I want a change at QB, but that is crossing the line in such a big way. Disgraceful.

*Breaking news*
http://houston.cbslocal.com/2013/10/08/fans-accost-matt-schaub-at-his-home/

A source close to law enforcement told The Fred and Ted Show late Tuesday evening that Houston Police were contacted by the NFL after fans approached Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub at his home and berated him for his recent poor play.

No arrests were made.

“A fan went to his house and told him off,” said the source, adding that another person “took pictures of his family,” which were allegedly posted on Facebook. Fortunately, neither Schaub nor anyone in his family was hurt.

The irate fans left on their own accord before police could respond, and it’s believed Schaub and the Texans contacted NFL Security which asked for assistance from the Houston Police Department after the incident, according to the source.

People have to be able to seperate Matt the quarterback from Matt the private citizen and family man. For those attending this Sunday's game, please show Matt that not all of Houston is as classless as these "fans" and give him a warm ovation...or at least try not to boo too loudly.

The other day the chronicle had a house for sale on front webpage saying you could be neighbors with a Texan. It was 2 doors down from Schaub. It listed Schaub in the pictures. His house was listed on HCAD under his and Wife's name at that time. Tonight it's listed as CURRENT OWNER on HCAD. Kinda sad people have to take it too far like that.

These aren't the acts of a sports fan. They are the acts of incredibly stupid people. Their names and pics should be released to the public. They give real sports fans a bad name. People like this should be exposed. Like the guy who threw a beer on Carrs wife or the people who were yelling racial slurs at warren Moon and his family. They deserve to publicly identified and ridiculed.

There is nothing un-classy about booing. It is a valid and accepted part of fan behavior. I think this fan crossed the line by going to Schaub's house but I have to admit I am happy to see Texans fans showing more aggression and being more vocal in voicing their displeasure.

For FAR too long, Houston fans and more importantly media have been far too accomodating and accepting of mediocrity. Teams and players in Houston have gotten away with crap that fans and media in Philly, NYC, Boston and Chicago would NEVER accept.

NEVER cross that line between a game and a mans family. He is a husband, father, and somebody's son before he is our QB. Those fans deserve to get their a55's beat. Period.

I am embarrassed by this.

Don't get your panties in a wad. Any negativity that Schaub gets from people here in Houston is mild compared to the **** he would get on the streets of Phillly, NYC or Boston if he played like he has for us for their teams. The people here in Houston are nice.

To be honest to you, this story kind of smells like b.s. to me, I wouldn't be surprised if the Texans floated this to get people off Schaub's back. This town is rightfully furious with its starting QB and coach.

I am sick of hearing or reading this. Every single Houston media member I have heard this week has called for Schaub to be benched and/or said his days as an NFL starter are over. Eli has 3 more INTs with the same TDs, a miserable completion % and 2 fumbles and the Giants are 0-5. Schaub, Kubiak and the Texans are getting more flak than them.

Eli Manning is a two-time Super Bowl champion with his ticket punched to the Hall of Fame in Canton. I'm sure he can suck for the rest of his career and still be deemed an amazing career. Not so much on stats but winning two championships, against Tom Brady and the Patriots no less, that's all people will remember.

I'm neutral. I hate this wherever it is. I still remember what Mitch Williams endured when he gave up the HR to Joe Carter in 1993. Death threats. same with Grady Little when he left Pedro Martinez in too long. Trust me, I understand how frigging stupid and dangerous fans can be.

Bull****. Last week after Schaub GIVING the game away against the Seahawks you had McLain and his accomplices at the Chron and the *********s at 610 defending Schaub. Only after a game of HISTORIC INEPTITUDE do we get calls to bench Schaub.

I went to college in Philly and lived there for 4 years. The drumbeat to replace Schaub would have been beating loudly after LAST SEASON.

We've had worse happen before unfortunately. I remember there were some drunken and angry Houston fans dumping beer on David Carr's wife and verbally abusing her at a game. Also Dunta Robinson was robbed at gun point at his house but that wasn't based on his play I don't think.

It's starting to get to that point with Matt Schaub. Those same idiot fans are going to run him out of town with malicious hate. They make the rest of us great fans look bad. Schaub is a classy man just like Carr was. It pains me to see such awesome men and their families being treated like this.

I want a change at quarterback but I would love to see Schaub put all of this mess behind him and have a great game on Sunday. He's going to start and we have to support him.

That is total horsesh!t! The fans in NY want both Manning and Coughlin rode out on a rail. They don't give two sh!ts about the 2 Super Bowls. That's in the past. They are now 0-5, and right now, that's all they care about.

I am very close buddies with two diehard G-men fans and neither is on either guy. That second SB cemented their love of both men. They could go 0-16 and they'd likely take it in stride. Lot easier to do that with those 2 recent rings.

I was going to make light of this and say that they should have went to Kubiak's home instead.

However, in all seriousness this is messed up. Sure, on a message board we say things, imply things, joke about things, bash players and at times even interact with others in a way we would never do in person or real life (how many times have you met a message board jerk to find they were really decent people in real life?)

My point being, to really do this is in real life is beyond insane. To literally go to the man's home is a beyond obsessive. We all love sports here however to take it that far means you have greater issues than your favorite team's QB throwing pick 6's every week.

BTW, I lived in Philly even longer TF. While I witnessed a lot of fan on fan violence I never recall hearing about Eagles fans actually going to a player's home in this way.

My freshman year was 1993 the year the Phillies played the Jays in the World Series. Mitch Williams who coughed up the walk-off homer to Joe Carter to hand them the Series had numerous death threats and I think had some **** burned in his yard if I remember correctly.

Personally, I love the passion and intensity of Philly fan. I could relate to them since their teams like Houston's haven't been historically great. The movie Silver Linings Playbook captured the passion they have for their Iggles.

Just to be honest, I will share. On the ride home Sunday evening our little group joked that Schaub probably received a text from Jacoby to hang in there, at least some irate Oakland Southeast fans haven't paid him a home visit. Never in our wildest dreams that what we said would prove to be more than a joke.:)

Seriously, some fans and unfortunately they are the few that get the most publicity need to learn how to separate a game day experience from violent acts. As true of fans that most of us are, none could compare in talent to Schaub, even if he needs to be benched.

Freedom of speech was never an absolute "I can say, anything, anywhere, to anybody, at anytime" concept. since you don't understand that a human's privacy is not a simple "freedom of speech" violation, is okay that I publish your work and home addresses so other posters can yell at you and place pictures of your family to publicly post for not understanding that 'freedom of speech" was largely a concept of the government not making criminals out people who disagrred with the actions of government?

It says ...Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

There's no room for misinterpretation (though our politicians seem to think there is) and implicitly says you can SAY what you want without fear of the government saying you can't. It doesn't limit it to speaking about this or that. It very simply says what it says. But, I digress. If you want to snap shots of me while in public and ridicule me...go for it.

Well, there is a limit, according to the Supreme Court. Imminent lawless action standard, and before that the famous "yelling fire in a crowded theatre" clear and present danger standard.

But I don't think that applies to this situation, anyway. If anything, depending on what happened, Schaub could sue for assault, since as a tort it doesn't require actual physical contact.

Really at the end of the day it's just dicks being dicks. Grounds for civil cases, sure, but not criminal, so I agree with you there.

A sign Schaub hasn't fully assimilated to living in Houston? Not carrying a gun. He has a right to defend his life and his family's against a threat. Not saying shoot to kill, but a knee or foot would send a pretty clear message.

You wanna boo a player? By all means.
You wanna spend $300 and burn a jersey? Your money, knock yourself out.

NEVER cross that line between a game and a mans family. He is a husband, father, and somebody's son before he is our QB. Those fans deserve to get their a55's beat. Period.

I am embarrassed by this.

I'll sign off on this as well. Completely agreed. I'm embarrassed for our fans and our city 99.9% of whom I believe would never do something like this. These guys should be ashamed of themselves and prosecuted.

Football or sports in general is like the giant toy chest of life. It's a fun diversion and we live vicariously through our grid iron hero's and we want them to do well. It lifts our spirits and we have pride in our team and city when they do well.

But in the grand scheme of things it means about as much as a tick on an elephant's rump. Yes, some of us our passionate about it - but at the end of the day win or lose, life goes on. In truth whether the Texans somehow turn around the season and win the SB, or whether they crash and burn and don't win another game means the same. Each day, I get up, go to work, pay my bills and live my life.

And while I might boo, or say something insulting or crass about MS's play, I would never, ever insult MS the man. Like David Carr, I think he is a fine person and family man from everything publicly known. He is just like me - he gets up every day, goes to work, and pays his bills and he does it as well as he can hopefully and I believe that. It's not good enough right now, but I do believe he is trying. And I get that he is very well compensated - but not well compensated enough to have to put up with moron's that cross the line.

There's no room for misinterpretation (though our politicians seem to think there is) and implicitly says you can SAY what you want without fear of the government saying you can't. It doesn't limit it to speaking about this or that. It very simply says what it says. But, I digress. If you want to snap shots of me while in public and ridicule me...go for it.

Oh FFS! This, right here, is why Houston is still seen as a podunk, redneck town. Well, that and the hyperventilating 'fans' that want to destroy the franchise after every loss.

Those sellouts can largely be attributed to folks being happy that the NFL was back in houston...you combine that with us having 1 of the top stadiums in the league at that time & getting to host the SB for the 1st time ever....Those sellouts weren't indicative of true fandom.

In any event, you're only looking at 1 sport....Been over to Minute Maid lately? Yeah, i worked there for a few months & the attendance at those games was pathetic after the 1st month...people were coming out to see stars from the opposing teams moreso than they were coming to see their home town team.

Right now, the hottest ticket in town is to Rockets games....I think we all know why. That's funny considering there was just a story last year or the year before i believe about how fan attendance at rockets games was down something like 60% from the average fan attendance across the NBA..or something to that effect...i remember Charlie P talking about it on the ride home. I suspect that won't be the case this year with all the hype surrounding the Howard acquistion.

Now, for sure, I don't condone this behavior, and I feel somewhat like a bastard for suggesting a conspiracy theory. Apologies if it's not already mentioned in one of the already 5 pages on this thread. In fact, it doesn't even have to be a conspiracy theory...

Now that the story is out there getting public attention, the dumb perps have actually done nothing to further their cause. In fact, it's fair to say, the sympathy gained for Matt Schaub and his family HAS to carry over as a rallying cry from that of his team mates, coaching staff and fan base.

If it is a conspiracy, Gary K is more brilliant than we give him credit for! :kitten:

There is nothing un-classy about booing. It is a valid and accepted part of fan behavior.

We can boo Schaub or we can throw him a rally.

Which one do you think would help our team more...

We can say we support our team but act as if we don't.

Not much different than a player who says he supports his QB, but his actions prove different.

I understand being a Texans fan & not a Matt Schaub fan. I think there are all kinds of reasons to boo & every fan has the right to boo. QB throws his 5th pick 6 in a 5th consecutive game..... it's time to boo. QB throws a TD, it's time to cheer.

To boo him as he comes out of the tunnel, to boo him as he's introduced, to boo him as he walks on the field for the first time...... nah. That's the way you great a Dunta Robinson when he returns to Reliant, or any player who took a crap on your team.

Matt Schaub is most likely starting against the Rams. As fans we can help him get over his thing & cheer him as he walks out of the tunnel, as he's introduced, or as he walks on the field for the first time. Matt wants the same thing we do, to win football games.

I personally think we'll be one game closer to life without Schaub if we show him respect & gratitude for everything he's done in the past. Give him a standing O. It would make it easier for Kubiak to bench him without appearing to kowtow to the whims of the fans.

Never said every team's fan base is loyal, i only meant that Houston sports teams fan bases seem to have a greater concentration of bandwagoners.

the houston comets won 4 consecutive WNBA championships....it did little to get the fans to continue to come out & as a result they skipped town...I know its the WNBA but still...

I ride & listen to sports radio for at least 2 hours a day during my commute to & from work...sometimes its more than that. I can't tell you how many times i hear people call in saying "I'm not a texans fan, but...." or "I want to support this team but..." or "this is why i'm not a texans fan and will never be....." in regards to Houston sports teams.

Every fan base has them, but the only real times i see this city get behind its teams is when they're winning...If they're not winning, you see just as many Cowboys, Titans, Yankees, Red sox & here lately Miami Heat crap as you do Houston sports teams stuff.

I am very close buddies with two diehard G-men fans and neither is on either guy. That second SB cemented their love of both men. They could go 0-16 and they'd likely take it in stride. Lot easier to do that with those 2 recent rings.

I've got a die-hard NYGiants fan working with me. NO ONE was more surprised than he was on either Super Bowl.

This 0-5 start has him thinking they're on track for a third.

Schaub did not throw an awful pass. He threw a pass to his number 1 receiver who would of thought a second string Nickle back who lost his starting job to Asomugha and was only in the game due to injury would jump the route and make a play. His second pick was on a tip pass and got lucky again. Schaub wasn't throwing bad passes his receivers were not making plays.

It's onething to boo him at a game, it crosses the line when they mess with him and his family at his home. Hopefully they catch this guy and prosecute him to the max. Just down right BS.

The Comets were great but you answered your own question as they say with that one.....it's the WNBA. I put no stock in that issue with fans due to that. Not only was it WNBA but the WNBA didn't have nearly the fan base then that it does now (not that they are a huge league but they have grown since then so it would be interesting to see what the fan base would be like today as opposed to back then).

I personally listen to sports radio (specifically 610) for literally 8 hours a day M-F at my desk at work all day. So of course I hear nothing but the same thing you mentioned. But those are the numbskulls and a very small number of the over all fan base. It's like working in customer service, you work where everyone is going to come get pissed off as customers. So you start to think ALL the customer are pissy idiots who never should have been born but in reality, the amount of people you deal with are a very small amount of the business' clients.

I personally believe Houston has a very good fan base but a lot of over reaction. But to say it's the worst or one of the worst is way off IMO. If you want to hear insane babbling on sports radio from some real pissed off fans listen to sports radio in the north east. This aint $hit down here.

The bolded is my point though..those fans are passionate enough to call in with that nonstop incessant babbling about their team you're talking about....they're mad & they want everyone to know about it...Most of these Houston bandwagoners probably don't care enough to call in & do that....they're not nearly as emotionally invested....It's all good when everything's going well, but when it ain't they're not trying to be associated with the team.

I hear what you're saying though...maybe it is a little hyperbole, but there's no doubt houston sports fans are the most splintered in the nation..no matter the sport.

It's the biggest reason i always snicker when this talk about bringing the NHL to Houston comes up every year...We can't even keep an IHL team here much less an NHL one...

NFL Security responds after fan incident at Schaub home (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap2000000259679/article/nfl-security-responds-after-fan-incident-at-schaub-home?campaign=Twitter_atl)


By Gregg Rosenthal
Around The League Editor
Published: Oct. 9, 2013 at 11:08 a.m.
Updated: Oct. 9, 2013 at 11:13 a.m.


NFL V.P. of security Jeff Miller confirmed Wednesday to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport that the league was contacted after an incident at the home of Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub involving a fan.

"This is a little unusual in that we don't normally have fans acting in this way, going to a players residence that sort of thing," Miller said. "In this case, Monday afternoon, a vehicle pulled into his driveway, an unidentified individual yelled obscenities. The police department is involved. We've been in contact with them as we normally would for anything like this. And because its a team issue, they have a security director, we work with them.

"In this case, they'll be working closely with the police department. But it's going to be investigated and handled seriously by Houston Police Department."

Fred Davis of CBS Radio 610 in Houston first reported that reported Schaub was confronted at his home by a fan. Houston Police announced Wednesday morning that police were not called to the home. A family member reported seeing a suspicious male taking pictures in the driveway, police said. No one was arrested or harmed.

Miller explained that the league will coordinate with team security to provide extra support because this story is now in the public eye. He also said that security can be provided for Schaub's family when he is traveling and they "don't need to be subjected to things like this."

The original story stated that a GROUP of angry fans left before the police arrived..........now it is only A fan (and they can't even verify that the fan was there for any reason but to take pictures of Schaub's home......people take pictures of my home all the time) that was involved.

short of asking every person in the city who their team is...there isn't any true way of finding out who's a bandwagnoner & who's not.....but fan attendance at games does speak to it though. besides, what you say can be extrapolated to every professional team..

Jags team owner: "yeah, this city is behind us fully, they love us.....We just put those tarps up in the stands b/c we wanted to make sure all our fans watching at home could get a good view of our newly designed team logo.."....:rolleyes:

**********************TWITTER:

HPD twitter feed says none of this happened the way it is being protrayed...

https://twitter.com/houstonpolice

They are saying on the official HPD twitter that there was NOT a bunch of fans at his house, police were NOT called to the home.

They reported someone taking pictures and that was it.

WTF is going on with this story?

BUMP for people who didn't see.

Matt should carry a gun. I wouldn't have minded if he shot these idiots in the face, get them out of the Houston gene pool.

Probably would've been the best thing he could do. If that doesn't fix Matt, nothing will.

Think about it. If he had shot that guy, who's going to say anything if he throws another pick 6?

I know I won't.

His second pick was on a tip pass and got lucky again. Schaub wasn't throwing bad passes his receivers were not making plays.



To be fair, he's the one who tipped the pass.

That's just really poor taste shown by 1 fan, not an indictment of the fan base.

Wishing injury upon players, showing up at the house, cheering an injury= all are grounds for losing your fan card.

This is why I don't bet on sports. I'm willing to bet (see what I did there?) that this is someone who is big into gambling on sports. Nine times out of 10, the really over-the-top, insane guys are the one's who have foolishly bet their mortgage payment on a game.

It says ...Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech.


There's no room for misinterpretation (though our politicians seem to think there is) and implicitly says you can SAY what you want without fear of the government saying you can't. It doesn't limit it to speaking about this or that. It very simply says what it says. But, I digress. If you want to snap shots of me while in public and ridicule me...go for it.

Go ahead and try your free speech limits at the local airport. Just say one word, because, you know, it's free speech and all.

Try it and get back to us.

That word would be "bomb".

Good luck!

Not true. We sold out every game when we were horrible for about 10 years. Bandwagon fans? New Orleans Saints. Any LA team. Houston fans are legit.

Yeah, all those consecutive sellouts at Reliant. So much to be proud of there.

Let's not mention personal seat licenses and corporate owned season tickets. That might undermine the bragging rights.

Too late, the first story is already out there. That will be all that counts.

Yep. The infamous Philly-fan-throwing-stuff-at-Santa is case in point. Regardless of what really happened, the public will always keep the urban legend alive to represent an entire fan base and city.

I've seen them at work before and it's not uncommon. Who is the bonehead who jumped the gun and reported this story on sports radio yesterday?

Man, this story is going to stain Houston for awhile. I've already heard from two of my agents - one in Boston and another in Seattle - and they are giving me all kinds of grief as a Texans fan. Even after I sent them the updates on the 'story', they continue to have fun with it.

Freakin' 610. They already suck with Josh Innes, and now they pull this crap. Pathetic. Their only saving grace is Seth Payne, IMO.

Lol. Yep. People like to trot out the free speech argument, but don't understand there are consequences to free speech.

As a black dude, you have the freedom to call me a racial slur. In response, I have the freedom to punch you in the mouth. And, a bonus: me punching you in the mouth would bring zero consequences, because the comment would be considered hate speech.

So, yeah, say what you want, but be prepared to deal with the fall out.

How is this going to stain Houston? Let's be real: if Schaub were playing on an East Coast team, this would have gotten a lot nastier a LONG time ago. No, I'm not saying it's ok to approach a players home; I'm saying that, if he were playing elsewhere, fans would have BURNED HIS HOUSE DOWN by now.

So, this story being false - or even true - doesn't reflect on Houston fans at all, in my opinion.

In light of this afternoon's announcement that Schaub will be starting, is there ANY DOUBT whatsoever that the Texans floated this BS non-story to try to tame the legitimate and justified white-hot anger towards our lousy starting QB. Trying to build sympathy for the loser and shifting the focus from his poor play to he and his family being "victims" of mean old Texans fans.

It is classic media manipulation seen all the time in politics. *******s like Craig James (CJK5H - he who killed 5 hookers while at SMU) used the same filthy tactics to smear a good man and great coach in Mike Leach getting him fired from Tech.

Kyle Williams had death threats after he fumbled away the NFC Championship game vs the NYG, and Mitch Williams had death threats after he gave up the walkoff to Joe Carter...so it's not just hicks, but hippies and urban elite as well.

Sports fans are a reflection of the greater society and there are a lot of loose nuts out there. At least we don't have to deal with that crazy soccer hooliganism crap that goes down over in Europe. I know most of that is fan on fan stuff but some of those soccer and basketball games get nutty and they go after players, coaches and refs. I've seen fans just go after some guys.

Now, for sure, I don't condone this behavior, and I feel somewhat like a bastard for suggesting a conspiracy theory. Apologies if it's not already mentioned in one of the already 5 pages on this thread. In fact, it doesn't even have to be a conspiracy theory...

Now that the story is out there getting public attention, the dumb perps have actually done nothing to further their cause. In fact, it's fair to say, the sympathy gained for Matt Schaub and his family HAS to carry over as a rallying cry from that of his team mates, coaching staff and fan base.

If it is a conspiracy, Gary K is more brilliant than we give him credit for! :kitten:

Now I feel less of a bastard. Not being sure of who's actually behind it, certainly the media blew it up and made A-holes out of alot of sympathetic fans.

If anything, it does go to show what class a majority of the fanbase on this forum has.. While calling for someone's head for their on the field antics, yet seemingly having that same individual's back for their off the field plight(as led to believe).

Despite the worst some of us may think of Schaub the player in the NOW, Schaub the person is a stand up guy, nobody wants to see harmed.

Kudo's to all for having brass to call things for what they are on both sides of the fence. Fuels me to overlook some of the trivial BS I witness on this forum from time to time.

They then just now at around 8:30 flailed some more about how HPD is trying to downplay the story never mind Schaub himself denying anyone accosting him or his family. So this story is still just crazy and I don't think anyone know WTF happened outside Schaub and his family but I know this, 610 was inaccurate and the harder the flail the more I believe it. Something is awfully wrong with this picture/story.
