They should still be the Oilers today.

 

Right.  If nicknames names that do not match their location names such as the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the ever-popular Utah Jazz are considered acceptable, then the Tennessee Oilers could certainly have remained.

Big difference is that teams like the Lakers, Dodgers, and Jazz happened in the 60s and 70s.  Oilers moved in 1998 when new branding was a more popular option.

The Houston Oilers is a classic franchise with a classic identity. If the Memphis Grizzlies are a team, then the Tennessee Oilers should definitely still be a team. 

 

And who thought the Tennessee Titans would be better for branding than the Tennessee Oilers?
