All of my liberty white jerseys are players who are no longer with the team. Sharper, Glenn, Carr, Davis/Williams. Which one should I choose?

White outs and Battle Red look good. Better to wear a red/white T than to not. On battle red days, I wear a red T (don't have a BR jersey).

You can take the name off any of the jerseys and have no name if you want to alter them.
That's what I did with my Glenn jersey.

Stay away from Red. White is best, but like Gma said - Texans screwed the pooch on this one. Target & Academy usually have Texans T's for ~$12 if you want to get a white one.

If it is Liberty White day, you should wear white.

The problem with Houston as fans is we don't do things like other fans do.

It would be nice to have ALL white jerseys/shirts, with the seats filled before player announcements, and everyone being loud and proud. It just won't happen in Houston.

Maybe we will get better at it as the team does well.

Sorry Ted. As the Texans begin to do well, Houston fans (not all of course - there's a lot of folks like us) will show up later and later. See the Rockets.

Wear white. Even though I think Surrender Sunday is a totally lame gimmick.

On Liberty White Day and Battle Red Day, always choose the color over wearing team apparel. The point is to have the whole stadium looking uniform. My desktop has Petey in battle red in the sea of Bull Pen fans. Only a couple of fans weren't wearing red, and it looks bad.

My other half did NOT want to buy a white Texans shirt, but he got lucky when they passed out free ones at training camp. I bought one at Academy last year for the same occasion.

White it is, I have to take my son to Academy to buy cleats - looks like they will be very expensive cleats (I have to slip it by my other half).:user:

I bought one at Academy last year for the same occasion.I've got to admit, from a guy who has never ever liked the all white unis, the Texans actually looked pretty sharp in them last year. I wouldn't want them to switch to it permanently, and other than that game and battle red day, I wish they'd wear the blues for all other home games.

Gimmick or not, I think it's a cool idea to try and get the stadium all white, all blue or all red. I think that actually may be an original idea. Well, at least a twist to that idea. I know team's fans have dressed one color at games before, but I don't know of any who do 3 colors.

And when the team starts winning, the fans will get with the program.

Some of us aren't swayed by marketing decisions that give us FIVE home unis.

What I don't get is "Liberty White Day", like the white jerseys are special...expect for the other 3-4 times they wear them this season.

ohhhhh, they have white pants now, so that makes all the difference...not.

I'm going with my steel blue custom authentic. No way do I blow $200 on a jersey only to skip wearing it so I can wear a t-shirt to make sure I'm color coordinated.

Nobody cares what us goat herders wear up on the mountain anyway... :shades:

I can't....I dont own a liberty jersey. Gonna have to rock the battle red andre. Sorry guys.

Nothing to apologize for, IMO. I hate the strength of the marketing department that this team seems to display. Maybe I'm old school, but teams should have official home and away jerseys, IMHO.

why do we not have a specific home jersey or away like we where blue when we are home and away same as white?

Good question, and one I've never figured out in five seasons.

I don't see this as a marketing ploy....I see it as an attempt to get the fans coordinated. The stadium will look great "whited out". As fans it's a way to support our team while intimidating (hopefully) the opposing team. Houston is horrible when it comes to these things. There are still people cheering when we are on offense because they get excited when we are trying to score. This is another way to support your team and it doesn't require any effort - not even a towel waving. I for one am happy to do it.

Bottom line is this:
Wear something white.
Even if it doesn't have Texans logo, wear a white t shirt and Texans blue cap, just wear a white top.

If you are worried about it not being Texans logo shirt, jsut make alot of noise when the defense is on the field and after Jacoby takes a punt back 83 yards for a TD!

It looks so cool when a home crowd supports their team in wearing the color of the day.
Aggie 'maroon outs' and 'white outs' at Reed Arena have looked very cool in the past.
Make Reliant THE place to be on Sundays(and a Thursday in December) this Fall and Winter.

Besides, it's WHITE. It's not like anyone has to spend extra money on it. Undershirts are white. Free t-shirts from everywhere are white. It's easy - why be a jerk about it?

I think it started because of the heat...white jerseys for home on during the first part of the season - blue for the later part..

That's outdated now, though, because of our 80 degree closed-roof rule at Reliant. I think the blue jerseys should be the permanent home jerseys.

As for away jerseys, the home dictates. So more times than not, the Texans are wearing their white jerseys away, too. That's a wholelotta white and not much blue.

Ok so this means that when we meet up and I have on my CARR blue jersey, it's all good? Cuz, that's my option.

I could care less. Wear a Boselli jersey, doesn't matter to me.

I'm not doggin' anyone that wishes to participate. I just don't like being dogged because I like my steel blues, and it is still team colors.

I'm there to watch a football game, and to be honest, the only part about the crowd I care about is if they're yelling and being quiet at the right times. The team doesn't play better because we color coordinate. It is a fan thing, though, and I'm cool with team spirit (I've worn a hardhat to every home game since 19-10).

But...I am the Antipop, going against the grain until the day I drop. :howdy:

Personally i love wearing my Texans jersey to the games, only time i get a chance to wear it here in SA, and i don't want to wear a damn white t-shirt when i want to wear my Texans jersey and that jersey happens to be steel blue...That doesn't make me any less of a fan....I will scream my lungs out, not be able to talk for 2 days, and it will all be for my TEXANS...So anyone else and their opinions, i really don't care...

the thing is, i only get to go to a few games...and I am not going to not show my team support by not wearing one of my jerseys to the game when I get the chance. Great that the marketing department wants us in white...i think its a neat idea...but the reality is, I've got 7 texans jerseys, and none of them are white. I've got 3 steel blue andre's, 1 steel blue dominic davis, 1 battle red andre, and i gave my original Houston Jersey and my Sharper jersey to my girlfriend. Given that its the chiefs, and I don't want any confusion as to where my loyalties lie, Im rocking a steel blue andre.

A lot of teams have gotten away from the strictly "Dark at home - White on the road" since teams were allowed to use alternate jerseys. It gives them more flexibility for marketing angles. (i.e. Liberty White day, Battle Red day, Steel Blue day - new last year). Besides, would you want to wear a dark jersey in the middle of September in either Texas or say Florida - Brutal!!

If you want, blame the Cowboys. If they hadn't insisted on wearing their white jerseys at home, other teams would not have countered by wearing white at home and making the gurls wear their blue jerseys on the road. I remember a play-off game in the late 70's where the Eagles wore their white jerseys at home and beat the gurls. Other teams picked up on that and there ya have it...

I'm with you on this one Hobie....

PSL's $1,800.00
Season Tickets & Parking $1670.00 x 6 seasons = $10,020.00
Food/Beer for tailgating (average $100.00 x 52 home games so far) = $5,200.00
Food / Beer in the stadium (average 30.00 x 52 home games so far) = $1,560.00
Road Trips to Cincinatti and New Orleans = $1,500.00
Texans gear (including a white $230.00 jersey, chairs, etc.) = $1,000.00


Total = $ 21,080.00 (plus incidentals not mentioned). Thats pretty damn supportive to me.


To promote days like this, the Texans should anty up and give out t-shirts to the first 40,000 (or so) people that show up. So, you'll excuse me if I pass on running out to buy more gear.

I once wore red shorts (with my white jersey) on Battle Red Day - does that count???

Nice way to call out fans because we don't color coordinate our clothes with marketing.

If people are wearing TEAM COLORS, I don't see a problem.

The team wears white jerseys for 3-5 home games a year. The only difference with "Liberty White Day" is white pants. Are you wearing white pants to the game?! If not, I'd have to wonder if you truly support this team according to your standards.

I see both sides of the issue. I plan on wearing white and so does most of my family. My 13 yr. old son is wearing his blue Williams jersey with a plain white shirt under. He can take the jersey off in the stands in order to fit in better if he decides to.

I have some cynicism about the marketing department just wanting to make us buy 3X the gear so we can match on Red, White and/or Blue games. However, I know how powerful a message have a color coordinated stadium can be. I do like the idea of the Texans having cheap shirts as a giveaway when they ask the fans to wear a certain color. I googled looking for the image from Kyle Field after 9/11 when the stands were red, white and blue by section after 9/11. I couldn't find it. Does anyone have a link to that picture? Tallk about powerful messages.

Anyway, we all agree on one thing :fans:

Most of us will wear white, and the others can believe they are cool because "they can't be told what to do." Forget the fact that it would be fun, it would look good to all be united, and McNair and Rick Smith asked us to.
And really, we've only known this has been coming for one year! How could we have found a nice white Texans shirt in only one year? :wacko:

To be honest, if the plan is to wear white and very few participate... it kind of comes off a bit pathetic as a whole IMO. Again, you are no less of a fan... but just against the grain if you will. I do understand certain situations as have been stated in here.... so not all apply.

It is people like you that seem to believe that the way you identify as a fan is to wear the color that the organization tells you to wear. It is people like you that claimed I was not a "real Texans fan" because I wanted to wear my Texans jersey instead of some other color.

Back in 2004 I attended a Texans game and I believe it was "Blue Day". I proudly wore my white 02 Texans jersey and red Texans hat to the game. I wore it because it was(and is) the only Texans jersey I have and I wanted to show support for my favorite team. There were several asshats at the stadium that loudly called my support for the team into question because i was not following the trend and wearing blue. They said "how cool and united we would look if we all wore blue" and that i was "ruining" their experience by choosing to wear a White Texans jersey and red Texans cap instead of some generic blue shirt.

I do not live in Houston (or Texas for that matter) and do not have the luxury of choosing which games(if any) I get to go to. Typically i have a choice of one game(and sometimes a choice of none). If I am going to a Texans game, I will be wearing my Texans jersey. I do not care if you do not like it. What right do YOU have in deciding what I will wear? Who made YOU the fashion police?

Every year i have to hear and deal with these comments from people like you and I am sick and tired of it. What makes yall think you are better fans than me? It is people like you that give Texans fans a bad name and you should be ashamed of your comments.

WOW is all I can say. Yes the idea is to wear white but if you do not have that color jersey and want to wear a jersey; you are going to try and be little someone and talk down to them for wearing a jersey a different color?

I would love for someone to get in my face about my blue jersey because it is the only one I own. Because I would tell you where to take that attitude and where to firmly place it. Calling out someone who is supporting the team is disgusting. Make sure you go on every single Chiefs board and talk to them like this about them wear there white shirts and jerseys because if you do not talk to a rival like this why in the hell would you talk to a fan like this?

Sounds like someone has their nose in the air and a stick up there butt.

awtysst - I'm sorry those asshats acted the way they did. Unfortunately every team has them.

The fact that you attend the game alone is support for the team. I'd much rather you sport Texans gear then nothing at all - or worse Saints gear like caller on 610 this morning. But I'm getting off topic.

I guess all I'll say is support the team - I don't really care how. If you don't want to wear white - so be it. Scream your tail off (when we're on D please) and do your thing. As long as you're supporting the Texans, I see no reason anyone should be calling you a lesser fan.

Just a friendly plea from a Texan fan. :fans:

In year 1, the only jersey I had was the blue '02 jersey. I never bought a players jersey because players come and go. I buy a player's jersey and he gets traded or cut or whatever, and I now have an out of date jersey. If I was going to buy a jersey, it was going to be personalized.

I wore that blue '02 jersey to every game but the last one that first year. Of course we didn't have Battle Red day or Liberty White or any of that.

That last game of year one is when my personalized white and blue jerseys came in. Christmas presents from me to me. They were buy one get one half price, so I went for it since I was going to get 2 eventually anyway.

I decided then that I would wear the white one for division games and nationally televised games, and the blue one for all other games. That just seemed an easy way to determine what color jersey I'd wear on Sundays.

Then of course, in year 2, they break out the battle reds. I didn't have a red jersey so I wore whatever jersey I was supposed to wear with my little system. So I wore blue for Battle Red Day '03, and white for Battle red day '04 and '05.

It wasn't until last year that I ordered my personalized battle red jersey that I wore for the first time last year.

My little system is a little different now. If I kept it like it was, I'd be wearing the blue a whole lot more than the others. And as it is, I'm wearing the red just once a year. I'm always in blue for pre-season, unless it's a national TV game. Now that they have Liberty White Kickoff, and my old way could potentially have me in blue for the 1st 4 or 5 games, I like that I can break out the whites on opening day. So now I'll wear the white jersey on Kickoff Sunday. I'll still be in white for division games or national tv games, with the only exception being if it's battle red day. This means I'll be wearing white for the Deep Steel Sunday game against the Colts and red for the Denver game. Since red sees the light of day just once a year, I won't break it out again unless we're in the playoffs, at home. And then blue for all other games.

So here's my schedule:
Chi - blue
Dal - blue
KC - white
Ind - white
Mia - blue
Ten - white
NO - blue
TB - blue
Den - red
Jac- white
playoff game - red

If that's not dorky enough for you, I also have a blue grill and a red grill.

Is this my cry for help???

And Texans home games are the ONLY times I wear those jerseys.

I have seen fans on tv, if not mistaken I believe the Miami Heat in last year's playoffs, all wore (well appeared to by at least 95%) white and the consistency did look really nice. Although I really like to wear jerseys to the games, I think on this occasion I will go with a white top.

I went to a couple of the Rockets playoff games the past season and even though the fans were asked to wear red, I doubt if half did. A friend showed up at my house in a green polo, WTH. I had to lead the friend to the closet to make another selection.

Source, please. I've never read anything about Houston fans on the national media level except that Reliant can be one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL.

Perhaps it's your insecurity of what the rest of the country thinks of us...who knows. The perception of the Texans has to do with five losing seasons, not what colors fans wear to games. If anything, they'd laugh at us for having 5-6 uniform combos for 8 home games. Most teams have a standard home uni and maybe one game sporting a retro look.

I'm only in this thread because some find themselves on a mental high horse about how they define "fan". I feel the need to defend ALL Texans fans when they are being unfairly attacked and generalized.

Your wish has already been granted. "Deep Steel Sunday" is the next home game vs Colts on 9/23. "Battle Red Day" is 12/13 vs Broncos.

Gotta say that I love the Red the best. It just looks great. I'm sure they chose the Broncos game for Battle Red Day since it with be Thursday night Prime time. Red seems to look really good on TV.

As far as the white today - I thought it looked good, but the white towels waving gave off a greater effect imo. Props to the Texans for those. Wonder if we'll have blue ones for the Blue Game....

I can understand the primetime thing, and battle red looks really good. BUT, I'm a little tired of the Bronco connection.

Orginally the battle red days were for division rivals. Now it's because primetime and we want to look good.

See the difference is the first is special and for team spirit against one of our rivals, the second is purely for fashion. We have no rivalry with the Broncos.

FWIW, the head coach was in blue.:winky:

Look, when you have things like this, wear all white or red or whatever, you're not going to get all 70,000+ fans to do it. I saw plenty who weren't wearing white, hell I saw plenty who weren't wearing anything Texans or sports, but the stadium still looked pretty white to me, in person and on the tape I just watched a couple of hours ago.

Yeah, it's a marketing thing, but it has no effect on how the team plays. There's NO intimidation no matter what color you wear. The intimidation comes from screaming your ass off, causing false starts and such.

I don't get all this talk about the Texans should wear this color against this team and so on. Although I love the Texans colors, I honestly could not care less what color they were wearing as long as they win football games. This is kinda like the roof open or closed discussion. I'm not there to look at the stars, the blue sky, the rafters, the fan apparel, whether the grass is growing or not, or to look at a little hand held kangaroo tv device when I'm in that stadium. I'm there to watch the Texans, in whatever color jersey they're in, hopefully kick the crap out of the guys who aren't wearing that color.

I realize that this is a message board and is the place to discuss stuff like this should you choose, but really, 3 pages of this? Really? And then questioning how much of a fan someone is because they wear whatever they want to?

How 'bout just let people be fans the way they want to be fans, not the way you want them to be? That way you won't have to start another 100+ post thread when I'm leaving my blue jersey at home and wear the white one on Deep Steel Sunday against the Colts. Why? Because I want to.

But of course, since he needs to be seen in that sea of white. :)
