San Antonio Watch Parties
 
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 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.

Re: SA Fans
 
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!

Re: SA Fans
 
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.

Re: SA Fans
 
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 01:58 PM

Re: SA Fans
 
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...

Re: SA Fans
 
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.

thanks...my head said Saturday but my hands typed Friday...

Re: SA Fans
 
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
