Do you all think that KENS 5 will continue to not show Texan games as they did the last two seasons? If this happens is there a meeting place for Texan fans to gather and watch our team? I just moved to SA this year and I am trying to make plans on where to watch the games. Unfortunately my apt. complex does not allow dish so i cant get the NFL ticket. Hopefully the Texans will play well enough and KENS will not have any excuse for dropping the games.

KENS doesn't need an excuse, we live in the heart of South Dallas, and the media here will make sure that Jerry is appeased.

Is it appeasing Jerry or the Cowboys having a massive advertising/promo campaign in the city? I saw over the weekend that the Cowboys are hosting a big free fan party prior to training camp at the Alamo Dome with Jerry, Wade, players, cheerleaders, mascot and a popular entertainment group. When pulling out all of the stops in that fashion, it isn't surprising the media and fan support received.

The Texans need to make an effort to compete for a share of that market.

If the Cowboys are doing all this they will gain fans. Most small kids get their first taste of a team at events like this. Their parents have a large deal of influence on who they root for, but even if a casual fan takes a child to such an event it will leave it's foot prints on the child. The Texans do need to do more out reach to bring in the kids. I have always rooted for the home team but that probable started as a desire to root for the underdog. I started watching football @1976, when I was 10. I think it was atleast partly because of my father, but i also think it was partly because of having friends that were Steeler and Cowboy fans. I was out numbered even then. The Texans don't seem to reach out very far. I haven't even heard much about their attemps this offseason. I live 30 minutes from downtown to the East off of I-10 but still end up going to the Woodlands or the stadium to see anything to do with the Texans. The Texans do hold some very good events at the stadium and I am thankful that training camp is right at the stadium complex but it would be nice if they did do more out reach in other areas. It doesn't take much for some young one to be turned from a fence sitter that wants to root for the Texans but goes to a Cowboy event in SA to decide to throw his fanship onto the "other" team.

Realizing that if Jerry said jump, you'd say how high, I'll do my best to explain it to you through your blue blockers :)

SA has never been anything but a Dallas stronghold. At no time, even during the Bum Phillips/Earl Campbell era have SA fans strayed from their loyalty to the Cowboys. There are many factors, but the biggest being the news media has always been biased in their reporting on any Houston team. I've tried over the years to draw parallels for the nimwits at KENS and the other affiliates, using our Spurs as an example. Outside the SA/Austin/South Texas market, the Spurs garner little respect. Prior to SA having any World Championship rings, you'd be lucky to hear anything outside Loop 410 on the Spurs. But the local media never fell off the Spurs bandwagon, and over time developed a loyal fanbase, even before the Championship rings. All I've ever asked from them is some balance in their reporting of professional football, because if we saw some of that, we'd see the Texans fanbase grow in this area. If you think for two seconds that Sister Jerry hasn't had a strong influence to make sure that doesn't happen, well, those blue blockers you're wearing are blinding ya ;) I agree the Texans haven't marketed well outside the Houston market, and I hold them responsible for that. I'm sure a winning record would help a bit also, but I know from years of dealing with these morons at KENS, it won't make much difference, it's hard to see anything when you've had your nose firmly planted in Jerry's buttcheeks for years :)

This year we were talking about meeting at some place off 1604, i think near the stone oak area...V-man was mentioning a place there that should be more centrally located for all of us....We will keep you updated and we usually post on the board where we will be meeting at....

Hey everybody its me. V-man found me and brought me here. For those of yall who watched the games with us you know who I am. Hope you had a great offseason its now time to put away the spurs DVD and focus on our second love the Texans!! Yes I still have all my Carr jersies, just dont wear them out of house or even at all. My wife does when she cleans , but the past is the past and I have taken down the shrines to DC.

Anyways, Ill start posting here as well as the main site so pm me or post on both for get togethers.-Mike

Hey Guys,

Didn't someone say there was a Bw3's that was going to open up in the 281 & 1604 area? I remember, I think Eric, saying that was an easier, more central site for some of the folks on the west side.

I know I would not make it every game but when the Texans are not on local TV it would be great to have one place week in and week out we know some fans will be there.

HJam72
07-26-2007, 10:36 AM
We could watch both teams, if the league would not have their games on at the same time. A lot of Cowboys fans would also watch the Texans, if they start winning more, and if they are not on at the same time.

Personally, I hate the Cowboys, but the reason for it is TV programming. Everytime the Texans are ignored to show a Cowboys game, I wish the Cowboys would have a 5 year stretch....well, kinda like the one we just had.

Otherwise, I'd probably get over the jealousy and root for both of them (eventually).

PS-And get the freaking Titans and Saints off my TV. This is Texas!

spurstexanstros
07-26-2007, 12:23 PM
Get along with Cowboy fans? not if they are from san antonio. For the most part they are obnoxious, front running and condescending to us texans fans. When we call them out they say " ive was rooting for them when they were 1-15." but yet they cant name players from that team. Fans from Dallas are ok because its their team. People who act like this is a suburb of dallas despite our rivalry and hatred of all things dallas durung the spurs season.(local media) we cannot stand(at least I cannot). the jerking off tv never happened to the oilers and it should not happen to the texans. You are right this is Texas and we should not see Ny vs the bengals on a sunday mid nov.
I do not buy the argument it is because they are loosing. Then why are we force fed the cowboys on fox. they have had 2 playoff appearances in the last 10 yrs that is far more loosing than the texans.
At least the Texans loose on the last play of the game as opposed to countless 10 to 6 losses. I am fed up with the sa cowboy fans

I vote Jerry Jones to be hereby refered to as Skeletor.

just throwin my two cents - and no love for the southsiders but the only reason I don't like the 281/1604 junction is traffic as that area is just growing too fast.

another thing is if it is a newly opened place the newly opened places will persist, ie service issues which we don't want (i think we had those at that fox and hound place last year as well).

i'm all for alternating between the Live Oak and DeZavala locations, mainly because I have timed it and it is around 25-30 mins or less depending on traffic and how fast you drive from location to location if you take 1604 around either way.

i'm just hell bent on avoiding 410's northern loop at all costs due to what we all know is some bad traffic due to construction at times.

but yes, BWW is a greatly fun place and has fair prices.

my main question now to all is are we down for meeting up at some preaseason games??????

treygar
08-02-2007, 12:58 PM
ok, well we have a 7pm game next Friday vs. Chicago - will it be live on TV in SA anyone know without me having to search it out real quick?

and i guess perhaps a vote then on location or something who handled this last year - V-Man and some other guy who I met at Lion and Rose though for the life of me I can't remember his name???

i guess we gotta figure out the live preseason broadcasts here in SA first though and flip for location if you want to do my rotating location plan...

Brando
08-02-2007, 01:07 PM
I used to live in SA and I know how the Cowboys are king there.:gun: I don't like JJ but it was smart to have training camp there. Sort of like a home away from home and putting that Alamo Dome to NFL use was smart. I wish Mr. Mcnair would do something like have OTA's(something) here in Corpus Christi. I know it's not a big market but I do see about the same ratio of Cowboy/Texan fans here, maybe with the Cowboys with a slight lead. That being said I would like CC to become more of a Texan City. I know another way we can get more Texan fans here..............










Start winning.....There is plenty of room on this bandwagon.

The thing that annoys me about SA is that even though the Texans and Cowboys RARELY play at the same time, the Texans still are NOT shown. If the Texans play at 12, and the boys at 4, they will show some random game at 12 and the boys at 4

08-02-2007, 03:38 PM
ok, trying to get the ball rolling - seems the Cardinals game will be live on NFL network, Saturday - August 18th. since its closer to me and we can switch next time I suggest the Buffalo Wild Wings at 35N and 1604, besides the Live Oak Cinema. i will call the venue that week to ensure they have the NFL Network and will play that game should a group of us be there.

unless anyone in SA has a better idea, or we want to try the logistics of the 1604/281 location I guess an afternoon preseason game is as good a time to try so I'm open to that location as well.

should the Bears game be televised in SA we can always bump up this plan a week depending on interest.

Only problem with the location off 35n is that the they may not have the Texans game on...We went through a big argument last year when they promised me before i set all this up to meet there with everyone they would be playing the game, and once the game started they switched the game from the good tv with sound to the worst picture tv with nooo sound...The guys were all upset and the manager was very rude when i went to talk to him and he said its all about what majority of the ppl want and that no one wanted to view the Texans but us...So not sure any of the other guys would go back to this place...Thats why V-man was looking a that new place that opened up off 1604/281, but i thought he said it was close to the stone oak area...Not sure if its the same place u are talking about.

08-02-2007, 05:34 PM
yes ok i tell ya what, if anyone is interested then for a quick meetup at the BWW at Stone Oak aka 281/1604 area to me (its close enough so i guess its a matter of what you want to call it, plus remember i'm not an SA native) this Saturday (8/4) for lunch or something i'd be down with that just to scope out the venue and maybe talk to the manager???

i know its central to the two BWW we go to but man i tell ya i hate the traffic there but honestly i'm not sure exactly where this one is located off of Stone Oak so i'm willing to try.

V Man
08-02-2007, 07:25 PM

The 281/1604 BWW is located on the 281 N Access road. Just take the 1604 exit off 281 N and stay on it...go under 1604 and u will see it there on your right side in the new shopping area that has gone up there. Sunday traffic is really not that bad on 281 (only when there is construction) and there hasnt been any in the last couple of weeks.

Looks like I'll end up missing the preseason games because of them being Saturday. My daughter has to work each Saturday until Midnight. I just realized that. Now, I really hope they will be on TV.

looks like it is going to be hard to get everyone together except for maybe the last preseason game. It is on a Thursday.

I'll take care of him long before we have a game. I know where he lives.:shades:


VMan, who used to post those broadcast maps last year? I think it was one of the Austin guys. We need to figure that out and get those going again. I can go to the last preseason since it's Thursday, but I'd like to know if I get to see Texans when I'm at home for the first 3. Connor is pretty picky about who he watches. No matter the team, he seems not to like white jerseys. Especially those ones with stars on them, :D

that is Texans 84 or Dante that we all know and love now through his special thread.

Game is at 4 pm right? so 3:30 pm this Saturday lets all try to make it in.

PM me if you want my phone number, I think V-Man said he can make this one as well last time we talked to him, so that is at least 3 of us but everyone in the SA area is invited.

side of town may be problem.

I know that yall may want to meet at 1604 and 281 for this game, but yall may have more people show up if you have it at the de zavala bww. we had a good turnout last year for the regular season games... just some points to ponder. ( de zavala always showed the game on the big screen with sound, while other locations didnt show them at all.) plus i have the nfl network and saturday is familty day.

We all will get together for the cowboys game guarenteed.)i need to be bailed out of jail for hittng those cowgirls fan.

bumped again, somehow or another maybe someone can give us a SA Watch Party thread, i dunno.

anyways the De Zavala location for me has a bit of a parking problem at times and there are some of us on the NE side.

i thought we agreed on alternating locations, lets face it, SA is not a big town at all, the people in Houston manage to do a party at one location so just imagine all the driving those guys do.

Ok guys thanks for showing up.

What did you think of the venue? Smaller than the other two venues I think and more traffic getting to and from I feel. I still prefer Live Oak for the greater parking area and proximity to the freeways.

When are we up for doing another watch party?

No matter where we go I suggest the bar area instead of general seating, so the smokers don't have to go to and from and we can be louder and probably get better service. I didn't feel comfortable as some people are there just to dine and not watch sports (i'm more uncomfortable knowing there are people who don't watch sports but that is another story altogether).

any comments welcome but as decent a turnout as I expected (more actually).

spurstexanstros
08-19-2007, 10:18 PM
Yeah, I had fun.

I bet the next watch party will be when there is a conflict between the Texans and those who will not be named cause they are playing on cbs. or if the local networks jerk the game. so week 4 is my bet. One thing is guaranteed though we are all watching the Denver game at my house because I have the NFL network and those who dont want to go to a bar on a thursday can comr to my house I have a big screen and we can BBq. Oh and sorry if my Kid bothered yall he didnt have a nap and most of yall know i usually dont bring him but I did cause his mom needed a break.

Anyways, I enjoyed hanging out with yall again and meeting Uvalde and Trey.
As for the location it was allright more central location could split the differences. In my opinion the dezavala location is the best. its dark and always on the big screen. Live oak is way to far for me. I wish wingstop had a bigscreen they have better wings.

See other than the traffic getting there, I liked this place, but don't know how crowded it will be on Sundays. Understand what you are saying about the bar, but some of us (like this time) bring our children so the main area is better for them.

As for the Live Oak one, I wasn't impressed with it. Poor service, and no sound for the Texans game, and had to beg to get it on a big screen near wear we sat. But it may have been that time.

But I am flexible and will travel to where the group is.

Yeah, I had fun.

I bet the next watch party will be when there is a conflict between the Texans and those who will not be named cause they are playing on cbs. or if the local networks jerk the game. so week 4 is my bet. One thing is guaranteed though we are all watching the Denver game at my house because I have the NFL network and those who dont want to go to a bar on a thursday can comr to my house I have a big screen and we can BBq. Oh and sorry if my Kid bothered yall he didnt have a nap and most of yall know i usually dont bring him but I did cause his mom needed a break.

Anyways, I enjoyed hanging out with yall again and meeting Uvalde and Trey.
As for the location it was allright more central location could split the differences. In my opinion the dezavala location is the best. its dark and always on the big screen. Live oak is way to far for me. I wish wingstop had a bigscreen they have better wings.

Your kid was no problem, forgot he was there at times. As for the Thursday game sounds great. And I bet if we lose the first two, the Texans get pulled week 3 in SA.

Hey guys,

I too am from San Antonio and would like to say that KENS 5/TWC is the reason why I bother my wife for Dish Network (NFL League Pass). Like previously stated, it pisses me off when they cut the Texans for a Jets game in the middle of the season. The only thing worse than the Jets would be the Tacs and I'm sure that has happened in the past. So believe me, I share with yall's frustration.

Anytime you have a get together for the game I'd love to join. My work schedule has me working every other weekend but when I have the time off it'd be great to meet all of you.

Some things about me....I love beer, wings and the Texans. Seeing some of you talking about BWW is speaking my language. Hope to meet you soon.

They are giving away tickets on ticket 760, yesterday and maybe today. I called right when they came on to give them away. It was busy and they asked simple questions. One guy got the back up Qb wrong and another answerd a question about Andre and called him Landry Johnson. The sad part is they gave it to him. I was so pissed I may try again today, if they have it. Starts at 3 I think. Your welcome to hang here. My wife is gonna make wings from scratch. Its not sa party just my opening day tradition. Oh then I go with friends after the game to play bball. So if you like playing pick up ball, you can go to. I have big screen. This is not a party( I will be hosting one for the Denver game because I have directv) This is assuming i dont win tickets.

No the do not at the one on Brodie, I think most are older. Meaning from last year.

I saw Mario and AJ Blue Red and White. Will be up north tomorrow so I will check that one. Not looking for myself, but so others will no what is up. I guess this info should be put out for others as well.

Was not looking to spend the money, but I do not have a red or white one and for the price could not resist.

You pay extra for that, the first part cost an arm and a legg and to have them hook it up is your first born.

Add to the fact the officiating was as bad as the play of the team, good thing the Titans are here next week, so you will get that game. Now if they change back to the Texans of weeks 1-2, you might have a shot at seeing them again.

I'm here I just lurk but yeah I'm down for any watch parties, espeically for the three games V-Man mentioned someone name or nominate the place and we can do it -

here is just a suggestion

11/18 - De Zavala - BW3/BWW
11/9 - Live Oak - BW3/BWW
12/13 - De Zavala - BW3/BWW

figure since the majority of you want the De Zavala location us in the NE side will give you the majority of games.

I don't like the one place we went to strictly based on traffic/location - that area is horrendous these days I hate the drive and it definitely has to be ruled out for the Thursday night game - but if we want to do one at each of the Northside BW's we can do it and we also need a contingency plan should our games start getting axed.

The only problem with the Live Oak location is that they go by majority of what the ppl there want to see, and we had to fight with the Browns fans for a TV with sound, and we lost, so iam sure that will happen again....What about that 1604 location???

The De Zavala always has the Texans on a big screen, but the problem will be (there and any other place we go) that the Cowboys are on at the same time, so they will get the sound.

HOLY COW!!!!! Iam sooo sorry, Erik did leave a message last nite, My phones been screwing up, and boy did you guys sound loaded.....LOL....I could barely understand him, but for the record about his question, Sorry Erik, V-man was right, excluding this year, 6-10 last year was not the best record, 2004 was at 7-10....So what was the bet??

OOPPSS, Had to edit, meant 7-9

No SA watchin' this week? It seems to me your gigs are good luck. I will be passing thru town Sunday (if we come back that day) on the way back from Leakey.

If y'all are getting together, can someone please post up simple directions like off of 410 or whatever. I grew up there but its been a long time.

It'd be cool to meet some of you from out west.

Thanks

Any of my fellow SA fans interested in getting together for the last game of the season?

I know I am.
