HOUSTON - One might wonder why Houston never came close to getting another super bowl after 2004. That was the obligatory one that was part of the deal with the NFL for Bob McNair getting the franchise.

The reason Houston has lost out since then is that the owners vote on where the game will be and there was a riff about revenue sharing between the big money teams like the Texans, Redskins, Cowboys and Giants.

The teams that made less money like Buffalo, Jacksonville, and St. Louis, the have nots, wanted a bigger piece from the haves. Bob McNair was one of the leaders of the haves who didn’t want to share with the have nots.

The smaller revenue teams would never vote for Houston to get the Super Bowl because of that.

However, that might be changing...
