The San Antonio Texans were a Canadian Football League (CFL) team that played in the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, in the 1995 CFL season. They had relocated from Sacramento, California, where the team had been called the Sacramento Gold Miners. After relocating, the team still had the same ownership in Fred Anderson and the same staff, including General Manager Dan Bass and Head Coach Kay Stephenson. The Gold Miners/Texans franchise played three seasons (five if the Texans' WLAF incarnation, the Sacramento Surge, is also counted) before folding in 1995. They were the southernmost team in CFL history.

“Socialism can only arrive by bicycle.”
