I hate to admit it, but the fans own some of this terrible loss. This game was embarasing. I'm a dislocated Texan living in Georgia. I have to go into a hostile stadium each year to root for my home team. Why the hell would so many Texans season ticket holders sell their tickets to cowgirl fans? I'm disgusted! Every camera angle shows nothing but cowgirl fans throughout the stadium. Looks like we are just the expansion franchise we are made out to be in the media. I'm ashamed! I guess I will just put on my Romo jersey (just lost a bet) and smile as we're are referred to as joke again. The limelight was nice for a week.

I'm also a dislocated Texans fan (from Massachusetts, going to school in Boston) and I absolutely do not think we're a joke. We lost a game that meant a ton more to the other team in terms of their season & their coaches job. This game will probably end up having 0 significance in our season. We're still 1st in the south, we still have a direct game on the Colts, and we can still be 3-1 without one of our defensive anchors. We've been unfortunate enough to have our defense exposed because we're playing three premere offenses to start the season.

Agreed. If this defense gets shredded by Oakland next week, we'll KNOW that they really are pretty bad. Until then, I think the other teams' QBs deserve some credit.

Agreed, we are not a joke, but this one would have been huge and while it might have meant more to them, it doesnt appear that in meant much to our guys as a whole. I will still be wearing my Texans Jersey at whatever the Jags are calling their stadium now, but I really expected more on both sides of the ball. I expected MUCH more from the stands.

oh no i agree im disapointed in this effort overall. after last week I thought this was a no quit, gritty squad. They still very well might be, but they looked a little shell shocked after the long drive by the cowboys and hung their heads a little .. oh well, move on, win some more games, and throw away this effort.

That really is expansion talk. I understand your point, but are we still "just trying to hang around." I feel this team is ready to step up and If I were a player looking at the sea of Cowgirl fans in the audiance, I would have been dissappointed.

I really don't think that is has been the QB play that has beat us. Those 3 are great QBs but our sub-standard coverage was the main reason we got lit up.

I think more to the point, the Texans are a team that the best QBs in the league can torch, and the Texans have indeed seen three of the top-tier QBs in the NFL in their first three weeks.

Again, if they get shredded by Oakland next week, than they ARE that bad.

We have a damn good offense, but it got shut down today. It happens you know. That Any Given Sunday shit ain't shit, it's real.

The problem is our defensive secondary, which is beyond bad. I think it's worse than last year's secondary. But, I think it will improve as the season goes along. I predicted 10-6 and sneaking into the wild card playoffs this year, and I'll be damn happy with that and I still think it's doable.

I hate losing to the Cowpies, but it's done now. We got bigger fish to fry in our future anyway.

As a person who goes to Texans games on the road (only because I have to) I understand that oposing fans are part of the game, but the damn bullpen was full of cowgirl fans. Look, it didn't cost us the game, but it was just as humiliating as the loss.

I wasn't in the bull pen but I was suprised that my section (353) had far fewer Cowturd fans than were at the preseason game. And my section usually houses a lot of opponent's fans.

I will say, though, that most Cowboy fans were reasonable after the game. However, there were 2 or 3 fans that had no class. Every other team I've seen has been very respectful. One piece of sh*t started talking crap to a family of 4 with a 5 year old sitting behind me. It made me sick, and I probably should have punched him in the crotch.

You know what? My folks have tickets and take me a couple times a year...they asked me if I wanted to go or have 400 bucks for "my" ticket. I said I'm going to the game with no hesitation. Me and my dad had a blast, no matter what the score. Frankly, I'd rather sit next to the Cowboy fan than the Texan fan behind me. On the FIRST play of the game, a defensive start, he asked us to sit down.

Texan Fandom: It's Just Been REVOKED!!!

Oh and if you don't think I turned around and screamed at the top of my lungs HOW BOUT YOU STAND UP CUZ YOU GOT LEGS you don't know me at all.

The Texans lost the game, or rather the Cowboys won it. Good game Cowboys, Good luck the rest of the way out. Cowboy fan say your piece, you've got the right to do that and then it's time to get ready for Oakland. Hopefully next week we won't be seeing so much "THE TEXANS HAVE ARRIVED!" coverage. It does a young team very little good to hear that.

I don't blame the fans for the loss, but, I can assure you, a huge % of the Cowboy fans there today are Texan fans except when we play the boys. They simply have not converted, same as all the freaking Titan fans who show up when we play them. That's what bothers me the most, and why I think we have such a flakey fan base.. We have a few hundred hardcore fans and the rest are bandwagoners. JMO!!

The Bullpen was full of Cowboy fans today. The top 15 rows of section 116 was solid Cowboy blue!! THose are Texan fans who are PSL owners who pulled for the boys today. Personally, they make me sick, but, it's their right to pull for whoever they want. Just make up your freaking mind. If your a Cowboy fan, FINE, pull for them, but, give up those PSLs to a diehard TEXAN fan. Truthfully, I don't give a crap about your "fandom" to the Texans.

There shouldn't have been that many Cowboy fans in the stadium period. Texans fans should have been buying those tickets & they never should have made their way to the Cowgirls.

It was pathetic how much noise was going on when our offense was on the field. NO Doubt, it was louder when our D was on, but with the roof closed, it was loud enough on offense... I think.

Next time the Jets play Giants, I'm going to look to see how many Giant fans are there. I highly doubt it will be as bad as what we had today.

Just some quick thoughts on the game from TBB.


Quick thoughts after the Texans are bullied by the Dallas Cowboys 27 – 13:

Eric Winston, Chris Meyers along with the rest of the O-line (except for a stellar Rashad Butler), joined an injured Okoye, a sick Antonio Smith, an Invisible Mario Williams and a tiny Brice McCain and the rest of the flat footed Houston Texans fell to the bigger, stronger and more desperate Dallas Cowboys.

I suggest we panic immediately. Season ticket holders should sell. Life as we know it has come to an end.

Given the history of the Texans, I’d probably panic too. It’s not like the Texans have a history of satisfying their fans.

After three games we are 2-1. I’ll take it for now. I might just ***** about it later.

I'm usually a lurker, but I figured I'd reply. The players are the ones who win/lose games, but come on. You could of not asked for a better situation than today's game. Texans were finally getting tons of attention from across the nation and on a winning streak, our arch rivals from up north coming in for a game in which meant so much to both teams and to see that many Dallas fans was a shocker.

Being misplaced here in New Orleans and have been to few Saints games and I will tell you, 99.9% of fans at games are Saints fans. It doesnt happen here that the stadium is filled with the other teams fans. Not that people dont want to attend the games, it is just hard to get tickets. I guarentee there were not too many Falcon fans in the stadium today.

I'll admit it, I didnt really notice the difference until you live in a city where the fans are trully fanatical.

If this ain't you JB, butt out. I'm sure there are millions of people around Houston that have legit reasons for not making the games, & I don't have a problem with that.

But how much better are we, than the Jags if we have tens of thousands of Cowboy fans in PSL seats?

Repped

Look at the CheeseHeads. Try getting a Packer fan to sell his tickets to a Bears fan or Vikings fan. Good luck with that.

I guess maybe there are too many transplants in Houston - and the Texans are too young as a franchise - for them to have developed a true, diehard fanbase.

I think shetexan nailed it on the head about the bullpen.. lots of people are Texan fans and Cowboy fans until they play each other and in this case a lot like the cowboys over the Texans.

I have a favorite AFC team (obviously) and a favorite NFC team (Dallas). I like the teams from the state until Dallas plays the Texans then screw Dallas

but to say the fans are to blame on the loss, No.. cowboys completed their 3rd down opportunities when it seemed the crowd was loud and Houston, well 3 of the Cowboys sacks was on 3rd down when the crowd was quiet.

if anything calmed the crowd down, it was the ho-hum way the Texans played and gradually it filtered from the players and the more and more the score got out of reach, it filtered to the Texan fans until all you could hear was the Cowboy fans that were enjoying it

This is a stupid thread. A good 20% of the stadium's seats are owned by ticket scalpers - both individuals and companies. It's what happens when you put an expansion team in a major market and build a new stadium. A lot of people and companies bought tickets or extra tickets as an INVESTMENT. At a game like the cowboys, they start cashing in. Tickets were going for $1500 and up EACH. It's not the fans' fault the stadium had a large number of cowboys fans; it's just the nature of the business in the 21st century. People make investments; people expect reward. I'm not condoning it and I certainly don't like it, but like mosquitoes, humidity and traffic in Houston, we have to deal with it.

I'm more irritated by the fact that the team owns so many seats in the Bull Pen. THAT section was supposed to be by the fans, for the fans and full of fans, yet they own 10-20% of those seats and give them away to fair weather fans who show up late and leave early. Blasphemy.

The fans need to shut the &^%$ up when the team is on offense. I don't understand why this is so damn difficult to comprehend. I'm beginning to come to the conclusion that a large percentage of the people who attend the game are morons.

It sounded as if the Cowboy fans were getting loud when we were on offense... then the Texans fans tried to out-loud them.

Really? You telling me to butt out when you say my city sucks? Again, you can kiss my ass! I was at the game. Were you? Most of the cowgurl fans there are Texans fans all except for once every 4 years.

Again, the fans did not lose this game.

Tell me to kiss your ass?? well you can suc....

Are we really going to do this on the internet??

& of course I was at the game. Again, if you were at the game, I'm not talking to or about you. It would be nice if most Houstonians were like you, but it's pretty clear, that they are not.

Do you know who the Red Rowdies are? The group the Jeff Van Gundy started? With his own money? Why & where has a coach had to do something like that other than Houston?

The Packers have 3 Superbowls
The Broncos have 2 Superbowls
The Steelers have 6 Superbowls
The Saints have 1 Superbowl
The Cowboys have 5 Superbowls
The Colts have 1 Superbowl
The Buccaneers have 1 Superbowl
The Ravens have 1 Superbowl

My point is... You can't blame the fans for leaving, especially
when this team has a history (VERY RECENT ONE at that) of
punching its own fans in the gut by coming out flat during "BIG"
home games. The Colts game is an anomaly until they start proving
otherwise to a large portion of this fanbase.

So, which team were you rooting for? I'm really not sure.

There is a huge problem with the fans at Reliant Stadium if the noise is louder when the offense is on the field. That's pretty messed up.

If your a Cowboy fan, FINE, pull for them, but, give up those PSLs to a diehard TEXAN fan. Truthfully, I don't give a crap about your "fandom" to the Texans.

I'm sure all those fans are heart-broken that you don't approve. They'll probably sell their seats in shame.

I agree that the final outcome ultimately falls on the players, but being at the game yesterday, I thought it was completely unacceptable that when our offense was in 3rd down situations the stadium was just as loud as our defensive situations. It was ridiculous

I don't approve, and I really don't care what they think!! It gets OLD sitting around "TEXAN" fans UNTIL we play the Cowboys, Colts, Jags, Saints, TITANS, ETC!!! I see this nearly every freaking Sunday, depending on who we play! IF your a Texan fan then BE ONE!! I'm a passionate Niner fan, and have been one since I was 15 yrs old!! BUT, when we play them I want us to beat the hell out of them. SO this EXCUSE of I like the Texans, BUT, I've been a Cowboy fan all my life, just does not set well with me. That's JMO!!!

They should be ashamed!!! Is there no such thing as loyalty? What's wrong with saying I'M a TEXAN fan now, I still like the Cowboys, Colts, Titans, etc, but, THIS is my team now, THIS is OUR HOUSE, and I'll give them 100% of my fandom when we are at home??? Would I go buy PSLs at the Niner stadium and then go there and yell for the Texans? Not on your life!

I'll admit I'm very old fashioned, and this younger generation way of thinking confuses me. I'm just saying if WE ARE AT HOME and you call yourself a TEXAN fan, then be one in your own house. JMO!!

I'm talking about the Houstonians who are waiting for the Texans to do something before they'll be "fans"

I would NOT be a PSL owner, therefore I would pull for the Texans. IF I was a PSL owner, I would pull for the Niners. That would never happen to me, and I say "me" because this is JMO, I know others disagree, and that's fine. I would not own seats in someone elses house and pull for the opposing team. NOW, if I lived in SF and bought PSLs for the Niners, I would support them 100%, even if they played the Texans, and I remained a passionate Texan fan. I would respect their house, and their fans. I'm old fashioned, that's just me.

The way I see it, if the fans want to be the 12th man, the home-field advantage... If we tell the Cowboys (& their fans, "We are going to kick your ass!" Then we're part of the team. We don't expect those guys to quit for 4 Qtrs, then we shouldn't quit on them, for 60 minutes.

If Peyton Manning has to use a timeout, loses the play-clock, or if their players commit false starts, or are confused about the changed play... if we're going to say all that happened because of the fans making noise... then we need to take some blame for only one false start (when our team had 2)...

I'm not saying it's all on the fans... this team didn't do a good job of winning new fans yesterday..... they may have even lost a few.

Texan Bill called me un-American when I suggested that more people came to the MLS All-Star Game to see Man-U than the American players because of the popularity of Manchester.

The same is for the Cowboys. They are the most popular football team in the world, of course they will get a ton of fans. Its not really humiliating to say that (thousands of VY fans taking over Reliant is though).

I am a Cowboys and Texans fan, so the game was good for me either way. Most people my age in Houston grew up on the Cowboys. Sorry, but Earl retired before we understood football, and no one gave a shit about the Oilers after that.

Its simple math, there are more Cowboys fans in Texas and surrounding states than there are Texans fans

I didn't start watching football until that coach from Port Arthur, Texas (my home town) won the Super Bowl with the Cowboys. I was a fan of that team, until Michael Irvin, and others got out of hand. Then Jerrah ditching Jimmy & hiring a string of yes men made me a Saints fan. I was (am) a huge Ricky Williams' fan. I pulled for the Saints from then until Joe Horn was let go.

The Oilers were irrelevant to me. To me, they were known as perrenial losers. I know that wasn't always the case. But rooting for the Oilers, which I did, simply because they were from Texas, has always been like rooting for A&M. Irrelevant, for a good part of my adulthood.

I was pleased when the Oilers took their history & name, & everything else with them, & the Texans decided to make a clean break. I was wishy washy about Houston when they named Capers as their HC. It made sense to me, if he had learned from his mistakes in Carolina...

I jumped in with both feet when they hired Kubiak, bought my season tickets in '06. I liked Denver's offense & loved the idea of bringing that to Houston. I liked that Kubiak was from Houston, and thought Mcnair was trying to give this team real Houston roots.

I don't care so much, that we lost the game (I didn't think we would go undefeated, & this game has little post season implications). It's the way we lost the game.

Our offense is supposed to be among the best in the league, and we couldn't score more than 6 points when it mattered.

Look at the CheeseHeads. Try getting a Packer fan to sell his tickets to a Bears fan or Vikings fan. Good luck with that.

I guess maybe there are too many transplants in Houston - and the Texans are too young as a franchise - for them to have developed a true, diehard fanbase.

I've got much respect for Packer Nation. They have something special up there, something ingrained into their DNA, something in their core that they pass from generation to generation. It is much to be admired.

The Texans have a long, long way to go before they can even be mentioned in the same breath, though. First, they have to win some games, a LOT of games. Then they have to actually win something tangible, starting with a division title, then a conference championship, and onward and upward to the Super Bowl trophy. That is how rabid fan bases are made, not by slick marketing campaigns.

I'd love to see it happen here, but we've got a few decades to go before we can even begin to compare to a legendary place like Green Bay.

Fair weather? I didn't have any interest in football until the Cowboys won the Super Bowl. I followed players & coaches when I couldn't stand Dallas any more.

Ricky Williams went to Miami & I couldn't see becoming a Miami fan. The Texans hired Kubiak, and now I'm a Texans fan....

Am I here to stay? That is the question, and one in which I agree there may be some doubt.

But I bought my PSL & season tickets 4 years ago, I've gotten to know this team, it's fans, it's owner, & it's coaches, & this feels like home.

But look up Port Arthur on the map, I've got just as much reason to be a Cowboy fan or a Saints fan as I do a Houston fan (if we're going by geographic location).

& I stopped following the Saints the year they let go of Joe Horn, the year after they went to the NFC championship... so it's not like I jumped on the wagon when they started winning. I jumped off when they did.

I hate to admit it, but the fans own some of this terrible loss. This game was embarasing. I'm a dislocated Texan living in Georgia. I have to go into a hostile stadium each year to root for my home team. Why the hell would so many Texans season ticket holders sell their tickets to cowgirl fans? I'm disgusted! Every camera angle shows nothing but cowgirl fans throughout the stadium. Looks like we are just the expansion franchise we are made out to be in the media. I'm ashamed! I guess I will just put on my Romo jersey (just lost a bet) and smile as we're are referred to as joke again. The limelight was nice for a week.


You could place the blame where it belongs.

This was a grand opportunity for the Texans team to shut up all those dullas fans and they didn't. Instead they laid a egg and fed the obnoxious dullas's fans feeding frenzy.

I attended the game and was amazed at the Texans fans love for their team.

The parking lot was a sight to behold. It looks like thousands of man hours were spent setting up tailgates, large pits fired up and cooking and fan's getting their game faces on.

These same fans then went into the stadium and cheered the team on during every second of the game.

Early on the dullas fans just sat there on their hands not saying a word.

The Texans fans aren't the ones who gave dullas fans something to cheer about. Our horned helmeted players did that.

dullas fans were quiet until things shifted into their favor and then they just got mouthier and mouthier as the game wore on. The fans are the ones who had to listen to it, not the players who caused it, so place the blame where it lies.

There could have been 50,000 dullas fans there and if the Texans had tended to business they would have been silent, so don't blame the fans.

I gained a new respect for Texan fans today seeing all that they put into the game day experience and then sitting in a hot parking lot for over an hour packing up and fighting the traffic to get home.

I could not do it week after week, year after year for no more return on investment than what they receive.

But that's just me. A fair weather fan, who's waiting for the good weather.

I took the good hearted ribbing in stride, but the drunk trash talking in front of women and children was completely assinine and thoughtless.

I hope our fans do not behave this way at others stadiums, but some probably do.

A young couple from dullas walked by me and the girl remarked to me "how about them cowboys" which was apporpiate enough. I just remarked back that it must be a relief that she could "finally celebrate their first win". No harm, no foul, no insults.

First off, if we lost a few fans just because we lost to a stacked Cowboys team when we're still 2-1 with a win over the COlts and a great come from behind victory on the Redskins, then good. The hell with those fans that jump ship over one loss. They aren't real fans any way. Good riddance.

And I don't understand this excessive whining from you and a few others in this thread about the fans. DO you have any idea at all at how much money a lot of fans spent to attend this Texans and Cowboys game with the way that the prices jumped up? DO you have any idea how much extra money people had to pay for parking passes in the Blue Lot just for this one game where everyone got gouged and still paid their hard earned money and rooted for this team? This blaming stuff on the fans in this thread is just weak.

And I'm with JB, quit your complaining about Houston as a sports town. We've got tons of dedicated fans, but there is and always will be a lot of Cowboys fans all in this city and all over this state. I don't know what's so hard to understand about that. It's nothing new. I see people wearing Cowboys gear every day. Of course there was going to be a lot of Cowboys fans out there yesterday. Their city is just a few hours away. I could care less though. I root for the Texans from at the game or from my couch. And no one is a better fan for going to a game. That's ridiculous.

We lost a game and we're 2-1. We've played 3 good teams. You can't expect to win every single week.

Aside from my earlier comment about the home fans and loud noise during offensive possessions, I figured I'd mention how I used to deal with the opposing fans I sat next to. My seats were next to a broker-owned pair of seats and the people who sat there were always for the opposing team, save twice. So I always made sure to smile, welcome them in, and thank them for financially supporting the Texans. I would then advise them to buy extra beer and nachos.

The looks I got were priceless.

SheTexan, I agree with your points pretty much down the line, but I am also a NY Giants fan, have been since I was a little kid.. Having moved to Houston after getting out of the service back in '92, I still rooted for NY even though the Oilers were still here. Never much took up with them, so I don't know much about them or the hatred at Adams.. I just nod my head and say I can see your point.
Now as for NY, well as we know they will be here in 2 weeks and I will be wearing my NY jersey. Now I hear about it from the guys around me in our section, I get it and respect it, and I still get a little grief about it when I am wearing Texans gear every other week. But 1x every 4 years I will pull out the NY gear and wear it. Does it make me less of a Texans fan? I can root for both, and I will be happy either way AND a little disappointed as well.. Do I want Houston to win, of course I do, do I want NY to win, again, or course. I just take it as having 2 kids playing on opposite teams playing each other. I will have NY jersey on and a Texans hat on...
Yeah, not supposed to be on the fence, commit to one or the other, but 35 years as a true blue fan of NY and 8 years of a fan of the home team, I am sorry, to me it's a push..But know this, I was disgusted with the amount of fans who sold out to make money off the Cowboys game. I know it is their tickets and they have that right to do so, but I never would have thought there would have been that many who did.
At least I will be there and not sell mine to a NY fan, I could not do that.. I will take my lumps by the others in my area, and I expect that, but I would rather it be me than someone else.

Nothing like get heckled in the Bullpen and walking around in your home stadium and you simply have to keep your mouth shut because they out number you.

Hell, since you're in the middle you seem to have the attitude where you'll root for any team that suits what you want to see at the time. How long are you going to root for the Texans? If SA got a team would they become your guys next?

I admit I have been more a fan of the game, players & coaches than teams... I don't have the luxury of living in a city with a pro team. It took me a little while to find what it was that I wanted to root for. Good character, & good football. As long as the Texans keep delievering that, I'll be here.

You've got me confused with someone else. I thought I made it very clear I don't have a problem with the fans. I have no problem with the people who support their team.

I'll just agree to disagree. I think history speaks for itself. Oilers, Astros, Dynamo, Rockets, Dynamo...




Again, It's not that we lost the game, it's how we lost. Only 6 points when it mattered.
Then why do I feel lumped into the 'millions' you were talking about? Simply because I visit this board? So does OrangeLotPole8. I have been blasted for selling my tickets to a dirty cowpie fan on more than one occasion this week. Even via text messaging. It's like... what the hell? Is that even what happened let alone whether or not if I even deserved that? Even Texans fans were being dishonest with me (you know who you are) trying to get these tickets off my hands. Thanks for the benefit of doubt folks!! Friggin' morons.

You can rationalize all you want but you're as fair weathered as they come. This thread blows and right now you blow very much!

Indeed.. Nailed it !! Up in Gridiron it was the same way.. Very sad when you have to walk in your own stadium as if you are an outcast.. I hated hearing the crap being yelled and the laughter..it was awful !

My wife kept me quiet by reminding me it's like responding to a bully, they WANT the attention.

Though their heckling was pretty weak:

"hey, the Vikings are up North"

(after stopping and taking a photo with a stranger) "what, are you signing autographs next?" (internal response - why yes, I have cards and when I am priveleged to go places as a fan and sign things for kids bringing a smile to their face, it's pretty frickin' awesome!)

Fair weather? I didn't have any interest in football until the Cowboys won the Super Bowl. I followed players & coaches when I couldn't stand Dallas any more.

Ricky Williams went to Miami & I couldn't see becoming a Miami fan. The Texans hired Kubiak, and now I'm a Texans fan....

Am I here to stay? That is the question, and one in which I agree there may be some doubt.

But I bought my PSL & season tickets 4 years ago, I've gotten to know this team, it's fans, it's owner, & it's coaches, & this feels like home.

But look up Port Arthur on the map, I've got just as much reason to be a Cowboy fan or a Saints fan as I do a Houston fan (if we're going by geographic location).

& I stopped following the Saints the year they let go of Joe Horn, the year after they went to the NFC championship... so it's not like I jumped on the wagon when they started winning. I jumped off when they did.

I don't know what map you are looking at but last time I checked PA is about an hour and a half from Houston, 4 and a half hours to NO, and 5 and a half hours from Dallas.

Come on man!:foottap:

I have to say as my first and probably only Texans game at Reliant I was pretty underwhelmed by the support the Texans got.

I was up in the top level on the Cowboys side of the field and I would say about 40% of the seats up there were Cowboys fans and they were far more passionate than the Texans fans up there.

With all the hype before the game about how the fans were going to set new records for the nosiest stadium, I was hugely disappointed. I've been in crowds, outside, of about a third of the number of people who have been louder than the crowd on Sunday.

While I don't really buy the fact fan support has much impact on the result of the games, I'm a little sad at the passion on display.

I'm sure there are millions of people around Houston that have legit reasons for not making the games, & I don't have a problem with that.

Growing up in the LYB era, I had an intense hatred for the Steelers. These days, the Texans play the Steelers at least as often as the Cowboys, but I can't seem to muster up any dislike for the Steelers. Maybe it's because they have six rings instead of five. I don't know.

Or maybe it's because Cowboy fans are pretty universally loathed, and it has nothing to do with the team itself.

I think you fully understand the meaning of "millions" for a stadium that holds 70,000 people. But hey... I wouldn't want to pick on you here or anything.

And you didn't come by the Blue Crew!!!!? I'm disappointed I didn't get to meet you Kiwi!! If I had known you were at Reliant I would have made a trip up to the nosebleed section and said HOWDY!! Maybe next time. Please don't judge Texan fans by what you saw on Sunday. For some reason that was a very strange day, like one I've never seen before at Reliant, and I've attended every home game there. I'm thinking maybe they need to have Texan/Dallas games at some neutral stadium, maybe Austin or San Antonio. I didn't like what I saw Sunday, not at all.

San antonio nor austin are neutral. Has to be out of state. Dallas owns Texas. What about El Paso?

Maybe within the next four years our Texans will make some progress and we won't have to worry about it. Maybe we just need a THIRD team in SA or Austin! That would put a muzzle on all those Cowboy fans up there!

I've lost some of my Steeler hatred, not much though. ;) Then again, I'm a guy that still hates the Dodgers from the old NL West v. Astros days. That said, I have way more respect for the Steeler organization than I do that franchise in Oklahoma. At least Steeler fans can name folks like Mike Webster or Rocky Bleier. Half those asshats last Sunday would look at you like a deer in the headlights if you asked them who Cliff Harris was.

I've grown apathetic about the Cowboys over the past couple of years. It's most likely a direct correlation to the growing hatred I have for the Titans.

However, that being said, this thread makes me really despise Cowboys fans.

One time many years ago someone really tried hard to convince me to root for the Cowboys because they were a Texas team. I tried for a second, but then felt really nasty and dirty as a result. I had to mouth wash with a gallon of bleach and hydrochloric acid while I squeegeed my brain with some 120 grit sandpaper. I still get cold sweats sometimes from that experience. Never again!

There's no such thing as a neutral stadium for the Cowboys. Outside of Reliant, there's not a stadium in the Country that's not gonna result in a ridiculous numerical advantage to the Cowboys. Most places would end up being as much of a neutral field for the Texans as Miller Park was a couple of years ago when Ike forced us to play the Cubs there.

Besides, the only neutral site games I can ever remember the NFL playing (with the obvious exception of Super Bowls) are the games in London, and if you go international, you're pitting us against the team that's hands down the most popular and well known NFL team in the world.

I've been posting my feelings about this in other threads, so I'll just leave it alone here. Until we support our team 100% we will remain the flakiest fans in the NFL. We'll NEVER be like GB or even the Raiders!! Hell, as much as we rag on Raider fans for being intimidating, I wish to hell and back that we were more like them!!

Amen to that. I always go with my face painted and with my big sombrero with horns and people will actually say "I hope I'm not sitting next to him. He's gonna be loud" or they will even sshhsshh me and wave in a motion that is asking me to sit down (on defense).

Yeah - the Cowboys already had that happen. As much as I abhor them, I wouldn't wish that on them again.

And yeah, I'm gonna root for Dallas in week 5. I heard someone call into CP's show yesterday just ranting about how horrible it was that the Texans apparently don't understand the Houston/Dallas rivalry. CP asked him if he had the option to reverse the results of the Colts and Cowboys game would he do it. The guy took about a nano-second to respond that he would. First, I think the guy showed the emotional maturity of a 6 year old (with apologies to 6 year olds), but I also question either the loyalty or the brains of any fan who when asked (essentially) "Would you rather be tied for first place in the division, or tied for second place in the division" responds that he would prefer to be tied for second.

I hate to admit it, but the fans own some of this terrible loss. This game was embarasing. I'm a dislocated Texan living in Georgia. I have to go into a hostile stadium each year to root for my home team. Why the hell would so many Texans season ticket holders sell their tickets to cowgirl fans? I'm disgusted! Every camera angle shows nothing but cowgirl fans throughout the stadium. Looks like we are just the expansion franchise we are made out to be in the media. I'm ashamed! I guess I will just put on my Romo jersey (just lost a bet) and smile as we're are referred to as joke again. The limelight was nice for a week.

Weak.

The only way this loss would've fallen on the fans is if some of them came out of the stands to play in the secondary. Which, at this point I'm almost willing to believe that might be an upgrade.
