If any of you reside out of Houston, your input would really help us. For Houston people, if you could help share this survey link with anyone in those areas and have them spread the word as well, we would really appreciate it. We think it is crucial to get feedback from not just members of this board, but general NFL fans who don't have an allegiance yet so we can pinpoint challenges and devise creative strategies to help them join the Texans community. Thanks again. We really appreciate your help.
I'm taking the survey Gary, and I'm not being critical but here's my feedback...
As to "Why?" a Texans fan:
How can you "grow up watching the team?" I assume this is angled more for Cowboys fans. I grew up watching the Oilers and LOATHED the Cowboys--so which one does that make me?
"How would you rate Cowboys media coverage in your area?"
Which one do I check for: "TOO FREAKIN' MUCH!!!"
My biggest complaint (not on the survey) is that there needs to be MUCH MORE MERCHANDISING done for the Texans!
I've lived in:
And all over Texas
And there is Dallas Cowboys CRAP all of the U.S.
I can go to Beaumont and I'm lucky if I can find 1 or 2 different types of Texans cap. We need to ratchet up on Texans Gear!
More, more, more...
