would get people talking about our Houston Texans, right?
