There are no Texans' ads on the Radio, TV, Newspaper encouraging ticket sales or promotional events for the team.(not much better in Austin I hear)
The easy excuse is to say that that SA is south Dallas and just bend over for Jerry's team. I on the other hand will not give up to a team that hurts my city. I live here and I have met and seen tons of Texans fans here in SA It may be true that there are alot of Cowboy fans here (trust me we know) However, there are Texans fans here as well. I have proof and pictures of a crowded BWW full of Texans fans when they were taken off of TV.
San Antonio is the #1 destination city for Houstonian transplants in the state of Texas. Alot of Houstonians have family here and their families love the Texans. Also, San Antonio is military city Texas and there are thousands of residents who cant stand the Cowboys , but dont have the outlet to root against them or another local team to root for. The Astros have a strong fanbase here and I believe it is because they have a good marketing team willing to reach out into this market. We need to enourage the Texans to do the same. I believe that now is the time to start laying the groundwork for the Texans fanbase to exapnd here in SA.
There is already a good fanbase here, they are just not well connected. We just need to find ways to connect them, not only to other fans but to the organization to let them know we are here and we love our Texans.
I need all Texans fans to come together and figure out how we can get the organization to reach out to the fans here in SA. We need to voice our concern that SA Texans fans often are ignored by the organization.
I need to see a "good faith" effort from the Texans fans of SA. What I would like to see is Texans Fans of SA egg that Nick Tyler at one of their stations outings. He's the guy that ambushed the Texans traveling group and the Texans Cheerleaders. Give Nick a little payback!!
