Shame on you people who sold your tickets yesterday for a few extra bucks to cowboy fan.
I was sickened by the number of cowboy fans in MY HOME TEAM's STADIUM!
I hope those of you who did it, and believe me a whole bunch of you did, don't ever renew your seats again. WE DON"T NEED HALF way fans!
Don't let the door hit you as you walk up I-45 north.

Or maybe there are a lot of Texans fans who's number 1 team is Dallas? I wouldn't be surprised given how many people I know in Houston who relocated here from other parts of Texas. For some of my friends, Dallas is their #1 team (NFC) and the Texans are #2 (AFC). It's not the case for everyone, but I'm sure that would explain a good amount given the lack of accomplishments on the Texan's part.

I would have been pissed if I had tickets to go to the game and I had turned down thousands of dollars to see that kind of effort.

Texans fans will be what we all want them to be when the Texans hold up their end of the bargain.

Anyone who doubts the quality of our city's appreciate for football needs to look at the Colts game. When the team comes out hungry, so do the fans

I'm a little confused. Are you saying Texans fans knew there would be a subpar effort and didn't come or they changed their loyalty once they got there and the team started stinking up the place?

I love Houston, but anyone who's honest with themselves knows its a bit of a fair weather sports town. I'm guessing Dallas fans had no problem getting tickets. I have been pricing them for the SD game and there are tons available at nearly face value. It is what it is.

Get used to it. As long as the Cowboys are relevant, and the Texans are not, you are going to see alot of Cowboy fans in our stadium.

I bet Bears fans fill up Ford Field when those 2 teams go at it.

What I find funny are these pathetic so called fans that think they can tell so many other fans how to root for their team and what they can and cannot do. Sorry, but anyone who has ever been to Reliant Stadium and seen the dedication from Houston fans, and then turns around and criticizes us are freaking clueless. Hell, we've put up with all of these horrible Capers seasons and mediocre Kubiak failures over the last few years, and yet the fans are still selling out stadiums and have a great atmosphere at Reliant stadium and tailgating. Texans fans have been through all types of problems in the 8 years that this organization has been around, and people are still rooting as hard as they can, and just because a bunch of Dallas fans show up to a game when they're a few hours away and one of the most popular teams in the sport, and here we've got random posters coming in here and blasting away at other fans who support the team.

And what's even more stupid as hell about this is that if we would have won, no one would have even cared about how many Dallas fans were there. SInce we lost, these guys want something to to whine about.

Not true, for me at least.

What the crowd told me was that a lot of Texans fans sold their tickets and chose a few hundred bucks over supporting their team.

I get broker seats and Dallas fans who otherwise support the Texans. But the shear number of Dallas fans stated that a lot of Texans fans took the money.

First, the players and coaches treated this game exactly like any other, or even less than any other, kills some of the mood. Whats the point in building a Texas rivalry if no one cares enough to even aknowledge it?

Second, I think the Texans fans would have seemed much greater in number if our team had been winning. You always notice the loudest fans. It seemed like there were a lot of Cowboys fans there watching the broadcast because they had a lot to cheer for. If we had come out guns blazing, Im sure the Texans fans would have been on their feet making the Cowboys fans who were there seem tiny in number.


I love Houston, but anyone who's honest with themselves knows its a bit of a fair weather sports town. I'm guessing Dallas fans had no problem getting tickets. I have been pricing them for the SD game and there are tons available at nearly face value. It is what it is.

Cowboys Texans tickets were going for 5x or more face value. People were selling hundred dollar seats for a thousand bucks.

This is not a fair weather city, and I hate having to continually defend that. We are a proud city, and we dont' like to cheer for garbage. Who can fault fans who don't want to buy in to a team that has spent 8 seasons building up to a 9-7 record.

The price of the Cowboys tickets is the perfect indication that this city wants desperately a team to cheer for. They want to love football. Its a 2 way street. The stadium has been sold out every single game.

Compare to getting a ticket to ANY Cleveland, Green Bay, Washington, Kansas City, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Denver etc...game. Even in 30 degree weather when they suck.

When I had season tickets to the Oilers, I could drive up to the stadium 15 minutes before kick-off with next to no traffic, walk into a 1/2 empty stadium, get a beer and still be in my seat before kick off. Of course when they got good, that always changed.

I'm not saying we don't have our share of die-hard fans (we do), but for a city the size Houston, the lean year support isn't near what it should be for any of the sports franchises.

I was able to purchase 4 tickets to the Redskins game last week in DC for $30 under face value for each ticket. I got the tickets off ebay, but stubhub had similar values.

It was 75 and beautiful that day, too, and they had just come off a win against Dallas.

I think perceptions can be a little misleading sometimes.

I think Texans fans (except during our 2-14 season), are pretty good in general

I can't afford season tickets and single gamers would even be a bit of a stretch for me.

I am more than deidcated to this team and city. Been on board since day 1. Anyone who knows me knows this and no one would doubt it for a second so there is no way I can prove that online to people who don't know me.

That said, I am greatful for the times I have been able to go and would never pass that up. But at the same time, I currently work 2 jobs just to stay a float and have extra money every month, so if I was fortunate enough to have season tickets and I knew I could make that kind of cash, I would have at least considered selling them too. I need the money. Those that needed the money I can't blame.

Just being honest.

However, I think what really bothers me more than anything was how the team kept blowing this game off as just another game. Get a grip guys.....:wadepalm:

You can't even call it fair weather, since we were 2-0 and people STILL sold their damn tickets to a big game. You see it every time you go to a game, people sitting on their hands and just kind of into it. It gets old.

Put that in context though. The population of Houston in the 70's was 1.2 Million. As a comparison, San Antonio's population today is around, 1.4 million. While those numbers represent actual city populations and not the Greater Areas, Sugar Land was a county stick town and Katy was way the hell out there. West Houston basically ended at Gessner.

I agree.

But I believe (not based on any facts) that the actual number of Texans fans in the city is pretty small (for such a large population).

But until

a) we win or
b) a generation has been raised on the Texans (we're getting close to that!)

I think it's hard to have mass appeal.

And we'll always be fighting the fact Houston is a transplant city.

PLzzz answer me this

This is the Texans ninth season. I've had the same seats for NINE years and know just about EVERYONE around me, including what seats are ticketmaster seats, corp seats, or PSLs that are owned by PEOPLE who sell their seats for profit! My section, 116, BULLPEN was over half full with Cowboy fans. It got that way because PSL owners either sold their tickets to stub-hub, ticketmaster, or privately, to make money. That's their business. The guy behind me on row C sold his on e-bay for 440 bucks per seat. Point is! Those of us who are diehards and never miss a game, KNOW who our seat buddies are.

I've sold my seats several times, for face value, and only to a TEXAN fan. I make sure of that. I was offered $1000 for two of my seats on row N, by a Cowboy fan. I refused to sell. Another guy, a Texan fan, offered me 500 bucks for those 2 seats, he backed out, and I'm glad. I had a disgusting feeling even thinking about selling my tickets for that much money, even though it sure would have boosted my playoff kitty. I'm not opposed to fans making money off their tickets if they need to, that's their business. I just wish they would be loyal enough to sell to TEXAN fans and not opposing teams fans. Read this board! There are always Texan fans looking for tickets, so why sell to the enemy!

This ^^^^^

Whenever I've had an extra ticket, I don't put it up on Stub Hub or anything like that. I bring it to our tailgate and ultimately someone needs a seat. Since Blue Crewers are all Texans fans, I know a Texans fan will be in that seat. See JB for the Cowpokes game.

The people on either side and above us have become "friendly" over the years, and I would feel like I was letting them down by bringing in non Texans fan.

Thats interesting. My away game experiences are limited to this past one at DC and Carolina (thats a stadium that is EASY to get tickets to!)

I was very happy with our DC ticket prices. We paid $45 a ticket for $79 facevalue tickets. And on ebay too, so no fees.

Redskins still have a long wait for season tickets, but maybe the recession is hitting them hard

I stood at the top of section 116-117 (this is the aisle between the two sections that make the Bullpen) for a long time Sunday, and just watched people. I was stunned by what I saw. Not only was the Bullpen packed with Cowboy fans, the number of Texan fans (wearing Texan gear anyway) pulling for the Cowboys was jaw dropping. I truly did not know what to think, or say. Kay walked up to me and all I could do was shake my head, I truly wanted to puke, just like you said. I've been on the Bullpen Committee for nine years now, and I am truly disgusted with the Bullpen members and their lack of loyalty. These are SUPPOSE to be your DIEHARD fans, the one's who stand the entire game, yell and scream until you can't talk, fans that live TEXAN talk on a daily basis, dress in crazy gear, don't take crap off anyone from another team, the Texans FAN ZONE, equal to the Black Hole, the Dawg Pound, the Hawks Nest. Some of them sold out for a few bucks, plain and simple. In our defense, a lot of this is the Texans fault! We have been BEGGING them from the beginning to do whatever it takes to remove ticketmaster and broker seats from the Bullpen. They CAN relocate them if they wanted to, they just haven't done it.

I'm done with ranting! Time to move on and see what the Raiders Black Hole will do to our Texans come Sunday!!

Get used to it. As long as the Cowboys are relevant, and the Texans are not, you are going to see alot of Cowboy fans in our stadium.

I bet Bears fans fill up Ford Field when those 2 teams go at it.

Hell, Bears fans filled up Cowboys Stadium last Sunday. You could hear their yells loud and clear.

I brought this here for one thing and one thing only, the so called 'fans' who sold their tickets for cheap easy bucks to dallas fan. If you went to the game, like I did and like I have been going for the past 82 games, this isn't meant for you.

BUT, if you did sell out, then this IS meant for you.

Look, it's been tough for 9+ seasons now, but either you are a fan or you are not. If the team sucks, it sucks, but you still support your team. I get tired of this statement...'oh, as soon as the Texans do this or win this...blah blah blah..."

SUPPPORT YOUR TEAM or BEAT IT!
But the number of cowboy fans in Reliant yesterday was an embarrassment.

Shame on you people who sold your tickets yesterday for a few extra bucks to cowboy fan.
I was sickened by the number of cowboy fans in MY HOME TEAM's STADIUM!
I hope those of you who did it, and believe me a whole bunch of you did, don't ever renew your seats again. WE DON"T NEED HALF way fans!
Don't let the door hit you as you walk up I-45 north.
SICKENING!

sigh.. tired of these threads.. Yah people sold tickets so what their were plenty of fans cheering on the texans, if the Texans had taken care of business you would have been posting about how you got to make fun of all the cowboy fans on the way out..

Get over it.. It's called capitalism..

Classic.

Why do people feel the need to question other people's dedication?

Must be one of the "Sports Fan Messageboard Laws"

Do you notice these threads only pop up after a home LOSS. (Example titans home games)

For some reason, Texans fans and people on this board always have a very different view after the fact than what actually happend.

Yes there were way too many cowboys fans and a lot of them but the thing is, I expected that. I actually thought Texans fans before the game and during he first half represented(wore Texans stuff/got into the game/great tailgating before the game) very well and I was proud to be a Texans fan.

Did you hear how loud and how crazy Texans fans were going during intros and during the 1st quarter!?
It was insane, the whole bottom level stood the majority of the first half.
That all changed once the cowboys started killing us then all you saw was cowboys fans cheering because they actually had something to cheer about.

It was sickening having to take all he smack from the cowboys fans but since most texans fans won't stand up for their team I figured I would and every time the cowboys fans started cheering I would let them know that they had only won one game and we still had a better record.

One cowboys fan told me "No one likes Houston at all except the people that live in Houston" and that "we will never won a superbowl" he also added "that the cowboys did not get beat but they beat themselves the first 2 games". This is why I hate cowboys fans and Dallas teams.

I also was one of those people who paid $700 for two tickets in section 111 and a blue parking pass since my step-dad ended up using his tickets for the first half of the game :thinking:

I think that Houston has great fans but for some reason if things get tough they are scared to stand up and still have pride in their team.

There are always Texan fans looking for tickets, so why sell to the enemy!

Then why weren't they buying up all of the tickets that were for sale or outbidding Cowboys fans on eBay, etc? They had just as much of a chance to get them as Cowboys fans.

I don't believe anybody here could tell me what to do or what not to do with season tickets that I owned. I can't imagine what I would do to a person spouting off at me in real life about what I should do with something I paid money for.
