My cousin and I decided to go to the All Access event this year.

How was the event last year?
How good of an oppurtunity is this for autographs?

According to an e-mail I just received from the Texans, ALL Texan players will be at All Access and will be available for autographs. The event is free, but you have to have a ticket to get in. It is an event supposedly for season ticket holders. You should be able to access tickets according to the number of seats you have. Didn't work for me. I have 5 seats, and one I share with a friend, they only offered me two tickets. I'm going to call them tomorrow.

It's a fun time, but, get ready to stand in line for a good while for autographs of high profile players. This will be the first year it is being held on a week day (night) so we will see how that goes. It will be on Thursday May 29th at 6pm.

Yall I am sooo sad now just posting this. As I have posted before, I have to be in Ohio for a fellowship during All Access. But I still have a ticket.

If anyone in the Blue Crew knows anyone who would like to attend and is willing to stalk Dunta for me and get his autograph and a few pics of the players....they can have my ticket. :(

Also in other news...I will officially be a college professor in the fall....at Wichita State University...which means I will be leaving Houston. But I will be raking in the frequent flyer miles because I will be at each and every home game! Plus some away games. Just because I love the Texans! :fans:

I hit my acct and it let me print all of mine.

Our buddy put his 4 up for charity. He did it to help raise a couple of bucks for some friends. Their infant son has brain cancer but is hanging in there. He as tough as his old man.

Anyway..the one or two of you that have a problem him selling free tix can kiss both of our....well you know.

Anyone wants to go and doesn't mind helping a good family out a bit should send me a PM for a link.


Thanks

What types of things are good to bring to get autographs? This is my first event and I want not sure if I should buy one of them footballs. I think I am wanting to get multiple sigs on one article. Any advice? How long are the lines?

Hardcore, its hit or miss when it comes to some of the big players. Last year I was able to get Green and M. Williams as far as big name players and got about 10 other players as well.

I personally like getting a helmet signed instead of a football. For one you can put more sigs on a helmet.

You just don't know who you'll get. The lines for the A list are LONG. Players change about every 45 or so minutes. BUT if you're in a C list line, there's a chance an A list may rotate in.

I like to have one item, be it helmet, towel, or ball, for all the B and C list players to sign. Then I may carry a seperate towel and helmet or something - last year, total luck, got Schaub to sign a mini helmet.

Sandy, if your seats arent all in a row you have to print them out seperatly. It won't let you print out your upper seats and lower seats at the same time. If you have any problems with it give me a call.:texflag:

Does anyone know if the Go Texans store at Reliant will be open. I would like to buy a Texans football (you know the ones that are half white for signatures or helmet to get signed). I assume they will have those there but overpriced. What about Academy? Are they the best option if I want to get something beforehand?

I am pumped up about this event. I think it is going to be awesome to meet the players and coaches and get to see the locker room, workout facilities, and to be able to walk out on the field.

I stood in a line for 2 hours and had no clue who was going to be signing. I finally found out it was: Duane Brown, Demeco, Slaton, A.Johnson, Quinn Gray and I think there was someone else there. I was kinda glad I stood in that line but I think even with me standing in that long line I was one of the last folks to get a signature. If anyone wants to do some trading I might have an extra football I could trade for a mario one. I did luck out and also get Amobi and Sage's this year too.

I don't do the autograph thing. We walked up to the side of the tables to see who's there, snapped a few pictures and offered some words of encouragement to the players and moved on. I certainly don't get in any line that's 100 yards long for any reason, except maybe if they're giving away money. The lines were definitely shorter up on the 100 level concourse.

Right before the Rick Smith introduced the players we walked back out on the floor and were surprised to see that line winding around the floor - especially when we saw there was no one at the table and they hadn't posted the names.

I thought Rick Smith's short program where he introduced the star players was great.

We saw Eric Winston as he walked through the 000 level concourse on his way to somewhere and Morlon Greenwood as he was walking the 100 level from the 610 booth to one of the autograph stations. It was kind of funny because a lot of people recognized Winston and hollered at him and no one recognized Greenwood as he walked right past the people piling stuff on their foot long hot dogs.

If I wouldn't have had my daughter along, I would have never noticed that Will Demps was the only player to have a loofah hanging in his locker next to a can of Burt's Bees Lip Balm. Hell, I didn't even know those things were called loofah's until last night. She had no clue who Demps was either before last night (or Ultimate for that matter) but she did check out their websites after we got home. Guys notice shoes and helmets. Girls notice the loofah's, lip balm, mouthwash and Advil.

There were meeting rooms open that I didn't see last year. Pretty cool stuff - especially the O-line's meeting room off to the side of the main meeting room. Several playbooks were open the desks. I don't think they were props since they had the player's names on them. The plays certainly looked real enough. Everyone wrote notes of encouragement on the wall with the dry erase markers. Some chick left her phone number for Andre Johnson (in the o-line's meeting room).

Definitely lots of new cheerleader faces... a different group for sure.

Sausage (Red) better win. The other two samples were tasteless...

We had a great time.

GlassHalfFull
05-30-2008, 09:57 AM
I went for quantity, not quality, for the autographs. Probably the biggest name I got was Morlon Greenwood. I got in a bunch of short lines before the break and got 4 after.

I did get to meet Whiskeyrbl, he and I waited (and waited) for them to open the line we were in after the break.

And talk about hot, Jeff Zgonina is incredible looking in person. His pictures do NOT do him justice. :heart:

We had fun, mainly just went to mingle with the Texans faithful. :texflag:

The yellow shirts upstairs told us that the autograph lines would shut down at 7:15, but upstairs and downstairs. So we didn't even bother to stand in any of them (even though she was wrong about the downstairs sessions).

Got to see the team meeting room, which was cool. But we weren't supposed to be in there! We overheard some Texans employees talking about how there should have been gaurds at the doors to prevent people from entering.

I refuse to stand in a long line, just for an autograph, and the lines were horrible. My little grandson was disappointed he didn't get any on his football, but, he didn't want to stand in lline for two hours either. A long time for a little boy to wait.

Right after we went through the O-line room they closed it down. Wasn't suppose to be open in the first place, so we were told. There were some ticked off Texans brass standing around about that time. I was shocked that the room was open, and not surprised when they locked the door. BIG mistake on someones part!!

It was GREAT seeing all of you that I know by face and name, and I regret not getting to meet those of you I have never met in person before. Maybe another day!

I was disappointed in the entire event and probably will not go back next year unless they change some things. The only pic I wanted was Kris Brown, and I couldn't find out what time he was going to be there nor where he was going to be. Very poor organization of the event IMHO!!

The stage setup was a joke and the SHORT intro of the players followed by an almost inaudable SECONDS long speech by a few select players was laughable. Sorry if I sound negative this morning, but, it just was not worth the time and effort I spent in getting there. The only good thing about the event was the time I got to spend with my grandson's.

All in all, I was highly dissappointed in this year's event. All I wanted to get was Mario's autograph on a picture I got of him on the '06 Draft day... but I knew the 'top' players were going to be extremely hard to find and get their signatures.

It felt like people didn't know what line was for who and why they were standing there. Both lines on the floor were extremely long. I walked by the booth to see who was signing at that particular player and it was guys like Demps, CC Brown, etc. I thought if only these people knew they are standing in line for 8 hours to get CC Browns autograph. ha (no offense to those players).

I think there were A LOT more people there this year because of the lines and herd of people going through the locker room, training room, etc. Last year you could get right up on the players locker- this year they had ropes and only a 5ft space in the middle of the floor for 2 lines of people to walk through. I felt like I was a Cow and just following the herd to my demise.


I couldn't hear a lot of what the players were saying when they were on the stage. I missed what Mario said that made everybody laugh. Does anyone know what he said? I really wish I caught it because all the players were cracking up and Andre Johnson looked like a 1st grader that just heard somebody fart- funny stuff.

I was in the front row, and I hope that what came up showed up on the video I took.

Mario didn't say anything to make everyone laugh. I think what happened was that Dunta thought it would be funny to get the crowd to do another Mario chant. So he started chanting it, and then the crowd started chanting it, and it cracked everyone on stage up. It seemed to be a joke among them. I'll try to get the video up soonishly if the Texans don't post it.

All Access is way too hard to get autographs at, and besides I'm not into them. Toro signed a mini-helmet for my son with no line, and then we got up to the front of the stage to wait for the speeches. That's the best place to be during All Access.

All Access is best for touring the stadium and getting kiddo pictures with cheerleaders and stuff.

I was away from the internet since Thursday, first time I had to post them. I also got one of Owen Daniels and Mario & Chester but from a distance. Also got one of Dunta Robinson walking in from the player's parking lot. We were on the patio above the lot, I asked him how the leg was. I also yelled down to Chester and he waived, and we got Schaub's attention too. All as they were coming into the Stadium from the parking lot.

Wendy & I got quite a few signatures. She was happy to get any, while I "reserved" Jersey sigs to guys who had at least played a down for us. the rest got to sign a towel.

This 5 at a table thing was a colossally bad idea. Not only was the supposed "random distribution of players" a joke (90% of the big names were down on the floor among 3 tables), but bunching them the way they did made the line inhospitably long. The people that a.j. mentioned earlier in line included me & Wendy swapping-out before they even had the second group at the "Big Five" table...we never made it to the front before the event was over.

It was still fun and I'm glad we went (Never DID see Kat & Ted, but thanks for getting Wendy the beer!), but they really need more tables to prevent I-10-like traffic jams.

I'll get my rookie sigs & pics at the P&P breakfast. I can't wait! :splits: :photos:

You'll have to take some pictures of your memorabilia and post it on here for us to see sometime. It's great to have a collection of something, and Texans "stuff" is the only thing I can see myself actually collecting. (I've got a few hundred bucks worth of fishing lures, but that's stuff I use on a regular basis so it doesn't actually fit into the collection category.....it falls into the necissity group)
