Crowd at Bears game
 
In the clips I've seen it appears it wasn't a packed house at Reliant on Saturday. Was it because of preseason or is the popularity dwindling? I hope it's not the latter. I'd hate to think people gave up on the Texans. Thoughts guys/gals?

It's most likely just the fact that it's the preseason. In all the games I've watched so far, I haven't seen any stadium even close to filling all of its seats.

I was at the game and again the dumb#ss home fans wouldn't shut the hell up (on snaps after a exciting previous play) when the offense was on the field.

I couldn't remember if it was Schaub or Sage, (too much beer at the tailgate), but the QB was even waiving his hands down to try to tell the crowd to shut the hell up.

For as much as the fans in this city bash the team, I really wish the football IQ of the fans would rise a little. Houston has some of the stupidest fans in the country.

It was very well attended for a preseason game. It started to clear out in the 4th quarter but all levels were pretty full at peak. The Club level (300 sidelines) is never full and those red seats are more noticeable when empty. Maybe that's what you saw.

There was a decent crowd. By no means were every seat filled, but I'd say 85%+?

And yes, the crowd was cheering when we were on offense WAY too loud at a few poiints :(

It's a problem, no doubt. But to be fair, there were a lot of Bear fans in the endzone area. And they were a noisy bunch.

I totally agree with you that fans need to learn when to shut the hell up, BUT, I do want to point out that the Bears fans made a hell of a lot of noise when our offense was on the field. I'm not saying it was ALL them, but, I definitely noticed how loud they were. I sit in the Bullpen about halfway up in section 116. I was SURROUNDED by Bears fans that stood up most of the game, and made their presence known. I also noticed huge groups of Bears fans on the visitors side that knew what to do, when! I'm NOT saying it was all their fault either, but, they certainly added to the noise level at times. Add in ignorant TEXAN fans, and it was enough to be disruptive.

Big plump Bear fans yelling DA BEARS crack me up! open on exterior, Ditka's Restaurant ]

[ dissolve to the Round Table, where Bill Swerski and his [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]Chicago [COLOR=blue! important]Bears[/color][/color][/color] Super Fan friends sit, surroundsed by polish sausange and bratwurst ]

Bill Swerski: Good afternoon, my friends, and welcome to "Bill Swerski's Super Fans"! I'm Bill Swerski, and with me, as always, are the Super Fans: Pat Arnold..

Pat Arnold: Hey, Bill.

Bill Swerski: ..Todd O'Conner..

Todd O'Conner: [ while chewing his food ] Bill.

Bill Swerski: ..and Carl Wollarski.

Carl Wollarski: How ya' doing, Bill?

Bill Swerski: Alright, we're talking here, live from Ditka's, in the heart of [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]Chicago[/color][/color], Illinois. The city of big shoulders, and home, of course, to a certain football team, which has carved out a special place in the pantheon of [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]professional [COLOR=blue! important]football[/color][/color][/color] greats. That team, which is known the world over, as.. Da Bears!

Superfans: Da Bears!!

Bill Swerski: Okay. Okay, by my watch, we're about thirteen minutes from game time. As you are sure aware, Da Bears are getting ready for the big play-off against Da [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]New [COLOR=blue! important]York [/color][COLOR=blue! important]Giants[/color][/color][/color]. Now, let go around the room for some predictions. Pat?

Pat Arnold: Da Bears, 62 to 3.

Bill Swerski: Okay. Todd.

Todd O'Conner: Bears. 79-zip.

Bill Swerski: Oh, really? You don't think that Da Giants will score?

Todd O'Conner: No, I do not! Da [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]Bears [COLOR=blue! important]defense[/color][/color][/color] is like a wall. You can't go through it!

Bill Swerski: Alright. How about you, Carl?

Carl Wollarski: I say Bears, 52 to 14.

Pat Arnold: Oh, what? Come on!

Carl Wollarski: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I gotta give Da Giants credit - I think they'll give Da Bears a game!

Bill Swerski: Alright, leave him alone, that's his prerogative! As for my prediction.. at game's end, uh.. there won't be two teams of contrasting moods heading off da field, my friends. One gloom, one gleeful. The gleeful, of which be.. Da Bears!

Superfans: Da Bears!!

Bill Swerski: 74 to 2! I mean, after all, our civic pride is on the line. Because, let's face it, if [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]New [COLOR=blue! important]York[/color][/color][/color] were to somehow beat Chicago, we'd never hear the end of it.

Todd O'Conner: Aw, they would love it over there!

Bill Swerski: You know, it's absurd, really, that we would even have to waste our time comparing ourselves to that crime-ridden rathole!

Carl Wollarski: Absolutely!

Bill Swerski: I mean, for example, which building would you rather have - the Empire State Building, or Da Sears Tower? Pat?

Pat Arnold: Sears.

Bill Swerski: Carl?

Carl Wollarski: Sears is taller.

Bill Swerski: Todd?

Todd O'Conner: Sears.

Carl Wollarski: Sears!

Superfans: Da Sears!!

Bill Swerski: Alright, alright! Now, let me shift gears here for a moment. What is God's role in this? Obviously, he's rooting for Da Bears.

Pat Arnold: Otherwise, he wouldn't have put 'em in Chicago.

Carl Wollarski: That's right.

Bill Swerski: That's right. Da question is: Now, did God create Da Bears, and make them superior to all teams? Or is he simply a huge fan, and Ditka made them superior to all other teams?

Carl Wollarski: That's a tough one.

[ Waitress interrupts ]

Waitress: Alright, guys, here's your food. Who had da bratwurst?

Pat Arnold: I had da bratwurst.

Waitress: Alright. Bratwurst. [ places down tray ]

Carl Wollarski: I had da Polish sausage!

Todd O'Conner: I ordered a knockwurst and pork chops!

Bill Swerski: Yeah.. please, next time, bring da food during da commercials, darling, alright?

Waitress: Just doing my job.

Bill Swerski: Yeah, alright.

[ Waitress exits ]

Todd O'Conner: Could you pass the ketchup?

Bill Swerski: Okay, well.. I see now that it's almost time for the foregone conclusion that is today's game.

Pat Arnold; Not gonna be pretty!

Todd O'Conner: Bears!

Superfans: Bears!!

Bill Swerski: Now, gentlemen, let me ask you this: What if Da Bears were all 14 inches tall, you know, about so high? Now, what's your score of today's game?

Carl Wollarski: Against Da Giants?

Bill Swerski: Yes, give 'em a handicap.

Carl Wollarski: Bears 18, Giants 10. And that would finally be a good game.

Pat Arnold: Yeah, it would be a good game. Mini Bears 24, Giants 14.

Todd O'Conner: What about Ditka? Would he be mini, too?

Bill Swerski: No, he would be full-grown.

Todd O'Conner: Oh, then, uh.. Mini Bears 31, Giants 7.

Carl Wollarski: Oh, hold on. Then I change mine, too. I thought it was Mini Ditka.

Bill Swerski: Okay, gentlemen, another scenario: Da Bears, they don't make it, the plane is delayed.. and the only one who shows up is Ditka. Ditka vs. Da Giants. Okay, score, gentlemen.

Pat Arnold: Alright, after da heart attack, I gotta say Ditka 17, Giants 14. He just barely gets by.

Bill Swerski: Alright, that sounds exciting. Perhaps, you know, a late Ditka field goal.

Todd O'Conner: Bears!

Superfans: Bears!!

[ Danny Sheridan enters round table discussion ]

Bill Swerski: Hey! As you fans know, sports celebrities like to frequent Ditka's. And oddsmaker Danny Sheridan has just sat down with us. Now, Danny.. what would the point spread be for a game like that? Ditka vs. Da Giants. Now, remember, it's only Ditka, not the regular Bears team.

Danny Sheridan: Okay. I'm gonna say the Giants by about.. [ thinking ] ..800.

Bill Swerski: Great, Danny. Now, are you from New York?

Carl Wollarski: He lives in New York, eh, Pat?

Bill Swerski: You like it there. You can stay there, as far as I'm concerned.

Danny Sheridan: No, it's just that.. it's one guy, you know-

Bill Swerski: Yeah, that's alright. Just take your crack pipe and go home! Get outta here, Danny!

Todd O'Conner: Yeah, go shoot somebody with a gun!

[ Danny Sheridan exits the room ]

Bill Swerski: Alright, now let's get back to our discussion. Bears vs. the Assembled Choir of Heavenly Angels.

Pat Arnold: The whole choir?

Bill Swerski: Well, Saraphone, Jerebone - the whole nine yards.

Pat Arnold: Angels.

Carl Wollarski: Angels, but it's close.

Todd O'Conner: Bears!

Bill Swerski: Alright. Ditka vs. God in a golf match. Now, he's a good golfer.

Pat Arnold: Ditka.

Todd O'Conner: Dit-ka!

Carl Wollarski: Ditka.

Bill Swerski: Well, I see they're setting up the 40-foot screen, so I guess it's game time. Now, you enjoy the game, folks. Now, remember, next week - Bears-Niners. Alright, now Bears vs Stephen Douglas in a debate, what do you think?

Superfans: Da Bears!! Da Bears!

[ fade ]

Give JohnsonFan a break. He is merely showing us that he is awake during his English class.

During the second quarter I sat in the BullPen pub area to finish my burger as I was one of the unfortunate ones stuck in traffic and arrived late. At one point I heard the very loud cheer and was ready to cheer myself, only to find that it was for the Bears. They were out in huge numbers and let their voices be heard. The assumption that the Texans fans were loud at the wrong time could be inaccurate.

Re: Crowd at Bears game
 
Not sure if anyone has looked at Giants preseason games where it might be 40% full. Preseason games are when many people give tickets away, don't show up at all, or look at it on TV. So I wouldn't read much into the stadium not being packed.

I really don't understand the bashing of the fans that were there. Atleast they went to the damned game and made some noise. People get pissed because fans are too quiet, now pissed because fans make too much noise. Next thing I am going to read is fans standing up too much or Mojo giving too much beer!!! I think some people are not happy unless they are complaining.

Wow, you have no room to be correcting people's spelling or word usage on here. Just go back and look at some of your posts. You are constantly jacking words up!
