I don't know how I didn't get to this board sooner.

I say "Thanks" to everyone who participates in the running and content of this message board.

Most of the threads on the other boards I have been to sound like 16 yr olds screaming obscenities and calling each other idiots.

I like it here and plan to be around for awhile.

Again, Thanks.

It's funny because I think the same thing. Every day I would go to this board and a different board (not going to mention it) and on both I post often. The other board I was on turned every thread into a fight, and would call people names and say stupid stuff. This board here is the exact opposite, as everyone realizes that different people have different opinions. If you are not right people on here correct you when maybe you are wrong, or nicely state their reason for opposition, instead of turning it into a bashing. I would also like to thank almost every single member for being mature and respectful of others on this board.

You should of been here for the Bush/Young/Carr stinks posts.

Other than that it is pretty civil.

I saw all of that on the ESPN boards! It was brutal there. Couldn't have been nearly as bad here.

You can tell by my screen name where I stood on the issue. Apparently no one was willing to give McNair the "Godfather" deal he was looking for.

I wanted Bush when it was apparent that there was going to be no trade, but I have gotten over it. I think Mario is going to be a great addition to this team on and off the field. I can't wait to see him ride a QB to the turf. I'd like to see him and Dunta hit Manning at the same time!

I think it was the same for all of us. For a few days we were all in shock about what happened and then most of us got over it, as we still got a great player. The problem was that the media made us look like we were the most depressed fans ever for a few weeks after that because we took Super Mario.

Not to be argumentative :) ... but it was insane here. Absolutely, clinically insane. There was so much of the Jesus Young and 3000 Yard Bush and Carr Isn't Fit to Lick My Shoes rhetoric going on here for awhile. It was like a contest to see who could be more hyperbolic.

Speaking of, it's amazing to be here now that it is has calmed down and we are all talking Texans football once again.

I do appreciate the job our mods do though.

And welcome to the MB.

Well it was obvious that everyone in the texas area really liked Vince Young. It took me a day or two to get out of my Vince Young coma after the Rose Bowl. A lot of people seemed to think that he could really improve our team, which I'm not going to comment on, because we don't need to turn this into one of those threads. I just wasn't as high on him as most of you were, and that's probably because I don't live even close to Texas. A lot of people really hated David then.

This is one of the best message boards I've ever been on. The mods do a great job of filtering the trash out. Thanks to Vinny and the rest of the volunteers for making this a great place.

Welcome to the terrordome. :) Appreciate new blood to add to the electic mix of great posters and most importantly fellow Texan fans.

We are here because we bleed Battle Red, Liberty White and Maligned Blue (uniform joke). If you can cut through the emotions and sarcasm of some of the posts you will find this place a very interesting and diverse community.

For the most part all boards have childish behavior. The board here has some very knowledgable fans. Very good topics, and for the most part honest opionins. We all have the homers and Trolls on our Teams Home boards but you guys pretty much keep yours in line here.

Alot of respectable members with much insight on football, I look forward to posting with you guys for a long time.

Here's to the new rivalry in the South the Colts and Texans, New staff this year=you guys being the suprise team in the NFL. Titans I would like to offically welcome you to the CELLAR:stirpot:

So far some of our most memorable division games have been against Jacksonville, but that is because the Colts have been killing us. I hope our Texans get a lot better sooner than later.

After rooting for the Oilers all those years it was a slap in the face to see the core group of guys playing in a Superbowl wearing a different uniform and playing for a different city.

I look forward to more competitive divisional games, and I look forward to plenty to discuss with all of you this upcoming season.

Welcome to the board and you are correct to appreciate it. Since I love the Texans but am not "wired into them" and can't get much out of the local version of a sports section in the newspaper that is worthwhile, I really scratch the itch through this MB.

I'll bet that like me, you will learn overtime that there really are three groups that post:

(1) Extremely knowledgable (former players/coaches at various levels) that frequently help me understand things that I would never get from the media in a 1000 years. In addition, there are a few that are in close proximity to the Texans and sometimes even scoop the media from time to time which is way cool.

(2) Passionate fans (like me) that care a lot more than we really know but who really want to know everything we can about "our team" (the players, coaches, offensive/defensive schemes etc...)

(3) A few "what's wrong with this picture types" that only want to vent and rant no matter what.

Heh, you've never been to the ESPN boards, methinks.

Take all the Bush/Young stuff, double it and then add in the Bush-will-always-be-garbage-because-your-team-is-garbage-and-all-you-fans-are-too posters. Toss in a few spammers, and stir.

See what you did. I couldn't wait to we played you guys so that I could see our defense mangle and brutalize Peyton, now my level of enjoyment won't be as high. It'll still be up ther but not as high.
