As for the Texans fans...(outside of Reliant) We are the "Loch Ness Monsters" of fans....you see pictures of us and every once in a while you hear from us on radio and TV but finding them in large groups is rare and getting your hands on them nearly impossible(especially outside of Houston).
See it is this stuff that gives Texans fans a bad name. The description was so far off and comments like yours make the fanbase seem petty and like there is an inferiority problem. Many good Cowboy fans are around and a many spent their lives watching them. It is funny how within the NFC East the rivalries are so steep that most fans from all the fanbases talk. All of them dislike each other. Yet people here act like Cowboy fans are all the same, the only ones that talk, etc. I mean Hook em, a Giants guy, was talking rudely about the Boys the other day. Is that acceptable because its the Cowboys?As a rival it doesn't bother me but people need to stop acting like one fanbase does it. Stereotypes, in general, are plain silly. In the long run, just like in real life, it is a few who reinforce it while there are many living their regular lives that don't support it. There are many Cowboy fans on this board, all good people, all who don't talk alot. Most of us came from the area or grew up from the 70s watching the team. Most of us are from families that watched them. Friends too. All good, normal people working and watching games. Bad seeds at games or in certain cities don't make fanbases.

Just from what I've read here from old schoolers and and from what I've seen and heard out there the best thing for Texans fans is to make their own identity and stop trying to be obsessed with being better than the Cowboys. Whether it be friendly tailgaters, etc. The team is talented and will win. Then you go from there. What shouldn't happen is having the "little brother syndrome" and always comparing themselves to the Cowboys or this random Dallas v Houston thing. The Oilers did it successfully. Alot of these thoughts aren't mine. I've actually seen alot of good Texans fans say it here. I mean look at the thread below this about the November showdown. It is looking to pick a fight instead of discuss the game. How is that a good way to do things?
